My Occupation Cartoonist
My Bio Pollux (né Paul Morris) was born in 1979 in the English town of Beverley, in what was the former East Riding of Yorkshire. He and his family moved to the United States a year later, and Pollux attended UCLA, studying medieval history and Latin and attended Brown University for grad school, studying medieval history. As a child, Pollux constantly drew and created his own comics, and while at grad school, he began drawing “Nigel and Beatrice” for The Brown Daily Herald. He has been creating comics ever since, creating the web comic Arnjuice (www.arnjuice.com) and he drew the daily comic “The Wavy Rule” for Emdashes.com. All of his graphic novels and novelettes are set in the fictional college town of San Tesifonte, California, which lies somewhere between Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. It is the location for UCST and is home to various museums, parks, beaches, Redwoods Restaurant (home to the famous Sequoia Steak Sandwich) and its pier.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Benthochromis melanoides, a species of fish in the Cichlidae family. That, or a book about V1472 Aquilae, a semi-regular pulsating star.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Cartoonists: the Norwegian cartoonist Jason, the Argentine cartoonist Liniers, and the American Craig Thompson (author of "Blankets"). David Mazzucchelli's Asterios Polyp I enjoyed a lot. I also enjoy reading the work of Adrian Tomine.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
The Satires of Juvenal.
