I am a New York City based artist. Although my current full-time work includes illustrating and writing the GARBAGE PAIL KIDS and WACKY PACKAGES trading card series for the TOPPS company, I have a myriad of illustrative projects that fill up my portfolio.

​I have created artwork for rock bands and music festivals designing tour posters, concert tees, logos, and album art. As the founder of WAX EYE, I have released the CEREAL KILLERS and STUPID HEROES parody trading card series and CEREAL BOOM mobile app game. I’ve written and illustrated the children’s book series THE SWEET ROT and am Co-Director/Producer of the GARBAGE PAIL KIDS documentary film 30 YEARS OF GARBAGE: The GARBAGE PAIL KIDS STORY.
