Subjectives

NEW COMIC!
Subjective is a collection of the 'comic poems' I co-created with Matthew Bernard. It contains work initially featured as part of Emanata 1–4. The fifth and final piece is a new exclusive comic poem created specifically for this collection. Each poem is inspired by a theme and muses on a philosophical aspect of life.

Zombie Zine

As the creator of The Working Stiff, I draw a lot of zombies doing very unzombie-like things. So every year, when #Inktober rolls around it only makes sense that I draw more zombies doing more unzombie-like things. After the last couple years, I have build up a modest collection of comics, illustrations and character designs based on the official inktober prompt list. Presented here are the best pieces from that collection in no particular order.
