Crime Scene Cupcake

Cinnamon Buns

I had an elbow injury last fall and working on the computer aggravated it, so I took a break and began working in traditional media. It's amazing how you get accustomed to making art on a computer. Working on paper again was like learning to ride a bike all over again, but the best thing about it is going to the art supply stores again and buying stuff.

Bad Dogs

Forgive me, for I have been a negligent blogger. And I do not intend to get much better.

I've started a new series of paintings though. I call them "Bad Dog Confessions".

Astral Airlines

I'm having a lot of fun working on a comic with my partner at the moment called Astral Airlines. Neither of us have any experience in this area so we're learning as we go, and where it's heading is a mystery. My partner does the words and I doodle the drawings. Here's a little description:
What if you had control over your dreams? What if your dreams had control over you? When Herb and Ada meet their Keepers, two gentle monsters of the soul named Star Belly and Wee Ted, they begin a journey aboard an Astral Plane populated by turnips, giant rabbits, disembodied hands and the Immortal Flour God. Here, with the guidance of their Keepers and the help of the Astral Airlines staff, they’ll navigate their dreams, conquer their nightmares and learn that there are no-cost flights to any destination you can imagine.
And the comic lives here.

I've been doing a lot of pattern work recently, which has been great. Here's a new one called "Octopus Garden" :

Also, I recently reprinted some shirts and they're now available:

If you'd like to order, currently the easiest way is to email me at mike (at) I'll set up the shop again very soon! They are $20 and are printed on American Apparel shirts, so they are like Springsteen and are born in the USA.

"Humiliation Has No Return" by theangryhedonist

new work, although im not too happy about its angsty statement! she is chopping off her fingers in the picture with tears flowing from her face. oh no, im drowning in a cesspool of cliches, help!


doodle characters


Breaking the black outline cycle on this. I really enjoy working with textures, but hate having such huge files in PS. Miss the small little one in AI. Picking up more mainstream editorial stuff and liking it. 

My new comics...

Finally I drew a comic strip...
and they published it!

I was too late for purple...
This one is actually an ordinary assignment for an oil company. I rarely make illustrations that takes me days to make anymore, so I kind of felt I had to post it just for that reason. Painter XI pastels.

Charley Harper is definitely one of my favorite illustrators, so I was excited to find these images of his studio space this morning here. Look how cluttered his workspace is!
