Projects

Steamed Veggies:

Steamed Veggies is my active comic project, starting in December 2015 and updating once a week on Fridays. It is a slice-of-life, semi-autobiographical comic strip, focusing on real-life stories, events, and friendship. I recently self-published a collected volume of these comics, dating from December 2015 to August 2017, and more are being made every week. You can find all of the comics here.

Firewood:

A three-part comic finished in August 2017 reflecting on MaxFunCon East 2016, friendship, meeting people you admire, and moments that can define an entire year. You can find the comic here.

Hometown Ghosts:

A comic finished in May 2016 reflecting on life a year after college; on meaning, creative and emotional listlessness, and breaking down self-made barriers to create your life. Hometown Ghosts is a 21-page comic, avaliable for pay-what-you-want download on Gumroad.

Paper Cranes:

My BFA thesis project, completed at Bowling Green State University in 2015--an interactive visual novel that follows the story of Hase, a young, troubled rabbit girl, as she attempts to escape from the Cells, a metaphysical prison crafted from her own insecurities and anxieties. It is also accompanied with research on how video game development can function as art therapy. Paper Cranes is currently avaliable for download on Gumroad, for pay-what-you-want.

Aetas:

An eight-page comic finished in May 2015 about what we leave behind when we die. Aetas is a completed short, you can read it here.

SHIFT/STATE:

A comic completed in 2012 about a rabbit named Star and her journey to understand herself and the world around her. Paradigm Shift is the first half of this journey, exploring specific worldviews and self-reflection into the own lens through which she views the world. Dream State is the second half of this journey, dealing with Star's personal struggles and self-acceptance. Dream State is on indefinite hiatus.

After the Fall:

An online interactive comic complted in 2012 with "choose your own adventure" elements. The story is enriched through user mouse interactivity, with panels revealing different elements if they are clicked or hovered over. You can read it here.
