Graphic Novels 

I write and illustrate graphic novels.

I usually create my art in the program Clip Studio Paint where I draw with a pressure-sensitive Wacom Cintiq. I like to draw digitally because it allows me to work quickly and erase and edit easily.

I’m drawing my current graphic novel to resemble pencil sketches and I’m coloring it by hand with watercolor paint.

My literary agent is Bernadette Baker-Baughman of Victoria Sanders Agency

Time Lapse Videos of My Process

Time lapse drawing of me working on the opening page spread of my novel. I'm inking in Clip Studio Paint, and working over pencil drawings (in blue).

Jormungand is a serpent in Norse mythology (the child of Loki and a frost giant) and here Udina must fight him with a serpent of her own. 

Two chapters of my graphic novel take place on a Viking longship The Defiance, where Udina must convince the dashing Captain Strand to trust her. 

A time lapse as I ink Udina into a panel of Chapter 1. She's saying goodbye to her father before heading off to a day of defense training.
