The passion I have for illustration and comics stems from childhood and an obsession with storytelling. Refinement of drawing and digital media skills in my young adult years has lead to successful professional work. I continue this practice with as much joy and enthusiasm as my eight-year-old self.

    What’s up Tim! I just copped your book LUNCH at Legends today..Very weird and funny..you’ve got a very cool and unique style. Great stuff. I was also impressed with the format of your book. I like the size and paper quality..looks very professional and clean.. I’m trying to self publish a comic of my own by May of this year. I was wondering if you can suggest a good printer..I’ve narrowed it down to Comixpress online..but I’d really like to get this done locally..any suggestions? Holla.

      Thanks Sean! You’re too kind! If you go with an online printer like Comixpress it’s usually cheaper. However, local printing has its advantages like choosing a size and paper quality. Also, you don’t have to worry about shipping hassles. I have had a couple of books printed at Publication Printing, which is in Waterloo, NE. You could also try Copy Cat too. Good luck!

      I have gone to that a couple of times. It’s fun, but I don’t usually have a free saturday to attend. Hopefully I can go sometime soon!

    You did a comic/sketch of my husband back in 2011 as a gift and he LOVES it, it gets compliments whenever people are over. We also had you do one for some friends and their family as “The Fantastic 5” and it’s very nicely framed on their wall 🙂
