About Emily Cox

I've been reading comics for as long as I can remember, starting with Garfield and Bizarro in the newspaper. I picked up manga in middle school, and as I learned French, grabbed French-language titles whenever I could. I have been making my own comics since 2014.

I graudated from Middlebury College in 2017, with a BA in French, and from the University of San Diego with a Master's in Social Innovation from the University of San Diego in 2018.

Besides drawing comics, I also tutor English language learners in a variety of subjects, and teach elementary school students to code.

Timeline of Work

 2018

In the beginning half of the year, I wrote and drew two more Incantation Comics: Letters to Toast and To Become a Witch.

I graduated from graduate school. Part of my capstone, Assessing the Damage of Marine Plastic Pollution: Current Seascapes and Ways Forward to Cleaner Oceans, were the Trash Comics.

After finishing To Become a Witch, I focused on a new, longer comic: Cocoon. Creating the world and characters would take me the whole summer as I looked for work.

 2017

In May, I graduated from college, and the College Cats series ended. I would begin graduate school in September.

I finished drawing Chapter 34 of Phantasma in July. Having completed it, I knew I needed a chance to work on shorter work.

The series of Incantation Comics began with Pepper the Potion Witch in July. I would then go on to draw Diora in the fall.

 2016

After wrapping up their year abroad, the College Cats prepared for their senior year with me.

I also continued drawing Phantasma, relying on my notes and reference photos.

 2015

In August, I finished drawing the last pages of Triple A.

In September, I began preparing to draw Phantasma, going through initial drafts and character ideas. The College Cats went abroad with me to France, entering their second year of printing.

 2014

In August, I started preparatory writing and drawing for Triple A. I would start drawing it in earnest in mid-September.

In Ocotober, I drew the first two strips of College for Cats.
