Amazon's Sacrifice

This one was done as a submission for a show in Seattle that will be called "Breast" - the brief wasn't necessarily just about the boob as a beauty-object, but also its place in society as well as history.
Of course my mind immediately jumps to the mythological Amazons, who supposedly burned off their right breasts in order to use a bow more effectively....

Fingers crossed that they like it.

web comic teaser

I've threatened for years to start a comic, and after multiple false starts, self-flagellation, -recrimination, and procrastination I've finally started. But in an effort to light a fire under my own a$$, I'm posting the first two unlettered pages as a sort of teaser. This way I'll be too embarrassed not to continue. I'm also learning the ins and outs of my (next to) new WACOM tablet, which is daunting in its possibilities, frustrating in its newness, and way too cool not to play with more often.

Paintings for the Laika Fund

Our friends Chris & Jen have a sweet little dog named Laika, who, like so many other dogs (and too many other acquaintances for me to be comfortable with), has a propensity for swallowing foreign objects. Well, this last time, said propensity has led to a mountain of vet bills that many of us are trying to alleviate in any way we can. I did these three paintings to sell in an effort to raise money to help foot some of those bills. They're small little paintings that I sent back to San Francisco before I measured them, but I think they're about 13,5 x 19cm.

Cookies & Milk

The Carrot or the Stick

Brace Face
Anyhow, if you're interested in one of these paintings and would like to buy some art to contribute to the Laika Fund, let me know.
