Pumpkin Hunting

Here is Melissa trying to get a pumpkin up to the house to make a replacement pie for her mother (see earlier posts).

Stupid things I've said

I was not a very good student in high school, mostly because I was much more interested in art. When I finally decided to go to college, I had a lot of catching up to do in terms of vocabulary (and general book learning). This situation lead me to say a lot of stupid things, trying to sound cool and academic. Here is one such case...there are many more! In this case, it was during a conversation with my friend Bram while taking a walk in Orono, Maine.

Sorry Mommy

A quick sketch showing the aftermath of Melissa's pie toss. This is part of a larger story that I was toying with, and may get to eventually.

Illustration Friday: Zoom

I still haven't gotten a new scanner yet, but I've availed myself of Iowa City's wonderful public library to scan a few peaces in. Here is my entry for this week's Illustration Friday, with the theme of Zoom. It stars Melissa, a reoccurring character in a lot of my sketches and comics, and is the same Melissa from Melissa & Owl.

P.S., this is my first time using a brush pen.

Anthology Updates

I've received the decisions regarding both of my anthology submissions. The Eilean Mor story for Hic & Hoc publications was not accepted. This was not surprising once I found out that at least one experienced cartoonist had chosen the same story...oh well, it was my first time and I learned a lot! 

The Joy anthology submission, however, was accepted! I'll post an update once the book is out. 

I've got a lot of new drawings and short comics that I'll post as soon as I get a scanner!
