Time to be amazing together.

Heya, I’m Alex! Welcome to Tradecraft, home of the eponymous newsletter and podcast.

TRADECRAFT is an ongoing newsletter about my journey as a speculative fiction writer of science-fiction, fantasy, mystery, and comic books. Each newsletter is an honest reflection of the steps forward and back, and how I balance my ongoing design and illustration client work with writing projects.

What began in 2019 as a weekly on-line drink and draw with art college friends developed into the TRADECRAFT PODCAST. While the name and format have changed, the mission remains; Find inspiration in the creative journey and process with the people responsible for the books and comics we love.
