After a lot of consideration I've decided to put my graphic novel about forests and middle school, Eighth Grade, online for free. I've been working on it for over three years now; it was on the strength of this comic that I got into the Atlantic Center for the Arts graphic novel intensive last year, studying under Craig Thompson. The art looks a little rough to me now (it gets better as it goes on, I promise) and it's not perfect, but it's still probably the best comic I've ever drawn. Please, give it a shot, and send it around the internet if you like it.

I've put up the entire first chapter for you to read, and for the next few months I'll put up about ten new pages every week until I run out of material. If you're interested, please sign up for email updates here.
Thanks so much everyone. I'm handing you my baby here– you don't have to love it but at least support its head.
