Juxtapoz Knowz Whatz Up

They wrote about M. Carter's Faces of Death tee (that I contributed to). Check it here.

Dust Jacket

Made this for a friend last week. One of the times that Woody Allen was on Dick Cavett they were talking about the idea of a perfect work of art, and one of the examples Cavett used was a story by Jean Stafford. That was the first I'd ever heard of her.

Cover illustration inspired by her story "In the Zoo."

Ilmmatic outfit, Staff!

The part you see the most if you own it.

Smoke Signals Three is Out

Read my latest published comic, "The First Literary Work of HonorĂ© de Balzac," in the new Smoke Signals, the free all-comics newspaper printed and distributed by the indefatigable Gabe Fowler at Desert Island. The issue debuted at FABCGN (which totally went off). You can pick up SS3 at the store and other places, like maybe your favorite bar.

Final Month at Brooklyn Collective

My time is almost up. So if you haven't gone to Brooklyn Collective yet, and you want to see some of this stuff up close, or want to buy something from a fancy store with cash or credit (like a grownup) instead of Paypal, you still can. Go get my zine or something. Haggle a little and see what happens and then let me know what happened. It's kinda near Ikea so you could go there after. You don't have to go to Ikea. Then you could take the ferry into lower Manhattan. Then go to the J. Crew at South Street Seaport. They take Paypal there.*

Man, can you get some cool stuff at Brooklyn Collective. You could get a drawing of Jonathan Richman. You could get a drawing of Jean-Pierre Leaud, Claude Jade, and Delphine Seyrig in Truffaut's Stolen Kisses. Or you could just go see this stuff.


*They don't take Paypal there.

Inspired by the Movie "Stalker"

Here's a small jpeg of the drawing I did that is inspired by Tarkovsky's movie Stalker. It's small so you can't just download it and print it for free because I know you want it so bad. It's framed now, 8.5/11", hanging up at Brooklyn Collective. So go check it out there.

Smoke Signal Subway Story

Now that SS #1 is all gone I figure it's time to post up what I had in there. I like the way it came out and it looks good on newsprint. But you don't get to know that if you didn't already I guess because it's sold out. (Given away.)

Page Six is a Jerk to Actors it Claims to Like

Boom! Stayed up last night and did this in one sitting because usually I take like two or three days to do these and I wanted to see how it would work to do it fast. Turns out they're not that hard as long as I don't mind only half of the heads having a likeness. It's from a Page Six feature called "Fifteen Actors We Wish Were Bigger Stars." The best thing about it is the advice they give these people they say they want to help, like "Be down with Judd Apatow" or "Star in a movie." (Paraphrasing.) They tell Brittany Murphy to get a life coach. Hey Brittany, we wish you the best you moron. Nice one, guys.

Dog Days of Summer?

Amazing. This was on the inside of an apartment door that was propped open. That's how I got to see it.

Bigger Stuff

I want to do some bigger-scale stuff after working on this piece. A woman commissioned this to give to her husband for father's day because that right there is his grandpop.

How about a portrait of your favorite athlete, sitcom star, deceased relative, or pet? Get in touch or check this out.

Smoke Signal, a free all-comics newspaper

Desert Island put this together. It's all comics and it's FREE. And it's fantastic. Seriously, even if I didn't have a full page in it, it would still be fantastic. Okay, right now it's superfantastic. If I wasn't in it, it would still be fantastic. Wait, Elizabeth Bethea has a great page in there too. Okay, so right now it's superduperfantastic. If you took out mine or Elizabeth's comics, it would still be superfantastic. If you took both of ours out, it would still be fantastic. It's free, man. Stop complaining. Hellllllooo? DUH. You can get it at Desert Island, which is on Metropolitan near Union. It's right by the Metropolitan/Lorimer stop, so no excuses.
And if you're not in New York, they will mail you one for three crummy dollars. Whaaaat? Just go here. Desert Island is the coolest. Cool as dry ice. That's where the smoke's comin from. Smoke Signal, ya'll.

Are You Having a Baby?

I did a mural a few months ago for an expecting couple in Durham, NC. (Have you been to Durham lately? It's fun, man.) I'll do one for you if you want. For under a million bucks. We'll work it out.
