Weekend Adventures

  Last weekend I pilfered my son’s red twistable crayon. On Saturday he saw it laying on my desk and said it was his– which meant he suddenly wanted it. A few minutes later he put it back down in the den, so I required it before we took our weekly trek to Target for

Why Our Mailbox Reminds Me of Death

A quick drive down our street and you’ll notice a couple of things. First, that the trees in the front of the three houses at the end of the cul-de-sac are a different variety than the rest of the neighborhood, and second, that those same houses have very different mailboxes.

Warm-up Sketch: Uni-Welder

I bought some art supplies this week including new white acrylic ink for highlights. I also used up the last piece of art board on my pad, so I used the back. A felicitous convergence of two events on a week saturated with politics.

Warm up sketch: Hound

No time to write anything substantial or color the sketch today since I’m headed out the door to go to a funeral.  Until Tomorrow, here’s Hound.  He was always one of my favorites as a kid.

Warm up sketch: Wheeljack

I’m getting closer to launching my Kickstarter campaign to fund the first print-run of my co-creator owned graphic novel, Vex. On Saturday my friend Jason came by the studio where he patiently filmed me stumbling through an hour or so of  trying to speak for only two minutes worth of video. Note to self: Next
