CCS celebrates Artistic excellence
by exploring and encouraging
the crisscrossing of various Creative Disciplines

Artist's Statement --
am an Artist, Illustrator, Cartoonist, Graphic
Novelist, Scribe and Teacher,
and, in the words of Marc Chagall,
"I work in whatever medium likes me at the moment."
[From the Art Brush]
I am greatly inspired by Pop Art, the Superhero
Culture, Comic Book Art, Movies and Spirituality,
and have a near-unhealthy obsession with the use
of bright colours.
My Painting Process combines variations of Oil,
Acrylic, Ink and Encaustic,
while my Technique enthusiastically incorporates
the element of chance,
allowing selected mediums to bring their own uniqueness
to the piece.
My artwork is fuelled by the Geek Sub-Culture:
thousands like me who draw their
strength and inspiration from fictional heroes
by embracing their passion for
Superheroes, Epic Adventures, Fantasy and Wonder.
It is about man's ability to imagine and believe
and also his ability to draw strength from this
It is about becoming something greater by believing
in something greater.

ToonSchool, my monthly Cartoon Sessions for Teenagers
is dedicated to the teaching of hand-drawn Cartoons
