Mystery House 6x6 Fund Raiser.

This year I will be part of a comic book from local independent publisher Mystery House Comics. For the past few years they have published the anthology 6x6. A book that teams six writers with six artists all working on a common theme. This year the theme is "Fortune" and I'll be illustrating a 5 page story by Steve Willhite (a very talented artist himself!)

Recently Mystery House launched a funding campaign for the book and could use your help. They are offering a number of goodies for every level of support. They range from original art to previously published works. If you're interested in getting some stuff while helping out - follow the links below. And thanks in advance for your support!

Wolfie in Delicious Dolls Magazine!

The new special edition of Delicious Dolls magazine is out and a few of my shots of Necrowolfie are on page 21. This is the May 2017 "Military Issue" and shows Wolfie in a uniform hat and jacket from a country that I can't remember! (Maybe someone out there knows.) This is the first time Necrowolfie has appeared in Delicious Dolls. Below you'll find a link to get a copy, along with the cover, contents page and a shot of Wolfie that wasn't used.

This year my model for the art was a shot of Wolfie. The picture posted shows the original shot before all the digital work. See the final version of "Vespiary" on my website home page or on the 3x3 site.

Missing from the Directory of Illustration 33

I had planned to continue to advertise in the Directory of Illustration and even bought a page, but it turns out I won't be there next year. After submitting my ad (see below) I got phone calls and emails from the Directory asking me to change the ad. They were never specific and changed the reasons they wanted a different ad. During one of the calls they asked if I was "worried about what female art directors might think." I was given a number of options of what the Directory thought my ad should look like and was even pointed to the ads of other artists that I should "copy," but at no time did they ever say exactly what the problem was with my ad.
I kept insisting that the choices I made for my ad showed the type of work I'm doing now, it is all recent work and two pieces (the medusa label, and the "Pussy Whip" whip cream label) are recent national design award winners. So isn't that the work I should be showing? So have a look at it and decide for yourself.

San Diego Comic Con 2016

I had a good time at Comic Con this year in San Diego. It was good to see people I know and talk to artists who produce impressive art.
I had nice conversations with Craig Elliot about mothers and other family members, Bill Stout about how John Milius and I have similar methods to present ideas to those that make the decisions, and Daniel Clowes (while signing my copy of Mr. Wonderful) let me know that I look just like his brother. Clowes suggested that I attend a family function with him and when I agreed I don't think he realized that I was serious. So if you know Dan let him know I'm waiting for an invitation.

I also, for the first time in awhile and the first time in color, got a piece of art in the souvenir book. My art was for the 50th anniversary of the TV show Batman. I was inspired by the Norman Saunders trading cards from the 60s and ironically my art was printed at the size my friends and I refer to as "bubble gum card size" or a quarter page. My art can be found on page 172. I also sent in Wonder Woman art - but it wasn't used.

Gothesque Magazine Phobias & Superstitions!

My first set for Gothesque Magazine is in the new July 2016 vol. 2, Phobias and Superstitions issue. They feature talented, Texas model Emma Anne with a plastic bag on her head. The photos explore the idea of Claustrophobia. I was lucky to work with Emma Anne while staying in Texas last year.

Here's an unpublished shot from the set.

Below are the cover, contents page, and a link to Gothesque where you can see more and get a copy of the issue.
