I grew up on a ranch in southern Saskatchewan (Canada) and have lived there for my first 17 years of life. Attending school, I got hooked on some comic books my friends have and since then I haven't been able to stop drawing. Personally, I prefer the pencil and ink work that most comic book artists use, but I have recently got hooked on the effects that Paintshop Pro can do. As for influences, Todd McFarlane, Jim Lee, Marc Silvestri, and the list goes on and on, all seem to hold a place in my art. Currently, I'm really hooked on Frank Miller (especially on the DARK KNIGHT RETURNS). Now I am 19 and attending Medicine Hat College in Alberta, enrolled in the Visual Communications program. I'm also trying to start a comic book company on the net. Go to my homepage for more info.
