Jeffrey Brown News


Jeffrey Brown (born 1975) is a comic book writer and artist born in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

After growing up in Michigan, a 25 year old Jeffrey Brown moved to Chicago in 2000 to pursue an MFA at the School of the Art Institute. By the time he finished his studies, he had abandoned painting and started drawing comics seriously. His first self-published book, Clumsy, appeared seemingly out of nowhere to grab attention from both cartoonists and comics fans. He specializes in personal and intimate works detailing moments in relationships. He writes and draws his comics in sketchbooks, and his drawing is often out of proportion or incorrect in a way that mirrors that strain and awkwardness of the situations he depicts. He currently lives in Chicago with his wife Jennifer and their son.

Established as a sensitive chronicler of bittersweet adolescent romance and nonsense superhero parody, Brown's current direction remains split between more autobiography examining the minutae of everyday life and whatever humorous fiction he feels in the mood for, and a wide range of fiction subjects in his new series Sulk.
