Trying to keep things loose, clear, and story-focused.  I think I've finally found an efficient method that works, so stay tuned (for real this time) for future updates!

"For Alexandria" - an FFIX fancomic

Now it's no secret I'm a huge nerd, so enjoy this story I did for Zac Gorman's Final Fantasy IX anthology, the Tantalus Theater Review (release TBA).


Growing up on the Final Fantasy series had a big impact on me creatively, and FFIX was no exception.  First hearing about the project, I was instantly inspired to come up with something.  As it usually goes, however, what started as a quick project for fun turned into something much more serious and time consuming.  Despite that, I had a ton of fun writing/drawing/coloring the story and I hope you enjoy reading it (whether you've played the original game or not)!

...and to anyone curious who hasn't, I've provided a short list of referential notes after the jump!


PS: Huge thanks to Nate, James, Kat, and Deb for their help with color-flats!

Explorer: The Mystery Boxes


"Explorer: The Mystery Boxes" is the newest comics anthology from Kazu Kibuishi, and the spiritual successor to Flight!  Within are seven stories that each pursue the question "What's in the box?," featuring:

Under the Floorboards by Emily Carroll
Spring Cleaning by Dave Roman & Raina Telgemeier
The Keeper's Treasure by Jason Caffoe
The Butter Thief by Rad Sechrist
Whatzit by Johane Matte
The Escape Option by Kazu Kibuishi
The Soldier's Daughter by Stuart Livingston!

Working on this project was a tremendous opportunity, and perhaps the greatest learning experience I've had as a storyteller.  I'm beside myself knowing my story is being published alongside such talented cartoonists, and can hardly wait for you guys to read it!

Hourly Comics Day

Yep!  Third post in three days - not sure if I've ever been that consistent before.  Anyway...

This year I decided to participate in Hourly Comics Day!  It was my first time doing this, so excuse the rushed, sloppy drawings.  It was interesting though, reflecting upon and drawing a moment per hour.  The day feels so much longer, and you become much more aware of every little miniscule or major event.

When you finish, check out these other great HCD comics!:
