No Scam! This Week…

Those close to me know the reason why. Let’s just say that kicking
Death in the bone does not keep him away from your loved ones
(see last week’s Scam!)
I will leave you with this:


Hope you have a good weekend.

much love,

Scam! 06/08/06

Yes, it has been two months.

I stopped working on these strips when my dad passed in April.
From that, I had a ton of work that I needed to catch up on. The
whole time, I wondered how I would return to the strip. A tribute to
dad? (There will be one) A humerous adventure not featuring me,
but my funny animal characters (there is one half done funny animal
Scam! strip which I will finish soon) Nope. The past month has been
a bit of an awakening for me. After a year plus of being in a funk,
I’ve opened my eyes to all that’s good in my life. Art shows, kick
ass friends, the city of Chicago, and other personal things I won’t get
into here. I finally feel like I could let go of the past I so desperately
clinged to. I’ve accepted change, and appreciate what I have. Yeah,
the shit sounds fuckin corny (and it is), but it lifts my spirits. So fuck

That’s pretty much what I address in the new strip. Kicking the shit
out of the things that give me a headache. Takin’ care of bid’nizz.

Summer’s here! Surf’s up, meetches!

June 3rd photos, art and love

Holee shiit. What a weekend.
All I can say is, if you missed the show on Saturday you will
never forgive yourself. I will never forgive you. At least not
until you get the chance to see the lovely Jean Grae and
turntable wizard Z-Trip live. The whole night seemed to pass
in the blink of an eye. Probably one of the highlights of my life.
Peace to those who made it out and showed love.
Thanks to Z-Trip, Jean Grae, Pugslee Atomz, Dynamic
Vibrations for rocking the house.
Thanks to Greenweedz for hosting.
Thanks to Pickel, Intel and Maker aka Come-Up Kings.
Thanks to my partner in art crime, Revise.

Thanks to everyone who helped get everything together.
And most of all, thanks to Sang. This man busted his ass to get
us up on stage, bring in the hot performers and bring you all a
party to remember.
Intel, you could stop hurling those Red Bulls
at me now…

Masters about to work. Intellionaire left, Pickallian Stallion

Look at that crowd…

Revise doing his thing. like the brush and paint thing….

Happy Birthday Deejay Intel

I always forget to take photos during these shows.
Someone needs to install some kind of camera-eyeball into
my head. Fortunately these folks took better pics:
The weather is beautiful and life is grand!

Figured I’d post some sketches, character designs, etc. I usually do these while my slow work computer saves these ginormous image files. Some of it is Deeds stuff.
I’m off to Milwaukee tonight with Intel and Pugs. Should be fun.

Have a good weekend.
