"Game Ball"

"Game Ball" / 11 x 17" / Sharpie & ink on paper

What? You thought I wasn't gonna churn out any football illustrations, this year? Well, fear not! I'm up to my neck in pigskin action, this season. College, NFL, my first Fantasy team, whack-ass replacement ref griping -- I'm all in!

So you can definitely look forward to more exciting gridiron art from moi. The piece above was a quick sketch I knocked out, late last night. Just a tiny taste of things to come.

SPX Wrap-Up & Sketches

Many, many thanks to all the wonderful people who helped make the Small Press Expo 2012 such a fantastic experience! It was my first time doing the show, so I really appreciate all the fans who came out to show support. And a special shout-out to my delightful friend & colleague, Danielle Corsetto (, for hosting me at her table.

You can see my sketches from the convention below. Also, Sara Moline of Metro Business Media did a great write-up on SPX 2012 that includes an opinionated tidbit from yours truly. Read the aricle here: "Comic Collectors Rejoice at Bethesda's Annual Small Press Expo."

Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja!

In case you didn't know, I've been working as an assistant character designer on Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja, since last winter. And, at long last, the show premieres this evening on Disney XD!

It's been an amazing experience, working with the Randy crew and being a part of Titmouse, Inc (Metalocalypse, Black Dynamite, Motorcity). We're all super-proud of the series. I think kids & adults will get a real kick out of it (pun intended)!

Please check your local listings for showtimes. Disney XD will be airing 4 brand-spanking-new episodes of the action/comedy show, this week. So be sure to tune in!

Small Press Expo 2012!

Surprise, surprise! I'm actually doing another comic convention, this year. That's right, kiddies... I'm rocking the Small Press Expo (SPX) this weekend, in Bethesda, Maryland. I've always wanted to participate in this show, since before I was a professional artist. So I'm especially stoked that circumstances aligned for me to attend.

I'll be setting up at booth W12, alongside Danielle Corsetto, the lovely & illustrious storyteller behind the hit webcomic, Girls With Slingshots. I'm bringing a plethora of con-exclusive prints, as well as a special SPX Edition reprinting of my LIONSEATYOU sketchbook. And, as an added treat for my early-bird customers, I'll have a small cache of 11 x 17 posters for the Disney XD/Titmouse, Inc show I work on: Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja (premiering Monday, Sept 17)!

So if you're hitting the show this weekend, be sure to swing by our spot for all sorts of amazing art, comics and freaky-flavored fun! See the SPX 2012 floor plan below, so you know where to find us. Visit for further convention details.
