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

Smiling Ribs is my comic about whatever's in my head and in my head's general vicinity. It's grim and happy, sometimes it's poetry, sometimes it's cats. Whatever it is, I love making it, so thanks very much for reading.

Some old 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, I spent most of my time writing, but only actually released Newfangled Death, a small collection of stories.

And now it's comic time again!
