Father Robot tries self awareness.

Issue #3 is just about ready for mass consumption.  In this chapter, FR comes face-to-face with the reality of his identity, and both he and Reggie have to make sense of the robot’s truth of existence.  What will Clarabelle do?  Can they all escape becoming casualties of war?!


I collaborated with the mega-talented Cody Hagman on this one.  I did the line work and Cody brought life to the drawing with awesome, digital colors.

Party in Portland

Are you going to be in Portland, Oregon in a few weeks?  If so, you should come by my table at Rose City Comic Con and pick up the new issue of Father Robot the weekend of September 20th and 21st.  I’ve got some new artwork for sale (original and prints), t-shirts, buttons, and, of course, lots of cool comics!

Issue #3: Comin’ at ya!

Sorry it’s been a while, but exciting new work is being created.  If you’re planning on going to Rose City Comicon, you can be one of the first to pick up the printed Father Robot #2!

In the meantime, here’s a sneak peak of the action from issue #3.


The reviews are in.

My current series, Father Robot, is starting to get some readership and reviews.  Some are a little more critical than my fragile ego can handle happily (sniff), but almost all are fair and accurate.  Here’s one where you can actually hear yours-truly talk about the book, at Panda Manga.



Clawing your way to the top.

Work continues on the new issues of Father Robot.  Check out this sneak-peak from Issue #3.  Is this the end for our hero?


Available for your viewing pleaseure.

It’s been hard waiting for this day, but it’s nice to finally see my comic available for purchase.  Thanks to Kristopher White, the folks at Comixology, 215 Ink, and especially our supportive fans for making this possible.

Maybe when robots fly…

Yeah, I know that background is fairly lacking, but I set out on this one just to play around with some new markers, mostly.  FR doesn’t usually sport no jetpack, but what the hell, this pose was a lot of fun.

Years ago I remember reading one of Mignola’s Hellboy stories where all the investigating agents dropped to the scenes of paranormal activity on jetpacks.  Mignola’s fantastic and graphic way of visualizing things has stuck with me, and I always strive to try and bring a little of the magic that I see in his work to my own.  While my success at that is debatable, I felt inspired by the jet wash he drew in that story.  I swear it streamed out from below and behind those characters’ jetpacks, even when they were landing. However, a fellow artist-friend of mine pointed out that the jet wash/exhaust would actually be hitting the ground while landing and blowing up all kinds of dust.  I may go look up Mignola’s pages and try and duplicate more of what I remember from them later, but for now here’s a quick work-up of our hero in (uncommon, for him) action.


The robot was done by hand, vectorized, and then colored by hand with Copic markers.  The jet wash and dust (and shitty backdrop) were done digitally in good ol’ Photoshop.


We’ll be back after these messages…

Trying to come up with an iconic logo for the Father Robot book(s).  After pulling this head of our hero from one of my recent pages, I decided to try it out as emblem-esque image…

So, what do you think?


Fun with robots

There’s a definite art to the proper composition on a comic book panel.  I’ve experimented a lot with this one.  It’s supposed to show an evil robot getting what’s coming to him.  Here’s one of my earlier “framing” attempts of the panel.  In the end, I set up the whole thing significantly differently.  If you want to know how, you’ll have to check out issue #3…


Oh, wow…

Get ready for another one.  Convention season continues with BigWOW!

If you’re around, come by and see and the new stuff on my table.
