It’s shaping up to be an exciting year for Chim Chum and the Portly Samurai! Beginning in January, they’re going to have their own comic book series from American Mythology. It would mean the world to me if you would pre-order from your local comic shop or, if that isn’t an option, buy a comic here. (You’ll need to order before November 18th to insure you get the great pre-order discount.) I’ll also be happy to ship you a signed copy of Chim Chum #1 if you’d like to order directly from me. If you’re interested, contact me using the form on this site and I’ll send you the info.
In addition, I’m rebooting the comic strip with updated art formatted for newspapers – which is relevant because it WILL be appearing in papers starting November 1st. It’s a start for what I hope will be a continuing trend.
Thank you so much for your continued support and viewership. We find ourselves in stressful and difficult times, and I hope my work brings you a bit of lightness and joy.
I’m excited to report that I’ve been very busy lately. I just finished up some really fun pages for Pink Panther featuring some of his very under-utilized supporting cast. Now I’m off and running on new stuff for the Free Comic Book Day issue of Underdog, coming this May. Here’s a little preview of some of the art I’ve finished so far.
Twenty plus years into my career, I still get starry-eyed when I get to write and draw new stories for characters I grew up with. There’s more in the pipeline, too… But I can’t announce them just yet.
I really should have titled this “Fan Art: Elliot”, but somehow this seemed like an easier way to communicate the idea. It’s a Brazzle Dazzle Day!
Here’s a sketch of my favorite Wuzzle, Bumblelion. I just so happen to also be friends with the man who provided his voice, Brian Cummings. They got originality!
I’ve been taking some time lately to sketch some of my favorite Disney characters that I don’t typically get to draw at work. Here’s Kit Cloudkicker from TaleSpin. His airfoil is arguably the coolest thing about the show.
