Her series "The Chapel Chronicles" is an all-ages strip that tells of the adventures and fantastic imaginings of Chapel Smith, a Lady Gaga-obsessed 11 year-old with a fondness for elaborate headwear and a pet hedgehog named Rupert who tends to sit on top of her head.

MoCCA 2011 (Drinks on Gary Groth)

Now this little girl was the cutest, sweetest person at the show with the best rehearsed pitch EVER. She came up, introduced herself as Emma T. Capps, explained to me that she is a 14 year old cartoonist who had the Gold Medal at the 2011 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. She then asked if she could give me a submission of comics, buttons and postcards. As if the poise and moxie aren't enough, she is a damn fine cartoonist in her own right. We will be hearing much more from Emma.

We were reminded of this when we crossed paths with Emma T. Capps, a 14-year old, award-winning author, artist, and creator of The Chapel Chronicles, an on-line & print comic that details the wildly silly antics of an 11-year old girl named Chapel Smith.....
