What's this a new page? Can't be... but it sure looks like it.
Check out Page #21, back in "standard comic format" by popular demand.
I'm currently trying to juggle a lot of different projects, which means pages as I can get to them, but that's been the theme for the last year... I've posted up some other artwork on the exiles facebook though. If you haven't liked it yet, check it out here!

I totally forgot to post this update yesterday, been a crazy week. Speaking of which I am currently looking for a new job. Anyone know of a cool company looking for a Art Director/Graphic Designer/Illustrator, please drop me a line. Full time or part time...
Now check out Page #20.

Check out Page #19. Let me know what you think.

Page #18 is up! I can't believe that it's been so long since I've updated. Life tends to get in the way with fun projects with like this. lots has been going on, but the next few pages are already in the works and should be fairly regular for a while at least. I need to figure out some way to make Exiles at least pay for itself so that I can devote more time to this site...
Check back next week for page 19 and as always I appreciate any and all feedback!

Page #17 is now up. This is the first page in quite some time that I've done on paper. I have to say I much prefer working on real paper with real pencils, ink and watercolour. This process is much more time consuming and thus slower updates, but I think it's worth it.
As always you're feedback is appreciated.
With the standard craziness of the holidays there probably won't be any updates until 2013, assuming of course they Mayans were wrong and we're all still here in a few days. ;-)
I also want to take some time and work on some stylistic experiments so I might be posting some sketches and other pieces... assuming anyone wants to see them?
Have a great holiday season or whatever it is you celebrate this time of year!

Page #16 is up. Missed last week trying to get ready for an event I didn't even make it to... oh well. Added in some more colour this page. What do you think? Keep adding in colour or stick to the black and white?
November 19th, 2012
An early update this week (hopefully this will make up for me being late next week), even with playing Halo 4 I got the update done. :-)
The next couple of pages are written as well, just need to get all the artwork done.
Here is page #15, hope you all like it. I've been receiving some interesting feedback on the new format. Haven't commented yet?
Let me know what you think!

I received some good feedback on page 13, here is page 14. I know a few of you are waiting to see how this progresses before commenting, but I always appreciate comments (both positive and "constructive"), so let me know if you have any thoughts with how this is going.

Hello Everyone, it's pretty amazing how time flies. Sorry it's taken so long for this update, but lots going on in my life. The next few updates "should be" quicker. As you have probably seen by now, Page #13 is a significant divergence from my standard format.
I've come to the conclusion that I don't really enjoy drawing "comics" in the traditional sense. I'm much more interested in telling a story and illustrating aspects of that story, compared to just drawing sequential art. So what this means is you can expect most of the following pages to have a similar format (with variations as required).
I very much look forward to everyones' feedback (good and bad), so please take a second and drop me a line, either by
August 29, 2012
Page #12 is finally up. And it's the first fully digital page that I've done on my new Wacom Cintiq. I'm still torn about the process of doing the pages fully digital. So I'd really like to hear everyone's feedback on what you think. Go back to the old process or stick it out fully digital and see how it develops?
July 29, 2012
Hello everyone. Long time since an update I know. So I thought I'd drop you all a line and let you know that Exiles.ca isn't dead, and more content is coming soon.
In the last many months lots has happened in my life. I've started a new job (making iPhone Apps...) and I've moved as well as other changes. So I've been busy. Now I am finally in a position to get back to working on Exiles. With the next update (in August) I'm moving to a fully digital work flow (just waiting on my new Wacom Cintiq). This should reduce the overall time it takes me per page which will make updates more regular.
I'm also working on a "Director's Cut" of Exiles Book One. So I thought I would ask, what everyone would like to see for additional content?
Would you like more pages?
An area of the story fleshed out?
More historical pages of Harry's story?
Let me know and I'll see what I can do... keep an eye out in August for Page 12 of Exiles Book Two as well as more info on the updated Exiles Book One. Thanks for hanging around!
February 29, 2012
Page 11 is up, and I figured it was time for a nice splash page. Something that didn't work well with the layout of Book One. And since I hate drawing both wings and buildings it made sense to push myself on this page. Let me know what you all think.
February 21, 2012
Page 10 is now up. Making minor changes to things, as always let me know what you think. I have a pretty busy week with web projects so page 11 may or may not be on time next week...
February 15, 2012
Page 9 is now up!
February 7, 2012
Surprise, Page 8 is now online. I know it's taken awhile and I appreciate everyone's patience. I'm working on exiles as much as possible, and there should be at least a few regular pages coming in the next few weeks.
As well, Exiles Book One is now back online, if you're new here (or just need to catch up) you can read all of the original Book One story here. Of course you still need to track down a copy of the printed version to get the extra 12 pages of new content. I have a couple printed versions left and you can purchase one here.
You may have also noticed a slight update to the web site design. Hopefully this makes it easier for everyone to find what they are looking for. As well there are a couple of new Sketches, if you missed them on Facebook.
Let me know what you think of the new Site and New Page!

Hello Everyone, it's been a while but life sometimes gets in the way. A couple things I want to mention today. Exiles Book Two is still being worked on, and will continue shortly. Either Like Exiles on Facebook or sign up for the mailing list to be informed when the new pages are posted. As well there will be a web site update with Book One back on line. Of course if you want the exclusive start of Harry's back story you'll have to purchase a printed copy of Exiles Book One. And for the 2011 holiday season I'm offering FREE Shipping to anywhere in Canada or the U.S., and only $5 shipping for anywhere else in the world. If you'd like to order a copy please contact me directly.

Page 7 is finally up. Sorry for the delays but Summer is our busy season and life has been a little chaotic. Over the next month or two updates might be a little sporadic, then hopefully be back on track.
As well I'm considering taking Exiles on the road. If there are any Alberta events where it would be appropriate to Display Exiles (comic and gaming events???), let me know and I'll try and make arrangements.
As always feedback is appreciated. Let me know what you think of the new format for book two, how the story is developing and anything else that might be on your mind.
July 13, 2011
Page 6 is now up, better late than never.
Got some very interesting feedback on the last page. Would you like to see Exiles be MORE or LESS Adult in the future?
June 29, 2011
Page 5 is now up, and We get back to Harry and Mary Agnes. A quick warning, this page may not be safe for work. Let me know what you think.
Also next week's page might be a little late, my schedule is relentless...
June 22, 2011
Page 4 is now up. With four pages in, what is everyone thinking of the new format compared to the old three panel layout of Book One?
BTW, if you've missed out on book one, there are still some copies left, pick up yours today!
June 15, 2011
Page 3 is now up and has our first look at Gabriel.

Martin and Kristie, please contact me to make arrangements for your new artwork!!!
Thank you everyone that purchased Exiles Book One. There are a still a few copies available, get yours today!
June 8, 2011
Page 2 is now up. Lots of great feedback on the new full page format. As always feedback is appreciated.
For the few people who haven't yet paid for their signed and numbered copies of Exiles Book One, I'm making the draw for the original artwork for the cover this week. Only people who have paid will be included in the draw. The Winner will be announced next week!
June 1, 2011
TWO YEARS! Can you believe that it's been two years since Exiles Book One started in June 2009?
I would like to start by thanking everyone that's been here since the beginning. Your support and encouragement make this all worth while.
As you can see, I've changed the format from three panels to a traditional comic book page. This will allow much more flexibility in telling the story and showcasing the artwork.
Pages for Book Two will be updated on Wednesday mornings same as I did with Book One. This summer is shaping up to be extremely busy, but I'll do my best to keep the updates on time and consistent.
A few notes about Exiles Book One. It has now been printed and most of the copies have been sold but there are a few copies remaining. There are 11 new pages in the printed copy that focuses on Harry's back story. This story will be furthered in Book Two, so if you haven't picked up your printed copy yet, you might want to get your hands on one soon.
I hope you all enjoy the journey of Exiles Book Two and as always I welcome feedback and comments!
