  • WELCOME!

    If you're into drawing, making comics, reading, writing, and knowing more about creative processes, you're in the right place!

    I'm a picture-maker living in Utah and have a deep passion for storytelling in its myriad forms and in making pictures. My first graphic novel, Upside Down: A Vampire Tale is available from Top Shelf Productions and my children's book, The Adventures of William Worm, is available from Piggy Press.

    This blog is the new home for my works-in-progress, finished comics, calls for entries and whatever else you didn't ask for.
