You know what I haven’t shared here? My freelance work! Some of it is pretty cool. So here’s some of the stuff I have done for First Second. It is all lettering work, but I really enjoy it. I don’t earn royalties or anything, but there are some pretty great books in this list (in no particular order except bunching series together).
So Much for Love by Sophie Lambda (I think I am actually credited for lettering this one – it is a translation from French and was so fun to do.)
Big Apple Diaries by Alyssa Bermudez (Roaring Book Press)
The Greatest Thing by Sarah Winifred Searle
Bubble written by Jordan Morris and Sarah Morgan; art by Tony Cliff; colors by Natalie Riess
Jukebox by Nidhi Chanani
Island Book by Evan Dahm.
The Nameless City: The Divided Earth by Faith Erin Hicks (this was a thrill because my name is in the back and I adore her work)
Head Games written by Craig McDonald and art by Les McLaine (who is the artist of my book with First Second, Maker Comics: Live Sustainably!) Also this the first book I ever worked on for them.
