Who is Alex?
I live in the San Francisco Bay area where I teach and make art. I earned a BA in art with a focus in printmaking and a BA in Gender Studies from the University of North Carolina at Asheville in 2011, and in 2019 I earned an MFA in Comics from California College of the Arts. Right now I’m working on my first full-length graphic novel about transgender history.
I first started exhibiting my self-published comics and art at conventions in 2009. My first comics were fanzines and I love to connect with fan communities since a lot of my art is related to being a geeky queer human. I enjoy working with a variety of mediums and my visual influences include anime, fine art, lettering, illustration, portraiture, tattoo, and sign painting.
