I've created a number of short comics over the years, as a way to experiment with style and storytelling. I've collected them all here so they can all be seen together. I feel like I tried a different style/approach in each one, and learned a lot with each of them.
The Cottage was my first attempt at a comic. It was for an SVS Learn competition in 2015, and the prompt was "Amanda was disappointed when they got to the cottage because..."
The Lonely Dragon
I was largely ignorant of comics outside of superhero stories and Sunday funnies until college. One of my Illustration classmates loved comics, and as a way to practice he challenged himself to tell an entire story in a single page. I thought it was an interesting exercise and wanted to give it a try myself. The challenge for me was to think of a story that could be told in such a small space. I eventually realized that even if the story wasn't necessarily humorous, the Sunday funnies I read as a kid would help a lot in this exercise--using just a few panels to establish a set up, conflict, and payoff. The Lonely Dragon was the result of that experiment.
This comic was made for Served: A Missionary Comics Anthology, which was kickstarted in 2018.
There Was an Old Woman Tossed Up In a Basket
This is an old nursery rhyme I heard growing up, and I decided to do my own interpretation of it in comic form. I decided to modernize a few of the phrases to make it more kid-friendly, though kept others that I liked as they were... basically, I do what I want 😉. You can see some different versions of the rhyme here.
