Hey all! For those of you who follow my webcomic: "Yet Another Fantasy Gamer Comic," or YAFGC, I've come to a decision that the posting schedule of a new strip every day (it was EVERY SINGLE DAY COME HELL OR HIGH WATER! but since I've gotten very busy with work and fatherhood, it's been reduced to every weekday) is no longer something I want to do. I grew so anxious and disappointed by missing so many once life got busier that I lost a lot of confidence and love for the entire project. 

However, during my recent work  haitus I've had a chance to reconnect with it and the readers and have found a new enthusiasm for it and my beloved characters again, so I've decided that to keep it alive and manageable, I'm going to reduce my output to a new strip every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This will help to greatly extend my buffer and keep things fresh and moving. I hope you readers will be okay with it and stick with me as YAFGC enters its 9th year. 

Keep reading and thanks for sticking with me!

Can anyone translate this one for me? What does it say on my artwork?

I don't know what it is about this particular drawing of mine. The ROUGH version, no less. But this is [at least] the 3rd time it's popped up for sale by some completely different artists. None of them me. Thanks to LordIffy and Ron Chevrier (assuming these are different people) for letting me know and showing me this link:…

I should get this one framed or something!

Obviously I don't update this enough. I'm only doing now, however, because the last one was announcing the 5th anniversary of YAFGC. Which was a while ago and I'm getting sick of seeing it.

Check out the latest batch of uploads and don't forget to read YAFGC and the ComixBlog!

Hey all! Thanks for the huge response to my employement problem! I've got a kabillion commissions lined up that I'm still working on and some of them are ongoing regular things. You guys are the best!

As for what's going on next, I've landed a new contract [with the same old studio], so as of May I'm back in the work force and back to storyboarding TV shows.

I think I'm a little overwhelmed with commissions at the moment, but I am still interested. I've got a bunch on the go right now, but if you really want some of my work and you don't have a pressing deadline, drop me a line. If you've already heard back from me and we've got an agreement, don't worry, I'm still going to do it.

Thanks again for you help and support!

Okay, followers. I'm open for commissions. My prices are visible here and, if you check the nav bar there, you can see my new portfolio (a work in progress, it will update). On the other hand, this site too can work as my portfolio. And if you aren't already, please read my webcomics:

Yet Another Fantasy Gamer Comic,also available in book form!

And currently, Doctor Who: Outrage on my Comix Blog.

So come and get your custom art and help an artist!

So really this is just a placeholder to get rid of that old one that bespoke of woes regarding the comixblog. It's okay. All fixed now. Everything is normal.
Anyone here who follows the Comix Blog, where I posted all of "The 10 Doctors" comic and currently post the "House of Paulus" and the "Doctor Who: Forever Janette" comics, will know by now that the page appears to be GONE. It's a server issue that we're working on, so hang in there. You can talk about it and learn as much as we know at this link:…

It's been a while since I've done a journal here. I guess I've been busy with updating comic stuff. Got more to share if I ever get around to putting it up. Ah well, hang in there! I'm still alive.
So I was cleaning out some webspace, prepping for the big ISP switchover, when I realized that I've got tons of gaming related artwork that isn't on display here. Some of it is and some of it is on my portfolio page, but most of it was on a website for the game(s) that I've since taken down and don't use anymore. Both campaigns are ....well, one's finished, the other is on a sort of an indefinite haitus. The artwork should be viewed. So I'm going to start putting them up here.
Prepare to be inundated with geek cartoonery and pointless joke explanations!
Okay buoys and gulls of DA. I'm taking commissions.
I need to make a bunch of cash to make sure that I can afford to get my family to Montreal for the holidays, so I'm pimping my l33t ski11z.

$20.00 for B&W
$40.00 for Colour
Oops.  Looks like my photoshop games upset someone.
Got reported to management of DA and all my piccies got pulled.
Oh well.  Didn't put a WHOLE lot of effort into them anyway.

Guess you'll just have to look at my ORIGINAL art instead.  You poor saps.
In the interest of turning this back into a gallery of my art rather than a feed for my Doctor Who geek comic, I have, or rather, my wife most graciously has, set up a blog site for that and other random comics I have made.  

I shall leave these first few pages here, at least for a while, until I get sick of seeing them, but they and future updates can be seen here:
