Greeting's Everyone!
I hope and trust you will enjoy viewing my DA site and look forward to making lots and lots of new friends in the "u-DA-verse".

I frustratingly attempt to create art in between mind-numbingly boring hours spent at my daytime job at HONDA of Canada.

Most of my gallery should be composed of comic pages and character designs from my "comic book in progress"...THE VESSEL.

THE VESSEL is a modern retelling of the Christian Gospels in a SCI-Fi setting.
It is very much influenced by Disney's Treasure Planet (a modern retelling of Robert Louis Stephenson's Treasure Island)

I believe that this lost and dying world is very much in need of the message of salvation; found only through the Good News that Jesus Christ died and rose again victorious over sin and death to reconcile sinful man to HOLY GOD. I also believe that this message can be presented in a new and powerful way.  

I know that God had called me to use the artistic gifts He has bestowed for His glory and His honour and I hope that you will be as blessed to received my offerings as I was to create them.

great stuff Jon!!  terrific blend of Paul Pope and a guy named Mike McMahon and his "Last American" work for Marvel...check it out you might be surprised.  And Moebius' blueberry is a clear influence as well.  Keep up the great work!

you are very good; Wrightson was etched in my core from childhood. I should probably work on making my art my own if those influences are so prominent

Not prominent in a bad way Gary...you've done a great job of blending those influences into your own emerging style.  Wrightson was influened by Frazetta as Frazetta was influenced by Zdenek Burian.  One big creative cycle...keep doin' whatchya do bro!
