Pressed Tongue

Thursday, August 1st, 2019


Homage to one of my all time favorite artists in the world of comics (or anywhere else)… Dave Cooper. This is my rendition of the cover to issue three of his book ‘Pressed Tongue’ published by Fantagraphics back in the ’90’s. Below is the original by Cooper.

Samson #1 by writer/artist Don Stephenson will be hitting the shelves in June. Don asked me to color the cover and the above is the result. I love Don’s artwork and it was really fun to color. Be sure to check it out next month! For further info about this and other great Sparkle Comics publications click here.

Captain America #107

Thursday, February 15th, 2018


Jack Kirby. Can you measure how much he contributed to the world of comics? Probably more than anyone in the history of the medium.

Here is my homage to The King. The expression on Cap’s face the same one I had upon hearing the news that my country had elected Donald Trump as president.

I try not to get too political on this site but he is the worst. Amongst the most racist, sexist, classist, ignorant humans that currently walk the Earth.

It is truly sad to think our friends and neighbors had a hand in getting him into a position of power.

We will survive his presidency but I fear there will be some lasting damage done by this entitled fear monger. I just beg everyone to realize he is wrong.

Hate is wrong.

Here is the original Kirby cover.

Crickets #4

Friday, January 26th, 2018


Crickets by cartoonist Sammy Harkham is easily the best ongoing comic series I have read in twenty years.

It’s not for everyone, but sometimes it genuinely feels like it was made just for me.

It looks like it could’ve been drawn yesterday or a hundred years ago (even though the story is set in the 1970’s).

It is big, magazine sized, and beginning with issue three tells the story of Seymour, a screenwriter working on the set of the b-movie ‘Blood of the Virgin’ who suddenly finds himself thrust into the position of the film’s director, a role he wasn’t ready for, to say the least.

Packed with great dialogue and characters, this is an amazing dark comedy by a master storyteller and cartoonist.

At times maniacal and at others subdued to the point of feeling oppressively quiet, Crickets is simply wonderful in a way few things ever have been.

I can’t say enough good things about it so I’d better just quit now.

The above is my recreation of the cover to issue four. Original cover by Sammy Harkham below.
