I am an artist based in New York City, the author of 1-800-MICE, INFOMANIACS, and Art Comic.
I make film, video, comics, theater, music, animation....a large spectrum of projects, most of which are narrative. More can be learned from the website Mrswilliamhorsley.com.

I am posting MR COLOSTOMY, an ongoing comic strip, for $3 per month. It is hard to describe, but "Surrealist noir detective fairy tale" would come close. It is based around the principles of Scheherazadism (named after the author of the Arabian Nights who kept herself alive by enclosing story within story), and Parapraxism, a term derived from psychiatry meaning the honoring of mistakes as revealing hidden intentions. To that end, it is not pre drawn in pencil, and is allowed to deviate during drawing from a loose script or outline. The strip originated as a web comic posted on Instagram in 2016, and collected in two self-published books. The first iteration of MR COLOSTOMY on Patreon concluded January 2019.  It has been revived as of April 2019 with the new storyline The Gargoyle Carvers.

The Frugal Anchovy is an ongoing neo-realist prose novel including illustrations. This project is available for a $1 subscription.

I love serialized narrative because of the importance of communicating directly and frequently to my readership. This is why I have always made comics and zines as well as other forms of art.

Thanks!
