I've also done work for Ape Entertainment on their "Squids" iPhone comic app, and a few as-yet-unreleased issues of "White Picket Fences". Additionally I've designed several mascots for the Rampage Network, logos for various small businesses/sports teams.

Toronto people: Next weekend come find me at the Ad Astra Sci-Fi/Fantasy Convention and get some art! I'll be the one in the nerd-trying-to-make-a-career-out-of-drawing-pictures costume.
Now taking commissions! Send me a note if you'd like me to make you a pretty picture!

Buy My Comics!

Anyone who's known me for a while knows that my dream is to be a professional comics artist and while doing webcomics (and the fans and friends I've made from it) makes me feel like I'm making it happen, it's just not quite the same as being able to hold a comic I helped make in my own hands. Once I can do that, I'll know I'm really on my way. Now, after 10 (long, but short at the same time) years of trying, that's actually about to happen!

Hey! Great to see you! Thanks for the watch! How are things going for you on the circuit?

Not too bad, really. I've done two shows since we met and they've been... alright I suppose. Really low key shows. I've only done two pieces since then. The Iron Man cover that's featured on my profile and one for my gf. I've applied and paid for Toronto Comicon, so we'll see how that goes. How about you? Any big shows coming up?

Nothing booked yet. I should get on that.
