Teresa at Sabbath Tattoo inking a splashy, artsy jellyfish onto my arm. R: jellyfish for VP XIV; L: shark for CW2012 I am a graduate of both Viable Paradise and Clarion West. These workshops changed my life in very different, intensely meaningful ways, and i’m so honored to have had those experiences and become friends […]

Art in Reverse

In some ways, Clarion West changed the way I was beginning doodles and drawings. I’m not sure I’m prepared to elaborate quite yet; I’m still working on how to describe the association I’m making between two entirely different craft techniques. The unrefined, bumbling version is this: Ideally in my fiction I will suggest how the […]

Arcely, cephalopods, & yeti

My friends Nicole and Arcely came to draw with me on Sunday. Arcely drew me two pictures, and Nicole doodled the name of her forthcoming second spawn like fifty bazillion times. I drew some sasquatches, but those weren’t as cool as what Arcely drew, so I’m going to show you hers first. Nicole was horrified […]

Hello, 2012!

I got a text message from an anonymous friend telling me how the alcohol-drenched party he was at totally sucked, while I was eating chocolate fondue and doing art collaborations with Mr. Sketchy […]

Tortoise or hare?

Want to see when I’ve been drawing? It’s all the flat bits on this “Nano stats” graph. So instead of being a tortoise or a hare, I am some kind of unholy abomination that came from the loins of a hare that got a little drunk by the pond one night. Most scientists agree I […]
