Kurt Phaneuf has been illustrating for 15yrs now as a freelance artist producing a lot of commission work throughout most of his career illustrating things such as wildlife, landscapes, portraits etc. But the idea of creating his own Graphic novel/comic book was always lingering in the back of his mind.
“Comic book creating has always been my first love in the artistic world, and I’m more than ecstatic to finally be a part of it all. It’s a big step forward. That plus I’ve never seen myself as a writer before. However I’ve had to keep pushing my skills into newer territory and challenging myself to complete all these storylines, original artwork and characters, while keeping them true to their theme. I’m a firm believer of high quality visuals with great plots, which is what my readers should expect from me every time”. – Kurt Phaneuf ASC
