Home, Home and Deranged

This is a new single panel I'm developing which will hopefully run in a paper in South San Francisco. Tentatively titled "Home, Home and Deranged" it is basically a re-working of the Boomerangs idea. As you will see I named the lead character Jamie (after one of my best friends) though I'm not sure if it will reamin to be so or not......
Let me know what you think.

Comic Con Pt. 2

This is rapidly becoming an addiction. I make me sick. Anyway, here are some more photos from comic con.....

The completion of my pin-up. Is that how I look when I'm satisfied?

Another day at the con with Me, Scott and the Atomic Bear himself....

Read the hat. Now that's just funny!

Here's Eric doing some art work for his upcoming comic Autumn.

And coming soon.....Costume Palooza!

Introducing...NO VACANCY

So I've decided to post the very first, never-before-seen comic from my new strip. Submitted for your pleasure (and/or mockery) I introduce "No Vacancy":

There will be many more to come as well as glimpses into my process and examples of various other projects I am currently working on. Hope you enjoyed this and I'll post again soon.

Comic Con 2006, just the beginning....

Well, I've finally cracked and started my own blog. I feel like such a poser...
Anyway, I feel as though this is my best way to continually communicate my progress as an artist (at least for the time being).
So for my first post I wanted to share with you some photos, or "memories" if you will, of the 2006 International Comic Convention in San Diego from which I have just returned.

Here we are, the group who traveled to San Diego to represent the Cartoon Art Museum of San Francisco. We are (from top to bottom; left to right) Self publisher Brian Kolm, writer/comic creator Martin Robaszewski and his wife Elsa, Me, one of my best buddies and comics fan extrodinaire Scott Tamanaha and comic creator/artist Eric Saxby.

Here I am drawing what will be a pinup-esque group shot of the cast of characters I have recently developed for a new comic strip.

What's comic con without toss'in back a few brews........

Seeing a few freaks (just kidding)........

and finding a nice piece of glass in your salad (no joke). Mmmmm.

Ok all, stay tuned for more photos as well as examples of new art I will be developing for your visual pleasure. Till next time....
I can't believe I started a blog...oy.
