It's Halloween! Today, for anybody interested, I'd like to share my newest (spooooky) story: The Snow, The Jungle. Included below is the first portion--if you'd like the rest, comment or PM me and I'll send it along!
On the fourth pale day of January, the hilltops were drowned in cloud. Heavy blankets came churning over the ridges of Montgomery County, tearing themselves to shreds on the naked forests and dumping their winter cargos. Snow drifted on the wind, racing over the narrow valleys and icy creeks. The bitter air squeezed against the branches, set dogs in the holler to cowering and men to sit above the cookin
Hey, everybody! Long time, no see. I'm going to have some art to post pretty soon, but right now I want to share some pretty cool news. My short story "The Wampus Mask" has just been published by the online magazine NAMELESS. And you can read it HERE for free!
What's it about, you might ask? It's about ancient horror. Desperate magic. Vengeance. It's about witches and ghosts and curses, about dark forests and high canyons. And it's about one young woman named Anna O'Brien, who is about to walk a path stranger than she could have ever dreamed....
So what are you guys waiting for? Head on over and take a look!
Hey everybody. You guys might have noticed a certain....lag in updates. This is not because of a loss of inspiration or anything particularly serious; I've just been running around so much this summer that I haven't really had time to draw. That, and I don't have a scanner. I'll be up in the mountains of North Carolina for the next two months recording folk music, which is cool. But I won't have a scanner there either. So basically, no new updates from me until August or so.
Till then, amigos!
Well, I love y'all too. I want to give a huge, huge thanks to everyone who's ever taken the time to stop by, peruse, or leave a comment. Thanks to the support of this community I've grown hugely as an artist, and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for it. But surely, the best is yet to come.
To 50,000 more, and beyond!

Hey, everybody! As you may or may not know, I blog for "Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs," a blog devoted to all things paleontological. With the recent release of John Conway and C.M Koseman's excellent All Yesterdays, we've decided to throw a little contest. But this one is different then the other two. In this one, we're looking for dinosaurs with style.
What kind of style? How about cubism? Art Nouvaeu? Impressionism? Pacific Northwestern Tribal? Cartooning? We want speculative behaviors and wild reconstructions, served up with distinct artistic flair.
