Trekkin it up
I've got a cover and a story in IDW's "Star Trek: Waypoint" coming up this spring!

Habitat Trade paperback
Order code: AUG160697
“All his life, Hank Cho wanted to join the ranks of the Habsec-the rulers of the orbital habitat his people call home. But when he finds a powerful, forbidden weapon from the deep past, a single moment of violence sets his life-and the brutal society of the habitat-into upheaval. Hunted by the cannibalistic Habsec and sheltered by former enemies, Cho finds himself caught within a civil war that threatens to destroy his world.
A new barbarian sci-fi adventure by SIMON ROY (PROPHET, JAN’S ATOMIC HEART, Tiger Lung), originally serialized in ISLAND MAGAZINE.
In Shops: Oct 26, 2016
SRP: $9.99″
Yo my book is in previews! Talk to your local comic store so you can snag it up this fall!

I'm a comic book artist, Dinosaur enthusiast, and slavic-culture nerd. What more could you need?

Operating System: Mac
Interests
With a road trip and a convention (the always amazing VanCAF) under my belt since the last time I updated this sad, dusty journal, new events! New announcements!

First off - Robin McConnell is posting road trip travelogues, documenting our wild and crazy adventures on the road (image above - me getting picked up at the dawn of the first day with a positively glowing brandon graham). CHECK IT OUT HERE

Secondly - On Saturday June 7th, I'll be in Olympia for the Olympia Comics Festival, where myself, Jesse Reklaw, and Charles Burns (!!!) will be special guests, complete with a roundtable discussion and everything. More info here!

Thirdly - June 21st, Ed Brisson and I will be in Baltimore, doing a signing at Third Eye Comics!

Fourthly - The month ends for me at the Metchosin Summer School for the Arts,  where I'll be spending the 28th-29th teaching a comics course. If you're interested in bringing some stuff to workshop and explore, it's a cheap weekend and I think, from the cool people I've already talked to who will be taking it, it'll be a constructive time. Sign up before it's too late!!!!

I was really blown away by your artistic style and life form ideas in Prophet. One of my fave comics to date and I'm kinda old.
All the earth creatures seemed to have speciated  and held grotesque common traits.
The xiux-guin blade with its death mask and trophies was especially memorable.

I've been a fan of your work for a long time, particularly your amphorans and hoppers, and I absolutely love your art style that somehow manages to get all the detail of a finished product while still having a sketch-like look to it. I recently picked up a copy of Tiger Lung and was blown away. The setting is novel, the stories are phenomenal, and the characters are well rounded and believable. I only have one complaint: it's too short! I need more! I sincerely hope this won't be the last time we get to follow Tiger Lung on his adventures. I don't normally do this sort of thing but I just had to let you know your art--both the drawings and storytelling--have brought me joy and returned that spark of imagination that had been dying down in my soul lately. You're living the dream, man. Never forget that.

Oh, I gave it a great review on Amazon and recommended it to all my friends by the way. That is something I rarely do, so savor it haha.

Dang man I'm never on here - and i feel like an ass for missing this! thanks so much! I'm currently reading some big books on shamanism and the ice age (seperate subjects, in this case). I know I'm a year too late, but thank you so much for the kind words - it helps me keep going too!

Glad to hear it. I've also recently started reading Prophet. I like it... I'm not sure what's happening a lot of the time but I don't let that stop me from enjoying the art, setting, and characters.

Had to give you a watch your art work and creature designs are brilliant! I admire your attention  to building believable hypothetical creatures from trends existent in the fossil record. I enjoyed checking out your gallery. Looking forward to seeing more work from you.
