Colorful History: Eisenhower

To celebrate Memorial Day, Pop Culture Classroom (the nonprofit that organizes Denver Comic Con), hired me to write, color, and letter a four-page comics story about President Dwight Eisenhower. The pencils are by Billy Tucci, who is best known for Shi, the nineties-era "bad girl" comic, and Sgt. Rock: The Lost Battalion for DC Comics. This is the first time I've ever written a comic book for someone other than myself, so it was most interesting to see how my script was interpreted. To download a PDF of this story, the original script and layouts, or a teacher's guide, please visit:

The Bar Car Mural

Here on top is my original drawing that the owner of The Bar Car commissioned me to draw as the basis for a new mural on the side of the building...and beneath it the muralist's interpretation of it.

Secret Title Action Movie Poster

This is a pre-production poster for a movie whose title I cannot yet reveal, due to the project not being formally announce. Acrylics, 30" x 22"

Taskmaster, Batman versus Evil Captain Kirk

A couple of commissions I did in 2016. This year marks the 50th anniversary of both Star Trek and the Batman TV show, and the client wanted separate commissions of Star Trek and Batman, so I hit upon the idea of illustrating a TV Guide from a parallel universe where each of those shows went beyond three seasons and had a crossover in the fourth.

The other commission is Taskmaster, a Marvel villain.

13th Night

This past summer I co-wrote (with Stephen Graham Jones), penciled, inked, colored, and lettered 13th Night, a comic about Shakespeare's "First Folio", the first complete collection of The Bard's plays ever printed. Without the First Folio about half of his plays would be unknown to us, plays such as Macbeth, Twelfth Night, and The Tempest. This comic was created for the University of Colorado at Boulder's exhibition of the touring First Folio making its way across all fifty states. As it was a non-profit venture (for the University, anyway), and the book is not for sale, I am posting the book in its entirety. Enjoy.
