Artist's Statement: In my comic, cartoon, and illustration work, my aim is not only to entertain but to comment on life itself. I work in ink, ink wash, watercolor, gouache, scratchboard, and digital media — each chosen to best tell the tale. From the graceful shapes of the animal kingdom to the squalor and confusion of the modern cityscape, my work embraces what it means to be an organism. Humor and horror, joy and rage strike a dynamic, often uneasy balance. Through narrative, be it in sequential art or the single panel, the distant is brought close, and the abstract rendered concrete.
