This is the first page from a collaborative comic that I did with Patrick Kyle for the 666th issue of Secret Prison. It was pretty erotic. I inked all his stuff and he inked all mine. I also did this ad for Koyama Press, which will be printed in there somewhere...
I am honoured to be included in the second issue of Study Group Magazine! I did a three-pager about the Beastlord. The actual issue will be printed in two-colours, so I'm pretty excited to see the final product. I am humbled that I was asked to participate, as the first issue carried such a wealth of talent!
I think this is slated to debut at this year's inaugural Chicago Alternative Comics Expo (CAKE), where I will be exhibiting with Koyama Press.
Thanks a ton to Zack Soto.

I recently did these four images for the Tremors Contemporary Theatre Festival in Vancouver.
Clockwise from the top left, the plays are: The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, Giant Invisible Robot, Endgame, and A Last Resort.
These are a couple of alternative images that were turned down (Judas and A Last Resort respectively). I would've preferred this one for A Last Resort, but it ain't up to me!
Whenever I do poster stuff, I try to work out of my comfort zone. I drew these all using my tablet. They were looking for a unifying theme. Can you guess what it is?
So that's how they turned out! So big! I wish I could see these things in person. They are also For now I have to rely on my buddy Daryl (pictured in full Endgame costume) to relay me the details.
Thanks a ton to Daryl King, Kellee Ngan, Kristen Johnson, and Laura Efron.
