Hi everyone! My new comic Fight Frogs is almost done and ready to premier at this year’s Small Press Expo!  It’s a story about 3 frog-men brothers who live in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, party hard, and FIGHT!

I’m currently running a Kickstarter to get the book funded, and would be totally stoked if you’d like to contribute to it!  Click here for more details, and to pre-order your copy today!

Oh man oh man! Less than 24 hours left to go!!! If Fight Frogs gets to $4000 by the end, everyone who orders a physical copy of the book gets a set of 3 buttons in addition to the super sweet temporary tats! Get your pledges in before it’s too late!

Thanks so much everyone, this Kickstarter has been beyond successful!

To pledge, click here!

The Fight Frogs Kickstarter just passed $3000 and met it’s first stretch goal! Hubba hubba! From here on out, anyone who orders a physical copy of the book gets a free Fight Frogs temporary tattoo of Gorp on a hot-rod-dog!

The Kickstarter for Fight Frogs is ending in just about 7 days!  Thanks so much to everyone who has supported the project, spread the word, and told me how much they like it!  I just put up a few stretch goals, so if you’d like to check them out click here!

Holy scrunge you guys! I woke up to see that the Fight Frogs Kickstarter was funded last night! I’m so excited that this is going to happen for real!  I’ll keep you posted on updates, and what stretch goals I have planned in case things get really crazy!  Thanks so much everyone who’s pledged, spread the word, or told me nice things about the project! This is AWESOME!

Don’t worry Stefie, I definitely have some new E&F stuff in the works! I don’t know when it’s going to be coming out, but it’s on it’s way!

I recently got to design a variant cover for the first issue of Boom!'s new Big Trouble in Little China series, which comes out this Wednesday.  This cover is an exclusive for one of my favorite comic shops, Third Eye Comics in Annapolis, MD!  I had a ton of fun working on this one!
Thanks Boom! and Third Eye Comics for asking me to do this!

Hey! Supersonic was kind enough to come out to my studio a little while ago and take some pictures of my goober-ass and where I make my goober-ass art!  Click through to see how much cool stuff I own!

Thanks a ton Supersonic!

My illustration for the cover of the new issue of Mutant, put out by Atomic Books and on stands this Saturday for Free Comic Book Day!! It was real easy to draw, considering it was a self portrait and all.

I drew a missingno. for the upcoming Glitch Pokézine!
I’ve always liked missingno. a ton, and while I know that most people find the glitch pokémon scary or creepy, I’ve always found him/her/it to be a lot of fun.  I kind of wanted to draw Red as if his expectation of what would happen when he encountered a missingno. was the same as mine!
