Fall 2014!

NOT your younger brother’s superzero franchise comics!

NOT your older sister’s “Eisner-Award-Nominated” snoozefest!

Picture stories the way YOU like them! ~ ed.

How things evolve:  I did a watercolor drawing called “Moved by Spirits” in the late 1980s/early1990s.  When I was trying to come up with a strip for an issue of BLAB Magazine in 1992, I used that composition for the splash page of a (typically nutso) story called “Psycho vs Psycho”.  But I never finished that story and instead did the strip “Psycho-Rama”, where, you can see, I not only used part of the title, but also the skull in the upper right hand corner.  All part of the process of making stuff!  Some stuff gets thrown away, other stuff gets re-used.

Samples of illustration artwork you can find for sale here:

Top:  ”Curse of the Money Tomb” for Kiplinger’s Magazine

Bottom:  ”Corporate Coffee” for a Seattle newspaper (can’t remember which one!)

You can also find my comic art at the CAC as well, but illustrations are usually priced cheaper.  Thanks for looking!

Here are a few more pages from early issues of Evil Eye - a couple of letters pages, plus the original art for an ad for The Chuckling Whatsit, which was printed in Evil Eye #1.

The Walking Dead!!  Here is an exciting sequence from the 6th issue of Evil Eye.  This story and other adventures have been reprinted in the book version of PECULIA, still available from Fantagraphics Books here:

A couple of ad pages from early issues of EVIL EYE!  (Sorry — I think all issues are long sold out from Fantagraphics, so you shouldn’t order from these posted pages unless you have the ability to travel through time).
