Kelsey Westphal

Kelsey Westphal makes comics with and for people with wild and weird stories to tell. UC Berkeley alum and possessor of a masters in text and image research from the Ecole Européenne Supérieure de l'Image, she draws lots of sneaky dogs and has a hard time keeping a straight face. Her most recent projects include the serial comic biography of San Francisco's local punk historian V Vale, making editorial comics for the floating nerd convention "JoCoCruise Crazy" daily newsletter, and a cartoon adaptation of the seminal SF housing crisis article, "How Burrowing Owls lead to Vomiting Anarchists" by Kim-Mai Cutler. Her dream is to trail a crew of explorer folk and make the Moby Dick of comics journalism.
