Very honored to paint all of Isabel Allende’s beautiful books, in both the English and Spanish editions! I first read The House of the Spirits in high school and was completely blown away by it. Personally, I think the Spanish versions are the lovelier of the two; they have such distinctive spines.

Mya Gosling and her succinct Shakespeare comics “In 3 Panels”. Achingly simple, these short comic strips provide a concise beginning-middle-end guide to many of Shakespeare’s classic and obscure works.

Understanding Poetry

Happy National Poetry Month! This comic was inspired by one of my favorite poems, "The New Poetry Handbook" by Mark Strand. This month on Incidental Comics, I’ll be exploring the world of poetry. A place, as Marianne Moore famously said, of  ”imaginary gardens with real toads in them.”
