It takes a certain personality to be a cartoonist. I’ve always preferred to be by myself in a room than hanging out with a big group of friends. Drawing is a calming habit that I’ve kept up my whole life. And I try to spread my work out as much as I can. I’m spinning a lot of plates right now. I’m real busy. Here are some of my works in progress:
These are pages from a comic I’m doing with 2d Cloud (the publisher of Death of Elijah Lovejoy). The plan is to have it printed on newsprint with a comic by Nicolas Bruetzman.
Below are some pages from a longer story called “The Lizard Laughed” a father and son story. Also to be published by 2d cloud.
Here are some pages from a comic book that I’m almost finished with that will be published by Retrofit comics some time this year I think. It’s called “1999″ and is a 32 page one shot story.
“1999″ is similar in tone to a story I did in Blammo #6 called “Abbey’s Road” but it’s a bit more surreal. Below is the cover:
My big project is of course “The Hypo” which I probably would have finished years ago if I wasn’t constantly drawing other comics. Here’s a look at how that’s going:
So here it is. Not all of it. But some of the work in progress I have in my apartment. I really can’t wait for the day when I look back on this post and remember when these were the projects I was drawing. And by then I’ll have 10 more things to do…
What a life.
