the reason i’ve been so absent from this blog- and pretty much the internet as a whole- is that i’ve been hard at work on my story for parable for the past three weeks. well, last night i finished it! here’s a sneak peak at the first page:


unfortunately, things don’t wind down for me just yet. there’s still a lot of work to do for this anthology so the blog updates may continue to be somewhat scarce.

in other news, you may or may not have noticed that my website got a bit of a re-design last week. finally got around to creating a links page and some banners, rewriting my bio, and moving some illustrations to the front page.

and for the sake of contrast, here is my drawergeeks contribution for last friday. the subject was sandman- spiderman’s sandman. i wasn’t going to do anything this week because of how busy i’ve been, but one of my coworkers expects me to draw something for dg every other friday and proceeded to tell me so when i came walking into work the day before. so i quickly drew this on a post-it note while my computer was booting up thursday morning.

    I’ve been noticing hints and glimmers of another side of you outside of your Cow and Buffalo work….and I knew it was gonna be good.
    Can’t wait to see the rest.
