Welcome new member Brandon Hayman!

Brandon’s “The After Death” drawings brings a fun and unique perspective to the Texas Cartoonists Chapter. He didn’t start seriously drawing comics until 2019 when he decided to write and draw a different comic-zine a month for the entire year. That was the ignition switch that lit his fire to draw comics again. Check out Brandon’s page!
