It Just Happened.


Debuting at TCAF this year will be my newest book entitled This World Is Not For Burning. It's felt like a book that came together very easily and organically. Sometime in 2015, I began carrying around a little book that I would make up stories in. It fit in my back pocket, and I'd draw in it using a ball point pen. I tried very hard not to plan the stories very much. I would start with one panel and see where my mind took me. One book was filled and then another and another. In the end, I had approximately 400 pages of comics. My girlfriend and I sorted through and chose the ones we liked. I redrew those to make them a little more presentable. I was planning to self-publish the book and was working on setting that up when Swimmers Group out of Toronto contacted me about doing a book together. We agreed and now there is this book, and assuming no disasters it will be available mid-May.

It would be nice if everything could be this simple.
