Rush creates graphic novels from his home studio. He’s a devoted husband and work-from-home dad.

In the fall of 2020, Rush published his first and long awaited children’s book: “Sprint the Cat – Book 1: What’s For Breakfast?” This has been a labor of love for over a year. It was hand drawn and inked, inspired by the Hamden family’s adoption of a cute, sweet kitten named Spike from the local Burbank Animal Shelter.

The book is based on a silly conversation that Rush had with Spike, the family cat, one morning. From that simple interchange, a 45-page children’s book was born.
