The term ‘Gatekeepers’ came up in conversation after that tweet, and it was used as a negative. While I’m sure there are people actively trying to keep others out of every industry without a valid reason, in my experience this is not how things work. Producers, editors,Read More
Writing — The tools I use and love the most. For brainstorming just about everything, I prefer old school index cards and a large wooden table. Hit that table with a little furniture polish (I prefer lemon scent) and you can quickly slide cards around and pour your brain out onto…Read More
How do you break into comics? How do you land logo projects? How do you launch a creator-owned comic series? How do you get a job at an advertising agency? How do you get an agent or manager in Hollywood? How do you get work as a comic book cover artist? Let’s be honest, there’s…
Here’s a little trick I use when I’m writing. In fact, I JUST used it on a script earlier this morning so I decided to blog about it knowing some of you might find it useful. When I’m working on an outline or a script, I sometimes hit a tough spot where I just can’t work through…Read More

A shot of my sketch work for the CURT custom knives logo. From the start, the goal was to keep it clean and simple, to unify the logomark and the logotype as one unit, rather than having them exist as two separate pieces. Clean, simple, sharp.
