Q. Character that you want to draw that you haven’t drawn yet?

A. Polka Dot Man!!

Q. What artist inspires you the most and why?

A. I’m heavily influenced by the structure Jim Lee uses mixed with Todd McFarlane’s Detail. Sprinkle a little Roy Lichtenstein composition in there.

Q. What was your first published work?

A. My first published work was Zine called PhatLip .It was a gritty fine art based zine mixed with short story’s Very Rare . Maybe 100 or less printed. I drew a friend on a skateboard grinding on a rail and I used notebook and construction paper mixed with some comic books cover collage .

A. I’m excited to collab with my boy Steve King. We’re doing a Turtles 40th anniversary piece.
