When I was a kid I had no idea what a 'Monster Kid' was. I just knew that I liked scary stuff, and monsters, and Halloween. I knew that I loved to tell stories and pretend my play time was part of a movie. I was a monster kid without knowing it. Heck, one of… Continue reading Books For The Monster Kids
You would think it’d be tiresome by now, wouldn’t you, the hand-wringing and dire pronouncements about how superhero movies are KILLING CINEMA! AND CULTURE! AND THE WORLD!

It was hot and windy… Continue reading FLASHBACK – Tattered Tents & Whispered Wishes
I don't draw nearly enough these days. I used to love it as a kid but as I have gotten older I obsess about the talent I DON'T have and don't focus on the talent, or skill, I do have. Sure, I am not as good as lots of people at a lot of things… Continue reading Return of the Doodlebug
I have always had a love for classic cars. I imagine it comes from my father, who has always loved them as well. Classic cars and car culture are quintessential parts of Americana and of what we imagine as this idealized America. They are part of our identity. While I am glad that we are… Continue reading The Road Behind
As I am always up to something or other there's a new project I have been working on that I'll be unveiling in October. Something a little different.
