Cathedrals - read online or purchase


MAY 2010.
a dream horror comic that deals with inverted cathedrals floating in space, absurd walls, and the terror of the sublime. The physical copy was a massive 11 x 15 inches.



faust us

FEB 2009. This is a comic about post apocalyptic piano burnings. 22 pages. Here is a preview. If you would like a physical copy, you can purchase one at The Beguiling in Toronto. I also do trades.


Infinity Flesh


OCTOBER 2008. A dispute between mother and her daughter. The radiator is humming. Drawn in 5 days for a Respark book.


Snuff Portals

JUNE 2008. Gore is a part-time Necromancer. Daffy, a werewolf, leaves snuff tapes around the city which induce mass face meltings. I was inspired by the William Burroughs cut-up technique.


HEXTAPE
DEC 2007. A comic concerning the peculiarities of black metal. Some pages are animated. You also get to determine the outcome of the comic at one point, during a battle between two speeding locomotives.


Coffin Dose

Some dude and a purple ghost are caught in an endless web.


nox quarrelex

A fugitive guillotine executioner travels through a classical gameboy RPG world. Intentionally pixilated everything to resemble an old school Gameboy game. You know… the ones that your friends played at recess but you couldn’t see anything even if you were sitting right beside them.


Phantom Limb

Ghosts are amputating the citizens of Mustache City. This was actually a final project for my Grade 12 Creative Writing class. I received an A+. This comic is very pretentious.


Skumface

Rival mutant gangs duke it out in a toxic junkyard. Inspired by Saturday morning cartoons, Super Nintendo video games, and ridiculously gory B-Movies.


The Bombing Method

THE BOMBING METHOD. Richard wakes up in a hospital, remembering nothing. His phone rings. The voice over the phone orders him to plant explosives around the city or his family will be killed. Printed in the Void Pulpo 2 anthology.


Magma City

The volcano near magma city is spewing volcanic kamikaze fire demons to wipe everything out. One rad dude has the audacity to stop them. This was printed as a mini-comic with Galvo.


x-raystellusyouhavenospine

An experimental music video/comic about doctors and bones. Music by yours truly. Download the mp3.


Sunbern

Earth is a wasteland. The last vampires on earth battle the last zombies on earth. The prize? The last remaining human colony. Printed in Void Pulpo 1.


faHreNhEit

Blitz, a member of the resistance, and his mecha-raptor fight an evil tyrant on an ice continent.


banana bust zip file

Circa 2002. A baseball-weilding monkey must save all of the bananas on his island. Contains some memorable one-liners. I was some kind of a retarded genius.
