***sadly, i had to put the brakes on doing the earfarmer and going to tcaf this year. i really need to focus on finishing it will all hurt and even more importantly pop gun war: chain letter which is a project i have been working on now for about the last ten years or so and will be running in the pages of the new image anthology, ISLAND this fall.
***after three years or more, it will all hurt is finally wrapping up. as of this post i just have one more installment which should post while i am at ECCC. then issue #3 (the final ish) should be out by linework NW in april. but you can read the enitre ding dong thing on-line at studygroupcomics.com

***and lastly there is this kickstarter for shaman, a completed comic graphic novel i did a cover for. it is a pretty great and fun mystic superhero comic that deserves to be published.
