After We Shot the Grizzly

This new mini-comic is my adaptation of one of my favorite songs by The Handsome Family. The words are the lyrics to the song of the same title from their Last Days of Wonder LP (with songs about Nikola Tesla, bowling alley bars, ghosts and falling in love with strangers at airports it is a great record start to finish).

In case you’re unfamiliar, The Handsome Family is Brett and Rennie Sparks. Rennie writes the lyrics, Brett writes the music and they both sing and play.

So, last year I wrote to Rennie Sparks to ask her permission to do this comic and to my delight she responded, “Go for it!” so off I went and did it!

Now it’s done and is $3 postpaid to anywhere in North America. Send well concealed cash to the address at the bottom of this page for this thirty page black and white mini-comic with full color cover.

Also, for some truly great music that some describe as American Folk or Country Gothic (I just call it awesome!) visit the Handsome Family’s website here.

UPDATE:
So, I just found out this wasn’t a new idea. A cartoonist from the UK by the name of Dan Berry already did it… and did it much better. I guess it’s true “There’s nothing new under the sun.”
Check out an example of Dan’s fantastic work here.

When I was ten or twelve I drew lots of stuff. Mostly skulls and wrestlers and ninjas and animals with guns.

This is a book of 30 pages of just that, culled from a pile of my drawings I recently unearthed that somehow survived for the last quarter century in my Mom’s basement.

I’m proud to say, looking through this collection the only thing that gives me a similar feeling is flipping through a Rob Liefeld comic.

So I guess that’s a win.

The Cash

I’ve recently began working on my first graphic novel. It’s a very different format for someone used to doing mini-comics and comic strips as it requires waiting until you’ve done over a hundred pages of art before you get any reader feedback. So I’ve decided to release a limited run of each chapter as a mini-comic (the first of which I just finished) in hopes of getting an idea whether or not this thing is going to have an audience.

It’s a story set in the late 1800’s in my hometown of Dayton, Ohio and centers around two brothers, John and Frank Patterson, struggling with the decision of what they are going to make of themselves. This first chapter depicts the beginnings of their journey as it is wrought with risks and pitfalls. This is indeed a true story that I’ve found fascinating for awhile and felt it worthy of taking the time to share with others who may not be familiar.

This first chapter (titled The Purchase) is a 22 page black and white comic with a color cover and a sticker price of $4 (postpaid in the United States). Originally I had planned on debuting it at Appleseed Con, but it looks like it will be sometime in June. If you’d like to pre-order a copy you can send payment to the address at the bottom of this page or to my paypal account which is veggiedogsaturn@gmail.com

Below is a sample page from the first chapter depicting the Patterson brothers’ frustration after realizing the business they just purchased isn’t as solid as they were led to believe.

Behemoth 2014

A few years ago I did a silkscreen print of this here sea beast (which you can see here). Although it was kind of cool looking, it certainly didn’t turn out like I’d hoped (most of the detail was lost in the printing process due to my not using a screen with a high enough thread count).

Anyway, I’ve decided to put out the version I’d always wanted to see so I did what George Lucas would do and digitally rendered the colors and made this 11″ x 17″ digital print which you can purchase from me. I’ll have them for sale for $6 at the Small Press Alternative Comics Expo (S.P.A.C.E.) on April 12th and 13th. If you’re within a day’s drive of Columbus you should definitely attend as there are all manor of talented artists and writers there. Check out the details for the show here.
