Jemiah Jefferson was born in Denver, Colorado. Her childhood consisted of a steady diet of AM radio, New Wave and disco, music videos, Star Wars, and resenting the strictures of school.

“It’s not possible to catch up on sleep.”

“Isn't it great when you're a kid and the world is full of anonymous things? Everything is bright and mysterious until you know what it is called and then all the light goes out of it...Once we knew the name of it, how could we ever come to love it?...For things had true natures, and they hid behind false names, beneath the skin we gave them.”

Jemiah Jefferson I just don't feel quite like reading books right now...


Jemiah Jefferson I wonder if there's a way to link fan fiction on here? I've written so much of it, and it's of high quality. *sigh*

Hermann is the 2016 winner of the Angouleme Grand Prix, recently controversial for the boycott of several nominated cartoonists in protest of the all-male slate of nominees.

I'm pleased about this, having now edited several English-language translations of some of his work, and having become a fan in the process. Excellent bandes-dessinees, and classics of the "Comics are not always for children" category.
