Casey is is a graduate of Sheridan College and has taught about art. Having created fine art for over a decade, Casey has reopened the Comic 1 Books, Stoney Creek, Ontario in 2013 and continues to draw comic book material. I interviewed Casey in September for the first volume of CAULDRON Magazine.
During our chat, Casey talked about the second volume of CAULDRON Magazine. He also spoke about his contribution to this spring issue focused on the Greek tale of ORPHEUS AND EURYDICE – a horrific tragedy that befalls two Lovers, sending a Demi-God on a harrowing journey to the underworld to bargain for his true-love’s Fate with Hades himself. He also talked about his future plans including the next volume of CAULDRON Magazine.
