    Mousie and Chicken: Inktober drawings now a book

    I’m a few months late showing off my Inktober pictures, but I have more than just sketches: I made a whole BOOK! A real, physical, hold-it-in-your-hands and hopefully spend money on it book! And you can buy it! Mousie and Chicken has all my themed Inktober 2018 drawings (there were a few days when I […]

  • Tilling the fallow field

    Tilling the fallow field

    The rains started this week, and so did Inktober, and art. I’m learning to accept the fact that I don’t really make new art in the summer.

What is showing new growth, and […]

  • Capitol City Press Tour

    Capitol City Press Tour

    Yesterday I went to the Capitol City Press open house with my day job office. Cap City is an awesome employee-owned more-than-full-service print shop, and they’ve added quite a few new capabilities since I was last there. The tables for the catered lunch were made of falcon board, ¬†which is basically corrugated cardboard’s much beefier […]
