Who is Alex?
Hi, I’m Alex and I was born in Asheville, North Carolina in 1982. My first self-published comics were fanzines based on anime and video games, and I’ve been exhibiting at anime and comic conventions since 2009. I love to connect with these fan communities and a lot of my art is related to being queer and being a geek. In the early aughts I started drawing the webcomic Tittybar Tales, a humorous and educational comic about working as a stripper, and self-published a print edition in 2015. I earned a BA in art with a focus in printmaking from the University of North Carolina Asheville in 2011 and am currently earning an MFA with a specialty in comics at California College of the Arts. I enjoy doing a variety of commission work– my visual influences include anime, fine art, illustration, portraiture, tattoo art, and sign painting. Recently I update my Instagram on the most regular basis. Please say hello! ~Alex
