Gutenberg vs. My Sanity

So I read somewhere that no one actually knows what Gutenberg looks like. He was largely underappreciated until he was about to die, so no one ever drew his portrait. Yet, every rendering of him on the internet shows him with this two-pronged beard, because one fellow, four or five hundred years ago drew him this way in a history book. I wish I had that kind of power.

In preparation for a new project


It involves saints and betrayal and copyright. Should be interesting. More to come soon!

April 2010 Postal Constituent



The Great Moments in Western Civilization Postal Constituent's April Issue is finally here! It's a triptych of three color screen prints documenting some very notable duels. This issue is taking me a little longer to make, but it should be well worth the wait. I will be mailing them out by the end of the week.

MoCCA 2010,




Just got back from New York. MoCCA was lovely. I almost made back the cost of my table and I met a ton of great people. I tabled next to Zack Braun and the Trees and Hills comics group. Both parties were incredibly nice, shared their easter candy and have some great work you should check out. A fellow named Ken Wong had an amazing Schrodinger's cat comic in the form of a fortune teller. By the time he found me I had already sold out of my Schrodinger comic, but I'm going to send him one in the next few days. Any festival that has room for two Schrodinger comics is awesome in my book. I also met some folks who would have been my classmates at The Center for Cartoon Studies. (I would have started there last fall but was offered a Scholarship at UB at the last minute.) Nomi Kane, Beth Hetland and Paul Swartz all had great work. I met a ton of other people and traded lots. I came back with a huge stack of comics so I will try to post some more pictures and links in the next few days.

If you are just checking out my work for the first time you should become a fan on facebook here. I use the fans page to notify people when new comics are up.

Finally here are some bad pictures of the gussied up version of the Alphabet of Reasoned Failure I made last week for the first year MFA show here at UB, which opens THURSDAY.

The end papers are my favorite.
