Garden Party!

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

On Saturday May 7th We Care Arts will be hosting a Garden Party from 10 am until 2 pm here in Kettering, Ohio.

I won’t be there as it is Free Comic Book Day and therefore will be handing out free comics at Mavericks. But if you’re in the area you should totally make a day out of it and visit We Care AND Mavericks!

Pick up some stuff for a Mother’s Day gift (which is the very next day)!

I painted this flower pot featuring my favorite Dark Lord of the Sith that will be for sale at We Care on the 7th.

Squad Car

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

Recently my friend Eric reminded me that it has been awhile since I posted anything to this blog.

To remedy that I present to you a comic I did for my friend Joseph Tenney of Capricorn Comix out of North Carolina.

He created Squad Car and asked me to do a short comic about the character. I convinced him to let me do an origin story and had a blast doing so! There are only 20 copies of this comic in existence so I figured I’d post it here in case you missed it.

Slinging Some Comics in Lakewood

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

Last weekend was Genghis Con in scenic Lakewood, Ohio and I went there to sell some comics and become a millionaire. Above you can see the sweet show space that was on the second floor of an old warehouse called the Lake Erie Building.

My pal Nate McDonough was there…

As were the fellas from Cowboy House. Here we see Fred Frances and Mike Madsen wondering where their cohort Jeff Gibbons wandered off to this time (probably to score some crack in the parking lot).

Here’s me with a sweet old car that was just hanging out there.

And here’s a shot of my table and neighbors. On the Left is Joe Kuth and that’s John Bailey on the right. Talked with both about music for awhile during the show. Nice guys and swell cartoonists too.

Had a good time hanging out at the show and traveling with my pal Eric. So much great artwork and awesome cartoonists in one place. Looking forward to next year’s show!

This morning I hung out at DATV while my friend Matt Brassfield did some video editing for his horror show Baron Von Porkchop’s Terrifying Tales of the Macabre!

Matt talks about werewolves almost every time I see him… which is awesome.

If you’d like to read his thoughts on all manner of subject (including werewolves) visit his fantastic blog Rotten Ink.

Freida Warther

Back in April of this year I visited the Warther Museum in Dover,Ohio. The focus of the museum was Ernest “Mooney” Warther’s amazing hand carved trains and tools but also there is his wife Freida’s button collection. There are more than 70,000 of them on display in patterns lining the ceiling and every wall in her “button house” (50,000 of them being unique) and it’s pretty amazing.
If you ever get the chance to visit the museum I highly recommend it. There’s a tree made of pliers!!!
