My website is down right now. There’s a page on this blog now for you to buy Blammo if you feel like it. But, I guess the mini comics are going to be a bit harder to find now…
I’ve been freaking out about my site being down, because I feel like people don’t have a way of contacting me. So if you ever want to drop me a line:
Here’s a 3 pager from Blammo #5
For the past few days I’ve been drawing a chapter for The Hypo that is the best thing I’ve ever done. I’m pretty excited about it.
I may never know if my comics are any good to tell you the truth. How could I? I see these thing through a filter and it is impossible to read my own work objectively. So, I don’t know if my book will be good enough for a publisher. I know I don’t have a very mainstream style that will appeal to all the people, but I do know that what I’ve been doing to the story of Lincoln is different than what has ever been done. And, that’s what keeps me going with it.
Full speed ahead. And if The Hypo’s lack of computer coloring and computer lettering is too much for a publisher to stand, than I’ll print it myself. It will be a beautiful object to me. A book about a man coming from nothing, and accomplishing a goal. Not just Abraham Lincoln, but me.

In case you haven’t gotten a copy of my award-winning comic book Blammo #6 yet, I’m still willing to write ANYTHING that you want in a copy and personally ship it to your place of residence. I’m sold out of the back issues now, so you can’t get any of those from me personally but you still can get them print on demand.
I am starting to get pretty anxious about putting together the Blammo Comics library book. Which would be 5 issues of blammo plus the mini comic stuff that I’ve done all bound together in a paperback. I like to think of a book like that existing.
Anyway, here’s what Jeffrey Brown says about the new issue of Blammo:
And when I woke up this morning I grabbed a piece of paper that was sitting next to my “bed” and jotted down my plans for the future:

I helped John Porcellino move last week. It’s always crummy when a good friend of yours moves away, but when you actually have to help him do it, it adds to the sting. It all happened really fast. Within a week he had decided that he was leaving.
So, no more Porcellino in Denver. I’m pretty sad about all of this. He was my close friend and maybe one of my biggest fans/supporters. I learned a lot from him and I really picked up on how to time my comics from reading his.

Alright, let’s get this over with. I’m 26 now.
You know, everybody always accuses me of being self-deprecating. I don’t think I am. I just draw myself the way that I feel. I’m not just making this stuff up.
Here’s a couple of links!
You know what would be an AWESOME birthday gift? If Eric Reynolds would decide that he will publish the comic I drew for MOME! Come on Eric! It’s my Birthday, man!
Here’s a comic that has no home:
