About

I'm a a cartoonist, illustrator and zine-maker  living in Minneapolis. My graphic novel, A Quick And Easy Guide To They/Them Pronouns was published with Limerence Press/Oni Press and has been praised by School Library Journal (starred review) and one of YALSA's Great Graphic Novels For Teens. My newest graphic novel, Grease Bats was released by BOOM! Studios in fall 2019. I recently released  Flagging 101, published by the wonderful Silver Sprocket and I have a young adult non-fiction comic forthcoming from First Second.

I've been featured on Autostraddle, Vice, The New Yorker, and The Nib. You can find my comics online, in anthologies, and self-published mini-comics and zines.

My vision for my work is solid–I create art and stories that are enjoyable, approachable and, most importantly, gay and good.

You also get to see a ton of my illustrative work too!

By supporting me, you're not just giving me more time to create and draw, but also allowing me to continue to experiment and evolve my comic style. You are helping me to publish my work and keep it accessible and cheap, most of my comics are five dollars or less. I want to be creating beautiful and thoughtful work, but also want it available for anyone who wants it, whether that be free online or spending a few dollars on a physical copy. You are also helping to support a queer artist and activist. 

My artistic goal for my next graphic novel is to create a fictional story about four mid-life queers-Sunday Brunch. This will be unlike any of my previously published worked. A Quick And Easy Guide To They/Them Pronouns is an educational non-fiction comic. Grease Bats is a collection of serialized comics centering around a queer group of twenty-somethings navigating friendships, romances and roommates within their community. There’s very little representation of mid-life queers. I want my artistic career to age with me.

I want to create queer stories for a life-span.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

If I can get 75 supporters then DAMN! I will be all up in my feelings! Really this means I can take less "busy-work". A significant amount of my time is spend pitching and writing and working on articles, essays, and illustrations that aren't relevant or interesting to my community. I'll be able to say "NO" to projects that are simply freelance illustrations I need to do to get by.
