    Comic Book Artist (published)/cover art

    Hi guys, I am the creator and artist on IDW's Best Selling Graphic Novel "CODE WORD: GERONIMO", ranked #22 on Diamond Comic's list (Sep, 2011), only one month after its release.

    I've been a professional illustrator, artist and an award winning graphic designer since 1987. In 2009, thanks to some coaxing from my buddy Tom Waltz; senior writer at IDW, I left the design and commercial art world behind and went back to my greatest love; comic books.

    Though I am always busy doing something, I am also always up for a new commission, and love hearing from indie comic creators in need of a good artist. I started a comic production company, Hazmat Studios, with fellow artist Amin Amat (Buckaroo Banzai, Kochak: The Night Stalker) and writers Matt Anderson and Eric Hutchins (Kung Fu Panda, White Picket Fences), to help indie comic creators get their comics done at a reasonable price. Creators are always worried that they will get screwed when they hire an artist. They are always worried if the book will get done, or will the artist disappear half way through the project. Why? Because, honestly, a lot of artists, especially when they are new, flake out because they are too busy working their day job that actually pays their bills, or the project was harder pr more demanding than they expected. With me or with my team, you won't get that. Doing comic art is ALL I do...it IS my day job. We are all veteran artists and writers, with a strong reputation in the industry that we take a lot of pride in.
