It's been a minute! Alright, I'm going to try something new, which is tell you what I'm doing. So... here we go.

A couple months ago I moved from Illinois to Queens, NY. So far, it's been pretty great. I've met a lot of cool people. I like the city. I've been making new work. This is a painting I just finished:

It's called, "Integrity Protecting the Works of Man". It's a joke. Do you get it?!?

At the end of last month I had a table at the Grand Comics Festival. It was really a lot of fun. I met a bunch of awesome people. The guy I shared a table with was Barry Bruner. He's a really cool guy with some awesome work. If you don't already know it check it out. I met a bunch of folks who just graduated from the SVA MFA program. Check out Molly's work, and Andrea's, and Alex's and also Alex's Podcast Comics for Grownups, which he co-casts with Joshua Malbin. I traded some comics with Kenan after running into him again at CAKE. He makes cool comics. Anuj's comic "Genus" is being serialized on Study Group, aka the best thing on the internet. His books are really beautiful, so you should buy them. I met Meredith Gran who's comic is called Octopus Pie. She also draws and writes comics for Boom Studios. I met Josh Bayer! He's awesome. I had a late night train conversation with Tom Motley in which we discussed anachronisms, geography and the crushing vulnerability of trying to sell art to people. He's a really interesting guy, and I really enjoyed talking to him. I was also lucky enough to meet Jen and Chris and a couple of their studio-mates. All of whom make amazing work. And last but certainly not least, a giant thank you to Pat Dorian, who organized the whole thing and to Bird River Studios who hosted it. Pat's a hero. There were more awesome people there. Go to the website to see them and look at pictures. I have no pictures.

I made a new comic for this thing. It's called Robot Versus Ghost. It's about friends. Here are some pages from that:

Also, here are a couple paintings from my "Travel" series that I never posted here:

Alright! I think that's it. I don't know if all that was worth it, but there it is. Hope you check out those links and enjoy the images.

Take care.


Long Break

So, this is the first in a series of paintings I completed in March. As always, let me know what you think.

Take care.

Gangster Bankers

Just read Matt Taibbi’s article in the latest Rolling Stone. I wanted to do my own illustration for it and capture a little more of the feeling of the article. I’ve been looking for new cliches when dealing with corrupt bankers. It seems like most political illustrations are still calling back to cliches from the 20’s and 30’s, if not even further back. I want to find my own way of dealing with the subject matter. Also, I’m having a lot of fun with paint again.


I'm going out of town. I'm going to try and get one more of these done today before I go, but it may not go up. I'll let you in on everything, faithful visitor, once I get back. These are a few Op-Ed-esque illustrations I did this week. Hope you dig'em.
Bottom's my fav. Take care.
