Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Here is a cartoon of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe that I did as a present for some acquaintances at the Goethe Zentrum Atlanta.

If you've never been to your local Goethe Institut, you are missing out!
They have German Language classes, Films, Lectures, and more.
There's also an exhibit promoting German cartoonists that is traveling to various locations around the world. It is called:
"Comics, Manga, & Co. : Die neue deutsche Comic-Kultur."

Theatre Posters

Here are some illustrations I did recently for the Firehouse Theatre Project in Richmond, Virginia. I did the pictures, and the marketing director did the graphic design.


"Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" usually features the character Maggie the Cat on the posters.


I read some essays about the play, however, and they posited Maggie's husband Brick as the main character.


I wanted my poster illustration to stand out from past depictions of the play, so I decided to feature Brick more prominently.


One of the great pleasures of these projects was actually reading the plays that I made illustrations for.
"Why Torture is Wrong and the People who Love Them" is a hilarious dark comedy by Christopher Durang about post 9-11 America.



I also tried out an illustration for a poster combining the elements of three short plays, but it was not used. That picture is posted below.

Handmade and Bound Festival 2011

Okay, I realize this blog has been inactive for way too long. I am a real lout for not posting more frequently. The good news is, if you're in the Nashville area on October 1st, you can come out and scold me in person!

I just finished folding and stapling a slew of 'Zines and Minis, and I am proud to announce that I'll be tabling at the Handmade and Bound Festival at Watkins College of Art, Design, and Film.
I'll have my most recent mini comics: "A Dystopian Present" and "The Highlight of the Prague," as well as a few classics!


Leave me a comment if you can make it!
See y'all in Nashville!

FLUKE 2011

Last weekend (April 23rd), I attended the 10th anniversary celebration of FLUKE, a mini-comics convention in Athens, Georgia!


I got to hob-nob with many of the Southeast's preeminent mini-comics creators and see their newest work, as well as peddle my own comics. It was a great convention, held at the famous 40-Watt club.
I also contributed a four-page comic to the FLUKE 2011 Anthology. For those readers who missed the convention this year or didn't pick up an anthology, I have posted it below.

Bas Bleu Cover, Spring 2011

Here is a cover illustration that was commissioned by the Bas Bleu book catalog for one of their Spring 2011 issues.


I actually like the black and white drawing better than my final color version because the focus is clearly on the girl's face and head.


Below are some sketches I did from books on flowers, as well as a rough sketch of the girl.
