The Origin of My Secret Identity, Wascally Wee Willy

I love art. I love comics. My inspiration and artistic themes come from the banned comics of the 1950s. I tell my comic stories using quilt-like interwoven patterns, color, graphics and word balloons. I have been a highly successful book artist for thirty years, working primarily in digital formats for the last two decades.
