Tell us a bit about yourself:
Well I’m a recent graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design’s Sequential Art Masters program and have been doing freelance artwork for the past few years. I’ve been published with companies, like Slave Labor Graphics, Mascot Books, Zuda Comics and 803 Studios. But what I’m most proud of is my first graphic novella that was distributed through Arctic Wolf Publishing, called My Dog is a Superhero. The book’s an old school Saturday morning inspired tale about a ten year-old afro-puffed diva-to-be, named Ashleigh who finds a cute little blue dog who turns out to be the kid-hero Wolfboy. And much to her chagrin, she ends up helping him catch other evil aliens disguised as pets, like the villainous Kid Squid. The comic came out last year and I’m hard at work on another one. I also just finished up a children’s book called Nadia’s Jewelry Box for HeartHead Publishing which should be out this month. I spend the rest of my time reading comics, playing Murmasa, and co-hosting a podcast for SCAD called Seqa Lab, with the occasional party thrown in for good measure.
I also have an unhealthy love of late 90’s pop music.
