Welcome! There is a lot of content here, so pace yourself. Eventually I'm going to give this site a complete overhaul, but in the meantime enjoy all of my art, stories, and photos.
Visual storytelling is my passion and nearly everything I create becomes some type of illustrated story or project. I've published three books to-date: a graphic novel horror anthology titled Gruesome Tales to Tickle Your Terror Bone, an illustrated memoir about my 6-month hike on the Appalachian Trail titled MEGA '99: Adventures of an Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker, and most recently a coloring book titled Color the Tahoe Rim Trail(based on my 2014 thru-hike of the Tahoe Rim Trail). My Tahoe Rim Trail coloring book is currently being printed, but I expect to have copies for sale before Thanksgiving 2016.
Contact me with questions, comments, or inquiries (especially if you see something you'd like to buy!). -- Jared
