My Clients

I've had a remarkable adventure working with the following clients:

Speaking of canvases, I wanted to talk about the growth of artist McDaniel during his time on Daredevil....
Few other artists were approaching comic-book storytelling with the verve and innovation Scott was back then. It's an editor's dream to be able to chart upward a penciler or writer's development. I saw it with Bill Sienkiewicz on Moon Knight, likewise with Frank Miller, John Romita Jr. and then Scott McDaniel on Daredevil. You sense the artist striving to find new ways to tell a story. Scott's layouts have a fluidity and sense of movement that's jaw-dropping. There's a grittiness to his art, as the story demanded, yet there is also a dreamy quality that's so effectively intermixed. Few artists can pull off that elusive dichotomy.

About Me

me

I am an electrical engineer turned self-taught artist based in Pittsburgh, PA. I have worked as a penciler, inker, cover artist, layout artist and writer in comics for over twenty five years. I was blessed to enjoy rewarding runs on Marvel's Daredevil series and Elektra mini-series as well as DC Comics' Nightwing, Batman, Superman, Robin and Green Arrow monthly series and others. My creator-owned comics work includes BlackBox Comics' I.T. - the Secret World of Modern Banking and The Gospel of Jesus Christ - a Visual Presentation. Fun and unique projects, such as Marvel's Daredevil/Batman cross-over, DC's Just Imagine Stan Lee Creating: Aquaman with Stan Lee himself (!), posters, book-ends, statue design, and even the Batman spread in the DCU Heroes pop-up book, round out my adventures in comics.

I am best known for my high-contrast work on Marvel's Daredevil, my acrobatic and dynamic work on DC's Nightwing, and my full-color work on BlackBox Comics' Gospel of Jesus Christ.
