Graphic Novel Pitches

These are my current graphic novel pitches. Chronosaurus Rex and Terminal are looking for agent representation and a home with a publisher. Warlock’d is my personal webcomic project for honing my craft.

Digital artwork mockup of a potential cover for a middlegrade graphic novel pitch called 'Chronosaurus Rex. The cover depicts the title behind a skeleton of T. rex stomping over the earth. The T. rex is accompanied by a dunkleosteus, macrauchenia, brachiosaurus, a pterosaur, sharovipteryx, archaeopteryx, dimetrodon, a small chrononaut in a spacesuit, a diplocaulus, and a horseshoe crab.

Sequential Art

These are samples of the work I can do with comic layouts, lettering, interior art, lineart, flatting, and coloring. I’m up for working on any middle grade or young adult graphic novel project. I love historical themes, monsters, demons, dinosaurs, and imaginative infographics.

Digital art of an otherworldly fish tail with the word 'AMPHIOX' written on it in white serif letters.

Amphiox is a complete, 48-page graphic novel short story and webcomic. It’s about magic doom eels. I started this piece in a fit of self-indulgence during August of 2022, and completed it in the early parts of 2023. It is a webcomic that features a preorder campaign to fund the 1st edition print order.

These are selected pages from various works-in-progress, to show, in no particular order: How I handle layouts both mundane and spectacular, condensed storytelling, slice-of-life journal comics, rendering of backgrounds and settings, and lettering.
