Seven Strange Stories

Seven Strange Stories by Oliver Ho (cover artwork by Rina Rozsas)

1-front

Here is yet one more collection of stories that I had the honor and pleasure of being a part of over the past year.
Seven Strange Stories is a book of stories based on Chinese Mythology, set in various times, written by my friend Oliver Ho. Oliver is a fellow creative I met through Ty Templeton’s Comic Book Boot Camp back in around 2010. A prolific and tremendous talent, he shares a love of comics that I do, except mainly from the writing aspect. And this book is definitely a top notch showcase for his skills.
Along with myself, Rina Rozsas, B.C. Holmes, Brice Hall and Tuhin Giri (all CBBC alum) contributed art duties to this collection(Rina also provided cover art and Victor Chan handled production of the book), with all of us putting our best foot forward to visually represent Oliver’s writing anthology endeavour. It was a blast to work on, and I think definitely showcases some of my best sequential work to date.

Follow this link to see more about the book, and be sure to pick up a copy for yourself through the site. You won’t regret it.🙂

Hogtown Horror! Hooray!!

Hogtown Horror Anthology Kickstarter!

Once again I’ve been proudly in collaboration with lots of great Toronto creators on another comics anthology. This time, horror and creepiness dominate the city’s landscape as tales of ghosts, zombies and all matter of terrifying scenes make their debut.

I had the amazing privilege of taking part in not one but two stories in this book. The first, “Dwayne’s Inferno” is written by Sam Noir and is about as creepy as a home life tale as one can tell. The other story,”Cronenberg” written by Mike, is just that- a tale about David Cronenberg.

I’m super stoked to see this whole collection of stories come to life, with such talent on board to give it true Toronto Horror style. Please check out the link and help see this book make its way to the stands!
