Fusion Halloween
Happy Halloween! This pic of Fusion dressed for Halloween was actual posted at the Fusion site (fusion.thecomicseries.com/) last year, but I never uploaded it here. That situation has now been corrected!

Fusion #15 Cover
Whoops. Forgot to upload this a few weeks ago (currently up to page 10 in the issue; new pages every Tuesday at fusion.thecomicseries.com). Obvious nod to Scooby Doo, as Fusion gets involved in some multi-multiversal adventures with aid from Wandering Whistler and Blue Banshee (Blue Banshee is creation and property of Miss Jadis--www.deviantart.com/miss-jadis-… used with permission).

Fusion Flight Two-Tone Image
A simple two-tone image I did for my webcomic Fusion (fusion.thecomicseries.com). First time I tried something like this, and I like the way it turned out. Might have to try this with some of my other characters.

The Galactic Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
Got the idea for this while out on a run today. Mixing two of my favorite things--Twain and Star Wars--was fun. The story summary seemed natural, considering the plot of Huck Finn and The Force Awakens. Took about and hour to slap together, and the cover design is based on some of my Twain collections.

Dude in Distress Episode 1 Print Version Ad
For all of you fans of Dude in Distress, the trade collection of Episode 1: Falling for You  is now available to order from Indyplanet.com (see all of the print/digital editions of my comics at www.indyplanet.us/brands/essay… ).

Pictured is the cover to the trade collection (except the actual cover doesn't have all of the extraneous advertising text, of course).

As always, you can read it for free at dudeindistress.thecomicseries.… (story is currently far into Episode 2).

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 The URLs in the Star Wars parody ad were also outdated.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  fusion.thecomicseries.com/

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.

Favourite genre of music: Prog-metal
Favourite style of art: Toon
Operating System: Windows
Favourite cartoon character: Yakko

Glad you like it. I'll probably post updates roughly every 5 pages (so 3 more updates for Issue #1). If you add me to your Watch list, I can send you a message whenever I update. Thanks for taking the time to drop me a line!
