RAFE THE SWORDSMAN: “ON THE ROAD”
This was an experiment in heavily-detailed backgrounds, action, and working entirely in pens, something I don’t really do. I really enjoyed doing it.
A LONELY WALK
A one-pager I did that’s basically a hyper-condensed version of a longform comic I was writing and drawing at one point that got put on the back burner.
Max Vs Max GUEST STRIP
Max Vs Max was a strip by one of my favorite cartoonists, Wes Molebash. The creator of You’ll Have That, he’s a fellow Ohioan and one of my comic/webcomic heroes. Getting a chance to contribute a guest comic to his strip was a personal artistic highlight for me.
Agent Of Darwin GUEST STRIP
I was very excited to get a chance to write some irreverent black humor for this webcomic. It’s allowed me to crack wise regarding some of my favorite side interests, mainly science.
Team Cul De Sac
This was the most fun project I’ve ever contributed to of all time. Interpretations of Richard Thompson’s Cul De Sac contributed for an auction and art book are raising money and awareness for Parkinson’s research. It’s an awesome cause with a lot of other incredibly talented and amazing contributors, make sure you check it out.
The Hard Life
An attempt by me to do something noir-influenced, which I’ve always wanted to try and do. I’m pretty excited with how this little one-page thing came out.
Meant to be part of an anthology for someone that never got accepted, I decided to turn it into something for me. In the end I think that with the lots of background crosshatching it required, it wasn’t quite something ready for print publication. I still think it’s pretty funny though, enjoyed putting it together.
A jokey sci-fi comic I created as a lark on some printer paper, it’s influenced a lot by the cyberpunk manga I was heavily into at one point, as well as B&W-style noir. I don’t know why it’s called “Prologue,” to be honest.
