I’m working on new two-color story to be published via risograph for the fall. It’s an autobiographical tale based on a strange event on my sixth birthday. It will be serialized here first once a few more pages are done. I tend to work on these things from the middle – out.

I'm participating in a group show featuring 16 Philadelphia based artists and cartoonists at AIGA PHILADELPHIA just off the corner of 2nd and Arch Streets in Philly.

Showcasing local comic book artists, visual communicators and storytellers.
Curated by Chase Alexander and Gaby Heit

AIGA Philadelphia’s May exhibit will feature local talents of diverse aesthetics whose work shares the connection to the comic book (sequential art and design) medium; be it through visual communication and storytelling, and designs that feature the characters and stories that have influenced the pop culture landscape. The exhibit opens on First Friday, May 1, and continues to May 31 with related programming throughout the month, to be announced. AIGA Philadelphia SPACE is located at 72 N. 2nd Street in Old City, Philadelphia, May 1 through May 31.

You should be so lucky. (From my sketchbook)

Gimmie that old time religion,
Gimmie that old time religion,
Gimmie that old time religion,
It's good enough for me.

Let us worship Aphrodite,
Even though she's kinda flighty,
And she doesn't wear a nightie,
But that's good enough for me.

NIXON cover

Here’s my new comic book, The NIXON MUSEUM. It’s the second MY OWN PETARD collection. It premieres at SPX 2013 as well as the Locust Moon Comics Fest.

SYNOPSIS: Art Baxter visits the Nixon Museum, where absurd images of the disgraced 37th president of the United States abound. Once there, memories of the turbulent 1968 presidential election bloom as he encounters his old elementary school frienemy, Kurt Dortmund. This crazy obsessive odyssey includes an intermission for a bathroom break.

Color cover & b&w interior – 48 pages – 7.5 x 7
