Heyyyyyyyyoooo HAPPY NEW YEAR and stuff! Hey, I wrote a bit about my 2014 year artistically over on my tumblr. Basically, it was a good year for my ZINES, self-published comics Arem, Dream Skills & Sun Bakery. 2015 will be more self-published comics, and hopefully more mainstream published material as well.

Anyway, recent art as of late:

I’m pretty into this mirroring effect lately. Definitely gonna make more pieces like this.

Marker draws:

Some of these are going out to backers of the SUN BAKERY kickstarter. Thanks to all who supported that!

I *will* probably be doing another KS to reprint Sun Bakery, or perhaps a new mini-collection (or both). Also, I’ll probably be doing a new online comic soon, with Patreon backing. So stay tuned for that!

October Art


I have a store front / item shop (for all you RPG lovers) where you can exchange your diamonds– i mean MONEY for comic books and art prints and the like.

I’ll take a quick minute to describe the works that are available there now!


“Xasha and Puff are two girls surviving in the big city, where poison spike clouds are common and the social culture is swordplay.”

This is the first installment of a new lil mini zine comic project. I (like many people, I’ve discovered) have entertained the notion of WHAT IF *swords* were the main form of “dispute settlement” in our modern age instead of GUNS. we’re talking face-to-face artistry versus mathematic systematic destruction. So, DREAM SKILLS is a bit of that– a bit of a world run by swords– but it’s also about two girls coming to terms with this world, and the regular problems that we all sometimes encounter. DREAM SKILLS– part ONE of THREE installments.


“Arem Lightstorm is a space documentarian who finds herself in troubling terrestrial situations. A ‘Metroid’ tribute comic.”

Yep it’s a METROID tribute comic. Are you familiar with that game? Space exploration, cool girl with a robot suit, etc. My version here though, is technically my own character. Her name is AREM, not Samus. She’s clearly inspired by the things– but it’s it’s own story. Mostly it’s about her taking picture of space creatures, lush vistas, etc– and a bit of strife. Also, this is my first all-digitally drawn comic.

PAISLEY art print

This is an 11×18″ four-color high quality screenprint of one of my favorite recent illustrations. Each one is signed & numbered (out of 85 prints). It’s sold & shipped through Flynn Prints (a friend of mine from Portland), so you don’t have to worry about MY slack ass taking forever with shipping (He’s much more professional than me). “PAISLEY” is a comic I plan on crushing soon– about a girl with a giant robot, escaping social confines. Stoked about it. Get in on this ground-level exclusive limited edition art print shit, okay?? Flynn got a family to feed.

*All the COMIC items here are digital .PDF versions viewable on your home computer, tablet device or cell phone. (the art print is a physical item that will be sent to you)

That’s all for now! But stay hype coz there will be LOTS MORE popping up on this ITEM SHOP very soon! <3


In the world of DREAM SKILLS, guns have been rendered useless and everyone uses swords now. Not just for battle, but as the ultimate “life accessory”. Follow the story of Xasha and Puff, two girls trying to make it in a city of swordfights, poison fog, and tyrant baristas. DREAM SKILLS #1 will debut at Rose City Comic Con, September 20th and 21st. I’ll be at table T-06 with my friend Laura Graves!

There is a new website for the graphic novel UUUP!!
