"New" work in WWE Kids Magazine!




I'm in the June '09 issue of WWE Kids Magazine! I would've written sooner if I had remembered to contact my gracious design director and see when the job was printed. I used to do a lot of "ghosting" other styles when I was at Cracked, so it was fun to get the chance to try it again. I did all of them except for the "Goodnight, Kane" spoof.

older version dipstikk dog toy design


Here's a sketch I found from a while back of our ol' pal, Dipstikk Dog. I love what places like Kid Robot are doing these days with vinyl toys, so I fooled around with a toy design while still working on DD's actual design.

PopGun Volume 4


I just finished up a two page color strip for PopGun Volume 4. It's such a creative joy to do this work. They pretty much let me do anything. And I do! At work the artist does not have the last say in a creative project. Everyone has input and things they would like to have included in a piece of art. I realize that and accept it. It's part of the job. I don't own the company I work for. Fine, but every now and then you'll get a chance to do something that's completely all you, all yours. What a wonderful feeling! The PopGun books are great because it's being published by one of the bigger and better comic book companies and there are a lot of other fantastic artists and writers that are also involved.

Mini-comix allow you that opportunity as well. Doing something that you want to do, on a much smaller level.

So, anyway, here's the first panel of my comic. After it's published I'll post the whole thing. I've been told that it won't be out until December or January, but I'll bet that it's worth the wait!

dog comix #6 1/2


In the mid to late '80's. I did some mini comics and I loved'em. It was fun, spontaneous, and a great creative outlet. My pal, George Erling, who was one of the founding fathers of the newave mini-comix revolution in the late '70's and '80's introduced me to the art form. He also recently told me that Fantagraphics Books is going to put out a collection of '80's mini comix, and I'm hoping to be a part of it. Here's the cover to my latest mini that I plan on selling at a comic art show this Sunday in beautiful Secaucus, NJ. For more info on the show, go to www.comicartshowcase.com. Hope to see you there!..

From 8-07 to 6-08 I used one of these cute little 4x6 sketchbooks. I used it at the same time I had my regular sketchbook. At that smaller size it was less intimidating and a lot of fun. Here's 3 pages for your viewing pleasure...

friggit the frog


Hey gang,
Here's the finished comic page that appears in Image Comics' PopGun Vol.2 which is out in only the best comic book establishments across the country. I got my copy a couple of weeks ago and there's some truly amazing stuff inside. Working on a 2 page comic for Vol. 3!
By the way, Friggit was created way back in elementary school. Our art class assignment was to create a cartoon character. I was so impressed with myself and couldn't understand why my parents hesitated and winced when I showed them my latest creation on the classroom wall. Ah, the innocence of youth...

dog comix page 2


Here's what should be page 2 in my 3 page dog comix strip. Originally I was thinking of doing single page strips and then thought it would work better as a 3 pager. So insert this page in between the dog comix page 1 and the other dog comix page with the dog drool oval panel. I know it's doggone confusing...

sketchbook

Hey, gang. Still haven't got my scanner fixed but I had to post. I just finished my sketchbook that has all the sketchbook posts of late. I started this one on 6-20-06 and finished today 1-18-09. Granted there were some long lapses early on, but I'm very committed to trying to sketch every day lately. Helps to keep my sanity. I'll try to scan when I can!...
