I'm a comic artist, scientific illustrator, and art educator currently living and working in Fort Worth, Texas. For most of my comics career, I've been combining research with graphic storytelling to help make sense of some really interesting scientific research. I've worked with a narwhal biologist, neon sign artists, a flu virologist, and a marine ecologist. I believe that creating nonfiction graphic works can educate, inspire, and change the way we look at the world.

Patreon is a unique platform to share my work with fans because it allows people like you who like my work to contribute a monthly donation of your choosing to help fund my creation. In exchange, you'll be a part of a community that receives special perks, bonus comics and illustrations that the public doesn't see, and some candid views into my studio and working process.

Earlier this year I wrote and illustrated a 40-page comic called "Poor Coyote!" about the misadventures of a coyote told in a stream-of-conscious format. As I worked on it, my Patreon supporters got to read the entire comic in exclusive 5-page segments before the finished comic was published and released!

Your monthly contribution, no matter how large or small, helps provide my creative work with consistent and valuable support. It helps keep the lights on and the pencils sharp, and it gives me a personal reason to keep working on what I love rather than spending more time catering to that random freelance gig or trying to find a part-time job. It also gives you a level of connectivity with me, the creator, that you won't find in any other platform: you become a patron of my work, not only do you support my creative journey, but you get to interact with and guide the its direction!

Thanks for your interest and support!

All of my basic studio needs are met, and I can cover some of the cost of printing extra goods like prints and stationary, some of which goes directly back to my patrons!
