Second page of the pinball comic.
It’s New Year’s Eve, and I’m entirely sick with the flu — so, I won’t be participating in any of the activities depicted above. I will, however, be writing some new year greetings on the backs of postcards that feature this robot party.
Here’s the cover and “centerfold” for Odd Birds, a mini-sketchbook I made earlier this month for the Seattle small press festival Short Run.
Here’s an illustration I did this month for City Arts, a monthly magazine in Seattle that covers the local art, music, and theater scene. The above drawing is my take on what it feels like at times walking around my city.
In honor of the coming month, here’s the back cover to Urban Hipster #1. When it seemed as though Urban Hipster might be a much more regular series than it turned into, my plan was to do a different monochromatic back cover for each issue, with the color choice somehow reflecting the mood or content of the story.
When I first started drawing with watercolors a couple years ago, I briefly got obsessed with drawing postcards like the ones above — nine characters laid out in three rows of three, drawn fairly spontaneously and rapidly, without any kind of plan. Above are a few of the ones that turned out best.
A Dwarf Attack strip from 2002.
Here’s a couple more cards I drew a while back for Paper Route Greetings. These are a little corny, yes, but I think the images are charming enough to override the cheese factor.
This is another comic from my strip Dwarf Attack that, at the time, seemed to make sense, and now ten years later is sort of baffling. I think Yes and No are supposed to be trees.
