About Me

My photo
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 (2008 - Author Paul Keery) and "R.B. Bennett: The Grinch Who Gave Away a Million" (2008 -Author Alan Skeoch, unpublished).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


Nostalgia time. 'Twigs' was a comic strip I tried to develop from around '94 to '98. Apathy, a lack of confidence and the slow death of the syndicated newspaper comic industry were the reason for it's demise.

No regrets. I  always felt and still feel it was lacking. That having been said, I still think it is worthy enough to throw on the web.

'Twigs' revolved around the Twig family, August, April and their son October. Joining the cast were Tankred (also Tancred) a messed up Racoon and Floma a muscular housekeeper from an undisclosed eastern European country.

I'm posting three Sundays' that I coloured a few years back. The dailies are buried in storage.
