Multi-page Comics

While not strictly long-form, these are larger comic projects I’ve completed. I primarily work in what I’d call autobiographical-fiction. I admit I made adjustments or misremembered events.

A lot of my work has centered on my sordid and awkward relationship history, but in recent years I’ve moved away from that focus.

SPEAK UP
David Wojnarowicz
a role model for the unheard, 2013

SPEAK UP tells two very different stories at once: my story as I seek to find my voice as an artist and the story of David Wojnarowicz. For those who don’t know about him yet, David Wojnarowicz was a gay New York artist in the 80s and an activist at the height of the culture war and the AIDS pandemic. This was a time when those dying of AIDS were unfairly stigmatized and were at best ignored; at worst, hated. A time when art was to be censored as obscene. Instead of accepting the injustices heaved upon him, David fought. And it has encouraged me to fight. And I hope his story encourages others.

Sorry, Katari: That’s Life, 2011

Read more with the interactive Flash piece
For my final project at Bennington College, I created an interactive Flash-based non-linear comic. The comic follows 5 time lines: Today, Last Week, Last Month, Last Year and Always. Each time line implies a typical day, week, month, a not so typical year and what just seems like always.
Within these stories, there are two threads “Crushes” and “Moving On.” Go to the end for descriptions of the symbolism and more about the project.
This was also made into a series of 5 accordion-style books, which when put together form a map of the Flash-based version.
