Said "I'm working on a coloring book of mine and my kids designs. They come up with some of the most imaginative stuff. I hope to print a few this year. I'm also working on several comic titles and some humorous short stories. It's a lot of work but it's relaxing too, just to create and go wild with my thoughts on what will happen next."

This was an art assignment for my Perspective class at the Art Institute. The imagery is from ideas I have for one of my stories in 'The Fellowship'. This spacecraft belongs to Lord Descencion, a world conqueror for his empire.

About Me:
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.
