We've had our first big snow of the winter here in sunny (*cough*) VT, so I felt this was something anyone up north could sympathize with.

Aghast: a dream comic

I enjoyed the dream comic assignment, despite the fact that it interfered with a shit ton of other stuff I needed to do. I've been keeping dream journals for over 10 years. It's good to know that when I suffer from cartoonists' block, I've got a huge backlog of bizarre stories already outlined.

Also, that lady with dark hair totally looked like Sandra Bullock.

 The Miss Maryland competition was being held in the next room at SPX. It was a little surreal to see bleached beauty-queens milling around the lobby next to the Converse-clad-cartoon-crowd (thank you, gods of alliteration).  It made me really proud to be wearing the badge I was wearing. 

Although, if a fight had broken out between the two crowds, that would have been epic.

Some guys, including Dash Shaw and Seth, both of whom gave great presentations to my class. Then there's some guys and a rat.

The above is the cover to a 24-page comic I did as my final project for the spring '09 semester at CCS. I wasn't crazy about the finished product, but I really like how my cover came out. I enjoyed drawing the characters, though (the comic was a fantasy taking place in the old west, hence the name of the town). I may revisit them.

Thanksgiving Hell Comic

The above comic was done for a class assignment last year, requiring a 9-panel grid, four pages and using panels from "Wally Wood's 22 panels that always work". I ended up really liking these characters and I've just finished inking the first issue of a 10-page comic about them. Some of the stuff from this four-pager is repeated. I think I'm going to make it into a series.

Examples of my graphic design work. These are all labels I designed for JJ Twister Sports Bars, made and sold by one of my co-workers. I've done T-shirt and logo designs for him as well. All the lettering is custom.

Some sketches

Here's a few recent sloppy sketches. Most of them have stuff on the other side of the paper, which is why there's gray blobs and such. The scribbly stuff on the bottom represents both myself and my pal (and incredible cartoonist) Mo Oh. The dude is John Porcellino, who makes me want to draw kitties. So I drew kitties. We also have deadly underwear lady (which Matt Aucoin says are the best kind) and Zombie-killing midwest-mom.

How's about a post in this here bloggy contraption? Tarnation! This is just a pic from my sketchbook. Started coloring it. Colorist's block.
