Not The Highlight of My Career

May 10th, 2014

I was recently reminded of a job I sorta bungled a year or so ago. I’ll spare you all the gory details (contract problems) but here’s the result, a find-the-hidden-pictures puzzle loosely based on the Hall of Dinosaurs at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History that won’t see print. So, just for fun, can you find the tweezers, scissors, eyeglasses, teacup, pliers, spool of thread, plunger, comb, spatula, feather, slice of pie, cupcake, football, hockey stick, band-aid, apple core, ant, wishbone, crown, ice cream pop, party hat, leaf, golf club, chopsticks and a ruler?

An Untitled Story About an Apple Tree

April 26th, 2014

This story first appeared in the EXPO 2001 (SPX) anthology. It’s untitled but is about an apple tree. And apples. And a farmer. And worms. FYI: It’s maybe not safe for work depending on where you work. You decide. Enjoy!

Timberdoodle

My Ignatz-nominated mini-comic from 1999. Just FYI, it is probably not safe for work, minors, those easily annoyed or anyone really. Enjoy!

Cringe-Worthy!

March 19th, 2014

Here’s another thing I done did. It’s the cover art for an anthology of comics published by Birdcage Bottom Books! It should be out in time for SPX, whenever that is! Soon, I’ll bet!

Last Weeks in Next Week in NYC!

February 28th, 2014

Here is the last handful NWinNYC! comics. I’ll be putting the strip on hiatus for a while to focus on bigger problems. I mean projects, of course, but more on that later. I enjoyed doing these strips for The NY Observer and hope to do some more in the future. But these are the last of them for now so read ‘em slow. And if you find yourself jonesing for some Big Apple humor, you can always score a copy of If New York City Was The World. It’s a collection of strips about the city that never sweeps, and a sort of precursor to NWinNYC! that ran in a Manhattan neighborhood paper back way back when those kinda things still existed. But the humor contained with in is as fresh as a NYC breeze. It’s way out of print but you can actually get a signed copy from me through Amazon. In the meantime, enjoy!

A Public Service Announcement…

February 26th, 2014

It looked like the snow was melting and we were over the hump of winter but it’s snowing again and there’s another major snowstorm forecast for the first week in March. So, just in case, here’s a comic I did for NICKELODEON Magazine some years ago. It could come in handy.

A Petey & Pussy Flashback

February 23rd, 2014

Back in 1998 I made a small mincomic with the original P&P strips. This was the cover.

The mini also contained a couple of crude flipbook animations on the edges, one each of Petey and Pussy. Here’s the Petey one all giffied up. SPOILER ALERT!!: Looking at this could spoil your day. Please don’t look at it if you are easily disturbable, annoyingly oversensitive or young and impressionable. But if it’s the kind of thing you can handle, then you may want to read the early P&P strips on my old steam-powered website, Fontanelle Press. Click around, you’ll find them (second cherub from the top) or something else interesting.

And if you actually find the gif or the strips entertaining then you should definitely pick up a copy of my 2008 Eisner-Award nominated P&P graphic novel. Currently available here for pretty cheap.
