Local Business Comics
As the world shut down in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, many of my past employers found themselves struggling to stay afloat. In response I began drawing comics about these mom-and-pop shops which not only offered me gainful employment, but are also important pillars of their communities. Check them out below!
Vroman’s Bookstore is the oldest independent bookseller in Southern California, where I had the pleasure of working from 2012- 2017. The comic was shared across their social media platforms, as well as by Grammy award winning writer Lynell George, and Instagram fashion director/children’s book author Eva Chen.
This comic is about The Berkeley Hat Company, where I worked from 2004 – 2006. It was also featured in the pages of the East Bay Express, as well as being shared by the official Telegraph Business Association on their social media pages.
