From an early age I doodled comics while I was supposed to be doing something else, but I did not become serious about it until my life imploded in my mid-fifties and suddenly I had free time in abundance.
In 2006 I began writing and drawing a series of web comics. The art was pretty bad (see right), but I learned fast. I began drawing Out of phase tomboy: Multiple Muse Disorder in 2008 and eventually reached the point where I could more or less draw on paper what I had in my head (sketch of Risa and Resu below).
"Many people have suspected there is a hidden transgender agenda. You are correct. We hope to immerse everyone in high potency metaphysical concept solvent to strip away the social facade that keeps our souls in shadow and prevents us from interacting on the level of pure energy.

Transgender? What's that? Part Two of my book Fragments of Gender, circa 2005.
