About


Hi, my name is Kris Black.
I write & draw stories for comics and children's books.

I'm actively working on getting published as an author and illustrator of children's books.

Read on to find out how your support can make this happen!

My Comic Strip, Little Hiccups

Little Hiccups is my comic strip featuring cute, quirky and (sometimes) funny gags of two best friends, Hugo and Flynn, talking about non-important stuff.

Over the years, Little Hiccups has been a fun activity I've done during Inktober. It's now an on-going comic strip.  

My First Children's Book, DONUTS!

The first book I'm working on has the working title, DONUTS! I've written the story, edited the story, and had several professionals in the children's literature industry edit the story. I'm currently in the middle of illustrating the art.

The story is about a little girl whose invention causes a disastrous but yummy mess. She'll be in big trouble if the mess isn't cleaned up before her parents get home.

The manuscript is ready for submission, but before I send it off I need to create a picture book dummy to send to agents.

Other Stories I'm Working On

I like to balance my time between 2-3 stories. This allows me take a break from a story when I feel stuck.


My second story I'm writing and illustrating, Paper, is targeted at younger readers and explores creative ways kids can have fun with sheets of paper.


A third book is only in the idea phase, but I have fun sketches and illustrations exploring ideas about a boy with really, really long legs.

How Your Support Will Help

As a patron, you can directly support me creating and publishing children's books.

For the sake of total transparency, I resigned my part-time position and ownership over a small business I co-founded so I could work on my children's books. I do have a day job that pays our family bills. I'm always looking toward the future, and I know that one day I want to be a full-time children's book writer and illustrator. With your help, we can make this happen.

I hope you consider becoming a patron and supporting my children's books.

Sincerely,
Kris
