I made a comic for my grandmother so I can put it in the reply from the letter she mailed me. Along with her letter she mailed me a Garfield comic strip with a turtle in it, so I just got bored and ripped the dialogue out of the strip and put it in a new situation with Charlie the Cat and Lighting McQueen himself Amadeus the Bunny.

Over the couple of months I’ve been collaborating on an interesting dialogue dependent art series called shutters/dead ends/lens/pens. It features the gorgeous talents of visual artist/photographer William Zuback and writer David Press.

I highly encourage you to check the blog out and read the poetic writings that go along with the images.

Included above are the illustrations I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in.

THROWBACK! Here is some sketchbook ranging from 2010 to 2012. (Mostly from high school.)

I love cleaning up old work.

I dreamed that I’d fallen in love with the most beautiful girl. She had short velvet curls in her hair and minor sun damage on her cheeks. I dreamed that I loved her and then she vanished. 

I dreamed that I needed to escape.

I dreamed that got on a plane with a stand-by ticket, headed to an unknown location.

I dreamed I violently assaulted a man for repetitively and reluctantly grabbing my person.

I dreamed my knuckles bled and a boy with blond hair and a misshapen nose helped me ice and bandage my wounds.

I dreamed I fell in love with him, only to get off the plane and never see him again.

I found this on my computer. Quick slapped it on some old collage work. It reminds me of some people in MKE. It’s only been less then a week but I’m already starting to miss them. #chokinup
It’s good to be around my hometown heroes though they keep my grounded… and things are simpler here. In a week or so they will all be done with their finals and we can hangout but the in-between is really lonely.
