He wrote several comic books but ultimately decides to go working in advertising but he always remained active in the comic book world. At his later years he co-founded Eppo but also remained working in the advertisment world. Later in life he would turn his attention back to comic book stating that he didn't want to die as an advertisment artist, but that he wanted to die as a comic book artist.
