Here’s a close-to-the-final version of a poster I drew & designed this year for the annual reading put on by Writers in the Schools, one of the organizations for which I teach.
I’ve been fortunate of late to get a few comics published in City Arts magazine. This one — a satirical take on baffling behavior in Seattle — is called “I Do Not Understand You” and ran the August 2013 issue.
Taken in sequence there’s a story here, I guess. The main character seems to be late for the aerobics class he’s enrolled in.
One of the organizations I teach comics through is Seattle Arts & Lectures’ Writers in the School program. In 2011 I drew the poster for WITS’ year-end reading; you can see both the rough and finished art above. (This isn’t, though, the printed version, which was colored and rearranged a bit).
On May 21 I participated in a really fantastic reading at The Richard Hugo House called “Writers Get to the Powerpoint.” Each reader presented 20 slides for 20 seconds apiece (the ‘Pecha Kucha’ format). Above you can see about half of the drawings I did for my piece — “My Demons.”
I haven’t posted this Stranger cover from 2010 before, but it’s still one my favorite drawings that I’ve ever done.
