Welcome to the artistic home of Jesse Moynihan. This site archives Jesse's old comics and illustrations, lingers on his parallel journeys as a musician/composer, planetary/extraplanetary citizen, Adventure Time storyboard artist, etc and revolves around Forming, a graphic novel published as a weekly webcomic starting in 2009, with the occasional hiatus. Each page of Forming goes from paper to scanner and two volumes of Forming have been re-born on paper thanks to Nobrow press. The third volume of Forming is unfolding before your eyes twice a week as Jesse devotes more time to Forming.
As of August 2015, the site has two private blogs for the kindly folks with a few spare ducats. Visit Forming at Patreon for more details about The Lodge and The Temple. There's no automatic synch between Patreon and this site, so you can just create an account here and send us an email with your username so we can give you access.
Old-school RSS is a great way to stay current with the site. The feed shows the title/summary of all new posts, not the full-text: RSS

Site history and old stuff
