collaborative drawing

This is a collaborative drawing I did with Luke Ramsey a few years ago. We've only ever gotten to hang out one time, and this is what happened. I was happy to find this colored version of it online recently. Feels like a nice documentation of a great day.

I just signed a bunch of copies of Capacity that people ordered from my Etsy shop. I always draw a little character in the corner of the title page. It keeps things fun. They'll be shipped off in the morning. I'm thankful for all the supportI've ben getting! It keeps me going. Everything I do is for the mission, the mission is everything.

Portrait of a Timrick

I just put up another new limited edition print for sale on my Etsy Shop. Timrick's are one of my very favorite creatures to draw. One of these days I'll make a comic about them.

Missoula Made Fair

I'll be at the Made Fair all day this coming Sunday. It looks like it'll be a pretty exciting cross section of Missoula's creative community. I'll be there with new prints, woodcut originals, and other curiosities. Looking forward to it. This flyer image was made by the always awesome Courtney Blazon

To Be Continued...

Here's the piece I made for the Pony Club Gallery show. I decided to make a piece about continuation instead of visualizing an ending. Turn into an antlered werewolf and laugh, share a drink with your doppelganger, feed a sandwich to a monster, let out some ghosts. The Train keeps on going.

Pony Club Gallery group show

I made a piece for the End Of The World themed show curated by Keith Carter, opening Thursday the 6th at Pony Club Gallery in Portland, OR.

Sotokaramita magazine

I'm excited to be in this new Japanese art magazine, Sotokaramita. The editor, Graeme McNee started it as a vehicle for introducing western cartoonists to Japan. The other cartoonists included in this first issue are Dash Shaw, Gabrielle Bell, Aidan Koch, and Jeffrey Brown. Such great company! It was nice to have one of my drawings on the cover too!
