All six Sweet Science prints now available.

My labor of love is finally complete! All six beautiful Sweet Science prints are now available for order.

These museum quality giclées are professionally printed on high quality, 14" x 18" cotton rag paper. The prints will be strictly kept to a print run of 100, and each will be signed and numbered by me.

For those who purchase multiple prints, you'll enjoy a 15% discount on your entire order. In addition to that orders of multiples will only be charged shipping costs of only one print.

So, the more the merrier!


PS - Look for an 8" x 10" open edition version of the prints soon!

Sweet Science prints pre-order

Hey everyone,

So, you all know about the Sweet Science prints I've done. The limited edition prints are all going to be about 14" x 18" archival prints on beautiful cotton rag paper. They're stunning, believe me! They'll be strictly limited to 100, so when they're gone they're GONE!

Well, I've decided to do a smaller, open edition version of the prints. These will be 8" x 10" giclée prints on a really nice heavy stock water color paper. I got a small batch of them in, and they're really fantastic! The ink is rated to last 200 years, and the water color paper really enhances the painterly quality of the prints.

They'll be more affordable too, priced at 20 bucks.

The REALLY good news is that I'll be taking pre-orders for the entire series, both open and limited edition, and offering a 30% discount on all the prints! I think I'll make the pre-order period about 2 weeks or so before I start sending orders out.

Anyway, look for more about this soon.

Sturgeon River

You know, sometimes I forget to tell you folks about my "other" book - Sturgeon River. I loved working with Steve Murphy so much on Umbra that I signed on to this new graphic novel of his. It's drastically different then Umbra, but really damned good. I started this around the same time I started Un-men, and will be finishing up around the same time as the series ends. Kinda funny how that worked out.

Anyway, here's a sneak peek.


PS - Murph has been posting inked and lettered pages over at his blog, if you're interested.

Un-men Tuesday 5/13

Hey everyone!

Man, it is entirely too beautiful today here in Central PA! After a few days of straight rain, it was hard to resist working outside. Thing is, I almost forgot it was Tuesday!

Anyway, issue 10 is supposed to be out today. So, here's the official FIRST look at issue 11, which is a one issue story focusing mainly on Kilcrop and his relationship with Crainius. A odder couple there may never be!

OBEY Hawthorne part II

Remember I mentioned I was going to enter an OBEY Giant t-shirt design contest? Well, I wrapped it up last weekend and sent it in. I had too much fun riffing on Shepard's work, and adding a lot of me into the mix. I'll let you all know once they OK'd it for inclusion into the contest.

Here's how it would look on an actual shirt.

OBEY Hawthorne!

I'm working on a piece for an OBEY GIANT shirt design contest. I'm a fan of Shepard, and would love to get to work this thing on a real shirt.

Anyway, here it is with no colors. Can't wait to finish it and enter this bad girl!
