Q. What artist inspires you the most and why?

A. As a kid, Jim Lee was hands down the guy who I had on the pedestal as the greatest comic book artist of all time. I still have him as my personal favorite, but I do admire the work of Frank Cho, Frank Miller, Barry Windsor Smith, Paolo Serpieri, and Frank Quitely, among many others.

Q. What was your first published work?

A. Honestly, I can’t recall, but I’ve done several different things. I’ve done novel covers, comic book covers, trading card designs, and collectible car designs…. there’s a lot to name but little recollection of what the first one was!

A. Jim Lee. I love a challenge!
