About



Hey! I'm Derek. I live in Canada with a girl and two girl cats.

Smiling Ribs is my comic about ribs and smiles. I love making it, so thanks very much for reading my about page.

You can also find me streaming games 'n stuff on Twitch as speakyclean. I beat some Zeldo with my voice.

Some much older work I've done: INKBLORT, which was a bunch of comics and poems. And The Can of Nothing, where I did animation and film. Both were fun and I learned a lot from them.

After those things, I spent most of my time writing, but only actually released Newfangled Death, a small collection of stories. Maybe more books someday, bookfans.
