At last: it's here. Pick up your copy and then remember to pour one out for the signers of the Declaration of Independence, and the monumental act of courage that they showed on this day.

What a thoroughly rewarding #MayThe4thBeWithYou at Free Comic Book Day at Jetpack Comics in Rochester, New Hampshire! Met some amazing new artists, reconnected with some beloved old colleagues, was dazzled by all the creative cosplay, and just generally soaked up the wonderful nerdy fan atmosphere. Thank you Ralph and your whole awesome crew for a delightful event --you guys put a lot into this event and it showed. (And having a full day of gorgeous spring weather certainly helped!)
I dearly hope you were all able to drop by your local comic book store and show them some love.

Audiophiles! Did you know today is #recordstoreday2019? Of course you did. So hie thee over to Village Vinyl & Hi-Fi at their brand new Brookline, Mass. location and check them out!
(And if I may humbly request, take a moment while you're there to look over their accumulated paintings of Frank Zappa, Fela Kuti, and the duo of Eric B. & Rakim.)

Happy Birthday Arlington, Massachusetts! (Well, technically, Happy Birthday Menotomy, but you get the idea...)

Been another difficult and challenging year, but... Percussa Resurgo my dears. Many comic con appearances planned and some long-delayed projects coming to fruition in 2019.
Much happiness and blessings upon all your houses this coming year.

RIP sir. It isn't possible to thank you enough.

I love that I live in an era where my beloved Red Sox win national championships on a regular basis. 'Twas NOT the tradition I grew up with! :) A generation has grown up with no memory of the Sox as one of the "losing-est" punchline teams. Well done Boston! And well played, L.A.!

Cap wants you to getchyer asses to the polls and VOTE this November. He didn't punch Nazis in the 1940's just so you could stay home, dammit.
(Not bad for 10 minutes' worth of sketching...)

While I myself shall not, alas, be able to participate in the annual awesomeness that is Granite State Comic Con this coming weekend, I still eagerly urge the rest of you to getchyerselves up to Manchester and bask in the amazing show of creativity. As always, neglect not Artists' Alley! It is there that the new universes are being birthed, and from where the eventual new fandoms will emerge. Have a wonderful time my dears!

Glamorous comic book illustrator life. Every panel has to convey movement, even if just implied. Some days you draw epic fight scenes or futuristic cityscapes.
Some days you draw a men's room.

"Is anybody there? Does anybody care? Does anybody see what I see?"
Taylor Hooper as John Adams, quietly voicing the desperate questions that we as Americans must continue to revisit and re-examine, if we believe this Noble Experiment still holds any hope.
As a high school student this musical very much kindled my passion for this era in American history and had a direct influence on my graphic novel The Monitor's Guild. Having now been a part of this production myself, I very much hope that very same interest might have been awakened in another impressionable young mind.
A blessed Independence Day commitment to us all, my dears.
