Some lousy news and a request from artist Steve "Whiteout" Lieber regarding his upcoming book with Jeff Parker. Take a look and spread the word.

Nothing gets me into the seasonal spirit like zombies, so Tor.com is publishing a new zombie holiday cartoon by me every day from today through Jan. 2 - it's "The 12 Days of Zombie Christmas!" Take a look.

Cats! Zombies! SCIENCE! Through the miracle of quantum mechanics, a brilliant physicist bearing a strange resemblance to Erwin Schrödinger has produced the perfect undead feline - or has he? Go now to see the first installment this week at Tor.com.

Meme schmeme

Right, photo meme: "Take a picture of yourself right now. Don’t change your clothes. Don’t fix your hair. Just take a picture. Post that picture with no editing. Include these instructions."



Meh, not bad. But with a cat...


Ah, much better!

Kwame comics


Hey all, long time no post.

Just wanted to direct you to the comic and illustration I drew regarding the resignation of Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick in the free weekly here. No new info for those who've followed the saga, but hopefully it's a fun read in any case.

Plus I got interviewed on local public radio about it, so that was a first!

This thing kinda ate my lunch this past weekend, and helped screw up my deadline day on Monday too, but hopefully it was worth it. We even did it old-school Marvel style; I got a rough layout with no dialogue, did the finished art, then the writer filled in the text afterwards. Excelsior!

Well, it was a close deal, but I managed to get a kinder, gentler, Sunday brunch-style Dr. Sketchy put together in time for the last day of September. We did it at the local cafe and featured none other than wife my Sophia as the model.

It was cool, actually! Everyone seemed to like the laid-back atmosphere and the chance to draw from the natural light of the cafe's front window. A couple folks brought their kids along (generally a no-no when we're drawing burlesque dancers at the bar) and call me biased, but Soph's a lot of fun to draw, especially when she brings along some of her many, many costumes. (We'll do the Frida outfit next time, honey!)

To Hell and back


So there's this tiny little town in Michigan, a little more than an hour north and west of Detroit, called Hell, and the friendly, good-humored folks who live there are very good at capitalizing on its name (which is fortunate 'cause there's not much else going on there). In Hell, MI, no one's ever heard of Ministry, but every day is Halloween anyway. Last weekend Soph and I went there to check out the Just Hearse'n Around car club show, buy knick-knacks and eat pumpkin ice cream. We made a great little mini-vacation out of it. Photos of the many creepy stiffmobiles on display are here:

How to milk a concept


So this is my cover illustration for this week's Metro Times. The cover story is about local authors and small presses around Michigan. Someone on the editorial staff remembered a drawing I'd done years ago (around 2000) for an MT in-house promo ad and thought it'd make a good cover. Except I'd already recycled that drawing in 2005 for an ad promoting another literary supplement, the annual fiction contest! Oh well. I redrew the image, amped it up a little and added color, and everyone on staff loved it, so there it is.

I'm fond of it, though it's really just an angst-ified version of the "duck hitting a computer with a hammer" art that every office on earth has a 100,000th-generation photocopy of, tacked up in a cubicle somewhere.

Leave a pretty corpse


Tonight was the closing reception for the Hatch group's current show, an exhibit of Exquisite Corpses displayed at our local cafe. Each participant created 4 different body section and they were all mixed 'n' matched to produce the final result. Here are my four sections. (I'd started with a "7 deadly sins" theme but abandoned it for a general "angels vs. devils" motif, without deciding whose side I was on.) Also here's an article on the Hatch group that's a better explanation of the collective than anyone in it could've written, to our frustration!
