My friends call me eef. So do some strangers, which is fine with me. I have been drawing since I was in the womb, using placenta fluid as finger paint. You'd think I'd be a better artist by now, but hey at least I'm not that bad.

I've used my art for many projects with many people. I illustrated 3 issues of the black and white comic book series "Creep" for Conspiracy Productions, and also did issue two of "Puppet Terrors: Murder, Mayhem and no Strings Attached". I have worked with Brian Godawa (To End All Wars) on a graphic novel for his "Cruel Logic" Screenplay, as well as director David L. Cunningham (To End All Wars, Little House on the Prairie, After...) doing storyboards for his film "After...". I wrote and drew a 100 page graphic novel, titled "the Weevil", and my new series "Chumble Spuzz: Kill the Devil" was picked up by SLG publishing.

As well as draw I am in the band Lunaractive, a rock band who tours the US and tries to get people to give them money. So far I'm not making much money in either art or rocking, but I continue to do it because it's who I am and what I love to do.

In 1991, President George H. W. Bush implemented a ban on media coverage of returning war dead and their dignified transfer process at Dover Air Force Base, Delaware.

Shortly after he assumed office, President Barack Obama asked Defense Secretary Robert Gates to review this policy, and Gates later reversed it, giving family members of the fallen the right to allow or disallow media coverage.

On April 5th, 2009, the repatriation of the remains of Air Force Staff Sgt. Phillip Meyers became the first such event to be covered by the press in 18 years. This process has taken place, undocumented, over 5,000 times since the beginning of the war in Afghanistan in 2001. Collected here are photographs documenting the transfers of nine soldiers that have taken place since April 5th, 2009. (25 photos total)
