Since 2009 Cameron Callahan has written and drawn the indie comic series Scrambled Circuits, starring a well-intentioned robot named Primus who has robot brothers but lizard parents. As each day goes by Primus tries to connect with those around him – his step and blood family, his coworkers, his friends, interesting strangers – and with each attempt he gets a little closer to understanding others and finding some coherency in a crazy world.
In 2009 I found myself thrown into a startling and unusual situation. Newly unemployed and living in a new town, I decided to funnel some of the anxiety and fear I was experiencing into something I had always wanted to do but never had the courage to actually do it how I wanted to: Make comics.
It’s been almost ten years since then and I have put out over 4 books of the series I started back then, Scrambled Circuits, and I’ve been talked about on a couple podcasts, mentioned on The Comics Journal website as an “artist to watch”, and sold my comics to people all over the world.
