Greetings. As this is my first post I'll fill you in on what this blog is about.
I am a Freelance Artist living in the greater Vancouver area. I primarily work in book and magazine publishing. I'll be showcasing my artwork here. While the majority of it will be caricatures as well as some cartoon images, I do intend to post other pieces, such as pages from the graphic novels I'm working on. Most of the artwork is available for sale. Right now you can contact my syndicate, artizans.com if you are interested in purchasing anything.
- I have been a Freelance Artist since 2006. I'm married with two wonderful children and live in Maple Ridge, British Columbia. I primarily work in book and magazine publishing. I have illustrated four books so far, "Maple Leaf Forever?" (2008 - Author Paul Keery) and "R.B. Bennett: The Grinch Who Gave Away a Million" (2008 -Author Alan Skeoch, unpublished). Both for Jackfruit Press. In 2012 "Canada at War: A Graphic History of World War Two" was published by Douglas & McIntyre. This was my first graphic novel based on an earlier concept of mine and written by Paul Keery. It was critically praised in Canada and the US, became a CBA best seller and went into 2nd printing. My fourth book "The Night Wanderer", a GN adaptation of the novel by Drew Taylor was released in August 2013. My work has also been published in Kayak and Legion Magazines. My caricatures and stock art are available at artizans.com
