I published the short story, A Clear Solution, in 2012. It was my second attempt at using wash for gray tones, and later, as I looked at the art, I found that some of it looked overworked and a bit awkward. It really irritated me, because of all the short comics I had made, this was the one that had the writing I was most happy with. So awhile ago, I took a break from Salvage and revised the artwork from start to finish. If you've already read it, take another look, and if you haven't, take my word for it—the art is much better now.



Salvage, my graphic novel about science and superstition, sex toys and scavengers is approaching completion. With only one more chapter to go, I hope to have the entire story up by the end of 2018. If this whets your appetite, be sure to check out Split, my other graphic novel, and my page of short comics.
