I'm a freelance illustrator and graphic designer living and working in the Boston area. Currently I'm busy creating the design company, dobot and working on a comic book.

For the past 6 months I’ve been hard at work on a book series called “The Cartoon Guidebook to Absolute Failure”. I’ve been unable to speak about it too in depth or reveal any details aside from a few preview shots I share occasionally on twitter. It’s been a long time coming, but we finally have a release date schedule mapped out in full for the Cartoon Guidebook to Failure books! My writer and creative partner, Erik Craddock has all the details:

“Good news everybody! We finally have concrete sale dates for issues one and two, and both books will be on sale Wednesday, September 11th, exclusively on comixology.com!

Best of all, issue one will be free to download, and issue two will only cost 99 cents. You hear that? That’s sixty-four pages of pure literary awesomeness for your digital reader of choice for less than a dollar!

So now you have no excuse not to buy it (unless you really don’t want to, which would be really sad…)

As for the other books in the series, we’ll be releasing each issue on a monthly basis, and the first printed volume (with a super awesome cover on it) will coincide with the digital release of issue three in mid-October! So get ready to laugh hard and fail miserably, because our books are coming to your digital bookstore this fall!”

This is an excerpt from his personal site, where we now have all the dates posted and previews from each book :

The first two issues are now officially available on Comixology:


Hope you enjoy them!


Hey everyone,

So it’s been quite a while since I posted anything new, which is very unlike me. Rest assured, I’ve still been extremely busy creating new art, but not all of it are projects or pieces I can pull the curtain off yet. However, one of the things that I can officially announce is the title of my upcoming book series, “The Cartoon Guidebook To Absolute Failure”, written by my great friend Erik Craddock. As you can probably guess by the cover of Issue 1, this book is a little over the top. There will be 6 issues in total, but the first one will be releasing later this summer. For more details directly from the author, check out: http://erikcraddock.com/announcing-brand-new-book-series-cartoon-guidebook-absolute-failure/

We’ll have more to reveal very soon, but for now this will have to do.


About two weeks ago I did a variant cover design for the Bravest Warriors comic #7. The folks at Comic Alliance put up a preview here http://www.comicsalliance.com/2013/01/09/bravest-warriors-7-cover-art-preview/. I had no idea how much darker my concept was than the others until they were all placed alongside each other, but I guess that’s to be expected from me. Also, I’ve attached the original concept I did as well as the printed one. Originally, Danny was giving the finger to his broken suit and the leaking air, but ultimately had to cut it since the comics are intended for all ages… unlike the show.

Last week I did a cover for Boston circular The WeeklyDig’s winter issue. I’ve put the original illustration alongside the printed design. Hope it helps to get people into the holiday spirit!

I was contacted by the Drawing Dreams Foundation over the past weekend, who asked if I would be interested in contributing two line drawings for their upcoming coloring book. It’s a zoo themed coloring book, but they wanted all of the animals to be imaginary blends of preexisting animals. Below each illustration would be a blank space designated by a line where the kids can give the creature a name. The coloring books will be donated and distributed to hospitalized children and sold online, at selective retail venues, and at hospital and museum gift shops.  Proceeds from online and retail sales will help fund printing costs and distribution to children’s hospitals. I’m very pleased to have helped with such a great idea and can’t wait to see what the kids think or what other creatures might develop for the final book release in December.

I recently had the utmost pleasure to work with the folks over at KaBOOM! Studios on the Adventure Time comic series! I created a cover for their new story arc that’s beginning in October - I did the cover to issue #11 (Cover C), as seen towards the bottom right of the attached link, right next to Paul Pope’s.  Again, I’m honored to have been able to work on such an outstanding property and comic series. Hope you all enjoy it!


I was recently invited to a gallery show in Allston, MA by my friend Tak Toyoshima called “Death of Childhood”, that was centered around the idea of warped and or perverted childhood memories. Mine was inspired by those ice cream pops made to look like your favorite cartoon characters, but in this scenario they work as if voodoo dolls since after I grew up it always seemed sort of deranged to me.

The show will run -

October 20, 2012 through November 19, 2012

In both preparation and promotion for our ( Steve Trevathan and I ) recently established company, “dobot”, we created this poster design that will be distributed as well as sold in our online store, once it’s set up. It also works as a precursor for what is to come from the company. That being said, we are a design company that works to create the best product possible for people and company who are looking to progress, innovate, or in some way improve/contribute to the world. This image represents the closest thing we have to a mascot; a giant robot character we created aptly named, dobot. In a story we’ve conceived (and will ultimately present to the world via animated storybook series on our site) he is a robot who lands on earth and seems to have been programmed to do one simple task; improve the design of everything in order to make it as efficient as possible - a gross exaggeration of our company’s motto. It’s going to be a ton of fun to create and we think that it will be great for our creative juices and personalities to shine through.


A tribute piece I did inspired my the amazing Madman work by the great Mike Allred. -L

This was a commission I received from Shelli Paroline whilst at Heroes Con this past weekend. Yes, it’s Julia Child as a spy. It took me a while to really grasp and conceive how this could work, but I think I managed. Check out her Adventure Time comics and other work here http://shelligator.tumblr.com/

A little character design I did last night in order to take a break. I wanted to make something cute and childish, which meant illustrating a hedgehog named “Hedgy”, holding a button and wearing a thimble. Let the cute ensue.


My friend, Steven Trevathan, and I have begun a design partnership/company called “dobot”. We are looking to design for companies that are looking to do good in the world that is based around progression and morality. The site will soon be launching, but in the meantime I’ve been developing some designs and promotional work for dobot, such as these robotic fruits, which I hope to use on t-shirts, buttons, stickers, etc. We will also be using the site as a platform to use our illustrative and design skills for storytelling, beginning with the tale of dobot (a giant robot from space). Stay tuned! We are both very excited for this project.
