I'm so glad I found you on DeviantArt! I can't thank you enough for your work, not just for influencing me as an adult but for creating so many of the powerful, mythic images that I enjoyed as a child.

I spent a lot of time in hospitals and would escape into comics, my first and favorite being Ghost Rider. I usually couldn't follow the storylines since I rarely got consecutive issues, but I'd lose myself in the art. I was transfixed by your use of shadows, and how they forced me to 'fill in the blanks' with my mind. Ghost Rider himself had the same effect - to me his flaming skull was the most expressive character on the page. It made me enjoy using my imagination. I remember trying to recreate some of your covers for some of my first serious attempts at drawing...to the horror of the nurses, I'm sure.

I don't know why I didn't look you up until now, but I'm glad I did! Thank you for giving 8-year-old me a distraction when necessary, and a love of all things dark and imaginative that has lasted me a lifetime.

I've really enjoyed going through your gallery, and I can't wait to see what comes next!
