In an effort to not fade away off the internet, I've started posting roughs, sketches, and miscellaneous things - some old, some new - on a Tumblr page. That's what all the kiddies are using these days, or something :p

Going to San Diego Comic Con? Find me in the mornings at booth 5535 in the IP Pavillion with 4th Dimension Entertainment, or in the afternoons at M-13, Small Press section, with Th3rd World Studios. I'll have copies of Phoenix Requiem (Volumes 1 & probably 2) as well as my brand new comic Finding Gossamyr. Come say hello! :D

Sorry everyone, after a crazy busy month job hunting and cramming in as much related study material as possible, deviantArt sorta dropped off my radar of things to check!

So anyway, a couple of updates:

-Phoenix Requiem Book 1 is NOW SHIPPING! If you preordered, you should be getting your copy very soon! The first hundred or so preorders will go out first,  then the rest are in a shipment currently sitting in CA awaiting government inspection (which hopefully won't take too long >.<)

-I'm currently about to start prep work & cover art for Book 2, so there should be some news on that some time in the next month or two.

-Trying to live off commissions turned out to be a bust, so I had to find a day job again. This means I no longer have time for commissions. A huge thank you to everyone who bought one while I was unemployed, it really helped and I think I've gotten a lot better at art thanks to them as well!

-Work on Finding Gossamyr is starting to ramp up now too!

Much <3 to all and I hope to be a little more regular on dA again :)

This is a repost of 4DE's dA Journal: If you haven't read it, please do! I absolutely love Lackadaisy (one of the very few webcomics that I actually bought a print copy of) and an Eisner award would be well deserved.


As you may have heard, Lackadaisy has been nominated for the Eisner award for Best Digital Comic.

As its publisher, I would be remiss if I did not make an honest effort to help Lackadaisy cross the finish line, because if it actually did win, it would simply be beyond awesome and wonderful. And, I know, I am certainly biased as its publisher, but I publish Lackadaisy for a reason: because I love the story and characters and believe in it. Moreover, I believe in Tracy, who works tirelessly, always foregoing sleep, and her own social life, opting instead to bring Lackadaisy to life.

I am humbly asking that anyone out there who is eligible to vote and enjoys Lackadaisy to please consider it as your choice for Best Digital Comic when voting.

Voting for the Eisner Awards is currently going on and will continue though June 13th at (or by paper ballot if you want to print one up and send it in).

If you fit into any of the following categories, you are eligible to vote:

-Comic book, or Graphic Novel creators (writers, artists, cartoonists, pencillers, inkers, letterers, colorists)

-Webcomic creators (writers, artists, cartoonists, pencillers, inkers, letterers, colorists)

-All nominees in any category

-Comic book/graphic novel publishers and editors

-Comics historians and educators

-Graphic novel librarians

-Owners and managers of comic book specialty retail stores

Again, if you, or anyone you know fits into any of these categories, I am humbly requesting that you consider Lackadaisy as your pick for Best Digital Comic when you cast your votes for the 2011 Eisner Awards.

You can read all the Lackadaisy comics to date at:

And, you can vote on the Eisners at:

I thank you sincerely for your time and consideration.

Due to a flood of extra commercial work, and a LOT more commissions than expected, there have been some delays in getting through the pile. I've managed to get through half the commissions, but still have about 18 to go. I DO INTEND to complete them all, however, if you decide to cancel because I'm all slow and horrible and broke my two-week word and stuff, I won't be offended. I don't want anyone to cancel of course, just saying :)

There is a spot on the left-hand side of my main page here that lists a queue of vague descriptions, so you can sort of see how far down the stack you are :)

Thanks for your patience! :love:
