Guest Comic


Hey Sam & Fuzzy readers! I was invited to draw a guest comic as part of "The Pitch" a 9 page comic where the  Sam & Fuzzy cast explores different "reboot ideas" for their strip. Written by Shannon Campbell and drawn by a bunch of super cool web cartoonists (with the comic's creator Sam Logan drawing the framing art of each guest strip.)

Check out my sparkly contribution here! (it's the chapter finale)

Happy 10 year Anniversary Flight Comics!

(From left to right: Jen Wang, Kazu Kibuishi, Jason Caffoe, me, Stu Livingston, Shaggy Shanahan, Johane Matte, Bannister, Dik Pose)

After San Diego Comic Con (which was a super fun time, by the by) my little Canadian troupe continued up north for more California adventures, one of which was a Flight Anthology party at Gallery Nucleus. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Flight, and I'm blessed to know all these wonderfully talented people (and have met so many beloved pals) thanks to being a part of the Flight family

New portfolio site!



I've put together a more easy to navigate online portfolio just in time for San Diego Comic Con. It's mostly a collection of a lot of drawings you guys have already seen but it also has samples from comics I haven't published yet online (Flight,  Explorer and sample pages from Silly Kingdom #2) if you were curious to take a peek! :)




My piece for the "Monstrosity" volume 2 space-horror comic anthology.
The 11x14" original is up for grabs as a kickstarter backer reward, check it out here!

Vancaf this weekend!



Hey Vancouver! My brother Shaggy and I’ll be running around you THIS WEEKEND for the VANCAF comic festival. It’s an amazing show and totally free and we hope to see you there! :)
We’ve also been invited to join in on Lucy Bellwood’s panel on Comic Communities Saturday at 11am. Here’s an overview:
Drawing People Together: Comic Communities
Hosted by Lucy Bellwood
Featuring Ed Brisson, Jeff Ellis, Katie Shanahan, Steven Shanahan
 It can be hard making your way in comics, and nothing can be more valuable to a professional than the constant inspiration, energy, and networking that a community can provide. Come join comic leaders Lucy Bellwood, Ed Brisson, Jeff Ellis, and the Shanahan siblings as they discuss ways to connect with your peers and the benefit that comic communities can bring—both professionally and personally.

Last night I went to the gallery opening of “Black, White and Read All Over” showcasing Canadian comic makers in connection with TCAF. And it is fantastic!

Put together by a group of talented UofT students and curated by Lee Petrie, the show runs until September and can be seen at Pearson Airport terminal 1 (Canadian Arrivals). So for you folk flying in for TCAF, GO CHECK IT OUT!!!
