About:

Hi! Orpheus Collar here, New York Times best-selling graphic novelist and illustrator. I draw for fun and profit, with a wide and varied clientele in publishing and film.

Based out of Hollywood, born in Baltimore. Orpheus is my given name. Parents just thought it was a good idea at the time. The camel's name is Moses.

When not on assignment, I enjoy world travel, motorcycling, and street hustling as a 6 minute portrait artist.
