These are three self-published zines, available at my online store, Apotheosis Comics in St. Louis, or the occasional comic convention.
Human Sermon (2019) ¶
This is a collection of short strips themed mainly around politics, religion, and the human condition. It concludes with the short story “Bare Fruit”; a retelling of man’s fall from paradise as told by the forbidden fruit.
How I Go To Church (2019) ¶
This is a religious-themed collaboration that includes an assortment of my Birds Without Branches digital collages paired with poems by Stacie Spaunhorst.
No One Gets What They Want Anytime Ever (2016) ¶
This is a collection of my earliest strips, doodles, and diary comics from 2015-2016. The subject matter varies wildly from race, to puns, to loneliness.
The Light Sword Sisters (2020) ¶
This comic book (not available publicly) is an improvised adventure story featuring my five daughters as the protagonists. Inspired by a years-long series of bedtime stories, the Light Sword Sisters, armed only with dollar-store glow sticks that became light swords, encounter larger-than-life creatures and save each other at every turn.
I began experimenting with comics in 2015 as a way to reconnect with the pleasure I got from drawing when I was kid. Like my other works, they were a great medium for getting to be both serious and silly. In keeping with the spirit of child-like experimentation and play, I’ve dabbled in a variety of styles; from simple pen and ink, to watercolor, to digital.
