My Dad bought me my first comic from a CVS pharmacy on the outside of town. In the hands of a highly impressionable kid, those 28 pages of newsprint instantly transformed into a universe of possibilities. My world was dramatically changed and countless discoveries followed—but none were as impactful as Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes. From that moment on, my course was set. I wanted to be a cartoonist.

As a kid, I had at my disposal a workshop littered with every imaginable tool anyone could want. I spent hours inventing obedient robots, fashioning armor and careening down hills in my latest go-kart. While I may not be in a basement tinkering away anymore, I find myself still wandering in that world; experimenting with new ideas and concepts looking to take on the next great saga.
