I’ve put together a more easy to navigate online portfolio just in time for San Diego Comic Con. It’s mostly a collection of a lot of drawings you guys have already seen but it also has samples from comics I haven’t published yet online (Flight,  Explorer and sample pages from Silly Kingdom #2) if you were curious to take a peek! :)

I was invited back for another episode of “Guys with Pencils"to talk about…

—————————-

Guys With Pencils Ep 152 - Holy Horse Balls! Someone Stole My Art!

Katie Shanahan and J. Bone have joined us this week to talk about THEFT! specifically, Art Theft. Why Katie and J. you ask? Well because they are victims of having their own pieces of artwork stolen, traced and displayed without having any source credit to the original works or creators! This is a really interesting topic and we were very lucky to have such wonderful artists who can give their accounts as to what steps they took once they realized their work had been stolen.

☆LISTEN HERE!☆
