Show poster I did for Cochise Soulstar's upcoming show at The House Cafe on October 9th. (Disregard the Friday, it will be fixed)

Got a couple in-store appearances lining up next week so stay posted for more details, which I will have shortly. I'll also be announcing the details of the Issue #0 re-release that's coming in November. This weekend is 24 Hour Comic Project which is always a blast. I urge you to find a participating shop and go nuts! I'll be participating at the Comic Vault here in Chicago. You're more than welcome to attend. There will be pizza, energy drinks and insanity.

UPDATE: To promote the launch of The Great Sandwich Detective at G-Mart Comics, I will be appearing there next Friday, October 8th from 3-5 PM. I will be signing copies of books and doing sketches and whathaveyou. So come on out. Brian Walsby of the band Double Negative will also be appearing, signing copies of his books. G-Mart is located at 2641 N Kedzie Ave. in Chicago (Logan Square).

Also, the full run of The Great Sandwich Detective is now available for online order through!

Now back to wrapping up Issue #4!

Zombie Puppet!

I stumbled upon this the other day. This was a little doodle I did for Little Brass Bird while hanging out in the Artists Alley at Chicago Comic-Con. They were giving everyone these cool blank puppet templates to draw on. So I did a zombie.

You should go check their website out. Tons of really cool stuff.

Halloween Special Cover Preview

Hot off the Photoshops, the front cover of the Great Sandwich Detective #4, the Halloween Special!

This is going to be a really awesome issue. I did something different for this one. Instead of it being one long story, I split the issue into three shorts. I invited my friends Dave Scheidt and Dave Gruba to write two of the stories so this is the first time you'll see The GSD done by other writers, which is really awesome. Dave S.'s story is called "Witching Hour" and Dave G.'s is called "Dr. Pickle & Mr. Brine". In between those will be a one page strip I wrote called "Trick 'R Stuff". In the back we'll see amazing pinups by Frank Fosco and George Rizok as well as a special two-page guest backup story written and drawn by Issue #3 pinup artist Joe Tinaglia. Also included with the issue will be a Great Sandwich Detective jack o' lantern pattern. The Great Sandwich Detective #4 will be in stores October 27th.

Movie Business

I got hired to do some fake comic covers for a movie that's filming at Brainstorm soon. I had to switch my style up a bit so it looked like 3 different books from 3 different artists. Here are two of them (the third book is just going to be the cover of The Great Sandwich Detective #3).

This is actually an old Fourth Of July poster I did. I just changed the text and made it even more metal. F**k Yeah Comics sounds like an awesome publisher.

With this one I tried to make a stereotypical indie hipster comic. The photo reference is none other than Aaron Pittman. And of course you can't forget the Helvetica.


Hard at work on Issue #4. It's turning out really awesome. Can't wait to share it with you all!

The GSD #3 Out Tomorrow! My 100th Blogging!

Woohoo! Celebration! My 100th blogging on the blog! Yeah buddy.


Tomorrow is the release of The Great Sandwich Detective #3. I'm very proud of this issue. I worked really really hard on it and I hope you all enjoy it. Tomorrow you'll be able to pick up copies at Brainstorm Comics, Challengers Comics and The Comic Vault. (The other stores will have it in a couple weeks. Sorry!).

And tomorrow the Comic Vault will be hosting a release event for The GSD. I'll be there from 12-7 PM, sketching and signing and hanging out. We'll be having a sandwich seminar where you can make your own sandwich and enjoy it with the Comic Vault staff. I'll also have some random giveaways including shirts and prints. And every copy of GSD #3 purchased at The Comic Vault will come with a limited edition poster. Bam!

So I hope to see you all there tomorrow. I know the other comics don't come out til Thursday but let's celebrate sandwiches and detectives together tomorrow! Yeah!
