An Immigrant A Day

UPDATE: Today I chose to delete this Instragram account and cease the project. It was a lot of work and the follower count seemed to stall early on at 65. But I did get 28 immigrants drawn and it lasted exactly a month, so that I feel pretty good about. I will continue to support immigration and […]

“Gramps: Beneath the Surface” Now on Vimeo

“In 2006, filmmakers Max Koch and The Counselor went deep into the California desert to spend a weekend with Max’s step-grandfather, Dick Surface. Armed only with a $300 Sony Handi-cam, a lot of beer, and the desire to capture a bit of Dick’s desert life-style, they ended up delving deeper into Dick’s psyche than expected. […]

I Got Drawn!

On August 8th, this past weekend, I turned 45 years old. My hilarious cousin Christine drove into town from Las Vegas and we partied with sparkling wine and horror movies. Man, holy shit, turning 45 was not as breezy as I hoped it would be. In fact, it was downright SOBERING! And that’s not a […]

Getting Shit Done

Today, I am GETTING SHIT DONE. Shit, I’ve been pretty much gettin’ shit done all week. But today is exceptionally productive. The fridge is stocked for the Easter holiday weekend. The pugs are at the groomer getting their booty glands expelled before they get thoroughly bathed. And the cleaning crew is zeal-fully kicking ass outside my office door, as […]

As a Cartoonist…

I have to say, the recent and terrible events in France punched me hard, right in the gut. Mainly because 5 of the 12 victims in the vicious attack against Charlie Hedbo were CARTOONISTS. Soak it in: Cartoonists are getting killed in the first month of 2015. And why? Because of the offense taken by their satirical […]
