I love comics, cartoons, and humor. I am all for subversive uses of comics and I welcome any opportunity to use my skills as a writer and illustrator to bring the medium of comics to any size audience. I have taught at the college level in studio arts and am currently making a living freelancing comic work and teaching all age groups....check out my website and resume on my profile.
