It's been awhile everyone! I thought I'd post samples of my most recent comic book project "The Maroon" here on Deviant Art. I've been working on this labor of love since last May. If you are interested, visit www.themarooncomic.com for more!
The Maroon vs. The Stiff Legged Bear
Why does that oversized bear have impractical tusks, you ask? Long ago, it was assumed that the legendary "Stiff Legged Bear" seen by first nation native peoples was the last of the North American Mastodon. I figured it would be fun to fuse the two creatures into one.

Nostalgiac, inspired, and a day-dreamer. Born in the late 70's but a product of the 80's. I absorbed all things Godzilla, After-school cartoons, breakin' and cinematic. Giant robots, bird-themed ninjas, and giant rubber monsters are my heroes. Mutant turtles and duck adventurers are my allies. And a desire to see things in a singular fashion is my enemy.


Favourite genre of music: varied

Ah so, aside from having a massive event that was my fiancee's baby shower this past weekend, I also had the good fortune of being able to get back to the convention floor and sell my books Poverty Pack and Poverty Thrill Adventures.

Conventions are an amazing thing, for those of you fortunate enough to attend, the first few times is a mind-blowing assault on your geek senses. I remember going to my first con waaaaaay back in 89 or so in New Haven, CT. It was like I discovered the world's biggest toy box.

Eventually I wound up in Southern California, where I've been to several conventions, including the mother of all, San Diego.

A little background on myself: Since I was 4, I knew I enjoyed creating characters and world-building in the format of comics. It would seem to be a strange thing to hold onto for so long, but I never let that go. While my classmates would say typical things like "I wanna be a fireman" or "cop" or "Movie Star", I was just hoping I could do something that would be entertaining and visually interesting. Comics allows you to do whatever you want, no matter how absurd.

So here I am at the ripe age of 40. I've achieved a personal success: I along with my friends, have self published two indy titles, to which I serve not only as penciller, but inker, colorist, letterer and co-creator (most importantly). So far we have 8 issue sin the can, one trade we just premiered, and I'm more pumped than ever doing this.

The biggest fuel? meeting and greeting people from our table at conventions such as Long beach. Nothing inspires me more to keep going than that camaraderie you get seeing other doing what you do, sharing experiences, showing their stuff. Having kids look at your work in awe is why I do this; surely if I cannot be a great artist, I can at least make that one impression that triggers their ambition much the way mine was way back in '78.

It's a good feeling to create, but it's even better coming back from a place of mass inspiration, creative energy and awestruck visitors.
