i’ve been staring so hard at crappy images on a computer screen at work that my brain started oozing out of my ears and in order to recuperate i neglected all of you wonderful tumble-turds. but now i am free. we can be together again. 

Alice and the Dinoswords

i’ve been working on a little something with a friend for the past few months. she is moving to new york though, so i made her this to inspire long-distance communication so that we might finish it one day.

Pet Portrait for Jes H.

i love drawing dogs. they’re expressive and fun and come in many different sizes. but when are the crazy cat people going to start asking for pet portraits? i was born to draw cats!

a friend of mine is getting married this summer in south korea. he asked me to make his ‘please come in spirit’ wedding invitation for his english-speaking friends.

Got a new comic up over on DECLAWED! It is relevant to life and junk.
