Amazing things are possible.
Comics are my favorite way to show and share anything from IRL stories to imaginary worlds. Though honestly, learning how to create comics was one of the most stressful (ultimately rewarding) experiences. I had to hunt for and piece together a headache-free way to make them—that’s why here you’ll find everything you need, the best tips and tricks I know, to turn your comic curiosities into reality.
But it doesn’t stop there.
This isn’t just a “how to make comics” site. It goes beyond it to the foundation that makes any creation happen. It’s a dose of magical inspiration to help you live an even more creative, high-vibe life, and shaping how you experience your world in a beautiful way. It’s the energy I bring to my comics—and the same can be for whatever you create!
That’s right… It’s never limited to comics here because there are no limits to creativity. Ideas are sparked, techniques approached, and stories are told with the same heart no matter what the finished product may be.
So join me on the blog, in my videos (coming soon!), online memberships, and digital templates. Can’t wait to hang with you more!

Comics used to feel like a club I couldn’t join…
The comic book stores that I was tickled with curiosity to visit were miles away and felt intimidatingly masculine. When I got there and pushed past the fish-out-of-water feeling, the titles they stocked were superhero centric with ripped characters I couldn’t relate to. Despite that, comics still had a magic to me.
The outcasts becoming superheroes and mutants rejected by society whispered to the part of me that felt like an alien in my own world (the same part of me that bonded with Seth Cohen on The O.C. every Tuesday.)
Everything changed when I discovered Ghost World, which opened my eyes to alternative comic books that told stories I hadn’t seen before. Real people. Real situations. The same magical feeling.
It felt like a large cosmic spotlight guiding me to realize: I could make my own comics (colliding my background of art, writing, and filmmaking), tell the stories I wanted, and also make the comics I once couldn’t find. The comic book store would’ve felt very different to me if I’d been greeted by Enid and Rebecca and not Superman and The Hulk. That was my first brush with the power of reaching beyond the mainstream.
Years later, after I began my comic making journey, I evolved more: shedding a layer of the life long anxiety I’d experienced to find a more zen way of being. It shifted how I thought and expressed myself—and the creations I made followed along.
After seeing so much—too much—of society’s exchanges rooted in senseless attacks, I couldn’t write comics into existence with that same gratuitous, aggressive spirit.
…And with a similar emphasis placed on the idea of it being other’s jobs to make ourselves “complete”, telling rom-com stories—you know: the girl-gets-the-guy tropes where “the one” is all that matters—had so much less appeal.
But I don’t judge comics, or any other form, that still tell those kinds of stories. Because, with everything, it’s more important to see the heart in something or someone, even if it’s not representing 100% of where we wish it’d be…
The exciting part is we can be part of the change to break the status quo and show a more self-loving, all loving, high-vibe kind of being along the way—welcoming others to the comic club just like Ghost World did to me not so long ago.

Things I’m passionate about.
I have a Hulk-sized passion for equality in comics…
Especially looking out for how women are represented. Comics in the mainstream have made progress but the world needs more of that momentum.
Amplified. Represented. In a real way.
Making sure that women are projected as more than just the “fantasy”. a.k.a. more than hot pants and boobs. Proving them just as strong as anyone else.
Because comics can be anything and for everyone.
Not just 12-year-old boys.
Not just Superman, Spider-man or Arm-Fall-Off Boy (yep, he’s a real thing.)
My work takes more of an everyday, indie spirit than superhero… While superheroes are what represent comics in the mainstream (and are some of my favorite comics to read…hi, Ms. Marvel and Hawkeye!), I’m also passionate about people knowing titles like Ghost World as much as they know The Avengers.
I want to see a universe where a legit superpower is being accepted as human. However we are. Where guys can cry, and not be thought any less than for it. Where the disabled are portrayed as amazingly capable as they truly are. And men can love men, women can love women, or not be attracted to anyone at all. Where there’s a world of religion, cultures, and races represented. And having the same diversity behind the scenes too.
Comics aren’t a boys club…or a girls club either. And they’re not a certain people club. Comics are an equal people club, telling equal stories (anyone can create comics + kick ass at it!)
