"Do not go gently into that good night -- Rage, rage against the dying of the light." - Dylan Thomas

Father, writer, techie, and artist residing in the Great White North.

I produce all my work digitally and do not use traditional illustration media. Photoshop and a Wacom are my main tools, along with my camera, and Poser sometimes plays a role. I know PS isn't a "drawing" program per se, but I've been using it as such for almost twenty years and it works.

I've worked with a variety of small, independent press publishers and individuals over the years, both in a professional and a hobby capacity, and really enjoy it. I've also served as the head web and graphic designer, and photographer, for award-winning, internationally known resorts, and have created ads for magazines, business brochures, and logos, though you won't find reproductions of those items here.


If you have a commission request, I will happily take it, though I have mainly worked for small and independent presses in the tabletop gaming community doing full color and grayscale work for rulebooks and book covers. Line-art and spot-color work are not my thing -- they just don't fit my style or method.

Rates vary, but for ballpark figures: a full-page color illustration or cover design may cost from $200 to $600. Quarter-page grayscale cost around $25, half-page grayscale costs around $50, etc. I also have a pretty cool contract which has always kept everyone happy, and either side from getting screwed: half up front, half on completion, and full contact throughout the process.

If you're interested, give a shout.

You can also read some of my fiction, or check out my role-playing games if you are so inclined.


Are You There Warren?
A parody novel cover with which to disturb your childhood, inspired by one of the songs off the latest album by The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets -- you can easily guess which...I had an earworm for DAYS -- and the obvious classic early-teen book that juxtaposed with the former in my head...

I spent a long time trying to match the fonts with the book the design was based on. Got pretty close, but I eventually had to hand-paint the title font. At first I was going to try and match the washed-out pencil style of the source design's cover image, but, well, dark, bleak shadows are apparently my thing; I might give it a crack again in the future, just for (more) kicks, but I think it came together pretty well.
Peaslee Papers By Greyorm
Cover for Peter Rawlik's new novel, The Peaslee Papers, published by Lovecraft eZine Press.

Depicting Mr. Rawlik and mine's personal take on a member of the Great Race Yith, reaching forth into the mind of one of the primitive hominids of the 20th century. The design utilized texturing and physiology similar to ancient, extinct rugosa-type and modern barnacle, with the bright coloring of many sea-creatures, and I altered their base somewhat from Lovecraft's descriptions with a structure not purely conical, and their claws less bulbous.
