I and You!

My first graphic novel (written by Beverly Garside illustrated by me) is available now on amazon...

Synopsis: "It is the year 2098. Sara Storm has just come of age in a republic founded upon the objectivist principles of Ayn Rand - selfishness, minimal government, and laissez faire capitalism. It is a society in which the collectivist pronoun "we" has been replaced with the ideologically correct "I and you." A true believer in the ideals of her nation, Sara launches her military career with zeal and great dreams for her future. But the world outside the classroom fails to live up to the one she has been taught to expect. Real people fail to behave like the heroes in Rand's books or in the science fiction stories she loves. She notices cracks deepening in the nation that bills itself as the beacon for all mankind. Winds of change start to howl through the "skyscraper society" of her republic and strange sounds begin to emanate from the Earth itself. Suddenly her world, her career, and her own dreams no longer fit into the narrow confines of Rand's ideology. Neither does love."

First Graphic Novel "I and You"


For the past year I have been working on illustrating a 200 page graphic novel for writer, Beverly Garside. The project is nearing it's completion and should be finished end of February or early March.

Story Synopsis:
It is the year 2098.  Sara Storm has just come of age in a republic founded upon the objectivist principles of Ayn Rand - selfishness, minimal government, and laissez faire capitalism, where the pronoun "we" has been replaced with the ideologically correct "I and you."  A true believer in the ideals of her nation, Sara launches her military career full of zeal and great dreams for her future. But the world outside the classroom fails to live up the one she has been taught to expect. Real people fail to behave like the heroes in Rand's books, or in the science fiction novels she loves.  She notices cracks deepening in the nation that bills itself as a beacon of light for all mankind.  Winds of change start to howl through the "skyscraper society" of her republic,  and  strange sounds start emanating from the Earth itself.  Suddenly her world, her career, and her own dreams no longer fit into the narrow confines of Rand's ideology.  Neither does love.



Here are some of the finished pages:

The Doorman 1&2 (plus a freebie!)

Smoking Monkey Comics presents it preeminent hit series, The Doorman. Jim Barrett, a potentially delusional young man, is persuaded by a playfully devilish monkey, who can only be seen by Jim, into believing that he is “The Savior of The Universe” and into becoming a super hero. In the process Jim will face down the Creator of All That Is, a being of divine nature, God. Everyone around Jim thinks he's crazy, but what if the monkey is telling the truth? His potential insanity will lead him into adventures that are entertaining for us but disastrous for him.

"Souls For Sale" and "Gods and Cattle"


Upcoming anthology piece entitled "Souls For Sale" from the anthology "Gods and Cattle"


Eternity Sales Inc. Workplace to the Gods. An office where deities and devils alike ply their trade, sell their religion to the unaware cattle that is humankind. The hook? Promise of eternal bliss after death or fame and fortune for their remaining years. The price? Their soul. With faith for the Gods waning planet wide, Yarweh has hired a TV crew to document the daily dealings of the office hard at work. This not only gives Eternity Sales Inc. invaluable exposure in a faithless world, but also gives a unique opportunity to follow Yarweh, the escapades of his sons Lucifer and Jesus and the reactions of work colleagues including Buddha, Krishna, Ganesh, Durga, Lilith and the ancient Babylonian God Marduk.

1st concept work:
