Pipe Dream

"A Sophisticated Sort"

(I wonder when smoking pipes will become more commonplace.  How very classy.)

Playing with watercolors

A couple new watercolor illustrations.


"Wandering"

(I don't usually go for pink in my color palette, but this time it just felt right.)

"Whatever It Takes To Survive"

(This is one of my favorite ones yet.  Feels like there's potential danger at every turn for these two, but they'll see their way through it.)

Fancy Art Show

Some of my watercolor illustrations are currently on display at the Eclipse Gallery in Algoma, WI.  This is the gallery's very first exhibit, so there was a definite feel of excitement at the opening night reception last Saturday.  I dragged my entire family along with me and there was plenty of wine, so everyone had a great time. 


I like wine.


My target audience.

The Eclipse Gallery exhibit

I will be one of five artists displaying work at the newly-opening The Eclipse Gallery in Algoma, Wisconsin.  The opening reception is on August 1, starting at 5:30 in the p.m.  I have a number of watercolor illustrations that will be at the show so, if you're somewhere in the area, try to stop by, won't you?  I think I'll drag along some Breathers comics and Birch books too, for good measure.

I don't usually (or ever) do gallery shows, but figured it was about time I embraced the idea. So, there you have it.

"Your Music Magazine" interview

"Your Music Magazine" is a free music magazine circulating around California.  An interview I did appears in this month's issue (which can conveniently be read online).   Give it a read.  I admit I probably spent too much time mulling over the questions asked, but my ramblings perfectly filled up the two-page spread.  Nice.

Breathers #4


It may have taken something like 6 long months to finish, but I have finally completed BREATHERS #4.  Copies are available for purchase in my ETSY SHOP, for those of you interested.  You can read some preview pages by going to my WEBSITE.

One more issue to go.  It feels good to know that I'll be working toward the completion of the entire book now.  I'm not sick of drawing gas masks yet, so I guess that's a good thing.

Breathers #4 update

I am in the inking stages of the fifth story for Breathers #4.  One more to go after that.  I really want to have the book completely finished by the end of this month.  That may require some serious ass-busting...but it could happen...really...it could...

I have also started a Facebook thang.  I know I'm like the last person to have one, but so what?  I'm still cool.  So, if you want to be Facebook friends, I'm down with that.  Word.

Breathers makes Comic Book Noise

Bruce R. talks about Breathers in this podcast.  Are they still called podcasts?  Well, whatever you wanna call it, you should give it a listen.
