Black Snow
I took a break from working on the next issue of Paranormal Pinkerton to do another Black Snow drawing. I wanted to try a few new ideas involving the use of black and white and potential costume tweaks.
You can pick up my very first full length graphic novel on my website at 

Here's the back cover description:


A dying city desperately trying to rise again.

A soon to be broken peace among thieves.

A scripture quoting madman on a murderous rampage.

A conspiracy that goes straight to the top.

The capes are helpless. The law is useless. The people are afraid.

And the only man who can deliver the city from darkness...has a bit of a drinking problem.

A tale ten years in the making...

The first chapter of the Black Snow saga...


Want to know more about it?  Just ask me!
