Howdy Fans and Artists!!

First off thanks for stopping by! This page is for Fans who want an inside look at my art, and be a part of the action! (That is, the creating process!) For Aspiring Artists who want a little more insight into drawing and creating, but also those who want to take their Comic Art to the next level, gaining tips and techniques 10 years in the making! Lastly, what I'm most excited for, this page is for those who want to be a part of helping me not only Make Great Comics, but Making Comics Great Again!! Not that ALL comics are horrible, don't get me wrong, there are a few I still enjoy, but if you long for the day of 80's- 90's comics, the days of Image, the glory days of the X-Men, when things were simpler, when comics had a life to them that has long since dried up and disappeared into the abyss... If you long to read those type of comics again, then JOIN ME as I create comics like that!! Bring back the awesome that was once comics, what made you fall in love with them in the first place! Comics that will inspire you again, and inspire a new generation the way they once inspired you!!

I've been working on my own projects in the beginning phases for years, constantly having to put them off and juggle them beside other people's work. With your help that can be a distant memory!! This journey won't happen overnight, it will be done with care one comic at a time, created with pride, done right! Then eventually as we grow, an entire Comic Company will bloom. Yes, that is the end goal. You will see it grow and you can even be included in the creative process as we discuss in the patron-only feed. I will share development and ideas with you and you can give me your feedback. I'll even let you decide which comics I should do first... what are you most excited about seeing come to life? Then... eventually... have your name in the credits!! It will be a team effort, but with your support, no matter how much, it will get done!

WHY SUPPORT ME??

I have a Fire in my belly, and something to prove! I've been turned down by the Big Two, and yet countless people tell me, "Why aren't you drawing comics, your art is amazing!" I want to create comics, and let's be honest, the comics industry needs some new material! So let me bring you my ideas and creations! Below are a few brief creator owned ideas and stories I've been working on for a while.... and you tell me if you think they are something you want to see brought to life! These will become the comics that I mentioned... and start the groundwork for a future comic company...




This is a comic that I got the idea for way back in High School, while much has changed the idea has stayed the same... have our hero trained and put to the test in worlds that harbor Ninja's, Monsters, robots, you name it! While I don't want to give too much away, let's just say our hero, Warren, is flung into a world and plot that he has yet to learn he is even a part of. How would you respond if you were shoved into a world and told to survive!? What weapons would you choose? What allies would you make?

DEVELOPMENT?
So where do I stand in the process of creating Wargun? I have the story all broken down and laid out and I have the first 10-11 pages sketched out and ready to go. I just need to finalize the script, but the plot is all finished!
Here's some more art of Wargun...

NEXT UP.... BEOWULF



BEOWULF is a story that has enthralled me since I first read it as a kid. I still enjoy reading it and want to bring it to life in a Graphic Novel form, telling the tale from start to finish. I've been working on it a lot lately actually, really hammering the story out and fleshing out who BEOWULF really is as a man. He almost comes across as a superman type character, larger than life, battling sea monsters and all kinds of ungodly creatures, but what makes him tick, what does his character tell us about true strength? Manliness?
Sure movies have been made of the tale, but to me none of them capture the true essence and power of the classic story. Too much is left out or just plain altered. I want to stay true to the original, use alliteration, use rhyme like the classics used to, but just bring it to life with the full force of the comics medium. Make it awesome! Oh, and did I mention I want to do it in a Frank Miller, Jim Lee- Deathblow style? How sweet would that be?!
Beowulf vs. Grendel... like you've never seen it before!

PROGRESS... I have the breakdown of the book all done, I've started laying out the first few pages and really refining the script, right now I've been working on this the most vehemently. I really love this story!

Shadow Sentry is an X-Men meets the Matrix type of story, a Superhero team type comic that asks the question... what if you had a near death experience, but when you returned from the other side, you brought back a piece of eternity with you? A part of the unseen, the supernatural? You awoke to find you had supernatural powers and were able to break the laws that govern the world around you.

But not only those who have gone to the farthest heights were coming back with supernatural powers, but the farthest depths as well.

In this story, we dive into the midst of a war; Hell is amassing an army on earth, and are beginning a new battle, fought not with Demons but humans. In the few centuries since this battle has been waging, legend and lore have correctly recorded the Darkness’s dealings on earth; Vampires- immortals who love blood; Frankenstein- a man brought back from the dead with unnatural strength; Werewolves and ghouls- freakish creatures from the other side; and Witches- whose knowledge of the dark arts gives them powers over the elements and more.

Now, Heaven is choosing it’s own warriors as well. Powers are bestowed, meant for good and fighting the dark ones. These warriors who have been chosen to be Guardians of the Light have formed a shadow organization, a secret institution, whose purpose is to protect the innocent, and to stop the spread of the Legion of the Dark on the earth. They are the Watchers, Knights of the way, and Guardians of light... they are the SHADOW SENTRY.

Check out some art and characters from the book...







PROGRESS... Plot and story 99% finished... No pages started or laid out. Would be an ongoing series...

Lastly... ONE: AVEN's QUEST



Aven's Quest is a fantasy type story, a real Lord of the Rings Epic type deal with swords and magic, mystical creatures etc. EPIC!!
Aven (Who I actually named my son after! (So he would really like me to do this story someday!)) is our main character who stumbles upon a special sword. A sword whose bearer has been foretold to bring about the end of the reign of terror that has plagued the kingdom for decades. But being too young at the time... they just thought it was a mistake, put the sword back, and told the kid to get lost. Ha!
But the sword never left his mind, and now being older, he wants it! And as fate would have it, the time is nearer than ever for there to be a hero and someone to stand up to the Dark Lord Hellion. You'll follow Aven on an adventure, finding allies, friends, and the awkwardly funny Mage, Benediah; hunting down mystical weapons for the journey; and fighting Enemies big and small.

This story will be a real pleaser for young and old, for those who love epic adventures and surprises around every turn!

PROGRESS... This story has the basic framework in place, most of the plot points have been laid down, but much has to be done as far as finalizing and character work. This is a project that has been in the works, like Wargun, since Highschool, but has been constantly developing and being refined and finalized. As I said, the story is Epic, and would be an Epic undertaking. But I'm up for the challenge!!

So there you have it! My comic ideas that some I have never shared before, until now! I want to see these stories become a reality, and I would love your help doing it! Please join me as I bring back the good Ol' days of comics and ignite your passion and love for this amazing medium! Please join me on this adventure!!
