About

Jep lives in Toronto and makes comics when he is not being a teacher. He was inspired to get busy making actual comics after seeing American Splendor.

His mini, The True Adventures of JepComix, was started in 2004, and is currently at issue 8. Each issue has an homage to an album jep digs, and he will be impressed if someone can name them all. 

He's taken courses to try and get better - with Ty Templeton, and Fiona Smyth, and at that Comics College in Vermont. Since 2010, when he heard Chester Brown say at TCAF that one had to do 100 pages to get any good, he has done several times that, and he's still waiting. 

Jep has also written and illustrated a series of educational books about learning disabilities (now out of print), and a comic for little kids called Beep Beep!

Lately, he's been writing autobiographical comics on themes - religion, politics, fighting, kayaking. Fights Wkly appears weekly on various social whatevers (insta, fb, twitter, whatever). And HERE on this actual website, in the Blog.

You can read them online or buy some or all of them in a store such as

Quimby's in Chicago,

Chicago Comics, also in Chicago,

Atomic Books in Baltimore,

The Beguiling in Toronto,

Page and Panel, also in Toronto.

Gosh bless all of them for carrying very independent comics.
