I am a comic book artist and illustrator living in Montreal. In recent years, I have focused primarily on the adaptation of classic poems into comics. I have a master’s degree in Art History, with a thesis focusing on two early graphic novels: Dino Buzzati’s “Poema a fumetti” (“Poem Strip”) and the “The Projector” by Martin Vaughn-James. My favourite artist is Aubrey Beardsley. My favourite comic book artists are Andrea Pazienza, Dino Battaglia, Hergé and Alberto Breccia. Among my favourite living comic book artists are Lorenzo Mattotti, Kate Beaton, Brecht Evens, Seth, and Gipi. My favourite comic book is Dino Buzzati’s “Poem Strip.” My favourite poets are probably T. S. Eliot, W.B. Yeats and Arthur Rimbaud. My favourite poems are probably the four English poems featured on this website, or possibly Edward Fitzgerald’s translation of “The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam”. My favourite food is risotto.
My debut book, Poems to See By: A Comic Artist Interprets Great Poetry, will be released on March 31 by Plough Publishing, and is now available for pre-order on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Poems-See-Artist-Interprets-Poetry/dp/087486318X
