Bio: My only real claim to fame is having done card art for Magic: The Gathering, Harry Potter and the new Hecatomb game for Wizards of the Coast. Oh, I did some inking and cover work for Malibu Comics (including four cover paintings for Deep Space Nine), but the cards have gotten much more attention!
ATM I'm interested in building a career drawing and painting comics! In addition a fun little "fur"otic comic called Rocketship Rodents which continues to be published once or twice a year, I am hoping to finally get my Platypus Rex book published after its long sojourn in digital storage.
The big NEW project is called The Mark of Aeacus in collaboration with well-known Prism personality and eloquent scribe Charles "Zan" Christensen. Aeacus is a full color, hard-edged supernatural comic with a gay "hero" who is caught up in a web of troubles when he goes to a hotel with a strange man...a night to remember becomes a nightmare he wishes he could forget. The title is now available through Class Comics!
