The Phantom by boston-joe
The Phantom
Another bust from last week. I'll post a few more over the next few days. I haven't drawn any new ones, but I'll get to some more soon.

Dick Tracy by boston-joe
Dick Tracy
I did a bunch of busts for some kickstarter incentives. So far, there have been eight. I may do a little sketchbook once I get 20 or so done.  They are all pulp, or pulp type characters.

  • Listening to: podcasts: Anthony Cumia, Gilbert Gottfried, others
  • Reading: An Andre the Giant graphic novel
  • Watching: over the garden walls, curb your enthusiasm
  • Playing: Original Nintendo games
  • Eating: leftovers
  • Drinking: chivas, coffee, beers, water, coffee
It's been over a year since my last entry here. A lot of things have gone on.

3 months ago I quit my full time job. The pay was decent, there were benefits, I enjoyed working with most of the staff, and it was secure. But with all those things, I still loathed going to work. There's an odd type of stress when managing other employees (good, or bad). There's also a greater stress when supervisors micro manage your way of working. 


So, I said "fuck it". 


I've been freelancing since. 


I love it. I'm not stressed. There's no one telling me how to do my job. I can just draw. Even with the inconsistent cash flow, I wouldn't change a thing. 

Ive expanded my presence on different forms of social media. Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter. I post a lot of process work and sketches there that I don't post here. So please check those out if you frequent those sites. 

Im making some good progress on "the diver" thanks to my buddy Andrew MacLean. I go to his studio once a week and work on diver pages while he works on his own projects. I'm coloring a book that Andrew is drawing for a company called "lionforge". I also have a story in Sean Murphy's "cafe racer", that is now available (I have copies for sale for those who are interested). And lastly, my friend Chris Irvin and I are working on a pitch to submit to some publishers. It's a fun story, and he already has 3 issues written (out of 4). If picked up, I'll be doing the art for all 4 issues. 

Here are the links of where I can be found:



Thanks for reading. Now to get back to commissions and pages.
