This Party Really Sucksis a comic about how my mom paid me in comics to go to prom.
It was created for Light Grey Art Lab’s STACKS show. Each artist in the show was assigned a year going back to 1984 and was tasked with making a zine that reflected that year. I got 2011, the year I graduated high school. I spent most of my senior year of high school hanging out with a really select few people and reading as many comic books as possible. This evening summed up a large part of that year well for me.
Canning Season, a comic about when you feel things too much and are going to explode.
Healing is a small therapeutic book about healing crystals and their properties. It is a hands on extremely basic beginners guide to the process.
Shown in the "No Faith but What we Make" gallery show at the Clough-Hanson gallery.

Pierre Feuille Ciseaux
Pierre Feuille Ciseaux means Rock Paper Scissors in french. PFC is a workshop usually held in france based on experimental narrative and comic making. The workshop is about collaboration and participation. In 2013 PFC had the opportunity to travel to Minneapolis and have the workshop held at The Minneapolis College of Art and Design. These are a few pieces that were made as individual projects during the class.
The first comic had to be about home and MCAD and existing in both places.
The second had to have the first seven panels be about our child hood and the last three be about our present and future selves.
In the third we were given ten panels and ten random words and we had to make a narrative out of those words.
The last is a rotating comic with dialog provided by fellow classmates.
