My “Side” Jobs – I do freelance graphic design work (logos, business cards, etc), illustration, and cartoons.
My Passions - Drawing is my first love, mostly pencil and charcoal, but I’ve always liked writing as well, and in recent years, I’ve come to love writing. I’m determined to make more time for both my art (commercial or “fine” art) and my writing. I’ve been helping others tell their stories for years; it’s time I told my own stories.
Lettering Stuff – My Tools: Apple iMac (21″), Apple MacBook Pro (15″), Cintiq 21UX tablet-monitor, Adobe Illustrator CS5.5, Adobe InDesign CS5.5, Adobe Photoshop CS5.5, Manga Studio EX4, pencil, pen, paper, etc. Fonts I Use: On Marvel books I exclusively used Chris Eliopoulos’ fonts while as a part of Virtual Calligraphy, as do the other Virtual Calligraphy guys. You can’t buy ‘em anywhere, kids. Sorry. For all other books I letter, I use fonts by Blambot and Comicraft. I created and use a couple sound-effects fonts of my own that I use, and will design more soon. Lettering Influences: Chris Eliopoulos, John Workman, Richard Starkings, Todd Klein, Tom Orzechowski.
Lettering / Recently Lettered: Invincible, The Walking Dead, Super Dinosaur, Thief of Thieves, Guarding the Globe, Gødland, Officer Downe, Butcher Baker the Righteous Maker, Pigs, Manhattan Projects, Secret, Youngblood, Jim Henson’s The Storyteller, The Gutters (webcomic), some miscellaneous one-shots and mini-series, and other stuff I can’t talk about yet.
Writing / Illustrating: I wrote and illustrated a two page story for Hack/Slash: Trailers Pt 2 (Image Comics), and I’m also working on my own books, as well as collaborating with a couple talented artists. More to come…
