I love comics. They’re a style of visual storytelling that spans the funny to the profound. Blending art and words in a unique way can convey messages and feelings not possible by just one or the other. Plus they’re really fun to read.

Amira and Sadie are two very different princesses who decide to take their happily ever after into their own hands. Princess Princess was my first attempt at a longer comic narrative, and I hope one that depicts different kinds of female strength and relationships.
Awarded best book/graphic novel and shortlisted for best overall comic in the first annual Autostraddle Comic and Sequential Art Awards.
A story that explores what it’s like to lose something you never had, and the frustration that will surely come to future generations who can’t believe what humans squandered.

Inspired by Gothic fairytales and their ink or etched illustrations, a story about a girl with eyes like a cat that are cursed to bring bad luck wherever she goes.
Though a little dated, this was my first finished comic and the online response to it remains a huge source of happiness to me. Hundreds of people contacted me to tell me they understood its meaning and that it brought them comfort or hope. Loneliness is something many of us relate to, and the desire to simply have one person to help us through the hard times.
More of a coloured storyboard than a finished comic, drawn to the lyrics of a song by Japanese rock group BUMP OF CHICKEN about two kids who are separated by a train line.
