A few commissions that I did early December.

5.5”x7” Ink/wash on bristol board and compressed cardboard.

The World's Strongest Mailman

I generally don't like to use a lot of photoshop artwork in my comics but I when Jon Westhoff specified the type of shirt that Svend would wear in my World's Strongest Mailman story I thought that it would be fun to create the pattern and photoshop it in. It's not a true pattern, it won't repeat as a fill pattern, but it was a nice change of pace for me. I posted the color version of the pattern for fun and you can see the final product here.

Check out The World's Strongest Mailman here. It's all ages fun and FREE!

Wow, this strip is getting grim isn't it?

Sometimes running out of bristol board isn't a bad thing, it let me experiment with this strip. I've always loved the black and white with red motif, but I really like how it works on this compressed cardboard.

If it wasn't apparent already, I have reached my (adjusted) goal of 100 strips and I will continue to do these as often as possible. I will post sporadically but by doing this strip I have kind of let my personal projects slip a bit and I'm DYING to get back to the Stonebrook gang.

Goofing Off

Last week Vince B of 11 O'Clock Comics posted some photo manipulations of people in various states of decay that he created. They were fantastic, especially the one where he showed a comprehensive process from original photo to the ghastly conclusion.

This is my inept version of that; a morbid self portrait.

I didn't spend much time on it, about half an hour. It's a composite of 5 different photos. Enjoy.

The World's Strongest Mailman

Hello everyone, it seems like it has been a long time. I haven't posted much lately although I did get to get to the 100th Boozehounds strip. I have been working on a story arc for Jon Westhoff & Bryan Boles' The World's Strongest Mailman.

Here's a promo image that I just worked up, borrowing the concept from regular series artist Bryan Boles. Look for it to post in about two weeks, but you can catch up on all the fun here.

One Hundred Boozehounds Strips! Huzzah!

Not much of a gag this week, but I felt like celebrating. I didn't do it alone either. Here's a link to the Guest Contributor strips. Thank you everyone that reads or helps promote my blog and of course all the guest contributors that kept this strip alive when I couldn't stay on schedule.

Interlude: Apocalypse...Meh

I'm currently working against a deadline for an online project that I'm working on with a friend so your regularly scheduled Boozehounds strip will be delayed. In the meantime I thought that it would be fun to revisit the very first Jon Westhoff/Bobgar Ornelas collaboration; Apocalypse...Meh!

It is a story that we will continue when time permits, but for now you can read the complete first volume for free at our friends' website Osmosis-Online.com here.

Will there be a 100th strip! What does this mean for the future of Boozehounds?

I took a picture.

I went for a walk the other day and took a picture with my cell phone. I turned it to grayscale and I'm pleased with it. It is rather somber. I look at it and it just feels like me.

I don't take too many photos that I really like, but Dan (leafinsect man) Pua maintains a blog and a thread for the 11 O'Clock Comics Photo a Day project. It's fun to do, a fun way to make friends or maintain them. I'm happy to join in when I can.

The blog is EOC Photo A Day

Here is My Member Gallery of only my pictures. There's a member gallery of every contributor too.

Blog curator and all around swell dude Dan Pua's website.

That's it. More comics from me soon.

Ryan is interested in stand up? Who knew?

Wednesday, October 3, 2012


Hey everyone. I know that I haven't been updating as consistently as of late. I've been a little tied up with other things. Fear not there will be more Boozehounds and more sketches posted. It is just a matter of finding the time to scan.

I just wanted to let you all know that I haven't quit. I'm not in hiding, just laying low for the time being.

EOC Sketchbook Challenge (September 2012)

A fun topic on the 11 O'Clock Comics forums. The EOC Sketchbook Challenge is Batman this month. This seemed like the right thing to draw.

EOC Sketchbook September 2012  check out the challenge. Nearly 200 pages of artwork by rookies and pros in all kinds of styles, media and themes. It's fun.

Not my finest hour, but I like angry rabbit so ...

It feels like it's been a while since I posted a new Boozehounds and it has. We're on our way to our 100th strip!

Swipe? Homage? Serendipity?

The top two issues are Dylan Horrocks' Pickle issue 9 & 10.
The bottom two issues are my b-one issues 3 & 5.

Was this an intentional swipe? Did I see some great design and bastardize it? I cannot truthfully say. It's been quite a while, but I've had a resurgence of admiration for Dylan Horrocks. Digging up these issues of Pickle to cover on the podcast I immediately noticed the similarities. I love these Pickle issues, the story the artwork, the paper and yes the cover design.

As you can tell the Horrocks Pickle cover design is far superior. It must have ingrained itself in my subconscious. There is also the EC Comics cover design connection but I think the Pickle/b-one similarities are closer together.

So did I swipe? Is it a homage? Serendipity? You decide.

It was bound to happen sooner or later. My first ever homage to Adventure Comics #247. The first appearance of the Legion of Super-Heroes who travelled back in time one thousand years just to bust Superboy's balls. Great bunch of kids right?

Is art imitating life? Is the artist speaking through the characters. OF COURSE. Freebird is overrated. Sorry people. Send hate mail to Jonathan Westhoff.

Happy Labor Day.

Ha ha, we have Tim O'Briant in the house! If you want to see quality and quantity he and Jon O. are killing it over at Strips 4. This was an unexpected submission, and I have been smiling ever since. There's so much to love on this strip.

Bob Fingerman & the Ground Zero compilation

Artwork copyright Bob Fingerman 1997.

I love Bob Fingerman's work. I don't have much of it, but I have some; Monkey Jank, Minimum Wage, You Deserved It etc. Oddly enough my favorite piece of his is this cd cover for Ground Zero Distribution dated 1997 by the artist and 1998 by the publisher. I was loading the cd onto my digital music and I realized that it had no artwork. So I searched online and came up empty. I may have been looking on the wrong places but I couldn't live without people knowing the beauty of this cover so I scanned it for you. It's not the best scan, granted, but just look at it. AMAZING!

I hope that I'm jut an idiot and this artwork has made it's rounds online at some point, if not here you go. I hope I'm not stepping on any toes, legal or otherwise.

Oh, and the compilation is great too. 27 songs, a lot of hxc.

The comic that Alan Moore doesn't want you to read.

Monday, August 20, 2012


Hey everyone, I just wanted to give you guys the credits for last week's Joe Kubert tribute strip. It was all thanks to Felipe Garza and Andy Tom. Both chose to run the strip without credits so as to keep the focus on the true message; Joe Kubert's impact on the comics industry in immeasurable and our loss incalculable.

Thank you Felipe & Andy for sharing with us.

Thank you Joe. For everything.

Ah yeah, Wendi Freeman of Double Page Spread Podcast guest writes today's strip!

That's the good news. The bad news is for the time being I will not be accepting Boozehounds scripts. I will still accept fully illustrated/written/colored/lettered submissions but at this time I'm going to have to scale my Boozehounds back a bit to focus on larger King Bone Press comics such as two "secret" projects and finally getting back to b-one.

Thanks for understanding everyone, but it's the busy season at the day job and it's eating more of my time than I expected. Seven full months of three strips per week (a couple exceptions) have taken their toll as well so I'm scaling the output to twice a week. :(

Let's stay positive even with the scale back, you'll still get a minimum of forty more strips by years end!

I just like saying Bunnicula, ok?

If anybody is really interested in process stuff, that's a photo of St Augustine grass. Yes, I specifically wanted it to be St Augustine and no I do not have any rational reason for that.

Happy 4th of July People. I wanted to experiment with coloring straight from pencils...it doesn't really work for me. The next one will be fully inked.

Be careful out there today whether you're lighting fireworks or having a drink. Be safe and we'll catch you on Friday.

Wanted to do something different. All PITT pens no brushes. Just for fun.

Now that it is colored it doesn't look all that different from my regular stuff.

The more that I look at what Andy Tom has done with this strip the more that I love it. You should check out his art and maybe commission something from him. Do it here.

Who wants to see me quit the strip and have Andy take over?
