I am an illustrator and cartoonist. I grew up in Calgary, Alberta and graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design.

I have been illustrating professionally since 2003. I do lots of different stuff, from magazine and newspaper illustration, book covers, and writing for the TV show Adventure Time. I am also a cartoonist and make everything from small minicomics to graphic novels.

My cousin, writer Mariko Tamaki, and I are the co-creators of the graphic novel SKIM and This One Summer . SuperMutant Magic Academy, which will collect my webcomic of the same name, will be published in 2015.
