HELLO!

We're Tara Kurtzhals and Sarah Bollinger, and together we are Open Field Studio!

The two of us met as freshmen on the first day of our college orientation and pretty much instantly began working as creative partners. Over the past couple of years, we've focused our attention on developing webcomics, and now that we're out of college, we would love nothing more than to make our projects our full-time career!

With your help, we hope to survive the beginning of our adult lives and maybe even eat dinner every night!

Girls Have A Blog is our first venture into comics and was conceived by a semester of too many late nights, too much pretzel pizza, and zero aspirations for homework. It was created to help ourselves laugh about a rough school year, and over two years after its debut in February 2015, we're still laughing!

In June of 2017, Girls Have A Blog became a featured comic on Line Webtoon.

Thanks to our experience working on Girls Have A Blog, we decided to take on another, more creatively demanding comic project:

Knight & Beard:
Tapastic | Webtoons | Tumblr | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram

Knight and Beard is a buddy comedy set in the medieval times. Knight is an unruly noblewoman who dreams of becoming a hero, but her privileged upbringing hinders her in battle. Beard, on the other hand, is a man with the build of a warrior but a gentle and loving soul. The unlikely pair set out to break the established traditions of their world, but can't help causing a few major mishaps along the way...
