I am a 44 yr. old "aspiring" cartoonist. I've been drawing since around the age of eight. My first exposure to comics were Archies and Marvel westerns, and then I encountered superheroes...but not the ones you might think. My first taste of superhero comics were the Archie heroes like the Fly, The Shield, and those characters. My early artistic influences were Gil Kane, George Perez and John Buscema. In the last few years I've gotten away from photo-realistic art in favor of cartoon-styles. Among my favorites are Stan Sakai, Sergio Aragones,Jeff Smith and a host of others. I have published my own mini comics in the small press network since 1994, and it served as a wonderful place for networking and feedback. This being my inaugural attempt at webcomics, I hope to find this network just as friendly and supportive.
