After growing up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Brown moved to Chicago in 2000 to pursue an MFA at the School of the Art Institute. By the time he finished his studies, Brown had abandoned painting and started drawing comics seriously. His first self-published book, "Clumsy," appeared seemingly out of nowhere to grab attention from both cartoonists and comics fans. Brown specializes in personal and intimate works detailing moments in relationships. He writes and draws his comics in sketchbooks, and his drawing style mirrors the strain and awkwardness of the situations he depicts. Brown lives in Chicago with his wife Jennifer and their two sons.
Established as a sensitive chronicler of bittersweet young-adult romance and nonsensical superhero parody, Brown's current direction remains split between autobiographical material, examining the minutiae of everyday life, whatever humorous fiction he feels in the mood for, and a wide range of fiction subjects in his series Sulk. Brown has also created two series of books set in the Star Wars Expanded Universe (Under the "Legends" & "Infinities" brands).
Brown's most popular works include "Clumsy" (the story of a long-distance relationship), "Unlikely" (the story of how Brown lost his virginity), and "AEIOU" (Any Easy Intimacy (Over Us)), comprising the so-called "Girlfriend Trilogy", and its epilogue, "Every Girl is the End of the World For Me." More recently his autobiographical work has included "Little Things" and the memoirs "Funny Misshapen Body" and "A Matter Of Life." His humorous works include "Bighead" (a super-hero parody), "I Am Going To Be Small," "Cat Getting Out Of A Bag," "Kids Are Weird," and the graphic novel series "Incredible Change-Bots."
His work has been featured in MOME Summer 2005 Vol. 1, as well as Drawn and Quarterly Showcase, McSweeney's #13, and The Best American Comics 2007. He was also featured in local newspapers such as the Chicago Reader and NewCity.
Brown's "To Phoenix I'm Sorry I Missed You" was published in the Spring 2008 issue of The Florida Review.
Brown has written and drawn seven books set in the Star Wars Expanded Universe. Brown has produced four humorous takes on Darth Vader as a hapless father to young Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia: "Darth Vader and Son," "Vader's Little Princess," "Goodnight, Darth Vader," and "Darth Vader and Friends." Brown has also created three volumes in his Jedi Academy series, which are young-adult novels done in the mixed cartooning and diary style of the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid series," set in the Star Wars Universe.
