    First time at The D.C.&C.S.
      Like most people that have a love and desire for artistic creation, Austin started drawing at age 7. For over 19 years I have been working in comics on high profile projects in very small doses! I have had the pleasure of inking on books like Iron Man with Bob Layton for Marvel, X-Men Unlimited, 10th Muse/Shi, 10th Muse 800, God Wars and Judo Girl for Alias Comics/Bluewater Productions, Ink Assists on: Tomb Raider & Necromancer for Top Cow, Lettering work on John Carpenter’s Aslyum for StormKing, Witch Girls and Witch Girls Tales for Magna Comix, Illustrated sketch cards for Vamperilla, Red Sonja, The Avengers & Iron Man 3, Wizards of the Coast’s GI Joe, and illustrated a Donald Trump story for Cracked Magazine! I have also done my own projects like 7th Millennium, TAN, Stanley the Snowman and his exciting new project Divine Retribution.
    THEY’RE EDGY… THEY’RE STEAMPUNK…  THEY’RE  TOTALLY AWESOME…
    PHANTASMAGORIA 
    IS BACK TO AMUSE, ENTERTAIN,  TITILLATE, AND AMAZE YOU!
