Introduction My work examines the subtle horrors and tense neuroses in everyday moments. I make comics with subject matter ranging from stories of typical people interacting in mundane relationships to the strange and obscene. A recent piece told the tale of an odd stranger attempting to cross from one train car into another by means of an ornate, ritualistic mask. Having worked exclusively in black and white, in the future I hope to explore new possibilities with color, as well as delving into burgeoning internet-based formats.
