I'm considered the go to guy when it comes to doing design work for my friend Chris' band Vilipend (myspace). Here's a recent hoodie design...

Lonely Robots-The Aftermath...

The Lonely Robots show took place on July 16th and it turned out to be a great evening and a great overall success. The turnout was healthy, making things a bit on the humid side in the gallery space, but plenty of people enjoyed what they saw and were interested to see what this group was going to pull off next. Big hugs and a huge round of applause for Mr. Damian Zuch, for his unwavering dedication in making the show happen, all the artists involved for some great work and for their enthusiasm, and to our hosts at the Magic Pony for being top notch. Nice to meet many of the participants that I'd never crossed paths with. If you're Facebook enabled some pics from the event can be found at this here spot.
Here's my contribution to the show entitled "A Bot in the Belly"....

Michael Kupperman Interview...

The AV club has a great interview up with cartoonist/illustrator Michael Kupperman (of the fantastic "Tales Designed to Thrizzle") where he talks about his work, animation and writing gags on twitter. It's also got a bit of insight as to the problems facing freelance illustrators these days with many of the publishing options going down the toilet and budgets being slashed. Check it out here

Captain America...


I've been enjoying some of the collections of Ed Brubaker's take on the good Captain (except the library doesn't have vol. 3!!) and I decided to do this for fun...
