Good news, indeed!



 Zombie Marge Comix & Stories #2 is finally available. It features the first half of Marge’s adventures with UFOs, abduction, Men in Black, glowing balls of light, alien invaders and, of course, the mysterious Mothman. Oh, and zombies figure into the story too. All this and some exciting back-up features, like an interview and Marge-flavored pin-ups by some of my cartoonist pals. The comic is available online through Indy Planet in two versions. The print edition is $5.00 and the digital download is 99 cents. The direct link is:


I will have copies of the comic at the upcoming local shows, Cincy ComiCon on September 5-7 and the Cincinnati Comic Expo on September 19-21. See you there!

Muddy Colors Article: So you want to be a “book cover artist”

This article by David Palumbo is packed with good advice. I have met many artists whose goals are exactly what is stated here.

There is a lot of interesting work out there beyond the confines of this narrow desire.

Another Lunch Puppet Slam and Jerry's giant Arthur's Sketch

This is the original sketch for the mural at Arthur's
Last week at Arthur's, Jerry brought his original sketch. I could not get him and Pam both in the picture without going over the patio ledge.

 Pam also brought a new puppet. This time a spider modeled by Tom Beuerlein.

Great lunch and a lot of cool art was shown!

Next week is at Slatts Pub. BYOP!

Sketches of Biblical Disproportions

It's hard for me to find work I can share on the blogosphere, but today I've posted a series of sketches on my blog from a ongoing project for a faith-based publisher.























There's some brief text about the challenges of treating Biblical subjects in cartoon form and why studying the Old Masters is not always helpful.
