I’m a twenty-something graduate student working a restaurant job and living in New York City. You know the type.
I read an article in WIZARD magazine about writing comics when I was twelve or so years old, and I was almost instantly hooked. The “learn more” bit at the end of the article pointed me to the Digital Webbing Forums, which was, I soon discovered, an absolutely thriving hive of raw creativity and intelligent discussion on every aspect of comics creation. Over the next eight years or so, I got a five-star, 100% free comics writing and creating education, from some of the most talented professionals and up-and-comers in the comics game, an experience for which I am and will always be grateful.
Aside from comics, I have dabbled in rapping and music production (for better or for worse, that can all be found here), tattoo design (here; forgive the pseudonym), and play a crap-ton of Xbox like any good twenty-something male should.
As far as my publishing resume, it is a brief one at the moment. But I’ve been re-bitten (if you will) by the bug, and in the past month or so I’ve been itching to make some more comics, so this list will grow, and soon.
