FRIENDS OF THE ABSTRACT GARAGE
Below, you'll find descriptions and links for some of my friends and collaborators.
I'm a member of this Washington, D.C., area comics collective. You can learn about meetings and events at our Facebook page or Tumblr, as well as projects and appearances by individual members. You can also buy comics from many of the members at the DC Conspiracy Distro.
Cartoonist of books like Xox!, editor of Trickster, District Comics, and Wild Ocean, founding member of the DC Conspiracy--Matt kind of does it all, including teaching comics to kids in D.C. public schools. Find out more about his work at his blog.
Rafer makes the comics Plastic Farm, the story of "a man named Chester and his slow descent into complete insanity" and Nightmare the Rat, the story of a rat named Nightmare who steals teeth from sleeping victims. His work has also appeared in a number of comics from Valiant.
Joey writes the web comic Reckstar with artist Michelle Nguyen. He also writes other comics, prose, and reviews and offers his writing and editorial services at his blog.
I've written more extensively about this project elsewhere on the site--surf instrumentals of Nirvana songs! You can keep up with Surfana news and musings on Facebook and listen to tracks and order CDs at Jango.
At Howzit Funnies, you can read many of Andrew's darkly funny comics, including his collaboration with Art Haupt Porter Black (a personal favorite).
