---------------------------------------------------

Super heroes are America's mythology. The comics medium, a uniquely American art form, appears to have gone mainstream with the popularity of super hero movies however putting our culture's myths in the hands of corporations is a dangerous thing. I strive to foster and create heroes and narratives that are not demoralized nor demoralizing. Post-Modernism is poison, it is meant to rot Western culture out from within and thus a heavy burden falls on the artist to spring anew from the trash culture surrounding him or her, to inspire our people to reconnect with our glorious heritage.

I was trained in traditional American comic book illustrative techniques of comics that were developed over decades by DC and Marvel illustrators. I'm a traditionalist. I always say "Comics is the poor man's film making." I'm a strong advocate for the medium being understood as high art.

This platform will be enriching for both fan and artists alike as I will provide commentary and insights from over 25 years of studying, creating and freelancing in Art. 

As an art teacher I earned fellowships in researching and developing comics for the classroom and have taught comics writing and drawing workshops for years. I was one of the original educators promoting comics as a learning tool in the early 2000s. I have 3 degrees and a very broad freelance career in graphic design, content development, web design, logos, t-shirt designs and more.

*Join me on the heroic journey back to our Western roots through my work, teaching and commentary. Become who you are.

POTENTIAL FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS:
- Original Music
- Kung fu training
- Qigoing training (Chinese Yoga)

I studied traditional painting in Japan and Taiwan for 5 years (along with Buddhism, Taoism, Kung fu and Qigong). I may, if there is interest, develop Chinese landscape courses here as well as teaching Kung fu and Qigong (Chinese Yoga) instructional videos. Interestingly, living outside Western culture has given me deep perspectives on it, there is so much to be proud of, so much to celebrate. Art is one of the greatest means of doing so.
