mai order ninja kickstarter!

hi all!
took a little time out of my usual craziness to donate this pinup as a reward for backing josh elder's ("reading with pictures") creator-owned "mail order ninja". the title is... pretty self-explanatory. the kickstarter ends tomorrow, here's a link to back the project, and maybe get my art!


ps - and after some technical issues, if you have some PDF(s) coming your way, keep an eye on your inbox!

more tiny doodles!


my own sic-fi, anti-utopian story

was rewatching "sherlock" while working today. not only a brilliant series, but possibly the cleverest adaptations i've ever seen, of anything. suck it, james v hart! (and yes, that is a terrible likeness. i could claim i wasn't trying too hard -- i wasn't -- but likenesses usually aren't my strong point, anyway.)

one of my favorite stories has always been "hound of the baskervilles". when i first saw the sherlock version ("hounds of baskerville"), i couldn't believe how much it altered the story, while capturing it perfectly! i'd like to do a "real" illustration of it sometime, just don't know if/when i'll have time...

tiny doodles!

hi all!
did some of these a loooong time ago, like how small and cropped they are. (once i ordered my favorite drawing paper, but it was legal not letter size, so i had to cut off the excess.) found more of these tiny sheets, started drawing more tiny doodles!

i think i'm going to sell these off for $10 each. i like drawing them but, honestly, i'm sick of having so much junk in my house. in fact, i think i'm going to go through a lot of art and sell it off cheap, i have scans of everything anyway!

WW painting WIP 1

hi all!

in addition to all my other craziness, i'm donating an oil painting to the new york comic con auction. been a long long while since i painted anything non-digital, so far so good...

if it works out, i'll probably do more paintings, i always enjoyed doing it, just never had the luxury of drying them for deadlines. also, i was terrible at it.
