St. Marys Indy Website

In January 2016 the St. Marys Independent decided to revamp their website and by the end of February the website was fully functional and went live. My role in this project was development and design, content transfer from newspaper files to web and image optimization. I also created ads for the front page and maintained the website each week.

Shower Thoughts 3

Between June 5th and July 24th 2015 I created a short series of comics for the newspaper I worked at. I was tasked with creating a comic that could be completed quickly each week. The comic did not run long enough to develop much of a story.

This is the third comic which introduced a character named Ted who did not appear again after this.
