Moth & Ethan are finally back and celebrating 10 years since their conception!

I created the characters while still in college but did not begin producing strips until after I graduated and had a lot of time on my hands. Initially I published them on my original website in black and white, and I had a pretty good momentum going for a while. But after a few years, and many positive distractions (like getting married and having kids), the project fell by the wayside and poor M&E became neglected, but not before garnering critical praise and a faithful following.

Occasionally I would write a new strip, draw some promotional art, and even compiled a small sampler for distributing to fans, but in the back of my mind I knew the property was not reaching it’s full potential, nor was it taking the form I had ultimately intended.

Enter the advent of the digital age and the growing popularity of online comics. This new era is inspiring to me and breaks through the barriers of publication and syndication. This was the push I needed to be disciplined about moving forward with my old friends.

So for the time being, every Saturday and Sunday a different Moth & Ethan strip will be appearing on this blog, thanks to the miracle of WordPress/ComicPress. Some of the strips will be brand new, and some will be old favorites that have either been re-drawn, or at least colored. They will stand alone as well as follow an exhaustive chronological story line. The site itself will hopefully improve too as I become more familiar with it.

In the meantime, feel free to post comments or contact me via e-mail. I look forward to continuing on this journey and reading your feedback.
