I got paid to be in an upcoming horror anthology. Here is one of my very Aragones inspired pages. My son and I came up with the idea while talking about how awesome Mad Marginals are (he had just read some of the old Mad paperbacks).

I was drawing hulk the other day, trying to find my own “take” on him. I will keep working at it.

If you ever collaborate with me… you may get a text once in awhile with this kind of sketchbook gold in it.

God Hates Astronauts creator Ryan Brown commissioned me to draw one of his characters, I told him I would try to find a character from GHA that nobody ever draws him. I rocked this bad boy out! I think he loved it.

UPDATE: I’ve been collaborating with a really good writer friend (I will not name names, yet.) And he’s about 20 pages into the scripting (we are shooting for 80). For the past month and a half I have been sketching the main characters, and having a blast…. the elevator pitch for this book is great. It will hook you in right away. So I finally found some time to work on the actual comic pages the other day. And unlike my usual process, I tried drawing a thumbnail first… the final page looks nothing like that thumbnail, but it was refreshing to get the bad idea out of the way before hitting the actual page. Anyways, I finished the page and was in shock of how awesome it looked, I shared it with the writer, whose reaction was, “Oh damn, son! That’s awesome!”… which is what my reaction was. It’s like we share a brain. We were meant to work together. So, I am soooo excited that I had to post something, I didn’t feel like I should post the whole first page without the writers permission (seems like he would want to be the one to announce everything). So here is the first panel of the first page. Enjoy.

Some things I drew for Punching the Clock that have taken a long time to see the light of day (not that this blog is the light of day, by any stretch of the imagination).

I am back from C4! Did I do okay?.. Let’s just say I sold more Fail books than I have all my others combined in the past couple years. So, yeah.. Fail is doing good for me. 

Don’t have it yourself? Buy it on Amazon.
