I began creating my first webcomic, West of Bathurst,
in July of 2006. It is a
strange little comic about a young woman, Marie Dumont, who goes to
Toronto to attend grad school and moves into Davies College, a graduate
residence based on the real-life Massey College. It's a
slice-of-life sort of comic with a twist; as it progresses, it becomes
clearer and clearer that not everything that is happening is entirely
explicable. There may, in fact, be some rather strange things
going on, and it is possible that one of the characters is actually
West of Bathurst was nominated for a 2013 Aurora Award
in the category of "Graphic Novel." It completed its run in
February of 2014, and a print collection was released in the summer of
2015. There are still a few copies available; you can purchase them on Bandcamp. The print collection was nominated for an Aurora Award in 2016.
My second webcomic, It Never Rains, began on March 3rd, 2014. It takes place in a universe continuous with that of West of Bathurst,
but it involves (for the most part) different characters and leans more
towards science fiction than it does towards magic realism. The
comic follows teenager Rose Malory, who has no filter, prefers never to
tell the truth about anything, and has discovered that she is
eventually going to become a time traveller.
It Never Rains has won Aurora Awards in the category of "Graphic Novel" and "Graphic Novel/Comic" in 2015, 2019, 2021, and 2022.
