About


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
He's the World's Worst Villain....the 'worst' in every way! 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 creeps, 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 over a decade 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.

Less than two years later we were able to succeed again with Scapula: Doubly Dark & Deadly! More stories are in the works, and you'll see the progress as it goes!


Starting in 2020 I'm releasing the first Patreon-exclusive Scapula story, titled Scapula's Weird Pulpy Thing! See new chapters every Sunday when you back at any level (because everyone deserves quality garbage reading).


DADA HYENA presents Christie! 

Christie McGoff was the star of my first webcomic, Dada Hyena; she’s returned in a new run of comics made exclusively for my Patreon backers! The new series focuses on the misadventures of the cheery, cheeky, gothy girl and whatever strange things come her way.

(For those of you wondering why this Patreon page has been labeled for mature readers only, it's because of a patron-exclusive story ‘Too Old to Care‘, which had the dubious honor of getting this page permanently slapped with an “18+” warning. C'est la vie.)
For those of you who can handle a little cheesecake and a LOT of surrealism, humor, and weirdness, your friend Christie is waiting for you to join her in the fun!



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. Starting in 2020 the Creature Show now continues in a series of drawing videos hosted by the artist himself!


Dada Hyena's
 Creature Show patrons can vote on which characters they want to see in the next upcoming video!


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!

Vote for your Monsters!
Before every new Dada Hyena's Creature Show video patrons will be able to vote from a list of options for which character I'll draw and discuss, or even suggest one of their own.

Figure Drawings
Again, for you visitors wondering why this Patreon page is labeled 18+ it's because of the evil sin of drawing the human body; I think it goes without saying these are all artfully done and not lewd in the least, but this site wants you to be unoffended so that's how it goes. All figure drawings are locked patron-exclusive posts. 

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.
