World, Have Your Say


Are there any images of mine that you wish would exist in print form?
A particular calendar page you wish didn't have the month printed at the top, or perhaps something you've seen in a book or on my website?
Have your say!
Please tell me in the comment section!

Updates from Home

Hi Everyone.

1. I have officially been home from tour for a week.

2. My computer promptly caught viruses/had hard drive failure upon my return, and was taken to the kind surgeons at Red Star Machine Works, where a hard drive transplant was performed. It is now as good as new, giving me the joy of listening to podcasts whilst working on comics (instead of listening to NPRs coverage of the oil spill and wanting to jam my brushpen into my eye as a result).

3. If you emailed me over the past month about anything, like zine distribution or pet portraits or even just a love/hate letter, I will get to it I Promise.

4. I almost forgot to tell you that my friends Ariel and Aron Nels Steinke got married recently and I made them this portrait as a gift!

5. You can order Dope Flounder, the comic I submitted to for Free Comic Book Day here . Subscribers, I may try to wrestle some of these out of the hands of Tugboat Press / Sparkplug Comics for you. We Shall See!

6. SUBSCRIBERS: I put out 20 copies of issue 17 of Invincible Summer for tour, but I have to say I really want to make it better before I commit to making enough copies for the world. I appreciate your patience!

7. Turning in my graphic novel on June 1st. Aye yay yay.

Take care.


P.S. I got my hands on a copy of The Unsinkable Walker Bean by Aaron Renier, and I can't recommend it highly enough! Run don't Walk to pre order this young pirate adventure, or sit on your hands until September & snatch it up in person!

I'm Home From Tour!

Hi friends.
I am home from tour, and now understand why it is that people eat baby carrots.
I've started taking pet portrait orders again, and am slowly getting back on track.
Thank you to everyone who came out, especially this nice girl in Wisconsin who showed up with 2 NJG tattoos! Holy Cow!
