BADGER FINALLY PUBLISHED






A long time ago in a galaxy far away I drew a Badger story for the Bloody Red Baron.  While having steaks at his humble abode to my surprise I saw that they finally published it!

Mile High Comics Thunder Monkey #1 Exclusive Variant cover to feed homeless in Denver

I am offering up Thunder Monkey #1 to feed the homeless in Denver. In collaboration with Bob Conway and the owner of Mile High, Chuck, there is available an exclusive Mile High variant cover with all proceeds going directly to feed people in need. If you missed the kickstarter, here's your chance to get a copy of the book. And if you helped fund the kickstarter, you get an extra thanks for making this charity possible.

Why help the homeless?  I believe that we should take care of our sick and needy.  Mental illness is a big part of it, and until we can better understand how to better help our sick, this is one thing we can do.  I don't think I'd last one night sleeping on a sidewalk in the Colorado winter.  I certainly wouldn't choose to sleep there.

Wonder Woman VS Magneto





Words by Jim McCloskey.  Art by Lee Oaks.

I'm sort of obsessed with matching up DC characters with their Marvel equivalents, so when I got this commission I was thrilled!  The big two have copied each other since the beginning.  I really wanted there to be more crossovers.  
I think a crossover would be great as a charity event.  Both companies have similar multiverse concepts going currently with multiple versions of earth.  It wouldn't be hard to have DC's Earth 1 and Marvel's Earth 616 cross paths.

CANADIAN WAR MUSEUM - GRAPHIC NOVEL EXHIBIT: DEADLY SKIES

The Canadian War Museum in Ottawa has an incredible larger than life comic book exhibit featuring my art.  It's larger than anything I've ever seen in San Diego, Angoulême or even the museums in Brussels.  Personally I think it merits recognition in the sequential art community.  You can see footage of the exhibit at the link here:  http://ottawacitizen.com/entertainment/local-reviews/war-museums-deadly-skies-exhibit-a-mix-of-sentiment-thrill-and-tragic-horror

Thank you to all those who made the Thunder Monkey Kickstarter campaign a success. Not only did you make my dream come true, but as an unplanned offshoot, Thunder Monkey became a fundraiser for the homeless of Denver.  I can't express my gratitude enough.

Work for Canadian WW1 Museum








I recently picked up inking digitally.  It enables me to produce lines that remind me of Andre Juillard and Floch.  I thought this project would be perfect for a clear line European style.  Time was limited so I budgeted 2 hours per page for rough pencils, and did the perspective during the inking stage.
