Originally drawn and written as a series of online poetic vignettes, UNSPENT LOVE addresses themes such as hope, fear, and human frailty. This project has evolved through numerous iterations, including a gallery installation supported by the Nick Novak Fellowship at Open Studio and an experimental wall installation at YYZ Artist's Outlet in Toronto. One chapter of this work won first place in the graphic narrative category of This Magazine’s Great Canadian Literary Hunt in 2010.
In 2011, Conundrum Press published the book version of the project, complete with a letterpressed wraparound jacket printed at Gaspereau Press. Embracing a variety of genres, from poetry to relational art to graphic novel, UNSPENT LOVE is as varied as the characters who populate its quintessentially human stories.

In 2010, I had the immense pleasure of illustrating a sci-fi graphic novel for writer Jim Munroe. A follow up to Jim's first graphic novel Therefore, Repent!, Sword of My Mouth tells the story of a group of anarchist urban farmers in post-rapture Detroit as they fight an incarnation of the apocalyptic horseman, Famine.
