So the END of the WORLD was kind of a letdown . . . I had been anticipating this for two decades . Rather than let disappointment win , I decided I would continue on . I spent the month of December working overtime at Disney and sneeking in spare moments towards my Snarky the Elf 2012 Christmas Story where I could .

I chose to broaden my Snarky Universe this year , creating ALL NEW sets to tell the story , add NEW CHARACTERS and in general let my inspiration lead me where it wished . What ensued was beyond my wildest imagination - it was cathartic artistically .

During the month of December I built THREE sets - Santa's Living room , the Entrance to his Home , and the Workshop . The " Snarky Christmas story I wrote ended up requiring 84 panels ( about 16 pages ) that were shot and lettered in FIVE days . I was in " the zone " . The story was met with universal ( if miniscule ) applause .

The reception was such , that I decided that to keep Snarky to myself and my " inner circle " was unfair to Snarky the Elf , I would need to make her MORE accessible . To that end I have commenced work on the OFFICIAL Snarky the Elf website .

It promises to be an interesting NEW YEAR !!

Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
Released my first Limited Edition Print in 1979 , and went to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh to study comercial art . Started working as a mold maker /sculptor for Ral Partha Enterprises in 1981 and went freelance fulltime in 1984 as a sculptor and illustrator . I attended the Academy of Communicative Arts in Cinicinnati in 1985 to learn traditional cel animation and was hired full time by Post Production Services in 1987 as an animator and computer graphics designer . I left commercial art in 1990 to freelance fulltime once again as a comic book illustrator , which I did until 1999 when I " officially retired " as a professional artist in order to work in the " real world " ( also known as a job that actually paid enough to enable me to PAY BILLS and have a LIFE ! ) Boredom with managing a retail liquor store eventually lead me back to the art world where I began working as a freelance contractor for The Walt Disney Company in 2010 as a theme production artist . In April of 2012 , I was hired full time by the Walt Disney Company in the capacity of a theme production artist in a perepheral workshop of Walt Disney World's Central Shops .
