mystery Postcard doodling

 Hanging out with my friend Sam Kulla earlier this month I ended up adding some doodles to a post card he was sending to his Aunt and Uncle. It doesn't say who it's from anywhere. Hopefully they found it perplexing and delightful.

Antidote #7

From a series of Mind-Medicine drawings for Gridlords. These are all drawn in ink with no pre-planning. Making them is both relaxing and therapeutic for me. At some point I'll collect them all into an Art Zine.

Flying bus collaborative drawing

I did a whole series of collaborative drawings with with my friends while I was in Seattle for the Short Run Comics Festival. This one was with Sean Christensen, Stefan Gruber, Andrice Arp, and Vida Rose. Everyone just starts something, then we pass them around until they feel done. It's a good time!

Missoula Made Fair!

Tomorrow (Sunday, December 8th) I'll be setting up a table at the Missoula Made Fair from 11am-6pm at the Adams Center. I'll have new woodcuts, comics, art zines, books, prints, and cards for sale. If you're somewhere nearby, come say hi, it should be an excellent event.  I'll be up in the balcony at table 126!


I just started an Instagram page for posting random, spontaneous shots of stuff done on the fly and works in progress. Check it out if you feel like it. I'll probably post a couple of quick shots of things every time I'm in my studio.

Collaborative art

This is a collaborative drawing I did with my good friends Sean Christensen, Andrice Arp, and Stefan Gruber when I was in Seattle for Short Run this weekend. This one was later colored on the computer by Andrice.
