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.

Quadrants Writer/Collaborator/Sasquatch Dave Scheidt posted a link to this article from nofilmschool yesterday, which talks about using “quadrants” to compose frames in film. This was the first I’d ever heard the term “quadrants” in relation to composition (though there’s plenty out there on the “Rule of Thirds”), so I checked it out. I nearly clicked away … Continue reading

Scary Comics for Kids
