About Me

Chadley McKnife - Multimedia Artist & Writer

I'm Chadley (He/It/They/She), a 20 year old writer, artist, and future corpse from the US! I have been drawing and telling stories my entire life, and have been studying visual storytelling seriously on my own since the start of my teen years. I'm interested in all aspects of storytelling, how to do it, and how it functions as a part of a culture. I've been doing my current webcomic, Life After Earth, since around 2018 (preperation and writing began in 2018, and I began uploading actual pages online in 2020).

I write, draw, sew, paint, and I do animation and videos when I have the time. I also occasionally dabble in other artistic mediums. My writing is primarily science fiction, fantasy, and horror, and I write both prose and comic scripts. My work tends to contain LGBT representaion, depictions of mental illness, and a healthy amount of body horror! I currently do most of my digital art using Medibang Paint.

Other fun facts about me: I am an athiest and consider myself politically aligned with anarchism and feminism. Because of my interest in storytelling and narrative, I am also interested in belief and the way people narrativize reality. I enjoy learning about religion, folklore, the occult, conspiricism, and other things connected to the ways people try to make sense of the world! I'm also interested in history as a hobby.

Languages: Currently know: English (native language) - Currently learning: Esperanto + trying to learn a functional amount of English Sign Language and American Sign Language
