My name is Kelsey Neveu. I grew up in the Traverse City area but I now reside in Grand Rapids and work full time at a print shop – River City Reproductions. We can print practically anything there and it’s an incredibly creative environment; it’s not your typical print shop. I’ve been very creative all my life and have always wanted to keep my hands busy drawing, so when I first started reading comics in middle school, it’s all I’ve ever wanted to do. In the past year I have very luckily had the opportunity to assist in coloring a big section of Volume 3 of “The Uniques” by Comfort Love and Adam Withers. It was so incredibly fun to be a part of and I made two very good friends because of it! My first convention was Cherry Capital Comic Con in Traverse City, as well as my first artist alley table. Now, all I want to do is keep taking part in the convention scene anywhere I possibly can as a beginner comic artist.
Currently I am working on a comic series titled “Heaven Help Us.” It’s an urban fantasy in which bodies have plummeted from the sky to the Earth, causing people all around the world to have many questions. Things only become more confusing when these bodies are found with virtually no diseases or health problems. The ones that survived the fall, however, seem to all carry a very dark illness with transformative properties. Right now Issue One is due to be out in May this year, the weekend of Cherry Capital Comic Con. I also digitally illustrate prints for sale as well as take commissions from convention-goers, working traditionally with pens and Copic markers.
