Welcome To My Comics Website

My newest project is a graphic novel adaptation of Taylor Field’s A Church Called Graffiti. This is my very first graphic novel!

At 270 pages long, we’re previewing the entire GN here over the next few months, to give folks a chance to find and read it. The book is Taylor’s memoir of when he first joined the Graffiti mission and church on Manhattan’s Lower East Side in New York City. Located near Tompkins Square Park, they help the poor and homeless living in Alphabet City (a neighborhood so named after its Avenues: A, B, C and D.)

There’s a “back cover text” page, and an “About Graffiti” page if you want to read more details.

Thanks so much for your visit!
