I made this site to offer a glimpse at my creative work, writing, drawings and hybrids of the two. It includes information on my press, zines, cartoons, publications and works in progress.
Here’s a drawing I made for my forthcoming book, By the Forces of Gravity, a memoir in cartoons and words about a 1970s Berkeley childhood friendship cut short by tragedy. Books by Hippocampus releases the book June 19, 2018!
The background image for this site is from the cover of a poetry book I made when I was about twelve. It was a gift for my best friend (the pretty girl in the sketch). The first two lines from the poem “ZAP!” from that collection give you a taste of my early poetic voice: “Mellow out space out / Everything is farout” (Still not sure of the caesura in that first line. Is it too much? Not enough? What was I thinking?). I write more better now 🙂
