Old Man Gloom

Old Man Gloom (Winner of 2012 Xeric Foundation Grant) is a 16-page, full-color comic set in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Drawing upon Santa Fe’s colonial history and its contemporary rituals and commemorations, Old Man Gloom explores how historical fact sifts into communal memory and finds new life in a child’s imagination.
