These are actually from Saturday. Just a little warm-up sketch, along with a color sketch for a custom job I'm doing.

On The Slate - Week In Review!

Awful internet connection, be damned! Here's what I've been up to, this past week!

Editorial cartoons

A page from my new minicomic

A small portion of my arsenal

A short for BOOM!'s CBGB series (written by R. Eric Lieb)

Customizing JARFACE and DEATHWARRANT for recent orders

Head 'em up, move 'em out, RAWHIDE!

Bustin' a move on the freshest commissions

Most of this art was created to The Beat Bee Sessions, courtesy of Jane Dope and Food One:, as well as some Rob Sonic, Parliament, White Strips, Edan, The Black Keys and a handful more. It's been a pretty musical week.

From Oakland with love,
- Dave, aka Gum.

On The Slate 8.18.10

Today's diddy is a little mixed media piece I call "Swirls." This was done on a wood panel that I tape pieces to for watercoloring. It was originally cut to be my lap board at Comic-Con. Seemed like a good idea to draw on it one day, as I was warming up.

On The Slate: Tuesday night!

I'm up listing to music and working, so I thought I'd take some quick photos for a Tuesday Night "On The Slate!" Tonight's visual selection are some new drawings (in progress) in the Angel vs. Brute storyline that I created in UNDEFEATED. There's also a snapshot of a painted short story I'm doing for BOOM!'s CBGB miniseries.


- Gum.

ps -- Tonight's soundtrack has been Ghostbusters 2 (the movie, not the soundtrack), Supreme Clientele, Alive 2007, One Day As A Lion, and Chocolate And Cheese.
