These are the websites that I fully support! Some are fellow artists, others are vendors that I’ve used and recommend. I’m always adding more so come back frequently to check out the latest and the greatest links in the world!
Fellow Artists I recommend-
JnK Imagery– A great professional wedding, boudoir and brand photographer. I also do personalized commissions through this site.
Mess Bucket Comics – A publisher out of Michigan that has created the Arcane Awakening Trilogy. I’ve been the artist on the second and third books in the series. Go here if you want to check them out and purchase them.
KikaMika Comics– A website about Concrete Martians and me and Mitch Cook’s journey on how our comic book came to be. If interested in purchasing Part 1 or 2, and you live in the states you can go here and contact Mitch to have them mailed to you. We also have a new ongoing comic coming out called Saltwater. Look for it early next year!
Mike Boldt – A fantastic children’s book writer and illustrator, and a mentor. Pick up one of his books if you can!
Mitch Cook– He’s been my writing collaborator for the last 10 years. He’s a fantastic writer who has written short novels and comic books. Check out his work online.
Printers I use-
TLAC Printing– A local printer out of the GTA. They have great quality products and amazing customer service. All revenue, after cost is donated to the Children’s Hospital in Toronto.
Print Ninja– A full service printer that delivers globally. Great cost and customer service for your off set printing needs.
Children’s book resources-
Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators– An organization that helps children’s book writers and artists connect and learn about the world of children’s book publishing. I highly recommend joining.
CANSCAIP– This is the Canadian equivalent of SCBWI. The acronym is too long to figure out, but you get the idea!
Debbie Ridpath Ohi– She’s a great resource on children’s book creation and marketing. I believe she will answer questions emailed to her. Check out her website as well!
Comic book resources-
Newsarama – A news source for all things geek!
Comic Book Resources – Another great source of geekery info!
Dirk Manning– Check out his book Write Or Wrong about writing in the comic book world!
Deviant Art– a great resource for artists of all kinds. If you are looking for a collaboration, you might find someone here.
