Here I am, drawing pictures and telling stories. I’ve found a sweet spot using adventurous satire and allegory for editorial illustration while I explore the art of storytelling in book illustration, jacket art, comics and a variety of odd personal work that is dear to my heart.
I live and work in the countryside just outside Richmond, Virginia finding inspiration in my wonderful wife, two kids and the Civil War memorial battlefields that surround us.

manifesto
The world we live in is full of beauty and full of potential.
And it is full of brokenness.

Our social media feeds and news outlets forbid us from denying the turmoil.

However—it has been this way for quite some time. Experts will tell you shootings and wars and earthquakes have been happening for a long time. It is not getting worse as some might portray it.

In fact, quite the opposite.
There are movements in the undertow making our world better.

There are rich stories of redemption amidst the chaos and suffering. Love is cloaked but not lost among the monsters of our world. The might of nature demands both terror and awe. There is an elegance to the cosmos and its tension with havoc. When we pan out far enough, we see that we are moving forward and towards wholeness. In spite of itself, tragedy ultimately makes way for hope and love.

There is hope because of tragedy.

And I will show it to you.
