Well, I was hoping to post this last friday, but as I was nearly done typing
out this elaborate, epic blog, my page refreshed and I lost everything. I should’ve
known better. Anyway, I’ll try to do a better job of posting this on
blogger or livejournal as well as on myspace. A lot of people complain
that I post on myspace…
hmm… It’s been a while since I last posted. Frankly, the more time passes
(between blogs)the less I feel like posting. Shit, I think the last time
was before summer kicked off.
I’d write about my summer, but there was far too much going on.
From the gazillion freelance projects I took on, to my California trip,
Uberjam, Wizard World and after party.. and so on. At this point I
really can’t think of everything that happened…I do have a bunch of new artwork. Most of what I’ve been working
on you will probably won’t see any time soon. But It’ll be worth the wait.

I’ve noticed the blog has been getting quite a few hits although
the updates have been lacking. Awresome!

I’ve been feeling a little burnt again. I’m not
salty. Just a little tired. Honestly,
I’m really excited about what I’ve been working
on. Next year is what’s up.


Trying not to push it too much, but I gotta make up for
the meager output of the last few years.
So, on to the art.
A little theme music, please?

I’ll start with some commissions done at Wizard World.
I was set up with Mike Huddleston, Mike Bianco, and
Jim Mahfood. My crew is better than yours.

Before the convention, I started working on drawings to sell
at my table (since I didn’t have any print material available)


Douchebag from The Wizard

Donkey Kong

Super Mario Bros. 2

Wonder Woman
The afterparties we held this year (Friday at Darkroom,
Saturday at The Black Beetle) were off the chain. This
thing gets bigger every year. Thanks to everybody who came
through to kick off the dance party.
Big up- Pickel, Intel, Elevation, J.Lee, Mahf
Huddleston, Food One, Bianco, Carl, Blaylock

If you weren’t there, you missed the debut of
DJ Cluepac

a/k/a Cluepeezy, ?Pac, Cloopdog, Cloopay Fyasko, Macluevelli

back from the dead to solve mysteries.
on the dj table….
Don’t want to get into it just yet, but I just wanted to
show off designs from a couple original
concepts I’m working on…

Sheila, Scott, Johnny, Mr. Cruz and Carl

Davey Wurst and Afro-Brites
I’ll keep you posted as news develops
(plus a few additional weeks/months/years)
AAAnd lastly, I’m sure you all remember

…Teen Heaven?
The first chapter will be done soon (I swear!)
Rather than putting out a 168 page black and white graphic novel,
I will be serializing it (about quarterly) over the next couple years.
It will be in full color. And as it stands, free.
Online. Unless somebody offers a deal I can’t refuse.
I’m dying to get this story done and out. I jut couldn’t deal with rushing
this out just to meet a deadline (and for little to no cash)
When I started working on it in 04, I found myself having to cut

much of the story in order to meet the deadline/page count.
I’ve had more ideas since then, so a limitless page count is exactly
what I need at this point….
MYSPACE EXCLUSIVE!!!!!!

Right click and save while supplies last!!!!!!Teen Heaven will be serialized in .Smileytower.,
an online mag that will also feature Deeds and
other art/stories
from me.


I’m hoping to launch it January 1st, 2008.
no. I WILL launch it 01/01/08
I’ll keep you in the know. Cuz I love you.

IHP 103- NYC, Mad, and other goodness

RANTLERS! BILLIONS OF UM! WHOAH!!!!!
New York was the shit. Thanks to Actual Fact for putting us up in his
crib. Thanks to Pickel for his massive hustle to put us on at the
Showroom. Peace to the Formula Crew, Sket, Jim Koch, The Mimobot
gang, Brook, Jen, Jim, Sara Martin, Static, Joe M, Whitney and Kirby,
and all you knuckleheads I kicked it with. NYC is lovely, and I’ll have to
go back.
Why do I suck at taking photos? I got this fucking digital camera (which
I bought mostly for phot ref and snapping pics of textures)
Anyway, here’s what I took of my trip…

Chack! I saw him at the end of the night, and he was kind enough to
add to the mural…

That was a helluva night.

The day before I left for NY, I was called by Mad mag to provide the art
for a two page article called ” Mad’s Teacher Translation Guide”. It’s
all done (was up past 5:30 am last night finishing it) and I’ll post the
issue and date as soon as I know.
Since I haven’t posted much art lately, I figured I’d post sketches from
the last Mad article I did, from the Feb. 07 issue.








If you want to see the final art, cop that ish from your local bookstore…
