An indie comic book inker in his spare time...
Interests
I, as an artist, have very little expectations in what I do, or as a result of what I do.  I have a firm grasp on the reality behind the niche in art known as comic books; I don't have the false expectations that me, doing what I do now, producing as I do now, am at a level that will lead me to working on the characters I've grown up loving.  Nor do I believe that I'm close to attaining that level.  I understand the level of dedication it takes to reach such a point just to get there, and then moreso to remain.  I do not have false expectations.

Now, that being said, yes, I have been more than fortunate to have some work published.  Most notably are:

Deadly Harvestarcana.com/view_issue.php?id=4…

and the soon to be released

Tokyo Wonderlandwww.kickstarter.com/projects/1…

and

Agent: Wildwww.kickstarter.com/projects/1…

There was also a few pages in "Longhunters #3" published under Earthbound comics:

www.indyplanet.com/front/?prod…

This obviously, doesn't include all the work I've done that hasn't seen publication.  There's LOTS of those pages...I have a drawer...a big drawer...

In my quest to attain my less than professional level as an artist, I've had the pleasure of working with some great people; and for that, I am grateful.  Grateful for all the opportunities I've been afforded, grateful to all those of ANY level for the words of encouragement, and grateful to those that are a level or more above what I do, that allow me to keep doing what it is that I do.

The reason I bring this up is my recent acquisition of some very cool pencils.  I rarely anymore, work over pencils for which I haven't had permission given to me by the penciler.  I email/note/comment almost every artist these days personally asking for permission on certain pieces; more often than not, I get the permission I have sought (which goes into a "Permission from the Artist" folder), and sometimes I get no response at all. (which then goes into a "Awaiting Permission" folder)  I believe it offers to both artists of the individual piece, a mutual level of respect as the initial form of contact.  Lines are drawn, contracts are written...we each know what our role is at that point.

All that just to say it's greatly appreciated; I'm incredibly grateful. Thank you.

As well, here's a few dA members I've had the pleasure of working with that you should most definitely check out:
