"Val has the ability to make everything beautiful! Whether it's the written word, illustrations, or graphic design, she has the magic touch. She's a powerhouse designer and a true professional."

Benjamin Baily, Nerdist

"Those True Crime Cards...(creators) Jones and Collier were bad-ass women...they took heat for it!...a bunch of interesting information..."

Karen Kilgariff & Georgia Hardstark, My Favorite Murder Podcast

"Val's eye for mechanics and ear for rhythm can insure that any media content she proofs is clear, precise, beautiful, and most of all, memorable."

Erin Martin-Elston Professor of English, Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo


I started out with comics, creating my own successful imprint, and moving on to projects like Miracleman, True Crime Trading Cards (creator), Classics Illustrated, Clive Barker novels, Dragonriders of Pern, Deathdealer, Born to Be Wild, and more. I have worked in comics as an editor, writer, artist, and publisher. Then I branched into graphic design and project management for toys, animation, product packaging, marketing, political collateral, and more. I learned HTML5, CSS, and other skills so that I could produce digital work like websites, UX/UI, email, learning management systems, and apps. I also worked in education, making print and digital materials for learning disabled adults and children, including textbooks, tests, and innovative teaching tools.

My focus now is to use my skills and talents to make great stuff, teach others, and do good in this world.
