Birth announcement I made last week when my wife gave birth to our beautiful baby girl! The design is a homage to a birth announcement drawn by cartoonists Kim Deitch and Trina Robbins to announce their daughter Casey.

Bill Everett Daredevil Homage

June 30th, 2019

Another tribute to the great Bill Everett. This one was fun to draw because of the cartoonish thugs with their campy dialogue. I have also always been partial to DD’s original costume.

By the way, this one was done just for fun but should you be interested in having me recreate any comic book page in my style I would be happy to do so for a reasonable price.

Ghostlight Coffee

May 13th, 2019


Ghostlight Coffee has a Sparkle Comics art gallery on display through the end of May featuring myself and the rest of the Sparkle bullpen! It is fantastic to see so many different styles under the Sparkle banner. If you’re in the Dayton area stop by Ghostlight on Wayne Avenue to see some great comic art and have some amazing beverages too!

Little Bird

March 14th, 2019


Darcy Van Poelgeest and Ian Bertram’s Little Bird #1 released this week from Image Comics. It is a fantastical beautiful nightmare with mystery and oddities abound. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy.

The above is my depiction of a couple (or three) characters from the debut issue drawn while listening to Angels of Light.

Queen of Dark

February 19th, 2019


Yesterday while watching my wife flip through a fashion magazine I saw a striking image. It was a picture of South Sudanese-American model Nyakim Gatwech. I immediately began this pencil drawing of the beautiful “Queen of Dark” which I finished this morning before breakfast.

I like to listen to instrumental music while I draw and this one was done amid the fantastic soundtrack work of Ennio Morricone and Trent Reznor (in case for some odd reason you’re keeping track).
