Fake’s Not Real

April 9th, 2022 As disclaimers go, this is a weird one: representation matters. I believe that to my core. I want to make that clear before I start. So what kind of something am I starting? I guess we’ll see. When we’re kids, we are generally taught the difference between real and fake. The newsContinue reading “Fake’s Not Real”

Artist 2 Artist: A Conversation w/ Steven Starks Jr, Dennis Vogen & Spicy Chicken Nuggies

March 31st, 2022 Over a dazzling array of a dozen varieties of Desert Fire hot sauce, Steven Starks Jr. and Dennis Vogen have an artist-on-artist chat about what inspired them to create, what makes them tick now, and what they’re doing next. Steven is known for his musical career, playing with bands like Aeous andContinue reading “Artist 2 Artist: A Conversation w/ Steven Starks Jr, Dennis Vogen & Spicy Chicken Nuggies”

An Infinite Series of Quantum Give-Ups

March 31st, 2022 Okay, this is the post where I get all mushy, and then it’s back on the sarcasm train, full speed ahead. I give up a lot. “But,” you interject, “you’ve made so many things! A person who gives up would not have so much to show for it!” It’s a lot ofContinue reading “An Infinite Series of Quantum Give-Ups”

WE DID IT! Fire & Ice = Success!

March 26th, 2022 YAHOOOO!! Hey, kids!! WE DID IT!! Overnight — not by magic, but by your very intentional support — we surpassed our Kickstarter goal of $2,000! That means that I have the funds to publish not one, but two incredibly special books this summer: Cold World, and Brushfire. Thank you. From deep withinContinue reading “WE DID IT! Fire & Ice = Success!”

a small word

March 23rd, 2022 Last night, I got to take part in a really special interview/conversation (hopefully I can share details soon!). The fun part of interviews is that it doesn’t matter how much you prepare; you don’t know what someone is going to ask you, and you never know what you’re going to say untilContinue reading “a small word”

So Long, Farewell

March 21st, 2022 I’m probably just in a mood, or maybe the algorithm is joyously targeting me, but I just keep thinking about good byes. Sure, there are the big ones that social media seems keen to keep reminding me of, like I don’t think about my big good bye too often already. But it’sContinue reading “So Long, Farewell”

It’s a Cold, Cold World

March 18th, 2022 I’ve spent a lot of time talking about the world of Brushfire, and haven’t shared too much about Cold World, besides its title, release date and basic premise. That’s intentional, for sure: Brushfire is a story I’ve been working on for a long time, and it’s visually more fun to share. ColdContinue reading “It’s a Cold, Cold World”

STEAL THIS

March 16th, 2022 Some of my wonderful co-publishers have been asking me how they can further get the word out about the books I’m releasing this summer and the campaign I’m running to publish them. “But wait,” you might be thinking. “Co-publishers? Don’t you self-publish your work?” Well, yes. I do self-publish. But I don’tContinue reading “STEAL THIS”

Look Who I Ran Into!

March 14th, 2022 I just ran into my buddy, Bay, and he says hi! He’s wondering, too, if you have any chips. He also can’t believe we’ve already raised 54% of Fire & Ice — almost $1,100 — to tell his story. He actually got teary-eyed as I told him how excited people are toContinue reading “Look Who I Ran Into!”

i made this for your fridge

March 10th, 2022 I’m a firm believer that when I have feelings while I’m creating something that it will hold those feelings and then give them to the person who experiences the art. From my personal interactions, this seems to be true. I’ve had people reach out after reading something and say, “When I gotContinue reading “i made this for your fridge”
