You just email me a photo of yourself (or someone else) you’d like painted, a la melinda, and you’ll have an art piece you can keep forever! It could make a great gift or a facebook, blog or tumblr profile pic that really stands out! (USA Shipping Included)

If you've enjoyed reading my comics and have a little extra money to throw my way, I'd greatly appreciate it. I am a young, unemployed artist living in the city trying to scrape up rent money every month (no guilt trips here...), so any money you could donate would be great. If you have 10$ or more to send my way, I'll make it worth your while! Include your shipping address and I'll send you a small drawing or piece of art...each one will be unique. Thanks everyone!

Mini Skateboard Comic.

Hey Folks! I boothed at the Portland Zine Symposium two weeks ago, and I had such a blast. I got to sit next to all of the great Portland cartoonists (I shared a table with Virginia from Milkyboots which was really fun. She does a diary comic too…you should check it out!).

I got to paint in Greg Means sketchbook. He runs Tugboat Press, a publishing company that puts out “Papercutters”, an awesome comic that’s published several times a year that collects stories from some of the greatest artists out there. He carries around sketchbooks to the expos he presents and has artists draw in them…I painted in his “girls on skateboards” sketchbooks this time. It’s a little tidbit for you guys to enjoy since I haven’t posted in FOREVER!!!!

But i’ve got some good news for you guys…I’m practically unemployed again (I’m only working 5 hours a week at my day job), which means I’ll be able to do many more daily comics in the near future. So keep checking back and I PROMISE you won’t be disappointed. Have a wonderful weekend!
