What made you decide to work in the medium of comics?
I’ve drawn comics since I was a kid. I grew up reading them and I’ve never wanted to do anything else.
What part of the process is the most challenging or frustrating to you?
Deciding what ideas to pursue over others. There are so many options and choosing the best one is always a challenge.
If you could give one piece of advice to an aspiring comics creator, what would that be?
Your job is telling a story. Clarity is key. Don’t think it has to be perfect. But if a choice has to be made of being clear or clever–clear is the way to go. Your goal is to have readers understand what’s going on.
