A Charles Addams-style cartoon of a weary space traveler who unknowingly arrives at…The Wrong Planet! Wrong Planet was a single-page comic I did for a graphic novel class I took while attending VCU. I came across my rough pencils for this when I was organizing my art drawer a few weeks ago and thought it would […]
Recently, I was going through a drawer of old artwork when I happened across this four-page comic I did while taking a graphic novel class at VCU. We were told to create a super-villain with a defined set of powers/abilities. Once that was done, we were put into groups and had to come up with […]
Kid Hercules was a personal project I started years ago that I’m finally getting back around to. Since then, I’ve made several refinements to how I draw the main characters, in addition to expanding the story to an epic, multi-part series.

San Francisco’s Common Ground magazine is leading up to its 40th anniversary with an issue devoted to the importance of humor. Editor Rob Sidon, who knew me from my days doing comics and short animations for a meditation center in India, called me up to ask if I had anything on hand. Alas, I had […]
I’m proud to announce a new project I’m undertaking called Kid Hercules 365. It’s basically just another 365 challenge where I draw a new Kid Hercules illustration every day for one year. I’m doing this as a way to help me develop my characters for a graphic novel that’s been brewing in my brain for […]

Here’s a little something for Halloween. I actually did this for HappyReading.org, but I thought it was a good fit for a Happy Halloween image.
