I am a cartoonist and illustrator. I grew up in Calgary, Alberta and currently live in Toronto, Ontario.
My cousin Mariko Tamaki and I are the co-creators of the graphic novels SKIM and This One Summer, which won a Governor General’s Award and Caldecott Honor. I’m the author of SuperMutant Magic Academy, a book which collects my webcomic of the same name, and Boundless, a collection of short comic stories.
I’ve been a professional illustrator since 2003, when I graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design. I do lots of different stuff: magazine and newspaper illustration, book covers, posters, even a few storyboards for the TV show Adventure Time.
I’ve also taught illustration at the School of Visual Arts and Parsons in New York.
