Wacom Practice

I finally got a Wacom tablet, and I'm finally starting to use it. I've just been sketching on it to try to get a feel for using it. This is one of those sketches.

Super Sexy Sounds of The Sea

This is an oldie-but-a-goodie illo of Jefe, from Scurvy Dogs. It's actually, perhaps, my most favorite illustration of Jefe that I've ever done. Uber-Editor exxtreme, Maureen McTigue, is in possession of the original art, which was commissioned to accompany Andrew's and my interview in Vampirella magazine all those many moons ago.

SAGE Magazine Cartoon

I found this cartoon of mine recently, which was published in the first issue of Yale's environmental studies magazine, SAGE.

Personally, I've always had a hard time with the "cartoon" format. Either single-panel or 3-panel. My mind just doesn't seem to work that way, so everytime I do one, it's like pulling teeth to get concepts I like. I'm sure if I practiced more, it would come easier.

Guitar Zeros Tour Poster (by Matt Leunig)

Here is Matt Leunig's most-excellent poster for our NYC World Tour.
Yes, that's a troll who's come across the severed head of a unicorn... Because, to some people, that's what our music FEELS like.

Extremely limited printing, but we have a few left. Contact me if you need to pick one up.

It wouldn't be Summer without me adding something to the garage. Well, here it is: '67 Pontiac Catalina. Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet. Just cruise it around, I suppose.

Yessss. Had a fabulous trip to Austin (my yearly trip out there) for the STAPLE show once again.

Rob Osborne ( and I manned a table, drew a bunch of sketches, sold a bunch of books, and had a bunch of fun. Can't wait for next year's show.

My thanks to everyone that came out, stopped by to say hi, gave some nice words about Scurvy Dogs or American Space Ninja, or asked when new material was coming out.

Every time I'm out there, it seems like I meet new fans of the books, which is a tribute, of course, to the love we're shown in Austin by Austin Books ( and The Rogues Gallery ( So thanks again to Brad, Brandon, Dave, Randy, and, finally, Uncle Staple himself.

I'll post a gallery of the weekend's sketches, as soon as I get the pix back from Mr. Osborne.
