1. Where are you currently based?
Springfield! I live near Downtown Springfield and have a studio space where I work and teach art, in a great shared space above Sprout! Food hub.
2. How would you describe what you do? If you're an artist/collective, where do you get your ideas? If you are a distro/publisher, how do you find your artists?
I call myself an illustrator, even when most of what I am working on is large scale painting or other personal work... I am always spurred to create by stories, or archetypes from stories... or even just the feelings left over from stories... so feel like my process is more similar to illustration work than anything else. I’m working on a series of fairytale illustrations at the moment that I’m really into right now. I am always chipping away at my long-term graphic novel project, The Micanopy Murders, of which the first issue is published and books two and three are deep in the works.
3. What is the last comic or zine you read?
Adrian Tomine’s Killing and Dying
4. What do you like about zine/comics festivals?
Seeing other artists and their work! Scrolling through work of artists I love from the comfort of my studio can only go so far, there’s nothing like seeing work in person and being surrounded by likeminded creators.
5. What are you most excited about that you'll have at EUZINE Fest?
A platform to show my work, to see and be seen.
6. Do you have any upcoming projects or other events you'll be partaking in?
I’ll have a show up at Lincoln Gallery in December- it’s always fun and inspiring to have a venue to get my work out to.
