What kind of Pokémon are you?

Steve Wolfhard started a side-project a while back called "Portrait-dex", which is a blog collecting self-portraits of other cartoonists -- as Pokémon! I'm in love with the idea, and a while back I created my own Pokémon. Here she is!

Machine Of Death

You may have heard recently of a little science-fiction anthology climbing the Amazon bestseller charts to #1. The book, Machine Of Death, was the pet project of two very good friends of mine, Messrs. David Malki(!) & Ryan North (it was also co-edited by a Mr. Matt Bennardo, who I do not have the pleasure of knowing, but whose last name almost rhymes with mine).

In any case, David and Ryan reached out to some writers and artists with this idea of creating stories and illustrations based around a machine of death: a mechanism which tests your blood and then churns out a slip of paper telling you the cause of your eventual demise.

The premise may sound bleak (and I suppose it is), but don't let that fool you! Thar's pathos and love and humor in them pages!

Particularly dear to my heart is, of course, the story I illustrated: NOT WAVING BUT DROWNING by Erin McKean.


The story is available, read by Ms. McKean, as the first episode of the Machine Of Death Podcast! I highly recommend giving it a listen. I'm about to! And if you're interested, please consider buying a copy of Machine Of Death from Amazon or Topatoco! Let's keep this success story going!

The Walking Weapon (pts 1 & 2)

I had so much fun with The Walking Weapon that I decided to do a few comics with him! I plan on doing more; I'm really enjoying myself so far!

Page Fulla Gordons

My little dog, Commissioner Gordon, is surprisingly difficult for me to caricature (but it's a lot of fun to try)! Here's a bunch of sketches I did with my brush pen last night:

People I Know pt 1

I'm starting to get back into portraiture again! These are two friends of mine:

This guy is a talented composer (and my next-door neighbor):

And this fellow here is my favorite photographer, good friend, and snazzy beard-wearer:

Eventually these will become paintings, but I liked them as monochromatic drawings, so I thought I'd share! More to come!
