finally updating again

It's been a couple months since I've updated. My hard drive was wiped out and I've been too busy to scan my new work. By the time I get the hardware back in business and my finals out of the way, I'll have a larger update.

In the mean time, a part of a series I'm working on:

I was gonna share with you the sketches I did during midterm crits, but my scanner collapsed after one picture, the piece of shit.

I cropped one portrait out of this one because I didn't make her look as lovely as she actually is.

In case you didn't know, Noel Murray is my hero.
I've been thinking about autobiographical comics and I might write something about it up here pretty soon. So you know, look out.

on tributes

Kochalka comments on 9/11 with all the opaque humor of his cute-baby stories:

Classy, sir.

Even in the inundation of 9/11 tributes five years ago, I didn't understand all the comic commentaries that came out. Yes, comics in their current form are an American art form, and there are certainly comic artists that are capable of making successful comics in response to the attacks, whether it be because they are fucking great writers, have made significant contributions to American culture, or both.

But many of the comics I've read in response to 9/11 carry on the same irritating characteristics of contemporary comics--oversaturated emotion, broad proclamations of trite messages, and plain and simple poor writing. Comics could be the "art form" that many have prematurely labeled it as, but most comic artists (myself included, no delusions in this blog) have about the same relevance and clout as dime-store novelists. We have neither the responsibility nor the right to throw our artistic voices into the big-kid discourse.

my new heroine, dorothy parker

"I wish I could drink like a lady,
I'll have one or two at the most.
Three and I'm under the table,
Four and I'm under the host."

"I've been too fucking busy, and vice versa."

"They sicken of the calm, who knew the storm."

"The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity."

"Men seldom make passes
At girls who wear glasses."

"This is not a book to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force."

"This wasn't just plain terrible, this was fancy terrible. This was terrible with raisins in it."

"Time doth flit; oh shit."

in progress

The McQueen Fall '06 is really inspiring, you should check it out.

I've kinda gotten stuck in a rut this summer and therefore have not done much in the way of decent artwork. But I'm working on it.

If you are reading this, it is very likely that I miss you and hope you are doing well!
