About this author

I write and draw cool children's books.

That's pretty much all I think about for most of my waking hours. It's terribly time consuming, tedious and slightly maddening.

I'm quite proud of my books, even though I tend not to think about or look at them once they leave my desk. From that point on, they belong to you guys, I guess. Enjoy them or merely shrug and pass them along.

Meanwhile, I'll just continue to make more books because ink is cheap and I dislike sleeping.

A Month in the Country by J.L. Carr
"This has been on my to-read list since I read Tim Decker's review of it in 2009, but somehow something always cut in front of it and I never picked it up till now.

It's brilliant. It's quiet, and it's tiny, and it is so beautifully written that it'..." Read more of this review »

I bought this book sight unseen the instant it was published. I was vaguely familiar with Nachtwey’s work, at that point in my life I was suffering under the delusion that my photography skills would translate into world shattering images. A delusion ...more

"What I learned from this book..." is that Jamison Odone is taking graphic fiction to a wonderful place. It's part picture book, part graphic novel, part cartoon; which considering the state of flux in the world of literature (so long old publishing ...more
