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 completed his MFA, 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. Established as an overly sensitive chronicler of bittersweet adolescent romance and nonsense superhero parody, Brown's current direction remains autobiographical, now examining the minutae of everyday life, the meaning behind our common experiences, and why it's all kind of funny if you think about it.
His works include Clumsy, Unlikely, AEIOU, Be A Man, Bighead, I Am Going To Be Small, and Minisulk. He's also appeared in a host of antholgies from McSweeney's to the Drawn & Quarterly Showcase, as well as local newspapers like the Chicago Reader and NewCity. Brown has been featured on NPR's 'This American Life' and created a short animated music video for the band Death Cab For Cutie. Future work includes a continuing mix of autobiography, gags, satire and parodies, inlcuding The Incredible Change-Bots. You can write to him at: PO Box 120, Deerfield IL 60015-0120, USA.
