Group Show @ Giant Robot New York

I have 3 pieces in the big group show coming up at the Giant Robot Gallery in New York, NY! It's an all cartoonists show to go along with the independent comics festival called MoCCA that's happening the first weekend in June. Some of my favorite comic artists are in the art show, so it's pretty exciting to be a part of it. The contributing artists were each asked to do a 1x1 inch portrait for the show card (mine is in the lower right corner). Folks attending the opening get first dibs on pieces, but the show will be up for sale on-line soon after at .

In other news, my publisher, Secret Acres will be debuting their 4th book at MoCCA (my book was their 3rd) it's a collection of comics called PS Comics, by the awesome cartoonist Minty Lewis. I've been enjoying her self-published work for awhile now, so I'm very excited to get my copy! You'll be able to find it at

art show

My friend Sean Christensen is curating the new show at Guapo Comics and Coffee. It gave me an excuse to play around with my new scroll saw and make a Foo Dog out of cut wood. It was a lot of fun! If you can make it to the show opening, it should be a fun time. A bunch of my favorite local artists/friends are in the show, and Guapo is one of my favorite haunts.

work in progress

I've been working on the album art for Ramona Falls (the solo project of Brent Knopf of the band Menomena) The album will come out sometime in August and it's great! The above images are a small section of the art that will be in the pull-out booklet. I'll show you more as the release date gets closer

diary comic guest spot

For some reason I can't get the above comic to post any larger than this here, but you can view a legible version at the link below.

My friend Jesse Reklaw started keeping a diary comic. He's doing one page a day for a year as a personal experiment. Recently though, he decided he needed help keeping up with it all, so he asked 7 different friends to each fill in for a day as part of his Diary Guest Week Extravaganza! He has a guest appearance in everyone's pages so far. It was fun! I guess Jesse has been getting some slack for the thing I quoted him saying though. Sorry Jesse! The thing that Heather's uncle says is really an exact quote. Yes, I was scared.

more weekends!

I'm usually down at the Portland Saturday Market on the weekends selling my work, but this weekend I just couldn't get myself to go. It was amazing to have a real weekend! Heather and I went to a coffee shop and I worked on some small drawings for my upcoming show at the Giant Robot Gallery while she studied.
We met Batgirl at the coffee shop. She was really nice.Afterwards, we went walking through the graveyard around the corner. we found some beautiful, sad stuffed animals that had been left there to keep departed people company. Look at the moss covered Winnie the Poo!
It's a good time of year to look at the ground a lot while walking.
It's also a good time of year to ride bikes along the river after dark.
