My Approach

I use my comics to address complex themes relating to intersecting systems of oppression. My comics talk about homophobia, racism, sexism, and poverty. But they also put a focus on diversity. As a kid, I always loved seeing powerful female leads in comics, and seeing so many characters from diverse backgrounds. I feel like diversity is ultimately something to be celebrated in comic books, and I want that to be reflected in my work.

 

My Story

I launched Cross X Comix as a small Facebook page when I was a freshman in college. Growing up, I wrote a lot of comics over the years, but I always put them away in a box, never to be seen again. I wanted people to read my comics so that I could hopefully develop my skills as both a writer and artist.

Founder, Writer, and Artist 

I’m originally from the Midwest but I attended school out in Oregon to gain a bigger perspective of the world and have some adventures. I’ve been writing and drawing comics since I was younger. Although I have no professional art experience, I keep the site going because this is something that I love to do. I also think that the subjects I try to address in my work are important.
