The Fires of Hell (Just Kidding!)

Kitty Pryde Update

I just recieved the press release for the Kitty Pryde show I wrote about recently:

The show is a fundraiser for the Hemophilia Treatment Center at OHSU. So we’ve asked dozens of comic artists, graphic designers, and illustrators to do their rendition of Kitty Pryde for this May’s First Thursday show. We’ll have original artwork and prints for sale and 100% of the proceeds go the the HTC.

WHO: Over 70 artists including: Bryan Lee O’Malley, Farel Dalrymple, Nathan Fox, Vasilis Lolos, Jeffrey Brown, Tom Neely, Brandon Graham, Corey Lewis, Zack Soto and more!
WHAT: Kitty Pryde tribute show, fundraiser for HTC
WHEN: Thursday, May 7th, 6-10pm
WHERE: Floating World Comics, 20 NW 5th Ave #101


Kitty Pryde is a lot of people’s favorite X-Man. The fact that she was an adorable thirteen year-old girl when she joined the X-Men might have something to do with it. She can “phase” through objects, which means she can walk through walls or have dangerous weapons pass right through her without killing her. Only Joss Whedon can kill her, but don't bring that up with Mr. Sherwood.


You can also view a smattering of work being featured in the show HERE.

Time Out New York - NYC Puppeteering

This had to be one of the most FUN assignments I've had in recent memory! Jeff Quinn called me up from Time Out New York and just said 'Puppets.' And do pretty much whatever you like. Yessss. I also did a handful of small puppet silhouettes to accompany the main illo. If you'd like to read up on modern puppet craft in nyc, you can read the accompanying article HERE.

Kitty Pryde

Yes, Kitty Pryde of the infamous X-Men. Done for a benefit - 'Full of Pryde' - being put together by the wondeful Jason Leivian at Floating World Comics in order to benefit Hemophilia research at the Oregon Health & Science University. Always feels good to put some art to work for a good cause!

Custom Home

A new piece for the wonderful Brian Walker at Custom Home. About how building contractors need to get creative in order to "break through" and thrive in these iffy times.
