Hey All,
As of yesterday I am now amongst the ranks of the unemployed! And to prevent myself from going completely bankrupt I will do an illustration of whatever it may be, you're choice, for $100-$150 bucks each, depending on the request! If interested send me an email with a description of whatever it may be, and if you'd like a portrait of yourself please attach a photo for reference! THANKS SO MUCH! Also if you're interested in purchasing original art we can discuss that as well!

SPX 2009

This Friday I will be at Atomic Books in Baltimore and then heading to Bethesda where I'll tabling at SPX with Julia Wertz and Jack Turnbull, amongst others! I'll have plenty of copies of the new printing of Crooked Teeth #4 (cover posted below) and a few of the Limited Edition screen printed covers as well. I may have some posters left and some originals for sale, that's to be determined! Of course back issues of Crooked Teeth (aside from #1) will be available as well as The Archer. See you there!

Second Printing!

Here's the cover spread of the second printing. It'll be printed on cardstock, hopefully it'll look good when it gets printed and ready for SPX 09. I'm not sure how many more I'll do of this, so if you want it now's the time to let me know! There are still about 10 or so left of the screen printed cover, those will probably go at SPX! See you there! Maybe some sketchbook updates later this week if time allows!

So this has been a slow month for comics and drawing, too much band stuff, and my room is like an oven. But here's a flier I drew that I think is pretty neat:

It's been a while

No new sketchbook stuff, I've been cranking out some decent pages for CT#4, which is coming along nicely, pretty much on "schedule"...Anyways here's some page samples! Pencils and Inks!!!

This panel was a fun one to draw:

Back to drawing, some more sketchbook comics will be up by the end of the week, I hope...

Fuck Work, Draw!

Here are some pencils from the second chapter of the so far untitled comic I'm serializing in crooked teeth (pt2 will appear in CT#4)

And some older and more recent diary comics that I finally got around to drawing, or finishing up. When I was in San Francisco I picked up some tone from Kinokuniya, I've only messed around a little bit with it, but I kinda like this drawing.

Airports are sad lonely places...

Now that I'm back from my trip all my memories of this place aren't what I remembered...and certain places that maintained a loneliness to them before I left are now even more lonely to me, and places in the Bay Area now have a similar emotional attachmentl. But it is nice to be back in a familiar place I call home. Here are some drawings I did while I was away or somewhat recently. Crooked Teeth #4 will be out at MOCCA!

The larger page is something Austin and I did sometime...I don't remember, but I like the whole page a lot...

Bay Area Bound

So I'm heading to the East Bay tomorrow for 10 days, so I won't have anything updated for a while. Probably not the worst news you've heard, so when I get back look forward to a lot of images, both drawn and taken...

and let the comics begin...

So it's been a long time since I've penciled a page from thumbnails and last night I started and inked a whole page, and today I inked half of a second page and whatnot... I'm pretty stoked to be working on something other than diary comics or sketchbook stuff (especially since the quality of the sketchbook I have right now is shit city). Here's a panel from my untitled story:

And here's some sketchbook shit

I Saw You out now, son!

After a year or so's passed since I finished a comic for it, the anthology "I Saw You"(edited by Julia Wertz) has come out and is available now in comic shops, book stores and the internet! There's also a blog here:
Check it out! Forbidden Planet's sold out right now, but we'll get more soon...And there's a signing at Desert Island Comics (on metropolitan btw union and lorimer) February 20th!! Free booze and cookies, I'm back on the wagon, so it'll be cookies for me.
No really new drawings lately, but I have been reading some great comics that are new to me and I love! Surviving Saskatoon by David Collier is amongst them and is having a large influence on my drawing lately, Drop In by David Lapp and a bunch of Gipi (The Innocents and Notes for a War Story) and I'm back on another Hernandez brothers kick, so that's nothing bad...

So, I finally have the internet and am almost settled in my new home. It's a loft space and stuff, here are some photos of my room:

(yes that's scott pilgrim 5 on my bed...busted)
And to make up for the lack of comics and drawings, here's some I was saving...

So, now that I have the internet and have for some reason been totally stoked on getting things done (I'm with Julia and blame January...), hopefully a lot more comics and sketchbook things will be put up on this at least twice a week! Take care
