Broken Pencil, Sketchbooks, #TBT, Art done, & Art for sale!
I’ve been pretty active on the new Spilt Ink blog, and generally trying to be regular about updating. The old home site is overdue for a catch-up though!
First I want to remind everyone, I have a lot of art up for sale, and take requests as well.
Generally always interested in selling it but right now it would be especially helpful, so check it out and if you order something, I’ll throw in a copy of my comic Revolver vol 3 with a sketch and thank you! In most instances shipping is included in the price, for sure in the US, EU and Canada.
Also, if you don’t have ALL my books already, why not?! You can order them here from Spilt Ink!
Speaking of my books…

It’s a stellar graphic novel…”

As a way to partake in Throwback Thursdays and promote my fathers work, i’ve started posting weekly new photos of his. Right now it’s a series of shots from the The Toronto Pop Festival! The first two posts feature shots of Chuck Berry, Sly & the Family Stone, Tiny Tim, Ronny Hawkins, and a 17-year-old Jeanne Beker!
