Behold, a wall of Lemolo at last Saturdays’s Portland Garment Factory House Show! PGF was hosting the launch of their first fall collection and showing off other wares in their pop-up shop, including those by esteemed purveyor Elias Grey.
A couple weeks ago we wrapped up the second part of the Lemolo Baggage photoshoot in NE Portland. While the first half including sweeping images of the stark and beautiful Oregon coast, this shoot was to demonstrate city usage of Lemolo, even as a trusty waterproof motorcycle bag.
The images above are just a few of my favorite raw photos. Photographer Dylan Long captured some casual strolls, coffee shop sippin’, and me & my lil’ Honda riding off with Lemolo on my back (I now absolutely loathe my ugly army surplus bag).
Look for the next stage, where Eagle & Wolf brings you the website launch, product line, and Lemolo LookBook.

It seems only fitting that I should follow my WWeek cover illustration with another piece sharing the same kind of Portland bloom. The combination of flora and dead fauna and obsessive line is too hard to resist!
I wanted to create a cousin to my Poppies piece, and looked to one of Jake’s mounted skulls in our house for inspiration. My desert years certainly have a say on this painting, too. These two works will be included in my upcoming show at the Guardino Gallery in February 2012.
The Lemolo Photoshoot gang.
I’m diggin on these simple line illustrations by London-based Laura Callaghan. Looks like I’m not the only one drawing on myself!
Louise of Pandora lists all of the famed women of the silent film era into one place, scandals and all. A great collection of photographs.
Two long-ago decades of circus performers: color photographs from the 1940s & 50s. So good!
Insufferable coffee snobs: yup, this video is entertaining. And in the same vein – this is why I hate Yelp.
Steven Tyler, Larry King, David Bowie, and – BILL GATES?! – appear in this great list of celebrity mug shots.

Man, I love the Ninja Turtles, but this is kinda freaky.
Cartoonist Laura Park has tons of fun comics over at her Flickr.
More at my Tumblr.
And speaking of comics, I need to take a break from drawing them (sigghhhhhh). In February 2012, I’ll be showing at NE Portland’s Guardino Gallery, and I’ve got plenty of work to do. I’ll be posting my progress RIGHT HERE!
A quick ink sketch made during the opening minutes of one of my all-time favorite films, Sergio Leone’s Once Upon a Time in the West.
Note the Lemolo cameo.
Lately my brain has been swirling with more ideas than I’ve had time to draw them. Not to mention, I’ve got another impending art show deadline. The problem is that I can’t stop with these dang comics!
At Wednesday’s Drink & Draw, I decided to execute a quick 3-panel comic based on an off-hand comment Jake had made. Lately, the comics I’ve been making were autobiographical, but for this idea I thought I needed some fictional characters.
And so, Pink & Zephyr were born, in the most spontaneous fashion: taking my first thought, and running with it.
I completed the ink & drawing stage at the Drink & Draw, and digitally colored the comic later. And yep, I’ll be posting these with all my other comics, at ye ol’ Tumblr.
I neglected to bring along a camera last night, but we had a great crowd that included a lot of the creative folk from Roundhouse, the agency where Jake works. Keep a lookout for next month’s event.

This week’s cover story for Portland’s Willamette Week is about the “Other Portland”, described as dangerous, poor, and diverse.
Although I’ve done a few illustrations for Willamette Week in the past, this is my first cover! Many thanks to Soma Honkanen for inviting me to do so, and for her art direction.
I’ve just posted my newest short comic, Names I’ve Been Called While Bartending. Check it out, along with my other comics, here.
The onset of Autumn and cooler weather, golden hues, and the usual Portland wetness means the annual jaunt to nearby Sauvie Island. There, in the quaintly beautiful countryside, people pick pumpkins, flowers, and produce. I start dreaming of Halloween. Then, we come home and I heavily Photoshop and abuse the photos we took and post them on my blog (just look at all those zany digital treatments!). I like this tradition.
So if you don’t know this already, outside of sitting on the couch covered in pizza crumbs and “drawing”, I’ve spent a great deal of time in the last four years tending bar at a neighborhood place in Southeast Portland.
I’ve just finished drawing the first half of a comic that tells the true story of the time I had gotten off work and wandered over to the bar across the street, which was subsequently robbed.
Curious? Check out the first few panels here.
