It’s in The 40s is written and illustrated by Iris Amelia, a 22-year-old South Florida native who moved to Boston, Massachusetts to pursue a master’s degree.

Iris currently attends Emerson College as a graduate student in its writing and publishing M.A. program. She is looking to pursue an academic track in electronic publishing, while (hopefully) producing a thesis on webcomics and/or graphic novels.

Before moving to Boston, Iris graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s in English from Florida International University (go Panthers!), focusing on Renaissance literature and contemporary/Modernist American poetry. She illustrated a comic for her school paper, The Beacon, called Stop the Presses! – which coincidentally centered upon a collegiate newspaper staff – as well as provided editorial cartoons while serving as both editor and staff writer of The Beacon’s Op-Ed section.

Iris has also contributed to eHow and Associated Content (eons ago, but hey!).

She also has a DeviantArt profile. (Man, that’s old school.)

  1. Got here through the Multiplex site you drew guest art for. Woo, another comic diary! I’ll follow you for a bit. And hurray for someone else who reads Oglaf.

    It looks like you’re actually going to try and achieve something with a comic blog, so I wish you the best of luck. It’ll prolly be tough, but lots of fun. 🙂

      Mwaha, Oglaf is awesome.

      Thanks for reading! I checked yours out too – I like it! So cute and tiny!

      Good luck to you too! Oh, I know it’s going to be tough, but I’m ready! I think. I hope. 😉
