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: Dirty Work by Larry Brown

 

I slacked off and fell behind, but that’ll be fixed soon! Stoked that they got a new inker for Volume 20 - the images look SO much clearer.

Hi friends! I wrote a graphic novel, and it was illustrated by the awesome Christopher Darling! It tracks three turbulent months in the life of a troubled high school sophomore in 1987. Click the photo to take a look at some sample pages!

I wanted to recommend this highly excellent, really sweet graphic novel. Johnny Hiro is an ordinary guy with an eternally optimistic girlfriend who manages to have adventures befitting a superhero. They live in NYC, struggling to get by, and he works as a busboy at a sushi restaurant. Coolio, David Byrne and the cast of Night Court make guest appearances. Check it out!!

Nick Pope: A Graphic Diary
I have collaborated with the artist Christopher Darling on an illustrated diary project. I’ve written the text of the diary, from the perspective of a fictional teenager who’s in high school in 1987. Christopher has illustrated and designed the diary for his thesis project at the School of Visual Arts.
Check out his work at: www.christopherdarling.com.
We currently have plans to publish a limited first edition run ourselves, and on to a bigger and better publisher after that. Here are some sample pages.
