I’m very pleased to present to you The Shepherd, the first of my comics to ever make it to print.  It began as a dream I had one night in October, and has blossomed into some of my best work so far; art or otherwise.

This is my first foray into short form graphic storytelling, so I sincerely hope you enjoy reading it as much as I’ve enjoyed making it.
