"Twigs" was a comic strip I developed in the mid '90's. At the time my dream was to become a syndicated cartoonist. I idolized people like Bill Watterson (Calvin & Hobbes), Berkely Breathed (Bloom County) and Gary Larson (The Far Side) but I'm not much of a writer and a bit of a perfectionist, so I laboured on Twigs for a few years and never bothered to send it out. Several years ago I decided to colour some of my Sunday strips and put them out on the web. I've given them a home here. I figure they deserve a bit of exposure.
- 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 (2008 - Author Paul Keery) and "R.B. Bennett: The Grinch Who Gave Away a Million" (2008 -Author Alan Skeoch, unpublished).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.
