Bio: I started drawing my first comic, Nitsy and Bitsy after the comic that used to run in Gab magazine stopped. I thought that I could come up with something, I drew four comics, and Gab accepted them and drew more.
At that time I also found Robert Kirby's Boy Trouble and started looking for other comics of that nature.
My first comic book was Glitch, a gay romantic comic, often described as a Gay Hate, which is not to far off the mark, since I was reading Hate at the time. I drew 3 issues of the comic, when I got a day job as a graphic designer, which was a lot of work, and I was less inclined to draw all night after working.
Ten years later, with the encouragement of Tim Fish, I drew a comic for his online comic, Young Bottoms in Love. I started drawing more comics after that, often short stories, based on whatever I wanted to write about.
I went back to self publishing my own books, this time with several years of experience from working in educational publishing as production artist. My latest book, Kool Aid Gets Fired is my first professionally printed book (instead of running it off copiers and assembling myself). You can order the book from my site.
I've done coloring for several other cartooonists, and the coloring work for Marvel on the Northstar story that appeared in Nation X #2, about Northstars relationship with his boyfriend, Kyle.
I support myself by doing freelance illustrations for various companies and magazines, and live in New York City.

I don’t know if it’s as big, but it’s definitely has all the crowd-induced frustration that we pay a premium to experience.
But since I can’t control the crowd and can only control my response to it, I just slip into my special place where “Honey Boo Boo” lives and…
