Hey! I'm Morgan
...design lovin', girl-power championing comic creator + teacher.
with COMICS, ANYTHING'S POSSIBLE.
(SERIOUSLY! ...YOU CAN DRAW ENTIRE UNIVERSES TO LIFE!)
Trust me, I know.
I used to be stuck in multi-hyphenate-land, stressing over what I wanted to focus on and feeling limited by each. ...Art one day, writing the next, filmmaking in the horizon, and fashion on the mind. I was a creative hot mess...
Until *bing! lightbulb moment* I discovered comics.
Whether it was a single illustration or an entire book, I could be writer, director, costumer and artist. There were no limits to the stories I could tell. It became "my creative all-in-one." A freedom unlike no other.
It wasn't easy adapting to parts of this new art form...drawing panels made me want to pull my hair out, word balloons stumped me. The how-to books just confused me more.
I quickly became the embodiment of an infomercial lady shrieking: "there's got to be a better way!" So I found one. And it made all the difference.
That's when my comic love affair deepened... And the rest, as they say, is history.
(Wanna see how I've done it myself? Check out my free comic.)
I'M TEACHING YOU HOW TO MAKE COMICS!
HERE'S A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS (OR: ME IN A NUTSHELL):
Indie comics 🤓, Frasier, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, British TV, Paris Texas, The Criterion Collection, Anthropologie, high-waisted jeans + cozy tees, The Coveteur, Chelsea Handler, Nancy Drew, A Course in Miracles + Hay House books, Gabby Bernstein mediations, truffle fries, French macaroons, clean beauty, neon signs, gentle sarcasm, drawing on my tablet, shouting "oy with the poodles already!", and shameless people watching.
As seen / featured on:
I have a Hulk-sized passion for equality in comics. Especially looking out for how women are represented. Comics in the mainstream have made great progress but the world needs more of that momentum.
In a real way.
Making sure that women are projected as more than just the "fantasy". a.k.a. more than hot pants and boobs. Proving them just as strong as anyone else.
You'll see that my work takes more of a everyday, indie spirit than superhero but superhero comics are some of my most favorites to read (hi, Ms. Marvel and Hawkeye!) Superheroes are what represent comics in the media. But I'm also passionate about people knowing titles like Ghost World as much as they know The Avengers.
Comics can be anything and for everyone.
Not just 12-year-old boys.
Not just Superman, Spider-man or Arm-Fall-Off Boy (yep, he's a real thing.)
I want to see a mainstream where a legit superpower is being accepted as human. However we are. Where guys can cry, and not be thought any less than for it. Where the disabled are portrayed as amazingly capable as they truly are. And men can love men, women can love women, or not be attracted to anyone at all. Where there's a world of religion, cultures, and races represented. And having the same diversity behind the scenes too.
Comics aren't a boys club...or a girls club either. And they're not a certain people club. Comics are an equal people club (anyone can create comics + kick ass at it!)
