Your fiendish friend Aidan is back! By day I’m a freelance illustrator and storyboard artist, working on client/studio jobs that pay the bills and keep the big bad landlord away. When I’m not working for others, however, I’m working for myself creating my own comics and other fun artistic adventures!

I love creating comics and have done so for as far back as I can remember, but as anyone in RealWorldLand will tell you, it can be mighty difficult to make a living this way. I still follow the trail laid out by the comic books and newspaper strips that I grew up with so long ago, and with your help I can continue to create new stories for everyone to enjoy

Read on, my friends, to see what’s happening on the ol’ drawing board.

SCAPULA
The World’s Worst Villain…and I do mean the WORST. A frustrated grouch in a spooky skeleton costume, Scapula fights an ongoing battle to prove his worth as a supervillain. To do that he’ll have to stake his claim in the underworld, competing with crazed crooks, monsters, gangsters, and other sick minds. The worst has only just begun!

Scapula is my major creator-owned comic series; first self-published in 2007, Scapula has continued on in web and print comics for ten years and counting.

Thanks to the ongoing support of Patrons I was able to create the special tenth-year anniversary issue, Scapula and the Sinister Monster Doom Legion! The book was successfully crowdfunded and printed, all thanks to your support and generosity. More stories are in the works, and you'll see the progress as it goes!


DADA HYENA'S CREATURE SHOW
Monsters, monsters, monsters! Dada Hyena’s Creature Show is an annual publication of horror-themed artwork, featuring my renditions of famous monsters, vampires, werewolves, zombies, slashers, kaiju, and other cinematic frights.

Dada Hyena's Creature Show is a popular item at my convention table and will continue every year for as long as people love the classic creeps and critters.


The SCARECROW SPOOKSHOW
Retired horror-movie host Barron DeMonte lives in a world of silver-screen shocks that have been his act-in-trade for decades. Can he readjust to a semi-normal life, raising his two grandkids while dealing with the monsters, ghosts, and other terrors that invade his quiet neighborhood?

As a child I loved newspaper comic strips, beginning a lifelong dream to join my artistic heroes on the beloved Sunday pages. With the gradual demise of newspapers I decided instead to release my intended comic strip, The Scarecrow Spookshow, as part of D.C. Comic’s Zuda competition in 2009…where it met with an astounding thud among very vocal critics.

Out of all of my personal projects The Scarecrow Spookshow has had the most difficult history, which is why I am determined to give it the chance it deserves to become something great. After nearly a decade of silence I am returning to the series with the intention of creating a graphic novel for children and young adult readers. This family-friendly collection of imaginative short stories will be enjoyed by readers both young and old, human and otherwise, and Patrons will see it every step of the way.



So far you’ve seen that a lot of my upcoming projects are still in development. For your support in the meantime I am offering a lot of great rewards and general amusement.

Previews and behind-the-scenes peeks
See work-in-progress screenshots and sketches of new comics as they are made, along with videos of the art-making process.

Drawing Requests
Twice a month I will draw something new based on suggestions from Patreon backers of any level, no matter how utterly ridiculous it may be (any gore or porn will be censored, though). Let’s hear some REALLY crazy ideas from the peanut gallery!

Critiques for young bright-tailed bushy-eyed artists
Are you an artist or student looking for a critique or just some professional advice? I will be offering feedback and, for the higher level-backers, a tutorial session for a piece you are working on; my notes can either be sent to you privately or posted here for others to learn from.


Pledge nothing: Part of the Patreon feed will be available for everyone. If you like it, consider tossing in a buck to see more!

Pledge $1 per month: Complete access to the patrons-only feed: you'll see special artwork like comics-in-progress (thumbnails, sketches, etc.), news on upcoming convention appearances, and previews of new projects and book collections.

Pledge $5 per month: Complete access to the patrons-only feed, plus an exclusive bonus print with any order from the Scapula Store or my Etsy store (or have this print sent to you for only the cost of S&H).

Pledge $10 per month - Join the Halloween Gang: See yourself caricatured as a member of Scapula’s punk soldiers!

[caricature is drawn after one month of pledge]

Pledge $15 per month - Join Dadaman’s Not-a-Real Art School: Get a personal critique for an art/comic piece you are working on; you will receive my write-up (notes and/or sketches), either privately or posted in the Patreon-feed for other artists to learn from.
