From Christopher:
“I struggled on “how” to tell this story. . .

Amidst the normal chaos of other projects and daily living, this tragic and triumphant story has permeated my life for the better part of a year—weighing on me to try and get it right.

Not only was the subject matter difficult to tackle, but there were so many facets to the account that required deeper faith and humility—sincere emotional commitment. More than I possessed.”

Check out our latest short flick starring the incredible Aaron “Wheelz”. Buckle up. As Wheelz always says “Safety third!” #wheelz #aaronwheelz

Ian Maxfield

“Getting ready for FanX and the first of the new prints of the year is Captain Marvel.”

“This was one of my favorite movies of 2018. The art and animation style had me drooling. I had a lot of fun making this.”


Matt & Priya Page

It (Grid Zine Fest) was fun. Thanks to my friends who came by and especially those who supported Priya’s comic. She’s super excited that people bought her book.

“Thanks to my friend Naima Nawabi for another great photo of Priya and I. Just three more hours to go at the zine fest.”


Matthew Radcliffe

“It was all just a brick in the wall.”


Erin Salazar
