Self Portrait of Denis Caron

Denis Caron is the creator of Corvink, an art centered brand revolving around his art, comics, and designs. He was born on April 10th 1985, in Van Nuys, California and graduated with a degree in Psychology in 2007 at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

While in college Denis started his first webcomic, Reeder Rabbit, about two rabbits in 2005 under the pseudonym Joenis (a mix of his first and middle name, Denis/Joseph) Norac (his last name backwards). The comic started from instant message conversations between himself and his friend Austin Reeder, the co-creator. The comic continued until 2007 when it ended due to creative differences between the creators.  At this point, Denis decided to focus his time on other creative projects including Unconscious Ink [ui], ArtisticDOOM and Anhedonia Blue. Reeder Rabbit has made at least one appearance in all his personal work since.

He co-founded a webcomic collective with his friend Ali Showkati called The Noir Project (AKA TNP Press) in 2006 featuring comics such as Nerf This, My Cardboard Life, Robbie and Bobby, Beardfluff, Rob The Bot and his own projects including Unconscious Ink & Anhedonia Blue. The collective disbanded 2011.

In 2010, under his own name, Denis started a new comic called L.A.W.L.S. (Large Air Whales Like Silence) about a boy on a journey to bludgeon air whales. In December of 2011, L.A.W.L.S. Volume 1 - Choking on Air was successfully funded on Kickstarter and released at San Diego Comic-Con in July 2012. In December of 2011, while Denis worked on the production of the book, he started a two other comics to fill in while taking time off of L.A.W.L.S.; a spin off, slice of life comic based on the the stories characters called ALT. and a word of the day, clip art comic called Words of Interest. All three comics are on going projects.

He began exhibiting in 2009 under various names including ArtisticDOOM, TNP Press, L.A.W.L.S. and in 2012 when he created his own brand, Corvink.

In the early part of 2012 Denis was approached by Ali Showkati to work on another project with him; Destined Legends, a card game that Ali and his brother Shawn had been working. At that point Denis joined the Decobot team to help develop the game and find artists that best suited the project. In November of 2012, the Destined Legends Battle Set, was funded on Kickstarter and made its debut at San Diego Comic-Con in July 2013. He currently is still working on development of future releases with Decobot.
