webcomics, writings, visual art
My name is Megan Beard. I was born in Kansas City, Missouri on December 21st, 1979 (so now you can take note of that and send me birthday presents accordingly). I grew up in the KCMO area until I was three, then my family moved to Coral Springs, Florida and I lived there until I was nine before moving back to a lovely wellspring of cultural and intellectual stimulation known as “Olathe, Kansas.” I existed there until I was done with high school, after which I promptly moved to Lawrence, Kansas for university, where I received my BFA in New Media with a minor in Art History from the University of Kansas in 2003.
After living for several years in Chicago, I relocated to Brussels, Belgium permanently in 2007.
In addition to being an English Language instructor (day job ftw!), I am a music journalist, graphic novelist, and a mixed media artist. I am currently working on an embroidery series based on Margaret Atwood’s A Handmaid’s Tale and a graphic novel about Leopold & Loeb.
