Who is Parrish Baker?

Parrish Baker is a Kansas City comics artist and cartoonist, best known for Sparrow's Fall, a series of minicomics begun in 1996. He began drawing comics in 1995. His first comic, Calyx, was a science fiction comic based on earlier, unpublished science fiction novels and short stories.

Sparrow's Fall follows the adventures of Christopher Sparrow and several other characters, mostly animals, including Mr. Nips, the possum, Chirp, the otter, and Mortimer Easter, the cat. They live at the nexus of an alternate universe, which joins ours in Kansas City. They belong wholly to this world, and he belongs to ours, but somehow penetrates theirs, through madness or some other reason. One feature of the alternate world is that little time ever passes, and it is always a year that seems like 1996 to Christopher; apparently time cycles here.

While not an accomplished artist, Baker has been a prolific one, who however is mostly known only in Kansas City. His work has appeared in only one nationally known anthology, the 2003 Small Press Expo Anthology, and two local Kansas City comics anthologies. He has been published in the Kansas City Star, Fire & Knives, and KC Magazine.
