Illustrator, concept design, and storyboard artist, Vancouver, WA
I am an illustrator living in Vancouver, WA with my girlfriend and our two fiesty cats. I am one of those artists who is constantly creating and drawing his own stories either in kid's books or comic books.
I have published a children's book through Action Lab Comics called "Rosco: Alien Wildlife Photographer" and am currently working on another book for kids. The other project I am working on is a 12 issue comic book series called "Godlings". You can find previews for both of these projects on my site.
I started drawing in 6th grade after I discovered comic books. My first comic book was Chris Claremont's X-men followed shortly by Masumune Shirow's Appleseed. Growing up in the Eighties I was surrounded by imaginative toys and comic books that really inspired me to draw and write my own stories.
Art was also a form of therapy for me in dealing with the death of my father and other hardships of growing up. In my worlds I could draw anything and write what I wanted to say. This has become a very important theme in the development of my personal projects. Art has and will always be a major part of my life moving forward. I hope all reading this will take the journey with me.
