Moonrise Kingdom Review

Moonrise Kingdom Review

    I really liked Moonrise Kingdom!  Wes Anderson can be pretentious, but I love his visual aesthetic, and I really respect that he is able to make a movie where you can see his touch in every detail.  Also, this.     (Bill Murray is dead on about the costumes.)...
Thanks for the Wild Rumpus

Thanks for the Wild Rumpus

  I woke up today to the news that Maurice Sendak has passed on.  He was a truly brilliant artist, and I while I loved his books growing up, they’re no less powerful an influence on me today.  Thank you, sir, for your amazing work.
Seeing Sarah

Seeing Sarah

  “Seeing Sarah” is a travelogue and journal of a 72-hour trip to that I took to New Orleans in December 2011.  It was written as a companion piece to “You Promised No One Would Go In There,” showing the rest of the eventful three days I spent in the Big Easy....
Day Four - Tahoe

Day Four – Tahoe

  I drew this a while back when I was trying to do one of those 30-Day Drawing Challenges, and then gave up.  I might do one next month, though (although I’ll have to add on a few days!).  But, what I did get done for that try, I did...
You Promised No One Would Go In There

You Promised No One Would Go In There

At the beginning of December, I took a three-day trip to New Orleans to visit friends and see their new play, “Sarah.”  In the process, I made another review/response comic to the show.

Aw Geez, It’s Dusty In Here!

Hey Y’all!  It’s been a long time since I’ve updated this site, but for good reason.  Since August, I’ve a) moved to Brooklyn b) traveled around South America for three months c) come back to Brooklyn, and found myself a job, and d) had some thing published, along with some other things I can’t quite...
Cooger & Dark's Pandemonium Shadow Show

Cooger & Dark’s Pandemonium Shadow Show

  Reading Ray Bradbury’s Martian Chronicles for the first time was an unsettling experience.  This was back in middle school, and I must have been eleven?  Twelve?  Some time around that age.  I loved sci-fi, but to that point I had mostly read Isaac Asimov’s stuff, which is generally lighter and more optimistic, I think.  He...
A Love Supreme

A Love Supreme

When I fell in love with jazz, I fell in love with John Coltrane.  I remember the moment vividly – I was in middle school, probably in the eighth grade, and I was seeing my friends in the school jazz band play a concert.  I was a bit drowsy, as I get during some concerts,...
Naive Melody

Naive Melody

  Nothing like taking a lamp for a dance!  Seeing the Talking Heads’ movie Stop Making Sense for the first time in college was huge for me – I was a late bloomer in regards to music and the art of performance in general, and it really changed what I thought of as music and performance art....
Brave, a Song

Brave, a Song

  Chris Rubeo is a fine gentleman and a great musician.  Go check out his first album, Ships of Sticks and Twine!  This was based off of his song, “Brave.”  It’s a really sweet, sad song, and I feel pretty happy that he asked me to contribute something for it.
Beer is Culture!

Beer is Culture!

  I made this piece a month or so ago as an entry for Sixpoint Brewery’s annual “Beer is Culture” art and design competition, and I came away with third place!  Woohoo!  My first art win, oh it feels so nice.  They even did a nice little interview with me on their blog, which you...

  Another western.  It must be something about the weather.
Town on Fire

Town on Fire

  Another western-inspired warmup.  I particularly like how the flames turned out.  He’s a bad dude!   Also!  I have new things for you to spend your money on in my store!
Portrait - John Doyle

Portrait – John Doyle

  And to round out my Girl Walk series, here’s John Doyle as the Creep!  One of the things that I really love about the whole piece is how it showcases each of the dancers’ wildly different styles, and Mr. Doyle’s performance was one of my favorite threads.  I think the best way to describe...
Portrait - Dai Omiya

Portrait – Dai Omiya

  This is getting to be a really fun series!  Dai Omiya is another of the principles of Girl Walk//All Day, and is one hell of a tap dancer as the Gentleman.  One of the exciting things about the project is the aspect of urban exploration, and the way it deals with public space.  Seeing...
