Patric left his former life as a Las Vegas high school teacher with a house, a pension, and new Toyota to go learn how to become a comic book artist. Since 2009, he has worked with Patton Oswalt and Joss Whedon (Serenity: Float Out), Mike Mignola, Christopher Golden, Chris Roberson, and John Arcudi on several "Mignolaverse" titles (Abe Sapien, Hellboy & the BPRD 1954, and Joe Golem), Steve Niles (The Thing), Christopher Cantwell (The Mask), and Rodney Barnes and Jason Shawn Alexander (Nita Hawes Nightmare Blog) as comic book illustrator. He has also done extensive concept and character design work as well as illustrated exclusive covers for several comic titles including Gideon Falls, Skulldigger & Skeleton Boy, and Black Hammer, all created by Jeff Lemire. He now lives in Portland, Oregon with a sofa unit, Medicaid, and a bus pass. He couldn't be happier.
