Quick set of sketches to show my soul crumbling to dust (and hair). Here’s a handy GIF for effect: The initial idea was started a bit differently, as per the drawings below, but ended up overworked to the point of embarrassing oblivion, so it will not be shown here (you’re welcome).
My mom and I started a podcast. Appropriately titled Drinks With Mom, we’re going to get together every so often and try a cocktail or other beverage and chat. The first episode, featuring Manhattans and some discussion about a speeding ticket she once found in my underwear drawer, is up now on all your favourite […]

The result was 3 quick illustrations based on court documents: some items police found in his possession, him getting into his truck […]
Best buds in the Republican Party.
Been listening to even more Bowie than usual lately and figured it was time for Dog Is Blue to cover one of his songs. “Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide” has always been a favourite (and a million years ago I tried it at an open mic and failed miserably). The cover art is a digitally painted, […]
It’s pretty obvious that my life peaked at 16 when I drew this shirtless, winged, motorcycle-riding, lightning-eyed man for my high school art class. At about 18×24″ and all pencil crayon, the original is a spectacle. If anyone has a van and an airbrush, let me know.
