In the interest of saving time and being prepared, I try to work as far ahead as possible on any given project. Even though S/S was an eight-page pitch, I had initially planned to finish it on ACT-I-VATE, and in the interest of expediting that, I had written an additional 12 pages of script.

More than that, I decided to rework the entire beginning, in traditional comic proportions. After the cut is the script and the VERY NSFW (serious nudity) reworked pages.

Re-presenting my first foray into the Zuda Comics competition, Strangle/Switch. The basic premise of this story was: a schizophrenic musician named Geoff finds a guitar that gives him the power to kill people and was essentially a take on Faust. Simple enough, right?

Heads Up Display LP available now!

As many of my comic book cohorts know, I lead a double life. I'm not a cartooning mastermind chained to my drawing all of the time, suffering alone in my garret apartment. In reality, I've also been a musician for over 20 years, and for the last three, I've been the drummer in Heads Up Display.

Our new, eponymous LP produced by General George Fullan (Action Action, Taking Back Sunday) is now available exclusively at along with our two previous EP's.

The EP's are already available on iTunes, but if you purchase the records on Bandcamp, there may be some unlisted bonus material that will automatically download with the record proper.

I Rule the Night

What I'm working on today - nearing completion of I Rule the Night. Here is a small panel from the end of season 3 - and yes, it's in full, bright technicolor.

I've been seriously busy with deadline stuff and publisher upheavals lately, so it's been quite some time since I've drawn something I can post. So here's a M.O.D.O.K. I drew for myself at Baltimore Comic Con.

Grimm's Fairy Tales

As I've mentioned before, IDW is releasing an edition of Grimm's Fairy Tales, illustrated by me. It's very much not for kids. Cover and interior plates:

From the archives....

About a year ago, a director friend of mine asked me to do some designs for a film he was making about a killer Filipino demon baby.


A Filipino demon baby that eats people. It's actually a real legend, I think. Anyway, here's some concept art.



Hello again.

It's been quite some time since I've blogged with any semblance of regularity. The old blog was on Live Journal and I used it a lot when I was posting with ACT-I-VATE, but I got spoilt by Twitter over the past few years. Damn you, Twitter.

Lately, I've been doing a lot of one-off pieces and posting them on Twitter and Facebook, and will continue to do that, but I figure this is a better venue for that sort of thing.

In the interest of keeping people entertained, I will also be re-running older works from The Chemistry Set that have since fallen into the ether, as well as never-before-published sample art, pitches, REALLY old work from before I knew how to draw, and the like.

Assuming I don't get too distracted,  I'll update this at least once a week with new drawings, and once I start running stories, I'll do that several times a week.

This could get interesting. It could be embarrassing. But at least it'll be fun, right?

And for our inagural post...
