I make comics because I think the intersection of still images and the written word creates magic that neither can create on their own. I make comics because I'm a storyteller with a million ideas and the itch to communicate them all visually. I make comics because it's the creative activity that makes me happy day in and day out. Also, when I get to write for myself, I make comics to create the kind of queer, diverse content that I was starved for growing up; that thing about creating the kind of content you want to see in the world is 100% my M.O.

Here's some examples of my work from Jem and the Holograms: Infinite, Clean Work, and Long Haul.





Supporting this Patreon gets you access to my output in one single location, with a lot of candid process talk and early looks at upcoming work. If you've followed me online for any amount of time, you'll know I am a little cagey and compartmentalize my work possibly beyond reason. I'm also a total lurker. Inside this Patreon, however, is all the stuff in one place with all the chatter that goes on in my head. It's literally nowhere else.

Financial support here on Patreon goes directly into me making more work- giving me the flexibility to choose projects I care about and facilitating taking the time to create personal work. Thanks for taking a look, and thank you for your interest in the comics I make. It means the world to me!

I will hire a flatter (this is a person who separates a comic page into color shapes, before a colorist comes in and decides the palette/rendering. at this point I am my own flatter and it is a timesink) at above-average industry rates.
