Awards and Valentines!

I am proud to announce I am part of the website for the Joe Shuster awards. My name is listed under "R" here:

Also I am under the links to Canadian Creators- Webcomics as well as mentioned on the list of 2009 submissions of the Gene Day Award which was just created for the first time in 2009. My book "Why I Hate Cheerleaders" was submitted by Darryl Spiers who runs the Toronto comic book Store Cyber City Comics. Needless to say I'm extremely excited! Things appear to be coming together quite nicely.

I also would like to display a fun little link for you all, it's a t-shirt I made for Tobey in the special edition Valentine's Day comic strip #63:

Speaking of Valentine's Day! I also made a few little Anti-Valentine's Day Cards from Tom Boy Tara, check 'em out:

2010 Is Gonna Be Good!

Hello all you wonderful people! This year has already been fun and quite creatively fulfilling! I recently joined a fabulous Canadian Artist community called The Broker found at:

It's great for artists who are trying to make a living off of their art and get out there. My comics and bio are being posted in the featured artist section called, "Spotlight". The wonderful thing about the community is that the founders of the site are extremely active with giving their creatives all the help they need to reach their full potential and help them out with finding a job they love, get the exposure they deserve all while attracting new and old potential clients online.

If you're an artist I highly recommend joining the site, if you aren't but have artist friends I say spread the word about it and make your artist friend happy allowing them to meet with like-minded people on the site as well as get out there and have fun doing a job they enjoy! It's a great creative outlet anyways.

So I've also got a new online portfolio at:

There you will find my wonderful caricatures I've been dabbling in as well as my other art. I've been trying to do caricatures because I may end up doing some for private parties. Should be a lot of fun!

Anyways, this is just some of my wonderful art news for the year thus far. I'm sure there will be lots more to come as I'm working hard at getting out there. Please don't hesitate to drop me a line if you like what I'm doing...and even if you don't. Ha ha ha!

Happy New Year!

This new Year of 2010 looks promising for TBT, I can feel it in my bones! I've already commenced the year with new comics and as promised I will be updating a comic once a week at least.

I have had a few art related projects asked of me this new year already and I hope the projects keep on coming. I want to stay busy and practice my drawing techniques as much as possible. I'm not going to reveal the projects just yet as I don't want to jinx them, but stay tuned. I may reveal a few things I'm going to be working on if things run smoothly. The life of a freelance artist is definitely a difficult one, but fun none-the-less. You never know what the future may bring that's for sure! :)
