Coming Soon -- EGO REHAB!!!

I’m proud to announce my latest comic project, EGO REHAB. This autobiographical story features yours truly, as I’m rescued from a chronic lack of inspiration by my adventurous Inner Child. Together, we journey across forbidden worlds & haunted forests, all in a bid to reclaim our creative strength and sense of self. There’s laughter, tears, monsters and panel after panel of me getting my ass kicked. For all its humor & fantasy, this is the most deeply personal comic I’ve ever created. So I’m very excited to share it with you all.

I’ll be accepting pre-orders of EGO REHAB in mid-August. The book will premiere at the Long Beach Comic Con, September 12 & 13. Keep an eye on my social media for more updates, leading up to the pre-sale and release!

All the best,
- Dave C.

"The Great Escape"

“The Great Escape” / 11 x 14”
watercolor, acrylic & ink on paper 

Howdy, all! I'm really getting into this season's football drawings. This one features Seahawk's quarterback, Russell Wilson, narrowly escaping the vicious grasp of the 49ers' defensive tackle, Justin Smith.

Vancouver Comicon Weekend!

Yours truly will be a special guest at this weekend's Vancouver Comic Con

We're kicking off the festivities Saturday night, with a Live Art Funk Jam featuring myself, Jim Mahfood, Troy Nixey & Tyler Jenkins painting to the sounds of DJ Mykro Douglas. Then, the convention is on Sunday, from 11am to 5pm at the Heritage Hall.

I'll be bringing an assortment of art prints, including selections from Alphabet Attack! Series 1 & 2. I'll also have 18 x 24" giclee prints of my Danger Mouse illustration, as well as my DOOMBOX and LIONSEATYOU limited edition sketchbooks.

And to top things off, I'll have copies of my Image Comics anthology, Slop: Analecta on hand. To celebrate restocking my inventory of this book, I'm customizing each one with an original drawing on the first page. So come get these hot tamales while they're... well, HOT!

I was last in lovely Vancouver back in 2011 for this same convention, and it was an absolute blast. So I'm stoked to return for another weekend of British Columbia-style hijinks!

Hope to see you there!

Note Card Drawings


"Say What?"

Both of these are acrylic & ink drawings, done on 4.5 x 5.75" manila note cards. Seems like I have an endless supply of random paper and board stocks, stashed away in my studio. So I figured I should start exhausting some of it!

Big Works In Progress

Here are a few works-in-progress photos, featuring two new drawings. I haven't worked larger than 14 x 18" in awhile, so pieces this big make for an exciting workout. It's nuts how much of your body you can put into the drawing process, when you do things at a larger scale.

Putting my back into it,
