Comic // Hose ‘Er Down


I just finished a full new strip for Adult Babysitting: Volume II, featuring one of my favorite log book entries by my coworker.  In it, a hapless drunkie gets hosed down with water from the soda gun after she pinwheeled her way behind the bar (always a big Nuh-Uh).  Poor thing.

I inked this two page spread on my self-made template I created just for Adult Babysitting, then scanned it into Photoshop for some clean up and added tones.  Wanna see the full comic?  Check it out over on www.adultbabysittingcomic.com!

And have a wonderful holiday, y’all.  May your feast be plentiful and your house full of family or friends.

Adult Babysitting Vol. II // Progress


Still plugging away on my comic, Adult Babysitting.  Since deliberately taking more time with this issue, I’ve been really enjoying exploring new layouts in this wonderful art form we call COMICS.  And of course, I’m still laughing the whole time.

Adult Babysitting: Vol I was recently reviewed in the Portland Mercury, much to my surprise.  See the article here.

And if you STILL haven’t picked up your own copy of Volume I, visit most any Portland comic shop or place an order before I run out!

ABV2 // Nightmares (Progress)

Here’s another strip for Adult Babysitting: Volume II about the requisite nightmares that come along with the job.  It gets worse.  So, soooo much worse.

I’d been away from the drawing table much more than I wanted to last week, so I’m looking forward to putting in a good 80 million hours in the studio to make up for it.

Another true account about the harrowing lives of bartenders and customer service!  How do we sleep at night?  Someone should do a “clinical study”.

Adult Babysitting: Volume II is slowly but surely coming along.  Look for more glimpses of this issue soon.

So It Begins

With all the craziness of the last few weeks, it’s been awhile since I’ve been at my usual Studio Hermit/Constant Drawing self.  It felt nice to return from Sasquatch and push a pencil and brush for awhile.  When I lapse, I tend to feel a little “off” (i.e. – “CRAZY”).

After a period sans arts-making, I need to do a few warm-up exercises.  Over the last week I’ve done plenty, including a few Portland People drawings.  The last one I worked on was a quick doodle of a young (real life) fellow sporting a fashionable…”butt flap” (you know, the kind punk rock kids usually wear?).

Lately, I’ve been doing more than just a little Photoshop clean-up, going so far as to enhance (GASP) the original drawings.  OMG.  What is happening to me.

And here’s the little dude after a bit of wizardy:

But nowwww, the fun stuff begins!  After figuring out a general layout and a bit of thumbnailing, I’ve started work on Adult Babysitting: Volume II! YAAAAAAAY!

Here is the first working page for the second volume:


Oh man, this is going to be fun.

P.S. – What’s Adult Babysitting?  Geez, go pick up Volume I already.
