MICE Art Show Comic

I had a great time exhibiting at MICE (Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo) in 2019. It was my fourth time there, but it was the first time I hung a piece of original comic art at the MICE Art Show. I made this comic for the occasion, and was pretty happy with how it came out. […]

Freeloader Album Cover Art

This was a really fun project I did back in the summer of 2019, cover art design and production for Freeloader’s debut CD. We decided to go for a 1970’s K-tel look. Which was harder than you’d think. The colors, the line weight, everything had to conform to a very particular look.

Cover Art for Small Blue Yonder: The Last One

I released The Last One, my sixth Small Blue Yonder collection, in April 2019. Is it really the last Small Blue Yonder book? Probably not. Or… maybe? We’ll see. Anyway, I penciled it (you can see how slapdash my pencils sometimes are, below) and inked it. Then I scanned it in and colored it in […]

Nat Freedberg Album Art

It was fun creating album art for Nat Freedberg’s first solo album Better Late Than Never, which came out on the Rum Bar label late in 2018. We devised a story of sorts, where the front cover shows Nat running after a departing bus. Who’s on the bus? His guitar, as shown on the back […]

K7s Album Cover Art

I got to design and illustrate an album cover for K7s, a new band from Spain! This is for their debut album, now out via Rum Bar Records. The band wanted a cartoon. They originally asked for a pizza/beer scenario. I suggested that we try for something a bit more unusual and submitted two sketches. […]

Brick Animated GIF

I admire David Craig, comic artist extraordinaire. One of Dave’s Brick comics inspired me to make this GIF.

Sketch Cards

It’s fun making those quickie sketch cards — pen and ink with black and white wash — I sell them when I table at comic festivals; good cheap impulse buy

Book Cover Design

I designed this book cover for a friend. Pretty straightforward but I like how it came out.

Dream Dollhouse Mouse Treehouse

This is really where it all began for me, as far as computer art/animation goes. I was thrilled to have the opportunity, in the mid 90’s, to create interactive scenes for a CD-ROM: Fisher-Price Dream Dollhouse. The Dollhouse had a secret “mouse world.” Each room in the Dollhouse provided access to a different scene featuring […]

Sand Trapped! Educational CD-ROM

I won’t post too many examples of projects from ages ago but this was so much fun to work on. I was an art director on this project, a late 90’s CD-ROM for 3rd graders, I got to work with a very talented team of artists. I contributed to the “plot,” activity/scene design, character design, […]
