On the Subject of Comics
I’ve been drawing comics since I could hold a pencil. I maintain a few web comics, including impossiblydelicatethreadsofsleep.com. I like to do short single panels and small comics on my blog, too.

What Happens When You Die
This is a story I’ve been telling, in parts, over the years. I’m excited to present a small portion of it in a gallery, in large scale comic form.

Newsprint Comic – Part 1
I picked up some newsprint this week, with the intention of drawing some color comics. In the early days, comics appeared in newspapers and were printed on newsprint (duh). Ink tended to run and blot, so artists had to simplify their drawings by eliminating cross hatching and tight line work. There is something very appealing about the simplicity of that approach.
I also miss the comic books that were printed on newsprint – they smelled good, and the limitations imposed by the printing medium made them appealing. Sure, they were fragile, and today’s comics off much brighter colors and many more options. That’s fine – I’m just a bit nostalgic for the 35¢ price tag and artwork.
This was an exercise in quick execution. It’s likely a storyboard for moving images.
