The Tooth

The Tooth from Anomaly on Vimeo.

The comics section of ANMLY25 features a lot of fantastic cartoonists including Aidan Koch, Austin English and Alyssa Berg. My contribution was an animated version of The Tooth. My 24 page comic The Tooth appeared in The Shirley Jackson Project edited by Rob Kirby and published by Ninth Art Press in September 2016.
