Hippo Holiday Let's Eat!

It's a break in the action as two hippos settle down for a meal near the miners' gorge. How long can their tranquility last, though, with such an epic battle brewing below?

If you like This American Life, Serial, and books, listen to The Yarn

+Colby Sharp and Travis Jonker have launched an ambitious season of podcasts about books and the people who make them. This is another entry into the sculpted audio storytelling that you find in shows like This American Life and Serial. If you're a fan of those shows, I think you'll love this.

Listen to the latest episode with +Raina Telgemeier!

Boulder and Fleet in 3D (sorta)

Okay, so that #inkspace app is pretty fun, especially if you have a stylus for your phone or tablet. You tilt your device as you draw and the app changes the drawing planes.

More on InkSpace here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cc.openframeworks.inkSpace

Thanks to +Anthony KR​ for pointing me at it!

Robo Force's CRUEL THE DETONATOR

http://toyfinity.blogspot.com/2015/08/the-life-and-times-of-cruel-detonator.html?m=0

Toyfinity (the company for whom I draw the Robo Force comic), just revealed the new Cruel figure, along with backstory.

It's been a lot of fun seeing the new designs come together for these classic characters, and the latest mock-up looks pretty good!

A Creative Commons in Chelsea, Michigan

http://igg.me/at/chelseacreativecommons/x

A group in Chelsea, Michigan wants to restore a 90-year-old schoolhouse and turn it into a shared work space and theater for creatives in the area.

Having grown up in an rural area (more rural than Chelsea), where access to art and arts education was rare, I can tell you that something like this would have been a godsend to me and the other kids like me. Here's hoping they can make it work!

Jason Shiga's Demon to be published by First Second!

The Nerdist just broke the news that +jason shiga's crowdfunded graphic novel Demon will be published by First Second in 2016.

You can see what the fuss is about on Jason's Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/shiga
Jason Shiga makes labyrinthine comic books. He’s created a grip of graphic novels, 20 comic books, and the world’s second largest interactive comic book. There’s a sense, in his work, of piecing a puzzle together, that he and reader are weaving a tapestry together and that nothing is sacred. Not even the standard structural form of a comic book. Shiga has been pushing the boundaries of comics for a while now. It’s clear when you read – or experie...

I've decided to move the updates to Boulder and Fleet: Adventurers for Hire to Wednesdays. Which means no update tonight!

But to thank you for your patience, I drew a little B&F thing to celebrate back to school season!

Cartoonist and teaching artist.
Introduction
As a cartoonist, I've worked for publishers and self-published my own comics stories. Here's a list of some things I'm known for:


I also work as a freelance illustrator (here's my portfolio). Some of my past clients include:
  • Marvel Comics

I'm a teaching artist as well, which is one of my favorite jobs. I teach comics classes and lead presentations on comics year-round in the southeast Michigan area and beyond. Here are some of the places at which I've led classes or presentations:

I co-organize the annual Kids Read Comics Celebration, a free comics event that offers a family-friendly artist alley, drawing demos, and free hands-on workshops for kids and adults.

Lastly, I'm known for creating audio and video shows about comics. I host a weekly show recorded live at the Ann Arbor District Library called Comics Are Great! along with many other shows available on my website.
