I’m trying to get a sketch card drawn during break each day at the day job. Some are better than others, but with the Legion there’s almost no limit to characters to draw.

b-one FUNZIES!

b-one FUNZIES! Uh, oh. Not another author draws himself into a comic strip! I used to do it a whole lot around the turn of the century. Wow, that makes me sound really old. Anyway, I used to do egotrip comics online back then. Maybe I'll dust off the old back up hard drive and see if I can locate them. They were a hoot, and were also a four panel strip.

I like this strip even if I'm not fat enough in it. Nor bald enough. One of these days I'll get it right. A word of advice to all if you do autobio comics; don't gain weight once you learn to draw yourself! Or go bald. Or listen to any of my advice.

Please enjoy responsibly,

Asthma 2002

2002 in the year of our lord I was afflicted and diagnosed with asthma. Not asthma attacks or what you would see portrayed on television.  Rather, my lung capacity was diminished to 25% of what it should have been.  I was out of work for eight months during that time.
One of the main medications was prednisone, a steroid, that is widely known to cause the user to gain weight and or swell up. The good news is that I had time to read and draw comics.
I'm not sure but I think this was supposed to be published in the never finished, never published b-one comics volume one #4. No touch ups done on this image. The paper aged oddly.

King Bone Press: The Early Years

In February of 2001 I painted this little postcard sized self portrait. Not a very good painting or likeness but I did seem to like it at the time. I don't know which came first, this or the ink drawing of the same image. What I do know is that the ink drawing  was used for the initial King Bone Press logo. This was long before Westhoff joined, and subsequently took over 95% of the KBP publishing duties, and adorned the back covers of the three issues of b-one comics volume one. I have not been able to locate that particular piece of artwork but when I do I'll be sure to post it.

Not all change is good, but holy hell am I glad that I got rid of this thing once we started publishing again years later.

High School Drawings!

I should have been paying attention in class, but I drew this Spidey in May of 1993. 21 freakin' years ago. When I had hair on my head.

Looks like felt pen ink and ballpoint pen colors.

Was it ten years ago or longer when I was taken to see a play called N*gger W*tback Ch*nk? Also known as N*W*C. I remember liking it very much but what really stood out to me is when I examined the playbill, shown here, and saw that Steven T. Seagle was one of the writers. I was a big fan of Seagle's work on Sandman Mystery Theatre at the time and was pleasantly surprised to see his name on it.

I found this while moving some stuff around in the garage because I was working on my truck. Sometimes being a packrat has its advantages.

Anyway the play is about childhood expectations, prejudice, and coming to terms with racial identity.

Hey look, they're still at it.
