"Old School art and proud of it!"

I'm primarily a comics artist, but also do cartooning, illustration, storyboards and have done 3D computer graphics and animation.

In comics I've worked for a number of indie publishers, including A.C. Comics, Moonstone, Sequential Pulp, Dark Horse, Monsterverse, Locust Moon Comics, Revisionary Press and Vortex among others.

I was writer and artist on the official daily strip "Bob and Doug", based on the SCTV "Great White North" characters Bob and Doug McKenzie. I also did the book "Strange Brew" based on the MGM movie: "The Adventures of Bob and Doug McKenzie: Strange Brew".

Currently the artist on the weekly Edgar Rice Burroughs' THE WAR CHIEF comic strip and have completed a Tarzan adventure which appears in the JUNGLE TALES of TARZAN graphic novel from Dark Horse Comics.

Current Residence: Canada
Favourite style of art: Sequential art
Favourite cartoon character: The Spirit
