I’ve been drawing cartoons ever since I was a little kid, and still love it to this day. I drew comics and illustrations for my high school and college newspapers, and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in art from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2003. Since then I’ve been fortunate enough to do comics and illustrations for clients such as MAD Magazine, SpongeBob Comics, Boom! Studios, HarperCollins and more. I currently live and work in Texas with my wife and two sons.

Here are some interviews I did over at Strange Kid’s Club and at the blog David Wasting Paper where I discuss my work and what the heck is wrong with me.
