Prints and Drawings Store

When I was a kid I had a bad habit of not turning in my homework. Sometimes that was because I didn't do it in the first place, but just as often it was because once it was done the box in my brain got checked and I'd forget it at home or lose it. Over the last several years I have on occasion done prints of my work for shows or because someone was interested in an image but couldn't afford to buy an actual painting. I moved last Spring and found that my cabinet of flat files needed lightening. So I am now turning in my homework. Just in time for Christmas. Help me lighten my flat files.

Demons in the Spring

I'm doing a reading and slide show this Friday at 7:30 at the Book Cellar here in Chicago (4736 North Lincoln) for the release of the paperback of Joe Meno's Demons in the Spring. Also reading are Joe himself, and two of the other (brilliant) illustrators in the book, Nick Butcher and Jon Resh. I'll be doing a couple of stories about gods, one of whom has a peculiar revelation while walking around in Wisconsin. In keeping with the theme of my illustrations for the book, the theme of my primary contribution is aquatic. Below are two of the accompanying slides.

The end of the line

The last issue of Big Questions is at the printer, and is supposed to be out in time for the Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival, December 4th. In honor of the end, here's a glimpse of the beginning. This was in the first issue.
