Brushfire Cover Reveal!

July 25th, 2021 My squirrels! I am beyond excited to finally reveal the cover for my upcoming all-ages (yes, this one is for everybody!) graphic novel, Brushfire. I’ve been working on this story for a long time (and as you can see, it’s titled Wave 1, which means that it’s just the beginning of aContinue reading “Brushfire Cover Reveal!”

Heartbreak Weather

July 15th, 2021 I’m still on the Old Chicago email list. For more than a few months, when I’d open one, I would feel heartbreak for what I lost. After a while, though, I would start to feel a new kind of heartbreak; I’d think of all the things I would have never experienced ifContinue reading “Heartbreak Weather”

Tangled

July 14th, 2021 There was a fun anniversary yesterday that I kept thinking on but never got around to posting about. On July 13th, 2003, I had my high school graduation party, and The Next Step released their first EP, called Tangled Cords. I know 18 years seems like a random and not very seminalContinue reading “Tangled”

Interview: Noggin Comics at Issues Needed in Apple Valley

July 11th, 2021 Who has a brand new interview for your eyes and ears to behold? Why, we do! If you’ve never met Nora and Kyle (otherwise known as Noggin Comics), then you’re missing out on the sweetest duo in our comic community. They have been nothing but kind and insightful since I met themContinue reading “Interview: Noggin Comics at Issues Needed in Apple Valley”

Visible At Night

July 5th, 2021 Whenever I felt invisible, my mom used to remind me I wasn’t. That sounds stupid to say, but it’s true, and now on days when I feel invisible sometimes I worry I won’t be found by anybody. It is very easy to look up at the sky and be impressed by aContinue reading “Visible At Night”

Hot Weirdo Summer: Limited Edition Print

July 3rd, 2021 I don’t sell a lot of original art or prints, but I wanted to do something fun (and I wanted to draw my crew!) for my upcoming event on July 21st at Issues Needed in Apple Valley. So here it is: “Hot Weirdo Summer,” a limited-edition print I’ll have available at theContinue reading “Hot Weirdo Summer: Limited Edition Print”

Morphin’ Time

June 26th, 2021 GEEKING. OUT. (Politely, of course.) It’s no secret that my pop culture influences are deep, vast, and embedded in my DNA. But few can call themselves legitimate cornerstones of my youth, and Power Rangers is definitely that. When I was a young(er) dude, my dad took me to meet Walter Jones, theContinue reading “Morphin’ Time”

Everywhere You Look

July 20th, 2021 It’s been brought to my attention by multiple people over the last few weeks that I have been talking about Full House a lot, and watching it with curious regularity. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t begin questioning why I’ve been doing this. With the 90’s being the latest era toContinue reading “Everywhere You Look”

Moving Days

June 7th, 2021 Moving on can be different things. I regularly play a game in my head where I try to imagine what my life would be like if my old job never ceased to exist. Lately, when I play that game, I get genuinely sad when I think of all the people I wouldn’tContinue reading “Moving Days”

Baby, Do You Know What That’s Worth?

May 31st, 2021 There’s an episode of Black Mirror called San Junipero that is based on the idea of a digital life and afterlife. It’s my favorite and one of the rare installments of Black Mirror that has an undeniably happy ending. Without spoiling anything, the end of the episode uses “Heaven Is A PlaceContinue reading “Baby, Do You Know What That’s Worth?”
