My Bio
"How long have you been doing this?" Is a common question I get when people see my work, and the answer is "All my life.". I've drawn ever since I was able to hold a pencil in my hands and do something other than chew on it. And while I've taken art classes throughout school, I'm mostly self-taught.

My artwork, as is obvious, is largely presented as comic-style illustration, although I can do many other things, such as portraiture. What I'd like to do with my work is fashion something of a well-rounded career in illustration, from children's books, to RPG manuals, and so on.

I've had several influences when it comes to comic illustration: John Byrne, Curt Swan, Bart Sears, and Alan Davis probably being my biggest ones. I'd also add Jim Lee as an honorable mention.

I've come out of another long art drought, and as some of you may have noticed my current work involves the last Son of Krypton: Superman. I've been in a Superman state of mind in many ways of late, re-reading many of my older Superman comics, and purchasing Superman trades like All-Star Superman, and Superman: Secret Origins. Superman and I have a very long history, as he, along with Spider-Man, was the first Comic-Book Superhero that drew my attention as a young child. My parents bought comics for me periodically, and most of the time it was either Superman, Spider-Man, and occasionally Batman related. To this day, when I see Curt Swan's a
