Who is the artist you fashioned yourself after once you made the decision to do comics for a living? And what was your first steps in following that path? :)

Well, it comes down to three artists ultimately. Dave Stevens, Steve rude and Brian Bolland. those were the guys whose work I gdevoured back in the 80's. I also liked Jose Luis Garcia Lopez, John Byne, Jerry Ordway, Chris Warner and Don Newton. As far as my first steps? Well I was lucky enough to attend a High School that not only focused on art but had a comics program, I also was able to become an intern at DC Comics when I was in my junior year for six months so that help me get to know a few editors.

Ask me anything
