Welcome to JaredManninen.com! There is a lot of content, so pace yourself.I use the site to share aspects of my life with friends, family, and fans. Also, it serves as a storefront to showcase my art, books, and merchandise.
Storytelling is my focus in life and nearly everything I work on supports making books, graphic novels, and comics. I even co-founded an independent, veteran-centric publishing company (Makoto Press) to share my stories. So far I've published two books: a horror anthology titled Gruesome Tales to Tickle Your Terror Bone and an illustrated story about my 6 month hike on the Appalachian Trail titled MEGA '99: Adventures of an Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker.
Contact me with questions, comments, or inquiries (especially if you see something you'd like to buy!). -- Jared
