Live Portraits Tonight

Tonight I'll be at In God We Trust's Greenpoint location at 70 Greenpoint Ave for this party, drawing people or drawing whatever people with 20 bucks want me to draw. I'm having cards printed as I write this to give out. I'm getting 4 different ones made. Here's one of them:

Come tonight and collect all four PGCs (Promotional Gelgud Cards)! And get your portrait drawn! Or just come to party! There is also going to be swag I think and straight razor shaves and Free Tattos. And also free tequila. Why did I say that last?

Roger Ebert Meets Charles Bukowski

The new Smoke Signal all-comics newspaper is out. You can pick one up in Brooklyn at Desert Island on 540 Metropolitan (and a few other places, like Daddy's) for free. You can also mail order one. Here are the first few panels of my contribution to this great publication:

Gabe Fowler of Desert Island is unstoppable. When I first met him he was all "I'm gonna open a comics shop." Yeah, right. Five months later a mutual friend was asking me "Have you been to Gabe's store yet? It opened last week." A few months after that he was all "I'm gonna publish a free, all-comics newspaper with both unknown talent and established comics masters." Okay, Gabe, sure. Three months later the first issue was out. Around that time he was all "I wanna have a comics festival in Brooklyn." I thought he was thinking out loud, fantasizing. Three months later the first installment of this happened, and the next one is happening in December, with special guests already lined up. If Gabe wasn't playing for the good guys, we'd all be in serious trouble.

Book Covers

Pretty soon you'll be able to buy stuff I've drawn at In God We Trust stores, including my series of Book Covers as Original Art. There will also be affordable portraits of authors and another series of portraits that's still in the works. Prints will eventually be available also.

In the meantime, if you're interested in getting a custom book cover go here.
