I'm Patt.
I live in Boston.
I'm an illustrator and dogwalker whose days consist of picking up dog poop and then drawing funny comics about it.
I graduated from Mass College of Art in 2002 with a BFA in illustration, and have been working as an illustrator and comic artist ever since.
My work has appeared in various publications,art galleries, and one museum. My first graphic novel "What Am I Going to Do Without You?" was released as a digital exclusive through Top Shelf Productions in July. This January it received an honorable mention in the Publishers Weekly 2012 Graphic Novel Critics Poll.
You can also see my weekly strip "What's for Breakfast" in the pages of DigBoston.
I draw. I paint. I make comics. It's what I do.
It's what I've always done.
