Unspent Love, Or, Things I Wish I Told You
Originally drawn and written as a series of online poetic vignettes, UNSPENT LOVE addresses themes such as hope, fear, and human frailty. Evolving through numerous iterations, including a gallery installation supported by the Nick Novak Fellowship at Open Studio, UNSPENT LOVE most recently appeared as an experimental wall installation at YYZ Artist's Outlet. One chapter of this work won first place in the graphic narrative category of This Magazine’s Great Canadian Literary Hunt in 2010.
In 2011, Conundrum Press published the book version of the project, complete with a letterpressed wraparound jacket printed at Gaspereau Press. Embracing a variety of genres, from poetry to relational art to graphic novel, UNSPENT LOVE is as varied as the characters who populate its quintessentially human stories.
Sword of my Mouth
In 2010, I had the immense pleasure of illustrating a sci-fi graphic novel for writer Jim Munroe. SWORD of MY MOUTH, a follow up to Jim’s first graphic novel Therefore, Repent!, follows a group of anarchist urban farmers in post-rapture Detroit as they fight the incarnation of apocalyptic horseman, Famine.
