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, stories, and merchandise.
Visual storytelling is my passion and nearly everything I create becomes an illustrated memoir, graphic novel, or a webcomic. I even co-founded an independent, veteran-centric publishing company (Makoto Press) to share my stories. I've published two books to-date: a graphic novel horror anthology titled Gruesome Tales to Tickle Your Terror Bone and an illustrated memoir 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
