Hello friends,

Hard to believe, but the holidays are just 4 months away! Don't panic if you haven't finished your gift shopping yet. Why not give the gift of art? There is a pledge for every level. 


Want something truly unique for the office swap? A $25 pledge will get you either the ANCIENT ONE APPROVES or the BLACK DEVILS RECRUITMENT PACKAGE. These packages include a printed and signed copy of this thrilling tale and also a print of Ana-Zaha, the Ancient One or a Black Devil in full uniform suitable for framing. 

Need something for that someone who has everything? A $100 pledge for the INK PACKAGE will get you printed and signed copies of the regular and limited editions of the Black Devils' exploits. But it will also get you a specially created tattoo design! Why choose some generic Chinese characters off the tattoo studio wall when you can a design with meaning? 

Frankincense and Myrrh? Bah! Humbug! A $500 pledge will get your special someone the ARCHIVIST PACKAGE and an original painting from my collected works. I work mostly in acrylic and there are some truly twisted pieces available like Dracula's Last Supper, the Emerald City, or if you are so inclined, some smaller pieces with monkeys dressed as knights. Check out my work here. This package includes shipping.

Fancy yourself a patron of the arts? Consider commissioning a piece to hang over your fireplace or, perhaps… your boudoir. A $1,000 pledge will get you the COMMISSION PACKAGE. Yes, of course you will get a special thank you in issue #1 and copies of this most excellent comic book, but I will also draw you dressed as Napoleon on horseback… or your pets fighting zombies on the moon… or anything your mind can imagine. Think it can’t be done? Try me….

Have any questions? Message me through my Facebook page.

Ho, ho, ho!

    THE INK PACKAGE My first paying gig as an artist was in New Orleans, tattooing in the back of a barber shop. This package includes printed and signed copies of the regular and limited edition issues mailed to you, PLUS I will create a tattoo design of your choosing. While you certainly may choose a design of Ana-Zaha, the Ancient One (the flaming skeleton lady on the left), I have done other designs as well-- the only limit is your imagination. Imagine the Commission Package, but instead of being on your wall, it will be on your body.
