Here's an image I designed as a promo poster to garner financial interest from investors for the client's potential feature film. You can view the movie trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swEcrFa3l1I , though none of the footage is from the actual, yet-to-be filmed...film. It will be shot entirely on 16mm to give it the authentic 1970s feel. The way I got this job is full of hard-to-believe, preposterous synchronicity, and if you write me or ask me, I'll tell you the circumstances. It's pretty long-winded, so... Well, anyway, click on the image for a super-sized version.

Another character from my upcoming graphic novel, THE YESTERDAY AFTER ALL THIS TIME. Le Zombi is a Haitian freedom fighter combating the US Marines when Haiti was occupied from 1915-1934.

Another page from my upcoming opus: THE YESTERDAY AFTER ALL THIS TIME. The story itself is based on Chretien de Troyes' 12th century poem PERCEVAL, and many other versions of the Perceval myth (Peredur, Parzival, etc.).

I wrote and drew this story back in 2007 as an unsolicited submission when I had just quit my day job and was going to do another push at breaking into the comics industry. One of these days, when I finish my own graphic novel, I'd like to ink and color this. A lot would stay uninked, though, due to the tonal quality of the pencils.

NATURE BOY (complete)

This story is part of a larger work I've been working on for years, but since it's self-contained enough I've including it in a comics anthology called Cellar Door: Ancient that will be out later this year. I've always wanted to do a comic in the EC style, so this was a good way to do it.

It's based on the 6th century Arabic Infancy Gospel, an apocryphal infancy gospel of Jesus written to describe Jesus' miracles before he was twelve. The Arabic Infancy Gospel was itself based on the 2nd century Infancy Gospel of Thomas and the Protevangelion of James. (The more famous Gospel of Thomas discovered at Nag Hammadi in 1945 is a completely different work.)

This is a fake ad that will be in my upcoming and as-yet-untitled graphic novel. Some of it will make more sense in context with the story.
