My comic art was first published by independent publisher Double Edge Comics. It was at this time comic artist & teacher Carmine Infantino would let me bring pages into what night-classes I could afford to put myself at S.V.A. I’ve has since worked as senior designer for Kung Fu Tai Chi magazine where I created the long running comic series TIGER’S TALE. My premiere Children’s Picture Book LITTLE MONK AND THE MANTIS was awarded both the Book of the Year Honor from the Gellett Burgess Center for Children’s Literature and the Preferred Choice Award from CREATIVE CHILD MAGAZINE. The middle-grade Kindle reader LUCY VELOZ: HIGH-FLYING PRINCESS which feature full color illustrations will be published in paperback by Cosmic Ray Press later this year.
