I first discovered manga when I was about 21 years old. I was hanging around in a Borders bookstore when I found a copy of X/1999 by the all-female group CLAMP. From that moment, I was overwhelmed with the storytelling power and potential of manga and graphic novels. Since then, I've dedicated my life towards drawing manga. My personal goal is to share this wonderful medium with everyone and expand the boundaries of all it could do through the creation of lyrical, breathtaking images. I live in Savannah, Georgia and work at a tech startup in Bluffton, South Carolina.
Did you really do all this?
That's right, I did everything except for coloring the cover (that is, writing, drawing, painting and publishing). I can't color to save my life.
How long did this take you?
Each page takes from 6 to 8 hours. Volume 1 took about 3 years start to finish... Volume 2 took a little less than 3 years.
