Wing and a Prayer

Did some cover art for long-time colleague and collaborator Van G. Garrett. He's got a new chapbook coming out in February entitled 49: Wings and Prayers. Be sure to check out his website for more info on that. Meanwhile, here's the principal art for the cover. Ideally I wanted to try an original woodcut print image but due to time and equipment restraints I put that on the back burner and went with basic pen and ink. I also wanted to have the image somewhat reprographic looking contrast so the face would be instantly recognizable. And that's where the pen and ink come in. After a faint tracing on an improvised lightbox I was able to add in the very wobbly, human-made hatching. I wanted this piece to be created as analog as possible and sure enough, I think I got it to work.


At first I tried to do a xerox transfer but I couldn't find a process that worked.
 


Peep the new book this February! Now lean back...


And Happy New Year.

A samurai dog, if you will.

Rolling out a new shopping experience in December, so you can purchase my stuff in new and more efficient (for me at least) ways. I'll keep ya posted on that. I have to, or else you won't know when to buy stuff.

Gone Limp

...cuz this new zine drained me. And it can drain you too! Limp Lungs #2 is now on sale.
This limited-running unpublished-comic toting, sketchbook-rarity displaying, untold-art commission holding zine has a full color cover, and it's interior pages are made punk-style (utilizing the copy machine to reproduce and size art for layout instead of a computer).
They came out October 17th and were available at this year's Zine Fest Houston.
Now you can order online.

Fat Stuff

Inktober comic. It's an old idea, found it sketched on an index card in stack of old illustrations.
