INTRODUCTION

I am a writer and illustrator best known for my graphic novel The Poet and the Flea about the poet-painter William Blake and for my illustrations in Scared Stiff: Everything You Need to Know About 50 Famous Phobias by Sara Latta (Zest Books).

Fall 2015, I finished illustrating volume one of The Poet and the Flea and ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to self-publish and print it. Now, I am working on volumes two and three.

I am also working on another graphic novel called The Plague and Doctor Caim about a 17th-Century plague doctor and a webcomic called Pawn My Soul about a sin-eater named Lilith. Moreover, I have a number of future graphic novels in the works as well as illustrated zines, freelance projects, and other creative projects of various shapes and sizes.

By becoming a patron, you are supporting my work as a writer and illustrator. I hope that my patrons will help me eventually become a full-time writer and illustrator. 


Patrons will gain access to special never-before-seen content that won't be posted anywhere else!

The Poet and the Flea
is a reimagining of the life of the poet-painter William Blake. Set in 1790, at the onset of The Industrial Revolution, William suffers from the death of his beloved younger brother, Robert. Catherine (Kate) Blake attempts to comfort her husband, but cannot dispel his grief. During this spell of anxiety, William is visited by an ominous creature: The Ghost of the Flea. The Flea reveals a vested interest in William’s spiritual well-being — the result of an unorthodox wager. Will William triumph over The Flea’s sinister meddling? Or will he fall victim to The Flea’s corruption?


The Plague and Doctor Caim follows the life of a 17th-century plague doctor: an Everyman with a beak. One day, Doctor Caim is hired by a village to treat both the rich and the poor. He readily accepts this position, but goes about his work with much trial and error. With the aesthetic of a medieval illustrated manuscript, this graphic novel finds dark humor within the history of the Black Death.


My original character Hello Blob. Disturbingly “kawaii,” Hello Blob is a strange, little satire on a certain well-known Japanese kitty.


Pawn My Soul: Lilith is a sin-eater: someone who is paid to take on the sins of those who have recently died. One day, she is hired to pawn her soul for Old Man Jasper by his son Thomas. From that point on, she becomes irreversibly involved in Jasper family affairs, which ultimately leads to tragedy.
