SCRAMBLED CIRCUITS

A COMIC SERIES ABOUT A ROBOT WRITTEN BY A HUMAN.

The Beginning.

In the first part of 2009 Cameron relocated from his home and found himself in the middle of the barren desert wasteland of Hemet, California. He quickly took to being a recluse and spent the next six months writing and drawing the first 30 page Scrambled Circuits book. It contained nine stories about the robot Primus and his connections to the people around him - strangers, friends, coworkers, and the many types of family he has.

Cameron sold copies of his book to dozens of countries all over the planet, which he considers a massive success for a guy in his early twenties with the visual artistic skill just above that of a twelve year old. After that, work began on the next collection of Scrambled Circuits stories.

THE NEXT THREE ISSUES.

During 2010 and 2011 Cameron released another collection of Scrambled Circuits comics, offering them to read for free on various places on the internet and continuing to sell physical copies in person and online. In the beggining of 2012 he found himself emailing a few handfuls of artists, a mix of people he had known for years and people he had more recently met through making his own comics, with a long rambling plea to borrow their uniquely creative brains and hands for a new Scrambled Circuits collection. After months of writing scripts and doodling thumbnails, a few artist switches, and a lot of coffee and alcohol, he released the fourth Scrambled Circuits print comic.

ROBOTS OF THE FUTURE.

It took two years and the help of six immensively talented visual artists but the fourth Scrambled Circuits book was finally finished in November of 2014. The joy of working with such great people, and their enthusiasm for the book, only made Cameron attempt to set his aim even higher up. He currently he in the process of putting together the fifth collection of stories about a confused, but optimistic, young robot and the connections he creates and breaks with the people around him. The first four books were most recently reviewed by Rob Clough, constant minicomic reviewer and occasional columnist for The Comics Journal.

Callahan is clearly a young artist dedicated to the form, getting better in public and grappling with emotional truths from a number of different angles. - Rob Clough
