Since then, I've been doing Max Overacts on my site, OcassionalComics.com which was nominated for an Eisner Award in 2011, and updates monday, wednesday & fridays (though right now it's tuesdays and fridays because I need to slow down before I hurt myself.)

Not the greatest at this whole social media thing, but I'm posting here to give it a go anyway! I'd really love to win this Muppets comp over at Threadless - http://www.threadless.com/themuppets/sweetums-balloon-rental/ - If you're a fan of any of my muppet pieces in my folio, or the Muppet Thor 24 hour comic I did, or just how I draw them, this is a chance to get my take on the lovable troupe on an actual t-shirt! If you have the time, please throw me a $5 vote, maybe leave a nice comment. The $2,000 prize will also go a long way to getting me back on track with my webcomic, Max Overacts. The more I can earn from my own art and ideas, and

Hi all! This is just a quick note to say thanks - again! - for all the favourites, likes, shares, etc. that my Catwoman Cat Lady pic got. Also just to address the many people who have requested it as a print... Seeing as none of my own characters are in this piece of artwork, I don't feel comfortable making it a print on this site.

Now I know DC and Marvel let artists go crazy

For anyone who's seen my work here, you know it mostly stems from a weekly sketch challenge I do over at Comic Book Resources on their Comics Should Be Good blog, run by the seemingly sleep-is-unnecessary-to-me Brian Cronin. With mounting work pressures, and the feeling I've got all I can out of mostly corporate icon comic book mashups, it's time to move on to other things. Dan, and George - the other two artists who have been along since the beginning - are also leaving, which means THREE spots are open to take our place. If you think you can handle the tight turn-around of doing one sketch a week indefinitely, I recommend getting in on t

So basically a timeline where Copyright never existed and crossovers like these can happen. Sweet!

Hello, Canada!:flagofcanada: 
Hello, I have sent a note about a commissioned project. :D
What an amazing collection of witty, charming and thought provoking art. I have never laughed so much, or wanted to favor so many pictures before.

Thank you very much for sharing your talent.
I love it when people laugh! That's what I'm here for. If you like my sense of humour though, you should really follow a link to my comic, Max Overacts. You may just laugh some more. ;)

Thanks!
