snow story

I finally finished my 10 page piece for the upcoming Snow Stories anthology that Mike Getsiv is editing. I'm probably the very last contributor to complete their work for this. Sorry Mike!! It looks like a great line up of cartoonists, so it's without a doubt going to be a great book!

cat on drawing table

I use to try to keep my drawing table off limits to my cat, Mortimer. But I finally gave in when I realized how much he likes to hang out as close to my drawings as possible and simply watch what I'm doing. He's great company. Mortimer has probably hung out on top of nearly every one of my drawings at some point or another.
This is one of the first panels to my new comic. This mouse is very brave. Here's the panel that comes directly after that first one. It's all mostly top secret right now, but I'll be showing more bits and pieces as I go.

half finished neighborhood

Today I drew some dirt, grass, and some tiny abandoned cars.
It's a picture that I started a few weeks back and have been adding details here and there at random.

Sketch book drawings

It's good to have a nice small sketchbook on hand at all times. It makes moments of waiting suddenly fun! I hand bound this tiny book at JournalFest. During the one day that I wasn't teaching I got to take a bookbinding class from Daniel Essig. He was a great instructor! I want to hand bind all my sketchbooks from now on. Check out his beautiful hand made books at

collaborative art show

I'm part of a collaborative art show that's opening tonight At Floating World Comics in downtown Portland. When Luke Ramsey From Island's Fold was in town a few months back, we got together with awesome artists Sean christensen, Blaise Larmee, and Kinoko and had an amazing afternoon of collaborative drawing in a coffee shop. Luke put it all together and documented the occasion in a new Island's Fold publication. All the pieces we made that day will be on display at Floating World for the rest of the month!
