Beautiful people! Here’s the rest of this print and a more  centered blog that will house more printmaking portfolio based pieces. 

Follow this blog if you would like to see more portfolio-centered pieces in addition to stream of consciousness/ process things!

My summer project is to build a professional website, so keep a look out for that as well.

I hate Minnesota winter and the only thing that make it better is making poorly designed chihuahua posters at 1:30 AM.

when i was born, my lungs were filled with fluid and i, a weak, spluttering fish, lay drowning in my own wet skin.  a vestigial tooth, blossoming through the roof of the mouth like a warthog’s tusk, a flower blooming to pneumonia, and breathing through the grainy film of asthma.

Anonymous asked: I love your art! I was especially blown away by your nightmares comic. Do you have a plan for where you'd like to go with it?

Oh wow! That you so much for your kind and anonymous comments. It means a lot to know that people out in the big wide world are looking at the things I do. 

Although the text in that comic is original, the title comes from a line from my favorite book, Jesse Ball and Thordis Bjornsdottir’s Vera and Linus. It was just one of at least a dozen phrases that really got inside my mind and, in the future, I’d love to create more comics inspired by the same source material (with the permission of the two authors, of course.)

 I don’t currently have a story arc or a continuation planned for Atlas of Nightmares as it was written specifically to be a 5 page self-contained comic. I am, however, currently in the works on another comic about using scary black magic to become invisible which will probably be done in the same written and visual style. I can’t provide any guarantees as to when it will be available since, as a full-time printmaking student with a demanding part time job, all my free time goes to Netflix and eating candy. 

Thanks again for all your support and comments!
