|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

West of Bathurst was nominated for a 2013 Prix 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 won a 2015 Prix Aurora Award in the category of "Graphic Novel." It was nominated again in 2017.
