I'll have a table this Sunday at the Comic Art Con in the Crown Plaza from 10-4, located at 2 Harmon Plaza, Secaucus, NJ!! Go to www.comicartshowcase.com! I've got lots of art for sale from Cracked Magazine, DC's Cartoon Network books, Marvel Comics Rocko's Modern Life and Ren & Stimpy, Rugrats syndicated comic strips and more. Hope to see you there!!
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.

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!

In Athens GA last weekend was the Fluke mini comic convention. I found their site and it looked cool, so I worked up a doggone page for the Fluke Anthology. I just got my copy yesterday and it's a looker! Since the book is out now I figgered it'd be okay to post my page...

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!..

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...

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...

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!...
