So I’m married to this amazingly talented woman, Cori Doerrfeld. She’s been working on this neat little series of Euro-influenced silent stories she’s hoping to develop into a series of picture books. You can read them all so far:

-"Help"

-"Soar"

-"Got You"

-"Paint"

-"Race"

-"Hero"

-"Ready"

And while you’re at it, you should check out her website too!

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!

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.

PROCESS

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything, anywhere, about my work process. Now is a good time to talk about it because I’ve made some changes over the last couple of years. I’m going to skip the writing and/or thumbnailing process and just focus on the making of the actual pages.

The amazing @CoriDoerrfeld’s Leah and the Owl storybook app is now available. Tell all your friends with kids!! It’s a great early reader with lots of fun/silly interactive bits. Our daughter, Charli, did an awesome job providing Leah’s voice too!

Announcing the STYLISH VITTLES 10TH ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION eBook!
Ten years ago I published a book called Stylish Vittles: I Met a Girl. It was the beginning of my professional comics career (such that it is). Two more books followed. 

I have put together a 10th Anniversary Collection  e-Book which includes all three original books, as well as the conclusion that came years later: Stylish Vittles 4 - Behind the Page: The Saga of Rob Harvard. Additionally I put together a “Director’s Cut” e-Book in which I eliminated all of the elements of the original books which seemed unnecessary to present a shorter, simpler narrative. Finally, included in the Deluxe Collection, are two Appendices: Appendix One is almost one thousand pages of process material - outlines, scripts, sketches, layouts, etc. Appendix Two contains all of the material I did which led up to the creation of the Stylish Vittles books.

Altogether, the Stylish Vittles 10th Anniversary Deluxe Collection contains over 2,000 pages of art, story, and process material! For Free!
Head THIS WAY to download your poison now!

(A full press release can be found HERE if you’re into that sort of thing.)

Ninja Turtles sketch! with all the TMNT talk online lately, I felt the urge to draw my old friends when I opened up my sketchbook yesterday. I used to draw the Turtles ALL the time. I was BIG into them. even a member of the official fan club. (and no, I am NOT in favor of them potentially being Bay-style aliens. nuh. uh.)

cover ideas for the Stylish Vittles 10th Anniversary Collection.
I Met a Girl came out 10 years ago! (eep.) despite the deep flaws of the work, I feel there’s still something worthy about it, especially the artwork from the later chapters. so I’m putting together an eBook that will collect all three volumes, warts and all. I’ve also toyed with the idea of making a ‘Director’s Cut’ that would trim away as much of the flawed stuff as I could.
