︎Samples of my Past and Current Book Projects︎

 

These are some samples of my current book projects, to be completed by and sold at Autopic. 



  ‘Untitled Bike Memoir’ 2024


An in progress memoir in graphite and colored pencil about a bike trail I frequented and took photos of for 6 years, and how the space has changed over the years. It is still in progress but will be completed by Autopic. It is part of my series about biking with my brother. 









‘Tall Bike: Liminal Evening’,’ 2021



Tall Bike Liminal Evening is a 14-paqe collection of 11 monotype prints. Here is one of the accordian books on display at my comics exhbition. The prints are inpsired by screenshots of a video call with my brother in which he directly streamed his bikeride to me. I interpreted the ride through the disorted phone call through monotype. Inidudvual prints from the book will also be sold at Autopic. 











‘Diondra and The Big Button Moment’ 2024




A short silly comic featuring characters from my ‘Diondra’ series. It has a few pages left but is nearly complete.
















‘The Invitation’ and New Story


2022-23, 8 Pages (16 when completed) 
The Invitation is a saphhic love story about a woman who uses magic to turn water into plants prepares for a date. The comic, orginally designed for web and can be read on by website, I am redrawing with extra scenes and reprinting as an accordian book (to maintain the unique blend of tradional comic and scroll
format) with ‘The Invitation’ on one side and a new story with the same characters on the other side.





‘Artbook about my Characters’


I have been working on a comic for a long time featuring my two characters, of whom I have also drawn a lot of art and mini comics of. I am working on collecting these comics and artwork into a limited artbook where I talk about my characters and process. Below is some of the artwork that would be featured. It will be a combination of finished pieces and sketches with text. 









‘Ghost Prints’, 2022



Ghost Prints is a surreal 60 page completed memoir about having deja vu four times over a short span of time while dealing with the stresses of being a student, COVID, and caught in between family troubles. It’s name comes from the effect of drawing on newsprint, wherein the light from the scan caused the “Ghost Prints” of the previous pages to shine through. It will be reprinted with a new introduction contextualizing the comic for Autopic.


 


︎Zines︎

 




‘THE TALL BIKE’ 


2021, 8 pages 
A memory recalling riding with my brother on his first, neon orange iteration of his homemade Tall Bike, with a handcolored bike on the last page of each zine.

‘TOP 15 EGG CHARACTERS!!’

Previous zine fest attendents were disappointed my joke idea for a zine was not made a reality. Be disappointed no more! Now you can know the top 15 egg characters, all with nice little brush pen illustrations. The top three get their own separate zine when you flip it inside out. One of my sillier zines, made in 2024, 16 Pages.
