Now available: Microdose #1
A new comics zine of single-page stories in a variety of styles and tones. Get a copy from me in person, order online, or ask your local comic shop or zine distro to order it.
I’m a writer, artist and designer who lives in beautiful Halifax, Nova Scotia. I work from home as a technical writer by day and pursue a variety of creative projects the rest of the time. My wife Nicole recently completed a PhD in medieval lit. My son Jack (after Kirby) is in high school. We all love cats.
I have an irrational affection for Belgian things: steak-frites, comics, the Atomium, certain beers, waffles, Jean-Claude Van Damme… not mussels though. And I guess I’m really just lukewarm about Van Damme if pressed on the subject.
In my spare time I enjoy reading and making comics, movies, theatre, running, music, and surfing. I am a Buddhist, with a casual but committed zen practice.
I usually have some time for commissions and freelance work in illustration or design, including storyboarding. If you want to talk to me about a job, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for samples and rates.
There are a few ways you can buy my stuff:
1) directly from me. Click here to go to a special page with a list of what I have in my inventory and what it will cost you, including shipping. This is a good option if you want something signed, or to order a commission, if you want to buy in bulk, or if you are a retailer or library.
2) order books through your local independent bookstore (tell them they can find ISBN numbers at the Amazon links below); you can also order gallery-quality prints from my Inprnt shop.
3) Click the relevant author page below if you live in an area where it makes more sense to order books from Amazon or if you want a Kindle edition:
- Amazon.ca does not do author pages for some reason, so here are direct links to the paperbacks of Young, Dumb, and Full of Comics; The Insult; An Otherworld; and Timing is Everything
Whatever you choose, thanks for your interest!
