I'm Alan, a comic artist interested in psychology and speculative culture whose work focuses on queer narratives in psychedelic sci-fi and horror settings. I have a degree in psychology from the University of California Santa Cruz and have recently called the Wild West home. When not drawing comics, I can be found playing Irish fiddle, bike touring, rockhounding, and blasting doom metal to my cats.

@guest: (haha I usually read comments from my phone but I can't reply there!)

That's cool to hear. I know part of why I've been able to finish this project instead of abandoning it like all my others is that it's allowing me to work through my own unresolved Teen Feelins.

As a side tone, I've enjoyed guessing readers' ages based on their comments here and on Tapas -- who gets angry at (or is empathetic towards) which character and why sort of stuff. It's interesting for me as the author to imagine what it's like reading this *as* a teen, because it's written so much from the distance of *looking back on* my teens haha.
@guest: I'm so sad this page missed April Fool's Day because that would be an excellent joke page hahaa
