Instead he was fired by the company for stealing tools from the company and selling them on eBay.

He used the email address artistorms@gmail.com. A quick google discovers that address linked to another attempted comics scam to sell supposed artwork by Art Adams, and use of yet another pseudonym, Joshua DeLava.

Including trying to sell the following forgeries; some based on work in Mike Burkey’s art collection, a man he previously tried to scam.
