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 (2008 - Author Paul Keery) and "R.B. Bennett: The Grinch Who Gave Away a Million" (2008 -Author Alan Skeoch, unpublished).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

We Are the Dead

I thought I would post some stuff from a World War I book I had been working on. It was to be called "We Are the Dead: Canada and the First World War". I got about 9 pages in and stopped bothering as I'm now focusing on my latest graphic novel "Reload".

The first 3 pages are the prologue featuring the iconic Poppy. It then moves on to the events that started the War. The last page is unfinished. I attempted to write history as well as illustrate it and got bogged down. I don't know if I did history justice. If you want to know how the beginning ends click here
