Colorful Portraits only $50 a head!
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!

Hey everyone!
I know i’ve been terrible about updating lately, but the first volume of Batcave Beach will be done by friday, and then I can get back on track with my diary comics.

In the meantime, Aaron and I both did an interview with the online art magazine It’s full of interesting favorites and facts about yours truly. If you’re interested, you can view or download the pdf here. Enjoy!

Romancing a Lumberjack.

I finished the embroidery for the cover of “Romancing a Lumberjack”, a cd coming soon from The Jellyfish Bandits!


Hey everyone! So I know i’m lagging further and further behind in my dailies, but I just wanted to tell everyone: I’m still working on them…slowly but surely. You may think i’m a slacker, but I’m really not! Here’s why…First of all, I got a job! It’s only a temporary thing at my Dad’s company, but I am SO grateful for it. For those of you who don’t already know my situation, I have been unemployed since I came back from Europe LAST JANUARY. So having a paycheck feels pretty amazing. You’ll hear more about my job later (through my comics) but I also wanted to update everyone on the projects i’m working on now.

1. Batcave Beach.
2. Embroidering the cover of the soon-to-be-released CD of my band The Jellyfish Bandits.
3. Aaron and I are creating a stop-motion web series called “Buffalo Romantico”, which i’ll be doing the art for.
4. (Hopefully) Two new minicomics! One will be short autobiographical stories, One will be about the roadtrip Aaron and I went on back in October 2009. I’m hoping to debut them at Stumptown Comics Fest (Keaton, Aaron and I are sharing a table. If you live in the Portland vicinity, I hope you’ll stop by!).

I am SO excited about all these projects, and I can’t wait for you all to see them! Thanks for being patient with the dailies, because I will be posting more soon too! Cheers!

This comic (and others) are featured on the new website: It’s a neat financial website that focuses on people sharing stories about their experiences with money. You should check it out!
