I think i've had that a few times. Also experienced sleep paralysis and i have hypnagogic jerks just about ever night as I fall to sleep. makes me sound very twitchy, but really, i can fall a sleep in about 2 min easy most nights, and tend to be pretty soundly out once I am.

And don't forget, a great way to #support an #artist is by pledging on #Patreon! As little as $2 monthly will help me get the work done and get you all my #comics guilt free. Even just sharing this clip with your personal recommendation is a big big help. Check out my new patreon pitch here and consider becoming a patron of my arts!

Introduction

Salgood Sam is Max Douglas backwards and two letters changed.

Born in 1970 I grew up in Toronto, the child of young bohemians growing up absurd. When I was 27 I moved to Montreal thinking it was the start of my travelling phase. That was 1997 and I'm still here.
 I've lived and worked as an artist since I was 19. Most of the second half of my life drawing comics, illustrations, a bit of sculpture with plans for more. Painting, zine publishing, and making things. A few years ago I started including writing as a job title; recently actually feels like maybe it's true. And for a while I've dabbled in content editing on-line.

I started my professional comics life in the early 90's after doing a little bit of work in B-move FX and gaming monster designs, working for Marvel on a few horror & sci-fi books. Took me about 4 years before realizing the WFH scene was the wrong path for me. By '96 I struck off looking for more meaningful work. 

Since then I've worked in animation a bit here and there. And when I can find it I enjoy illustration work quite a lot. Probably my favourite thing to do for pay so far and I love the combination of design and art in a good illustration project where I'm given the latitude to be creative. Always interested in this kind of work so please do consider my portfolio if your looking for an artist. 

A computer camp kid in the 80's I always liked messing with them, but being poor it took a while to get my hands on one full time. The first box I owned was a 92 Mac LC II. Not the most powerful machine by far but I squeezed a lot of it, it was a loyal tool. The OS6 on it is a bit corrupted but it still technically works, I keep it bagged in the closet. Did some desk top publishing, sound editing for radio, and was one of the first to use a computer to manipulate my comics art [see my work on saint sinner, the character "Kento Canto, the inter-dimensional acrobat" was a bassic Photoshop joby] and around 1994 I briefly served as the in house graphics guy for a ISP start up called hub.org, they didn't really use me for very much, dial up bandwidth and all that, but I've been messing around with building web sites ever since, mostly for fun.

Also for fun: starting around '90 or so, till 96, I engineered & produced a weekly oddball variety radio show on CIUT 89.5 FM, first called Signal to Noise, then later Channel Zero. Once a week I'd wrangle comedians, spoken word artists, musicians and our hosts for an hour for fun. It was mostly, while I was never a pro I think I managed to do a decent job of it. I keep my hand in the AV club still now and then. Not to long ago I did a stint as Editor for The Indie Spinner Rack pod cast while Charlito was in a one man play, and for a few podcasts on my blog Sequential.

Despite the early set backs in WFH comics, I've keep my storytelling apatite sated with a few personal projects, & select graphic novels and one shots that mean something to me. That quest for a cretin feeling flavour and depth led me to draw and self published a very well received collection of short stories called RevolveЯ One in 2004, For which I was nominated for "Best Emerging Talent" in the inaugural Doug Wright Awards. it's since evolved into a webcomics anthology you can read here
After that I illustrated the bloody Vampirate tale, Sea of Red: No Grave But The Sea, and worked on Mr. Comics' REVOLUTION on the PLANET OF THE APES.

In 2007 at TCAF I had the pleasure to launch a critically acclaimed post rapture graphic novel with DIY author Jim Munroe, titled Therefore Repent! I was invited to contribute to the Tori Amos mega comic's anthology, Comic Book Tattoo, and I'm working on a number of new short stories along side of my current graphic novel project, Dream Life that will be completed with the help of a grant I received from the Canadian council for the arts.  Work Salgood work.

Marc is a Gentlemen and big booster of local artists, and he keeps a nice book shop. If you're living in the area you should drop by and get some comics!

The closest local pet shop for me, small, run by nice people, very well stocked, and not just a Dog place either! they have a chill resident cat, a friendly lazy stray they took in. And are very helpful whenever i've needed something for one of my three cats. They have a limited line of foods, but most of the best quality ones and none of the junk. Likewise for most other things you would need for a dog or cat. A great local privately run shop!

Went to diner with family from out of town here, food was very good. It's a small, well run bistro, heavy on the meets of course but with a nice selection of options just the same - also, very good prices. Nice little hidden gem.

I'm biased as an artist they support, but they have a pretty great looking comics collection. I didn't really have time to look too close, but saw some cool things on the shelves. Had a nice launch event for my new book there this week, seemed like a family around the shop. And Alex and his partner at the shop were really nice!

One of the best 24hr joints in town, not fine dinning but good quality for a diner and nice people. Breakfast ANY time. Late at night you get a lot of the club crowds, the rest of the time it's pretty chill and upbeat. Some kitsch int design, look for the pigs and the clocks. Poutines are large and good! Also not a half bad if a bit small hamburgers. I quite like their steak haché club sandwich though. Think big double decker hamburger cut in 4, with nice helping of fries. Get it with cheese and sauce on the side for the fries. can be swapped out for a small poutine if you think the gut can take it. Coffee is OK, nothing special but the cups are plentiful. Haven't tried the espresso but they have it.

I really like this place, it's not very big so busy nights it's hard to get a seat. But of the three or four dishes i've tried it's always been very good. Would not call it authentic, it's a mixed bag of different styles of Asian noodle dishes in a Japanese influenced setting, some seats at a low counter and small tables with floor mats. Nice atmosphere for a date or intimate diner with a few friends. Menu even had a couple gluten free options [rice noodles].
