About the Author
has been drawing ever since high school. Originally influenced by the superhero comics of the early- to mid-1990s, his style has adapted towards his other favorite genre: manga. Learning and studying techniques from both the East and West, he’s constantly striving to create a style that can truly be called his own.
In recent years, he has taken that love and desire for comics onto the Internet with two webcomics: Place Name Here
and Chibi Cheerleaders From Outer Space,
which he works on with his wife, Stacey. His webcomic work led him to Ten Ton Studios, where he worked on a story for their book, Anthologica
, and eventually became a member of the group.
