Hi! My name's Chris. I've lived in Los Angeles since 1995, when I came out here for grad school. I 'm originally from the north side of Columbus, OH.

I'm a creative writer and artist and have shown my work in galleries in Los Angeles. Check out my art here.

I've also written a graphic novel! You can check out some sample pages here.

I like graphic novels, Christmas, tide pools, grilled cheese sandwiches, reading, biker moustaches, dudes, football (Ohio State and the New Orleans Saints), sea monsters, painting, pine trees, bookstores, tennis, going to the gym, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cricket Magazine, gloves with the fingers torn off, illustration, rugby players, Trina Schart Hyman, Stephen King, horror films, Hillary Clinton, film history and unexplained phenomena.

I blog about illustration, painting, Atari, films, Christmas, books...and things from my favorite era: the late 1970s/early 80s. As well as assorted other stuff!

CURRENTLY READING: Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures by Kate DiCamillo

 

I just finished this outstanding memoir of the author’s 7th grade year, circa 1985 in Little Rock, AR. It’s written in third person, which gives the story an interesting element of detachment. This review brilliantly sums up the book’s strengths. Check it out!

Just finished this outstanding Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. It’s about a poor kid in turn of the century NYC who works his way up from working in his dad’s cigar shop to becoming, hmmm, kind of Donald Trump meets Frank Lloyd Wright! It is smoothly written and fast-paced, and includes tons of amazing detail about life in the late 1800s, when people were embracing the new but were too afraid to fully let go of the old. Check it out!
