I've been drawing all my life and am basically self taught. I've worked on comics and children's books with 4 people in the past 20 years. I'm working on a coloring book with my children's ideas right now and my own comic character stories too. Two super hero stories and one young adult book based on my son titled Firefighter Kyle and his Dalmatian Rabbit. I was a firefighter for 15 years in Warren, Ohio so I want to teach fire safety in a entertaining way. Check out some of my art on my Facebook page in the photo section.
