ADRI was my thesis project and is an ongoing series, the first two chapters having been completed July 2019. This comic tells the story of an artificial intelligence program which is accidentally placed inside a human body, starting a chain of events which might lead to either the end to humanity, or its salvation.
These chapters are not yet online, but you can see my thesis talk which contains a big preview of the pages here

This is a wordless graphic interpretation of a story by Dr. Oliver Sacks, from his book “The Man who mistook his Wife for a Hat”. It tells the story of a woman who loses her sense of proprioception, the mechanism through which the body can tell where it’s limbs are.
This story is an interpretation of a small excerpt from Wind, Sand and Stars, an autobiographical novel by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. It tells the story of an incident where he and a copilot crashed in the desert, during the time he was working as an air mail carrier in Africa, in 1935. My version is a black and white, charcoal wordless comic. I was very impressed “The Interview” a graphic novel done in charcoal by Manuele Fior, and wanted to try my hand at it as well.
3 was my submission piece to apply to my graduate program, MFA Visual Narrative at SVA. It was based on the prompt “3 is the magic number”. It tells the story of a girl with 3 eyes who finally thinks she’s found acceptance with a band of psychonauts, but after a bad trip ends up more isolated than ever. You can read the whole comic here

Mechanik is the first 3 pages second chapter of a yet unnamed linocut book, directly following “The Climb”. This chapter will depict a typical day of my life in summer of 2016, when I was working as a mechanic at Citibike.
The Climb is an autobiographical narrative, reflecting the disorienting mixture of memories of traveling, depression, and dead end work that directly followed my undergraduate graduation.
