I grew up in Peoria, Illinois, and studied writing, drawing and graphic design at Bradley
University before moving to Chicago to work
as a graphic designer about four years ago.
But you can read more about that stuff at GordonMcAlpin.com, which highlights my graphic
design and illustration work. That's not what
this site is for.
This website was created as a home
for Stripped Books, an irregular webcomic written and drawn by myself
(with some help from my friends, on occasion). Formerly a popular feature at Bookslut, a
irregularly updated non-fiction strip covering book- and comics-related events
in comics form.
Artists interested in illustrating future installments of Stripped Books are
welcome to contact me with a URL of sample comics pages. A fairly decent ability
to capture likenesses is a must (by “fairly decent,” I mean about
as good as my own or
better, of course).
If you enjoy Stripped Books, you may also enjoy Multiplex,
my weekly, digitally-illustrated webcomic about the staff of the (fictional)
Multiplex 10 Cinemas. Check it out!
visiting… and enjoy!
