I was happy to learn that Cooties #11 was nominated in the Comics category for the 2018 Association of Mormon Letters award! Feels nice to be noticed.

While unrelated to anything noticeably Mormon, the theme of the issue, sibling relationships, was heavily influenced by both my Mo upbringing and my experience as a parent.

Just having my name mentioned in the same category as such great people as Jake Parker, Brandon Dayton, Noah Van Sciver and Brittany Olsen is such a huge honor for me. It blows my mind that putting the challenge to myself to produce an entire comic issue in 30 days has resulted in this kind of reception. I’m more stoked than ever to keep producing stories for this series!
