Professional Information

Biographical Statement

A recent graduate of the University of Florida's English department in the "Comics and Visual Rhetoric" track, Tof Eklund's interests range from the prints of William Blake to the comics of Diane DiMassa (author of Hothead Paisan, Homicidal Lesbian Terrorist) and from sumi-e to pixel art. His dissertation, Time and Narrative in Depthless Visual Media addresses the importance of visual details to the construction of narrative in visual media through the application of Deleuze and Guattari's theories of media and surface, Donald Ault's incommensurable narratology, and old-fashioned close reading.

He is now a Course Director in Full Sail University's media-focused Creative Writing MFA program, where he teaches classes on Character Development and Writing for Games.
