Top 5 Mistakes (I've made over the years)
To many people in comics, I only arrived a few years ago with Joe the Barbarian. Then came Hellblazer (completed in 2008 before I began working on Joe), American Vampire: SOTF, and finally Punk Rock Jesus. Once in a while someone will mention Off Road (an OGN I did with Oni back in 2004), but for the most part it seems like I've been published only these last few years when in fact I've been published professionally for a decade now.
This isn't a plea to have everyone go back through my previous work--in fact, I'm glad that a lot of the books I've done over the years aren't on readers' radars. I'm proud of it all, but the books above are a nice, tight group of titles to be associated with. They're all in a similar brand, they're all recent, they all have good creators/publishers associated with them, and the artwork is mostly consistent. Go back further than that, and you'll see artwork that looks nothing like the stuff I'm doing these days. (Although Off Road still holds up to some de

Newvember Week Three
Still working on rebuilding my neural pathways after my stupid (but life saving!!!) brain surgery. Again... some ideas are pretty average, while some should absolutely be developed further. (Except I always have Max Overacts to do. Oh well! Maybe one day I could work up some scripts and relinquish control enough to try and find other artists to work with.)
Newvember Week Two
My brain game of choosing random prompts to create new characters/story ideas continues! Not all of them have been gold, but I have some serious contenders here, I think, that could survive a proper scripting! :D 


Artist | Professional | Other
Hiya folks! I'm Caanan. A simple cartoonist. I had my first book published in 2010 with DC Comics, called Celadore. It originally ran on 180 pages of secret societies, nymphs, shapeshifters, vampires, genies, a unicorn and kids being kids. Since then, I've been doing Max Overacts on my site, which was nominated for an Eisner Award in 2011, and updates monday, wednesday & fridays (though right now it's tuesdays and fridays because I need to slow down before I hurt myself.)

Current Residence: Calgary, AB
Favourite style of art: Cartoons
Not the greatest at this whole social media thing, but I'm posting here to give it a go anyway!

I'd really love to win this Muppets comp over at Threadless -… - If you're a fan of any of my muppet pieces in my folio, or the Muppet Thor 24 hour comic I did, or just how I draw them, this is a chance to get my take on the lovable troupe on an actual t-shirt!

If you have the time, please throw me a $5 vote, maybe leave a nice comment. The $2,000 prize will also go a long way to getting me back on track with my webcomic, Max Overacts. The more I can earn from my own art and ideas, and little bits and pieces like this, the more I can work on Max and less on seeking freelance.

Thanks in advance for any or all tiniest bits of help guys! :)

I am currently taking commissions, yep! Still have about 7 on my whiteboard I'm slowly getting through, though. Did you have something in mind?

Hey Caanan!
I bought Max Overreacts at TCAF and got around to it and loved it as much as you persuaded and am now catching up on the site.
Keep up the awesome comics.

Thanks for hearing me out at the show and taking a chance. People like you make those LONG hectic days worthwhile. :)
