Artist, web designer, and builder of this popular daily web comic.
Brainless Tales was my personal comic I created and published daily for 9 years. All the design and coding was done by me.
All 3,289 comics were drawn with pen on paper, scanned, and edited in Photoshop.

All the front end was hand coded — most recently to be responsive and HiDPI.
The site does not use a CMS. The database was set up, and the PHP was hand coded for the job of managing the comics.
