    Art Spotlight

    This is one of my absolute favorite pieces. When I decided to do an epic modern re-visioning of Paradise Lost, I knew I had to come up with a unique image of God, which led to this sweeping, majestic figure of light. One of the best parts is that in the story, this version of God always appears as the same species as whoever is looking upon this form of pure light, human or alien. God's form also constantly shifts, sometimes male, sometimes female, appearing with different ethnic traits, etc. A statement that we all are made in the image of God! You can buy a print here!

    Character Spotlight


    The Knight was one of my second-generation characters I originally created way back in college. This series was my first attempt at writing a more mature superhero, and yes, there is an absolute superficial resemblance to a certain other (Dark) Knight, but trust me when I say it ends there.

    We open the series knowing the Knight will sacrifice their life to save Washington DC, but no one knows who the Knight actually was. The first arc tells the origin story while keeping that identity a secret, as several major characters suddenly find their lives intersecting in various ways, all of which will lead one of them to don the stealth armor and become a hero to the people, even as we catch glimpses of their final battle!

    When I met Mario Torrisi on Facebook, I knew I wanted to work with him because of his gorgeous art. The designs above are his, loosely adapted from my original designs (trust me, these are much better) and meeting the technical specs for the armor itself.

FREE COMICS & A Personal Update


First, let me just thank all of you who get our newsletter or surf my site, and actually open and check it out, often clicking on links to take a deeper dive! You folks are the main reason we're here! While creative work is its own reward, the feeling of it connecting with people, entertaining them, maybe even offering a little inspiration from time to time is amazing! So, know we appreciate it all.

Second, you may have noticed things 'glitched' the last week or so.

While I don't intend to make these newsletters personal often, I do feel I need to offer some explanations. A lot of the projects and efforts I've been promoting were originally started under a publisher partnership, this was an agreement I worked very hard to make the most of and it paid off on a lot of opportunities. Unfortunately, through no fault of my own, and no maliciousness on anyone's part, that partnership did not work out, leaving all the responsibility for all these efforts solely on me.

As those who know me might have gleaned, I can be very stubborn and dive into the deep end more than I should, so, I determined to move forward with EVERYTHING, but now on my own. And it was coming together. Unfortunately, it was doing so at the cost of my mental health and the time I wanted to spend on my own creative work.

So, I have decided, and it was a tough decision, to pull back and let most of the project management, licensing and development work I've done over the last two years go, which has been heartbreaking, but necessary. At this point, I need to fully commit to my own creative work as a writer and artist, limiting my involvement only to projects where I have a key creative role, not just an editorial or management one.

I do hope everyone continues to support Outrider, who did nothing but good by me, with whom I'm still hoping to write and do art for if possible, and EvCol Entertainment which has been the highlight partnership as it has been 100% creating my own stories, which is what I truly love. I will also continue releasing my own creator-owned work, but not as a full publisher. I will be seeking to do so through other publishers and platforms so I can focus on creating the work.

So, I hope you stick with me and Visionary, we've got some awesome creators, and you'll be seeing more from all of us in future weeks! In the meantime, as a thank you for your support, click below to get three FREE COMICS, written by me and brought to life by incredible artists! Then, check out our links below to find a listing of everything of mine that is currently available, and keep checking in here as we announce new venues, platforms, and options for getting my work directly, or through other publishers! We still have a heck of a ride ahead! Trust me!

Remember, always stay Visionary!
