Early career

Warren reportedly gave up a promising job in the field of corporal vessel internment facility lawn care to attend the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art starting in 1985, but after less than a year of attendance was unsure about his future in graphic art. Over the Christmas break of his first year he chanced upon manga and anime, some of which was the original Dirty Pair. After a year of attempting to acquire the rights to produce a comic based on the series he was finally able to make inroads with Toren Smith and Studio Proteus. Warren put together a portfolio of Dirty Pair-related work which Smith then took to Sunrise Studios, but they were unimpressed with the work and negotiations went nowhere. Smith then contacted Takachiho Haruka, the creator of the Dirty Pair, who was much more impressed with Warren's ideas and agreed to license the characters for an American comic. The only requirement was that the character designs be somewhat different from the anime versions to avoid copyright issues with Sunrise. This directly resulted in Warren's first major work: Dirty Pair: Biohazards, which he co-wrote with Toren Smith and published through Studio Proteus and Eclipse Comics.

Later career

Throughout the '90s Warren produced several Dirty Pair comics and trade paperbacks as well as cover, pin-up and other "freelance" art. During this time he provided numerous cover illustrations, most notably covers for the X-Men, Star Wars, Fantastic Four, and Appleseed series, as well as some trading card art, and even in-house Christmas cards for Studio Proteus. Towards the end of the '90s and into early the 2000s he was one of the main writers, and to a lesser extent artist, for the Gen¹³ series from Wildstorm comics. Several articles in Spin Magazine also featured art by Warren. He has also been known to do some translation and scripting work, Seraphic Feather and Cannon God Exaxxion being two of the only known credited examples. Also, as of recent years, PlayStation Magazine has commissioned him to draw comics for their last page in the magazine. His comics usually relate to their major featured article.
