In July my partner and I travelled to Northern BC. We took 400 photos of the most incredible scenery in the world. I sketched the other stuff.
This is the first multi-page comic I did, I think. It is a collection of journal entries and drawings from when my mother was sick with Alzheimer’s, from about 1998 to her death in 2004. I put it together in a few days in August of 2005. The last few pages ended up in the UBC non-fiction journal, Fugue. I might put them up here soon. There are other things in the comic that I don’t think I would want online, though, like sketches of my mom as she was dying. Things like that, you look back and you can’t believe you actually did them. I mean, maybe it was a weird thing to do. And how could I even hold a pencil at the time?
These are two short zines I wrote last year.
Spin Sugar is about one of the ways in which my parents ruined my childhood. Click on the image to read the full comic in pdf.
Why Bother Writing At All is the angst-filled chronicle of my development as a writer, from the early poems (age eight) to my present state of trying to focus on telling stories as opposed to stressing about getting published.
pdf coming soon.
This comic is a result of taking an undergrad literary criticism class.
