The Nothing Better cast. Not sure what I’ll use this for. Can’t decide how to finish it (the type at the bottom mostly).

Something to make you think as we welcome 2014.
Interesting process on this one, done while out of town. Penciled in my sketchbook, ‘scanned’ using my iPad’s camera, then inked and colored digitally. I may try and do more of these little comic ‘essays’ this year…

The last five pages of Nothing Better #15, penciled! When I stopped work on NB in lieu of paid work, I don’t know why I didn’t just finish these last five. They’re coming!

Reading through my 97% complete Raised on Ritalin rough draft before I write the conclusion. (Hoping to trim a little fat too!)

Time for a new sketchbook. #18 lasted almost exactly three years. I usually go through them a lot faster but the last two years have been mostly writing and research for Raised on Ritalin, and Chicagoland art duties. The bulk of #18 is filled with rough layouts, sketches, and notes for RoR.

My Resumé in Comics. Started this a year or two back and never finished it once I realized how many jobs I’ve had. Though detailing my 9 months as a Laser light show producer/animator would be pretty fun.

New ‘Raised on Ritalin’ pages are finally here! Thirty-nine of’em to be exact. This is part one of Chapter 4 and all of Chapter 5. I’m really happy with how this is turning out so far. Now the challenge is to finish up the full rough draft and find a publisher!
