Leaving the Planet
The above watercolor illustration is one of about 20 of mine that will be on display in January at Joe Bar in Seattle (810 E Roy St, in Capitol Hill). The show, titled “Leaving the Planet” (doesn’t that sound nice right about now??), has its opening reception on Jan. 12 from 6 to 9 p.m.,Continue reading “Leaving the Planet”
Geraldine Brooks at McCaw Hall
I’m drawing occasional “graphic recaps” this year for Seattle Arts & Lectures’ events. The above is my encapsulation of a talk given by Geraldine Brooks at the end of January.
(Partly) Sunny Days Ahead
Here’s an illustration I did for City Arts’ “future list” issue (January 2016), with my own tongue-in-cheek “suggestions, acknowledgements, and predictions for the future of Seattle.” A couple of these references will only resonate with my fellow Seattlites: “Bertha,” for instance, is the name of an enormous tunnel-boring drill that’s been stuck underground for mostContinue reading “(Partly) Sunny Days Ahead”

Dune is a monthly comics anthology zine, orchestrated by Max Clotfelter and created in the span of a single evening at Seattle’s Cafe Racer (the third Tuesday each month). Here’s the wraparound cover I drew for the 35th issue, created in September and published & distributed to the participants in October, 2015.

Ezzie and Pru
Sometimes I do commissioned comics. This one above was created for Wendy and Patrick Nazzaro and features their two cats, Ezzie and Pru, commenting on the art on display in their home.
Bowlin’ with The Blob
This comic ran in The Stranger in February 2015.
The Cloud King
With the days getting increasingly shorter, it seems like a good time to post this cover I drew for The Stranger in 2004, timed to run just a couple weeks before the winter solstice. (Also, George W. Bush had just been re-elected, which made the already-dark days feel even less cheery.)
