Current Projects > Freaks' Progress

My ongoing graphic novel Freaks’ Progress was initially inspired by a youthful grasp of The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan, and The Rake’s Progress by William Hogarth. I saw both of these works as broad morality tales leading to a narrow and conventional understanding of “salvation,” or how to create a better world. I meant Freaks’ Progress to complicate that understanding. It is a meandering, character-focused tale that will probably take me the rest of my life to write.

The site includes music by local artists, and an extensive gallery of related art, including sketches, animation, and murals. You can also see several of my other comics titles. Freaks' Progress is serialized monthly in print by Activator Magazine out of Springfield, Illinois.
