Super Llama: Llamas are awesome! (15)
My Bio
Since 2009, most of my drawing time has been spent working on Fusion, my original comic series (fusion.thecomicseries.com/). Then, starting in 2015, I launched my second on-going series, Dude in Distress (dudeindistress.thecomicseries.…). Both series can be read for free at those links. As a warning, if you don't like light-hearted (at least initially with this series, although things are getting more serious) superhero comics from a guy who loves bad puns, you might want to steer clear. If you can deal with such stuff, I hope you'll enjoy the series.

As you can tell from the pics I've posted, my art is more cartoony than comic-booky, with simple lines and a pseudo-cel-shading style of coloring. My biggest influences are Bruce Timm and early 90s Disney, with a dash of anime.

My favorite animated shows are pretty much anything DCAU, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Clone Wars (both Genndy Tartakovsky's shorts and the new CG series), Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Cardcaptor Sakura, and Vision of Escaflowne. Oban Star Racers also deserves mention. There are other shows that I like, but the ones listed really hooked me story-wise and character-wise. As far as animated movies go, I enjoyed pretty much every Disney film from Beauty and the Beast through Hunchback of Notre Dame(with the exception of Pocohontas); The Incredibles was great; and pretty much anything Miyazaki will get my money.

Enough of the boring stuff. I just hope anyone stopping by here is entertained by what they see.

Links in Deviations Updated

I just noticed that I had old (and dead) links to the webcomic Fusion in the descriptions for a number of images. The URLs in the Star Wars parody ad were also outdated. I have corrected all of those links (and updated the parody ad to the latest version). For those wondering what the correct link should be and don't feel like checking in my gallery (or in previous journal entries), it's  http://fusion.thecomicseries.com/

All Fusion sites are back online!

All Fusion sites are back online!

Actually, Fusion's home site at ComicFury (http://fusion.thecomicseries.com/) was back online shortly after I posted the previous entry, but the site at DrunkDuck is now back as well. DrunkDuck has changed it's name to theduckwebcomics.com, and thus the URL of Fusion's site there has changed as well (it's now located at http://theduckwebcomics.com/Essay_Bee_Comics_Presents_Fusion/). Everything seems to be hunky-dory now.

ComicFury Fusion sites down

ComicFury Fusion sites down

There were some outages over at ComicFury today (the host for Fusion), but everything seems to be working now--EXCEPT FOR FUSION'S SITES! First DrunkDuck goes down (and is still down), and then, mere weeks after announcing that ComicFury is the new primary host for Fusion, ComicFury suffers some down time, after which all Fusion sites fail to come back online. Unlucky coincidence or evidence of some dastardly, villainous plot?

Hi, there. :)

Do you take requests? :)

At this point, most likely not, but you can always make one and if I like the idea and have the time, I might get around to it at some point.
I had first seen your web series on the WWOEC forums. Glad you have the pages to it here on DA too.
She is cute :) Your comics are witty.
