Greetings from Rhode Island

October 28, 2011

I was really excited to get a call from Minh Uong at the Sunday Business section of the New York Times last week. He had a story about Rhode Island and its financial trouble and came to me with the idea of a postcard with the state’s landmarks in a state of decay. Even better, it was to be the cover!

Original sketches and revised final sketch

This is my second job for NYT, and hopefully there’s more to come.

PAWS Charity Show, sketches

October 18, 2011

I’ll be donating artwork to a show for PAWS, a no-kill shelter organization in Philadelphia and the only of its kind in the city. The show, called More than Nine Lives, will feature a lot of great artists including other Philadelphia Cartoonists Society members.

I was really excited to be asked to donate work to the show because my own cats were originally from a litter my old roommate fostered. They’re an integral part of my and my girlfriend’s lives at this point and I’ve become one of those people who has far too many pictures of his cats on his phone and computer.

The sketches are portraits of our 2 cats, Amos & McKinley, with a Pennsylvania Dutch motif. Much of my summer was spent driving through central Pennsylvania and seeing these hex designs on the sides of barns, cars and other home goods in the country.

For more info on the show, check out the link here.

Just wanted to say that Paradigm Gallery has now opened it’s shop for the Dead & Dreaming show. Prints of my piece, The Tomb, are available for $25.00. Moreover, other pieces by all the amazing artists of the Philadelphia Cartoonist Society are for sale as well. Link to their shop here.

Harry Dresden

October 8, 2011

I’ve read a lot of Dresden Files lately. It’s a book series about Harry Dresden, a wizard detective. Yeah. He’s a wizard detective.

I wrote off the series because of that alone, but once I picked up the first book I found that it was really fun. It’s full of self-aware comedy, hard boiled detective plots, and fantasy elements. Seven books in, and reluctant to get to work, I did a little drawing of the main character, Harry Dresden.
