Welcome to my gallery.

Explore the slide shows, Comics Art and Non Comics Art, below for various commissions, projects, sketches and doodles I’ve done over the years.

My crosshatching technique grew out of necessity more than a conscious decision to draw hundreds of little lines. It was a lack of crayons! When I was in grade two or three, a kind babysitter showed me that I could substitute grey values for different colour values.

One set of parallel lines to depict the lightest shade blends to two, three and more crosshatched lines for the darker, shadowed areas.

I use a transparent water colour wash to add a layer of colour on top of the existing grey values.

If you see anything that inspires an idea for a commission of your own,
check out my Commissions page.

I welcome all suggestions and appreciate your comments.
Enjoy!
