“Despite my experiments with different forms of media, making comics has always been my gut reaction to approaching subject matter since I was a formative age. Narrative art allows me to tell stories I believe should exist in the world, whether it comes to ideas about relationships and non-binary gender identities or curious interpretations of horror and conspiracy theories.”
