My Bio
I graduated from The Joe Kubert School in NJ, 1995. Live in Norway, born in Illinois. Worked with lots of comics, Bill The Bull as an inker in 1994 and Mad Magazine in Norway 1996. Recent years veered more toward creating CD covers for cool psychedelic bands i like, which include National Steam, Oresund Space Collective and Architectural Metaphor. I am also a music critic for a newspaper in Norway who also publish my comix, called "Gateavisa" who are a bunch of old hippies. I also host live hour FM radio shows in Oslo with Jon Christian from Tarkus Magazine with some degree of success.

With an Ankh dangling from my black turtleneck polo, The Tibetan Book Of The Dead under my arm, and the Crowley Deck Tarot.... ...I take on the Third Bardo cause i was 5 years ahead of my tyme...... into The Cathedral of Chaos, meet the Stormbringer comin'! I haven't read Marvel for years, what the hell happened to Marvel??? At least 'Warrior On The Edge of Time' is getting the remaster treatment in the near future. Bless Hawkwind & all living beings.

Have a happy Birthday...where ever you are...:)
Seriously, you should do your own Hawkwind or Jerry Cornelius comic;
it would be brilliant I am sure.

You can post prose/poetry in DA too.

Like your posts on the Hawkwind list too. ;)
i have had ideas for Hawkwind comix, and i am contributing to some future issues of Hawkfan, some pieces are up here, like the Reptoid Knight / Saint and the Utopian Blaster piece. I totally spammed the Hawkwind list recently with shameless self promotion for my stuff but someone pointed me to DA so thats sorted no future episodes hehe.
It was I which pointed you towards DA. Thought it
might be helpful creatively and professionally.

We Hawkfans gotta stick together..... ;)
cheers Nate! love the CDs, abit modern floyd and modern metal, a tad complex and spaced too.
