i’m bad at posting. This is a cover i did for the third printing of Black River #1. It was colored to be separated in CMYK…so it took me all day. I have to think about the colors and how they layer. This is why you go to college, I guess:
The colors are fairly vibrant because Woolly Press will un-saturate them in printing; is that a proper use of a semi colon?

I’m pretty busy trying to get something together for HeroesCon. I was thinking of doing an Ashcan kind of comic: a personal anthology. We’ll see.
I’ve been listening to the book-on-tape or The Name of The Wind and it’s been influencing my graphic novel, writing wise.
The BEST movie i’ve seen in a while was maybe Room…and maybe the best game I’ve played…that I still think about is Last of Us. Metal Gear: Ground Zeroes is the prettiest. I have not beaten it yet. I still need to play Peace Walker, but I prolly wont.!
All of these things have more to say, narratively, than (then) me…and it makes me sad. Maybe I need to get back into the woods.

This might be the only political comic I ever draw. I was just thinking today, on my bike ride to work, about the upcoming election. One way or another, I can still write in “Bernie Sanders”. I just hope I spell his name right.
I’ve spent the last few days re-writing the ends of Black Rivr and Juniper Black. I cant wait to show you the changes. However, it’ll all be new to you.
Buying a Playstation 4 was the death of my motivation on work days, to draw. I’ve also found that listening to books on tape at work make me re-think said plot lines.

Buying a Playstation 4 was my first big mistake of this year. I admit I haven’t been drawing as much as normal. I beat this amazing game called Life Is Strange. Square Enix put it out ant it’s pretty much consumed my life. Obviously I drew some fan art. I didn’t feel like coloring it.
I did feel like coloring this one, but i got a little intoxicated while i was inking it, yesterday.

I just found this drawing I did in an old folder on my desktop. I still like it a bunch. Just noticing I didnt sign it, though, so I’m not sure when I did it. Probably around 2006, maybe. I just wanted to throw it on here:

I was going through a stack of old drawings and found some stuff I did while living in the woods of Vermont. The ghostscouts can be lonely, i guess. A lot of the stuff I drew was naked ladies. When I say a lot, I mean, for fun. I drew over 60 pages of comics in 3 months. Almost four a day at my peak. If you read Black Rivr book two, those are they.
Last time I posted giant nekkid ladies, gossip edition. I found this one, also:
And then there’s this:
I thought up this comic a long time ago, but I drew it with Foam Breeze and Squatch Matrix because I was hanging out with them, constantly. I’m not sure if a ton of people will get this joke. You have to have seen Akira, or read the extensive and amazing Manga. Anyway:

I realized I havent blogged this month at all! That’s the opposite of what I wanted to do. I mostly blame the new Playstation4. Also, my graphic novel that I’ve been furiously doing pages for. I, sadly, left almost all my art pens at my parents’ house this weekend, so I had to just play video games this week (rats!).
This actually happened to me today:
My really good friend Emily was in town this weekend. She does beer review comics at Pints and Panels. So, when she comes into town I’m for sure going out with her and just letting her order everything and schmoozing. We drew each other at lunch:
Also, I was kicking around on Brandon Graham’s blog. It got me in the mood to draw some nekkid ladies. Which I did, but also, found this drawing i did in the woods back in 2014. I’d much rather share that. At the time I was drawing giant women hanging out on mountains and buildings and stuff. Then I had the thought “There’s gotta be big monsters banging all these cute ladies”:
