VOTE for Heeby Jeeby!

Heeby Jeeby Comix, the all-ages comic book that I've been self-publishing with Chris Houghton, David DeGrand, and Dan Moynihan for the past couple years, was recently nominated for a 2011 New England Art Award in the ‘BOOK’ category! It was exciting and unexpected news for all of us. At this stage public voting is what determines the winner, so if you have a moment we would hugely appreciate your vote.

---> Vote Here!

All you have to do is enter your name and email to vote (there is no registration required). Heeby Jeeby Comix #3 is right at the top of the page in the ‘BOOK’ category.

You can learn more about the awards at the New England Art Awards website.

Voting ends this Friday (just a couple more days!), so this is the final push.

In other news, Heeby Jeeby Comix #4 is already in the works. We're looking at a Spring release and a festival debut at TCAF. You can still purchase copies of issues 1 through 3 directly through me.

Thank you!

Freehand marker drawings

I've been doing more freehand drawing lately—with markers, in particular. The guy above I drew with a regular old purple crayola marker. It's a fantastic tool to draw with—glides across the page smoothly and enough control to allow for a tapered line.

This weirdo I drew with a similar style black marker that I picked up years ago in college. Sturdier tip—great control. When you put ink to paper without a definite plan, you improvise from your bag of drawing habits with the hope of inventing something new. Put away your pencil, your eraser, your UNDO. Let what happens, happen. It's great for filling up a page of quick doodles, too.
