Interests
I used to be a professional inker, and sometime artist, having done work for Marvel, DC et al. I became distanced from the industry once I moved down here from NY to SC, just kind of lost touch with everything. But there was another issue that pushed me away from drawing, something most of my peers have not been aware of until right now.

I have suffered from Fibromyalgia for years now, although only finally diagnosed about a year and a half ago, I have lived in chronic moderate to severe pain for almost 15 years. Although the pain afflicts my entire body, in particular it is the pain in my hands and lower arms that led me all but put down a pencil for good several years ago. It was a struggle to get the lines I wanted out of my pencil I felt I could never achieve the style I wanted out of my artwork.

It is only over the last few weeks that I have picked up a pencil and started to sketch every single day again. I'm still knocking the rust off so to speak, but I have a bright outlook. I'm not fighting what comes naturally any more. My style will be whatever it will be, whatever my head and my hands allow me to do as long as it's fun and brings me enjoyment.

The majority of this entry is an excerpt written as a thank you to the very talented Dana Black...he has been an inspiration to me.  You should check out his work here: danablackarts.deviantart.com/g…

You were kind enough to sign a run of your first G.I. Joes at the 30th Anniversary Celebration aboard the USS INTREPID many years ago: August, 1994! We kind of bribed you with MIB Joe vehicles, I recall, and my three older sons never forgot that.
Just found them again and am hoping one of my sons maintains the Joe collection so I can give them to him one day.
I suffer from Gulf War Syndrome.
It is a battle every day that I have been treating with exercise, diet, supplements (SOURCE OF LIFE by Nature's Plus) and of course the love of my dear wife and especially the Love of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
