1. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I'm a longtime comics fan, and have done a lot of work in the industry. I've inked a number of books for Marvel, DC, Image and IDW. My last job was inking Phil Hester on Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters. Lately, I've been getting a lot of commissions to re-create classic comic covers. If you search my name on CAF, you'll spot a lot of 'em! I'm currently about to finish up work on a graphic novel, The Falling Man.

2. Which piece in your gallery is your favorite?

It's hard to pick a favorite gallery piece, but I'd probably have to go with my Wally Wood art from Astonishing Tales #4, page 3. It's a favorite from childhood, and I think it has all the best Wood elements in one piece: great characters, space, and tech. Also, it's just beautifully drawn page, all around.

3. How long have you been collecting comic art and what prompted you to start?

I've spent the last five years or so trying to speed up my collecting. At some point, I realized that prices were just going through the roof. I knew that I needed to hurry up if I hoped to acquire art from favorites like Jack Kirby, Wally Wood, Steve Ditko, Bernie Wrightson, et al. Luckily, I've been able to get at least one or two from most of my grail guys. I'm also trying to slowly upload my own art as time allows!

4. How do you display/store your collection at home?

I keep most of my art in Itoya flip portfolios. My wife keeps encouraging me to frame some of them, but I prefer to have them readily accessible. Aside from just enjoying them, I try to use them as learning tools for my own work.

5. What are your top five most wanted original pages or commissions?

My top 5 most-wanteds would be work by Barry Windsor-Smith, Frank Frazetta, Masamune Shirow, a Gene Colan/Tom Palmer Daredevil page. and a Jeffrey Catherine Jones IDYL page. I'm pretty mercurial, so those could all change tomorrow!
