ABOUT ME

I started drawing comics strips when I was a third year medical student as a way of coping with the stress of clinical rotations.  I graduated from medical school in 2011 from the Medical college of Wisconsin.  I then stayed on to complete my internal medicine residency.  Now I am in practice and I continue to draw comic strips.  Medicine is a stressful field and I find that if I don’t laugh I get burned out.  I dedicate this website to everyone who told me I need to post my work online.

 

Some people are natural artists.  I am not of them.  Any artistic talent I have acquired has been through practice.  I learned how to draw comics from a “how to” kind of book.  Even now I look back on my early work and I am not very impressed by it.  I draw my comics on regular 8.5×11 paper with Ticonderoga #2 pencils and then outline them with a black sharpie pen.  i then scan them and colorize them with photoshop.
