This show is amazing. I have to say, I think that all four of us are at the top of our game, and each artist is presenting their best work to date. I'm really proud of this show. I'll post more pictures next week. But you can check out some pictures of the installation at the
Our show opens this Saturday! See the postcard below for info...

I have an art show with the
I have a lot of painting still to do.
I suffered my first ever art related injury the other night when a flimsy folding chair I was standing on decided to jump out from under me... I flipped through the air and found myself falling headfirst towards the concrete floor of my studio. I managed to save my pretty face by landing on my outstretched left hand, which jammed my arm straight into a part of my torso where it wasn't meant to be, leaving me with a horribly sore back and shoulder... I'm lucky I didn't break my arm or anything... Ironically I'm working on a painting of my main character all beaten and broken apart.
Moral of the story: when working on a 7 ft tall painting, don't stand on a flimsy, plastic folding chair from Ikea.

I sold out of my book, tuesday. And the new parody comic, Krayons Ego, was a huge hit and sold out as well.
Apparently there was some pact that the contributors to Krayons Ego wouldn't reveal themselves... But I wasn't in on that pact originally, and my ego makes me wanna tell everyone which pages I did. Here's one of the best reviews I've ever received for comics:
The rest of the books is great. I finally got to read it at Comicon last week, and laughed out loud at several of the pieces. I particularly like "Project Inferior" and the Jefferey Brown parody and the stab at the reigning king of parody,
So, as I promised last week, here are the pages I did for the book. Those of you who aren't familiar with the indie comics world, may not get these strips... they are ridiculous exagerations and inside jokes, but anyway here's a little explanation: As I mentioned before, my pages were a parody of

Oh jeez... it's time again for the biggest convention of the year... it's ridiculously huge, exhaustively-commercialized, and frightenningly over-populated with every variety of
Ahhh, I can't wait- I love it... then I hate it, then the delerium kicks in and I start to love it even more, and then it's Saturday and there's over 100,000 people there and it begins to crush my soul... but there's no other place I'd rather be this week!
This year I'll be with
I'm trying to finish a new mini in time (only 48 hours left to do that), but I will have copies of "tuesday." and "Henry & Glenn 4-ever".
And I have 6 pages in the parody anthology "Krayons Ego." This is a parody of the exceptional art-comix anthology
Here's a fake cover for the book. I'll post pages from it next week:

I've been really busy lately... I just finished writing a 200 page graphic novel. And now I have a lot of painting to do... I've got a show coming up in September at Black Maria Gallery in L.A. and it will be the inaugural show for my artist collective, Igloo Tornado. More details will be posted soon.
Here's a couple of studies I did for some new pieces.

Yes, it was really great. Just what I needed- get out of town (and away from all my troubles), see lots of friends, hang out in one of my favorite cities, and get lots of great new comics.
Here's what I got:
What else... Sold out of all the copies of "tuesday." that I brought with me. Got to hang out with all my
I added some new links to my sidebar: Zak Saly and his publishing front La Mano, Daria Tessler's Animal Sleep Stories website, and Tom Gauld. All of whom should be checked out by everyone. They are great!

I'm headin' to me old stompin' ground of San Francisco this week. This weekend is my favorite comic convention of the year:
Once again, I'll be sharing space with my pals at
What I'll have with me... The West-Coast debut of my latest comic "tuesday." A 26 page black & white comic about a man terrorized by a mysterious ink blot.
The newly pressed 3rd printing of Henry & Glenn 4-Ever by Igloo Tornado (Igloo Tornado is the artist collective that consists of Me, Levon Jihanian, Gin Stevens, and Scot Nobles). A 16 page black & white comic that presupposes a domestic relationship between Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig.
Igloo Tornado Gocco Postcards- designed and printed by
Igloo Tornado T-shirts in stylish olive green for boys and hot-pink for the ladies! Designed by Me and Scot Nobles.
I will also have some of my older comics with me, and possibly some original art for sale.
Also this week: Brett Reichman, my favorite painting teacher from the San Francisco Art Institute (where I got my MFA), has a show at
And Friday night- check out some of my friends at
So, come out to see me this week at the A.P.E., check out my new comics, and help me mend my broken heart (that's right ladies- I'm single again). I no longer have the easy-to-spot blue hair- just look for the guy with these on his arms:

Just a reminder that Survival of the Fittest is still up at Harmony Gallery through April 17th.
Seriously, it's the best show in town.
Go there, see it, and buy some art. It's all reasonably priced and it's all really great work. You don't need another pair of designer shoes, you need some art on your walls.
Also- there are iris prints of the "Snigerpus" artwork (pictured above) available for pre-order from the gallery for $150.

Nickelodeon Magazine has always had a great comic section that includes gag-strips by some of the best indie-cartoonists out there: Johnny Ryan, Sam Henderson, Kurt Wolfgang, Martin Cendreda, and many many more...
Well- I'm not in the comic section with those guys (though you should check them out, too), but I am on most of the pages of the magazine. If you look at the page numbers you'll see a little mini-strip I drew for them.
It starts with these two dudes on the first page...
Then there is a series of fight-clouds, with the page numbers in the center, scattered throughout the issue...
It all ends with the dudes thoroughly pummelled, but happy with the comic-book split between them. Ahhhhh, sharing- a nice message for the kiddies.
Hopefully I'll get to do more work for them in the future.

I don't know 'bout this art stuff.
Me and Miss Kathleen Lolley- she brought lotsa bourbon!
By the end of the night, the fabric of the universe became unstable... or maybe it was the bourbon.
Thanks to everyone for coming out and making it a fun night! Thanks to all the artists for their amazing work. Thanks to D.J. Algonquin for playing lots of great music from the '20s! And thanks to Dave, Laurie, Katie and Susan for helping us put the show together!
