These are from a failed pitch for a kid's history magazine. Two examples of a one page comic following a theme for each magazine. Hand drawn. Computer coloured, like most of my work.

This is a classic piece. Is it possible to see it in a bigger size some place. I never thought I'll see all my favourite heroes in one frame. Amazing work. Please count me in as your biggest fan from right away.
Caanan Grall - Over 30 days ago
Thanks Suranjan! Unfortunately, no. I tend to upload only really low-res small images to the net. It helps to stop people from pilfering my work. ;) The version at my deviantart profile (caanantheartboy) might be a little bigger, but not much.

One of my favourite gags/pages from my graphic novel, Celadore. This page shows what happens when a teenage girl wishes for world peace and it only lasts a few seconds.

An example of my webcomic, Max Overacts, which is done solely by me. This is one of the big double strips, a school play about the history of commercialisation at Christmas.

About Me:
Eisner-nominated creator of the webcomic, Max Overacts. A fun strip about a boy who wants to be the greatest actor in the world, aimed at 9 - 12 year olds, but read mainly by adults.

First graphic novel, Celadore, was published by DC Comics under their Zuda imprint. A 180 page epic involving fairies, frankensteins and family values.

Have worked in the past for Cambridge Press and Oxford Press in Australia, ziptales.com - an online story resource for schools, and as a full time storyboard artist for the Buchanan Group.

Latest jobs have included a concept map for the City of Calgary and an issue of Real Science Adventures for Red 5 Comics, as well as keeping Max Overacts going on a weekly basis at occasionalcomics.com
