Insert trite comics pun headline here


I'm finally getting back into writing about comics for the free paper I work for. Not sure why the article is in the summer guide - none of these seem like lite beach reading, but then I don't go to the beach too much so how would I know?

Apologies for the dumb headline, I didn't write it. I guess comics writing is still novel enough (or graphic novel enough, ah ha ha ha...) to call for silly punny headlines. Imagine if every article on the symphony had a headline like "Maestro orchestrates a classic," or every emotionally evocative film ever made was described as a "moving picture" (hyuk!).

Art above is from 676 Apparitions of Killoffer. I've already read one review of this book that had a very different take on it than I have. What do you think?

Pounce on this!

So glad to finally be able to share this illustration, the cover art for the upcoming book “The Deeds of Pounce” by my pal Benjamin Wachs — a tale of goblins adventuring through San Francisco! Pick up your copy via the publisher, Beating Windward Press.

Film history humor

Another swipe at the administration via Photoshop collage. I admit this was inspired at first by Karen Pence's hairdo, but the rest fell into place, as things often do with parody pieces like this. It helps if you know the poster to the 1986 Jonathan Demme movie first, of course.

Art history humor...

I channeled my inner John Heartfield, and hijacked Domenico Ghirlandaio's famous painting, to come up with this bit of obscure political commentary...

Speaking of art history, here's an illustration I did for the in-house volunteer docent scheduling web page at the Detroit Institute of Arts. When in Detroit, be sure to visit the Detroit Industry murals by Diego Rivera. If you're really lucky, I'll be there to tell you all about them!
