“Today’s Special”

Emme’s Aunt Diana and niece Andrea dropped by last week.  Andrea asked me to draw her something, so I did:

I’ve been really taken lately by how dramatic the cloud formations over Vermont have been.  We’ve had such a wet, humid summer it seems like the sky is just a few combining clouds away from another downpour.  This is also one of the more naturally occurring brush/pen combination pictures I’ve done.

And Andrea told me she plays soccer, so…

I Love Kristin Hersh

I’m working on “Recidivists” right now, a collection of anthology submissions that missed their deadlines. The biggest comic in it, Deanna’s Story, will be about a girl I’m modeling on Mrs. Hersh.

In the meantime, here’s a sketch based on her smashingly-excellent cover of the Beatles “Everybody’s Got Something To Hide (Except Me & My Monkey)”:

You can hear a bit of the song at e-music.

Frank Miller = Spirited Mayhem? Pt.1

I’m already sick of the sniping at Frank Miller’s Spirit movie, because I don’t know enough about The Spirit to join in.

Done In Dvorak

Today is Dvorak Day!

DV Zines

Okay… technically, it was yesterday. But I didn’t know until today, so celebrate now like it’s 1932!!! (Which was when, on May 21st, Dvorak first patented his simplified keyboard layout.) And so, in celebration, I’ve used a slow day at work to liberate my own keyboard and bring it around to the Dvorak way.

“Dvorak” is short for The Dvorak Simplified Keyboard Layout. The standard keyboard layout that most people use (QWERTY) was developed to overcome mechanical problems on the original typewriter almost 150 years ago – mechanical problems that no longer exist! In 1932 Professor August Dvorak scientifically designed an improved keyboard layout based on research and logic.” –from DVzine.org

Here’s my contribution to Steve Bissette’s birthday card we all put together. The title really should be “The Perfect Gift” or something. Also, I think “Petunia” would’ve been a funnier dinosaur name, but whatever.

I’m really proud of my inking.
