I am working on a longer comics project, a work of graphic medicine. In the meantime, I am making shorter comics and zines. You can find a recent comic, “Mile High, Mile Deep,” in the 2022 climate edition of Ecotone magazine.
In January, 2022 I participated in fourteenfifteen gallery‘s Fun-A-Day show, which asked that artists create something every day for the month. I made diary comics and collected each day’s entries into a zine, “Looking for a Charm of Finches: A January Comic.”
Opening reception: Friday, February 18, 6-10pm.
Closing reception: Friday, March 18, 6-10 pm.
Appointments by request.
From diary comics to graphic memoir, autobiographix encompasses the full range of nonfiction comics. Along with Nora Hickey, I co-edit a biweekly newsletter about this genre of comics at autobiographix.substack.com. We post interviews with comics creators, reviews of graphic memoirs, research and discoveries about the history of autobio comics, musings about story and style, and share news about related events and opportunities. Sign up at the site to have it delivered directly to your inbox.
