Gwar was the first concert I ever saw. I was 14. Ended up seeing them 5 more times over the years. Safe to say them and specifically Dave Brockie’s humor had a huge effect on me and mine. Though I didn’t know him personally, Dave was one of my absolute favorite people in the music biz or entertainment world. Always on. Always hilarious and creative in his output. He will be missed.

Witchcraft the Conjuring

So after working at a comic book shop for two decades I decided to make a mini-comic parodying the experience (especially a certain collectible card game that we sold). The result is Witchcraft the Conjuring, a 28 page comic that depicts the true life tragedy that can happen when an insidious card game infects a mild mannered comic book shop.

When I finished it I showed the cover to my pal Eric who said he thought he could add some tweaks here and there. What he did was amazing… I’m so happy with the way the cover turned out (especially if you compare it with my version).

Regular version available for $4 postpaid to the address at the bottom of this page (or by paypal to veggiedogsaturn@gmail.com )

Also available as a Collector’s Edition featuring sharp corners (as opposed to the rounded regular edition) and hand signed and numbered from an extremely limited edition of only 7 copies (featuring a full color Witchcraft the Conjuring trading card drawn on the inside front cover) for only $10 ea!

Here’s a sample interior page for your enjoyment:

Chapel

This is a character created by Rob Liefeld, drawn by Eric Shonborn and colored by me.

This was super fun for me to do for two reasons. First because I sincerely love Liefeld’s character designs and second because this is the first time I’ve colored a piece of Eric’s art (he’s colored plenty of mine).

Check out more of Eric’s sweet ink and (occasionally) colored pixels here.

Pinoy Komiks

This is the first page of a comic I did for an upcoming charity book for victims of the typhoon that destroyed much of the Philippines in November 2013.

It’s being put together by Adam Pasion who did the Aftershock benefit anthology in 2011 for victims of the tsunami and earthquake in Japan and features many great cartoonists from various countries including, of course, the Philippines.

Here is a link to the Kickstarter page (which due to a strange rule about doing charity work on their page you can no longer actually mention that it’s for charity… but trust me, it is).

Help a good cause and read some good comics at the same time… what could be better?

This guy had a sad face. And wrote poetry. You’ve probably read some.

I’m done posting portraits for now. I’m still doing them though and you can purchase one of the ones I’ve done or commission me to do whoever you want. Anybody, famous or not.

They’re roughly 3.5″ x 3.5″ and $10 postpaid to anywhere in the United States. If you’re interested just send your money to the address at the bottom of this page or paypal me at veggiedogsaturn@gmail.com

Thanks!
