Jeffrey Brown moved to Chicago in 2000, after growing up in Michigan, 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.
He splashed onto the comics scene with the self-published relationship memoir CLUMSY, which earned praise from cartoonists and readers alike, and was eventually picked up by Top Shelf. Many acclaimed graphic novels followed, establishing Brown as both a hyper-sensitive chronicler of bittersweet romance (UNLIKELY, ANY EASY INTIMACY) and a deadpan master of absurdist humor (INCREDIBLE CHANGE-BOTS, SULK, I AM GOING TO BE SMALL).
Additional projects include: the autobiographical collections LITTLE THINGS, FUNNY MISSHAPEN BODY, and UNDELETED SCENES; and the observational books CAT GETTING OUT OF A BAG and CATS ARE WEIRD.
*Jeffrey will be signing at the Travelling Man tables in New Dock Hall on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th November
