I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I work for what’s been voted several times as the best comic shop in the world, Strange Adventures, and I am a maker of comics! This picture makes me look surlier than I really am. It is also several years old and I no longer dye my hair black. What a world!
I have self-published three mini-comics which then came together into the glossy wonder known as Ultimate Kate or Die, which is of course only now a small sampler. Sometimes things become available in my Etsy shop! I was an artist for Womanthology and contributed to Locke and Key, as well as other projects hither and thither such as the Adventure Time spinoff series Marceline and the Scream Queens and Fionna & Cake. I contributed to The Legend of Luther Strode. I collaborate with the podcast Welcome to Night Vale. I run a group online for girls who work in comic shops. I start a lot of things I can’t finish. I drink too much spiced rum.
I am self-taught in comics and have been making them since late 2010. I use Micron and Faber-Castell pens as well as a Pentel brush pen. I’d use Copic if I could afford them. I’m a fan of Canson Bristol paper and cheap, cheap watercolours. I colour digitally with a Monoprice 9×12 tablet, and I recommend it to everyone. I like to make lip-synch videos and edit things together to music. I dropped out of art school and look at me now, mom!
