Last Year Comic Chronicle

cover-2Throughout my senior year of college, in an effort to document this period of my life, get better at comicking, and create something similar to the works of all the autobio cartoonists who had inspired me, I created the Last Year Comic Chronicle. The comic updated roughly once a week from August 2018 to May 2019, spanning the length of my senior year at the University of Iowa, offering glimpses into all aspects of my life—writing, working, acting, dealing with feelings, and ultimately leaving the life I’d grown accustomed to for the past four years.

You can read all of it online here—or, if you want a more convenient, downloadable version, you can buy it on Gumroad or This PDF version also contains the previously unpublished “Last Summer,” a shorter series of comics made over the summer following my graduation, as well as some older proof-of-concept autobio comics and a quick step-by-step description of my process for creating L.Y.C.C.
