Alan has been published in comics and prose, getting an excellent review in Comic Buyers Guide and having his self-published anthology (developed with illustrator Rammer Martinez) on display at The Baltimore Museum of Art. Alan’s animation has been projected onstage at the New York International Fringe Festival, commissioned by a Bollywood director, and used in boardrooms and music videos. Earlier this year, he published his first novel, Look At All The Happy Creatures, which is sort of like Animal Farm with a Philip K Dick psychedelic kick. He blogs regularly about Synchronicity and is currently editing a new book on the subject, called The Sync Book, due out on 9/11/2011. Synchronicity is also at the heart of a graphic novel Alan is writing called Squares That Touch. With two issues already finished, Squares That Touch is coming together beautifully, mostly because of the interior illustrations by Alan’s wife Melissa and the cover illustrations by Peter Palmiotti.
