Character designs- THE REPORTER


Working out ideas for my reporter character for the "Bitter Creek Murder" comic. Think he's a good mix of hunky and dreamy! Whatcha think ladies?

Staff meetings GALORE!!!


As a teacher, it seems that half of your time is spent at meetings. Now keep in mind, these meetings are usually gigantic wastes of time, repeating things we've heard a dozen times and letting people bitch and moan about problems that will never be solved (have you heard that kids these days are disrespectful and dress poorly?). But sometimes, good things do come out of these meetings...like my drawings I do on the agendas to help pass the time!!
Well, I gotta get ready for my meeting tonight from 4-6; not to be confused with tomorrow's meeting from 2:45-3:30. Or the staffing on a student Friday at 9 am. Or....

I've been kicking around this idea for a comic for a while; kinda a crime comic, kinda a "Citizen Kane" take on some actual events that went down in my home town. Think I might revisit this idea now that I got a lotta down time....

John Lennon 1940-1980


It was on this day the world lost a musical legend. I was only 5 when it happened and didn't really know who John Lennon was. I do now. Ever since my buddy Ricky and I started obsessing over the Fab Four in high school, the Beatles have been a HUGE part of my life. Hell, I even named my son Harrison after George.

John Lennon may not have been a perfect person, and he had lousy musical timing.... but he was a talent that the world has been lesser for ever since we lost him.

Gods of Thunder!!


After an art show/sale I was in over the holiday weekend, I was commissioned to do a drawing of KISS for a co-worker. I've loved KISS ever since I was a little kid. They have always combined 2 of my favorite things: comic book imagery, and....uh....cheesey misogynistic rock n'roll!!

My first post y'all!!!


Well, this is my first blog post! My friend, let's call her "connie", no let's call her "norman" is forcing me at gunpoint to get a blog rolling. So here it is, my foray into the world of electronic selfabsorbtion.
Please check back from time to time and see what I am up to artistically! (and from time to time I mean sporadically at best!)
