More Halloweeny-ness, however tangental. A recent illo done for The Stranger about the Twilight series of novels, soon to be a motion picture. It sounds perfectly awful and about as entertaining as Joe the Plumber's forthcoming country music album...but the Vampire/Werewolf/Teenage Girl love triangle made for a nice image.


Happy Halloween!

A few years back, my good pal J Chris Campbell and the fine folks of Wide Awake Press published the Wide Awake 666 anthology. As a way of celebrating one of my favorite holidays, and because I don't imagine I'll have time to create anything new before said holiday, I thought I'd share one of my pieces from that fine book. It's one of two pieces I did for the book, the other which I mentioned quite awhile ago.

Now, as you're well aware, I'm kinda known as a guy who draws the girls. I wanted to do something in that vein for WA666, but I didn't want to do some gross thing where some cutie is being killed by a zombie or something, so I compromised, and came up with something totally gross yet pretty funny. I used the cover of an oft-seen collection of pin-up paintings by the great Gil Elvgren as a starting point, and did my own little homage to this familiar image.

...and this is how you do it!


It's Been Awhile

Sorry for the recent lack of updates...Hopefully now that the "show season" is overwith I'll get back to posting regularly!


Attention, Fellow Virginians!

Today's the last day to register to vote in Virginia. You're all signed up, right? I mean, I can't think of a single acquaintance of mine that wouldn't have their shit at least that together. Right?

SPX was last weekend. Yeah, it was awesome. Photos to come.


Stir Crazy

Just in time for SPX, my new print, titled "Stir Crazy", is finished and ready to go. The setting is based on my local coffee shop (called Stir Crazy, 'natch), which is just around the corner from my house and sorta doubles as my office...before our daughter was born, it was a daily stop...and often still is. I've been wanting to do this project for a long time, and the rush I got finally seeing it in print and finished was fantastic, indeed.

The printing itself was a true collaborative effort, the lion's share of the process ably handled by the talented Spencer Hansen of Team 8 Press (you can peep more of their spectacular work on their blog). Spencer's contributed to several screenprinted jobs I've done in the past, and he always does a swell job. However, this was the first time I'd been on-site for the process, actually pulling a good amount of two colors myself, and it was a lot of fun. 

Here are the details:
  • 12 1/2" by 19"
  • Limited, signed and numbered edition of 60 prints.
  • Five colors (purple, pink, white, orange and dark blue) on 100 lb. stock.
  • $30 each, plus $5 for shipping.
  • All copies ship with a bonus 12" by 6" print by Team 8.
So, if you're in Bethesda this weekend, be sure to drop by the Small Press Expo and grab one! Otherwise, feel free to use the handy PayPal button. Meanwhile, some photographic evidenc of how it all went down!
