It was, indeed, a great yellow Wildcat, and the Woodman thought it must be chasing something, for its ears were lying close to its head and its mouth was wide open, showing two rows of ugly teeth, while its red eyes glowed like balls of fire.
Opener for Chapter 9! This is an unusual one: they’re off the road and separated from the Lion, and it starts abruptly with the wildcat and the mouse. The red haze in the distance is the poppy field from Chapter 8.
Did you know I have a new book out? It’s the first book of my fantasy adventure comic Vattu and I am pretty pleased with it. Also a few originals lately, and more to come. Holding onto the Oz originals until the book is done, though!
See you soon! Might try to get some spot illustrations done in the next few days.

I put up some originals on etsy! I do this from time to time and I should do it more, because I have a lot of pages of comics that aren’t getting any younger. Not really sure what price to sell them at but I think these are pretty reasonable.

Also a new densely-packed little sketchbook thing on gumroad.

To be sure, the broad river now cut them off from this beautiful land. But the raft was nearly done, and after the Tin Woodman had cut a few more logs and fastened them together with wooden pins, they were ready to start.
The Chapter 8 intro illustration is finished! I’m going slightly out of order because the starting points for 7 and 9 are kind of bland, and I need to figure out something to say with those illustrations in the meantime. I’ve been swamped and chipping away at this one for a while; it’s a relief to finally move forward on this project again.
This is the first full-page we’ve seen of the whole group together!!

back on this, finally.

Haven’t been able to touch this project in a while, but I finally got another spot illustration done! Getting back into the groove with this soon, I have a few things drawn and not colored yet.
If you’re interested, the other stuff I’m working on lately is mostly in the categories of my webcomic Vattu, and my art book publishing company Benign Kingdom.
If you’re in or near NYC, you should come see me at MoCCA Fest this weekend! I’ll be at table C3.
Will talk to you soon!!!!!

A disorienting panel from “Artifacts,” a short comic I made last year for The Sleep of Reason, an anthology of horror comics put together by my buddy Spike. It’s now available in print and as a pdf! For YOU!
I kind of forgot making this story, but I like it a lot and I’m reminded that I should definitely push my work in weird directions more frequently…

Rice Boy covers, old and new. What a relief to have some vague proof that you’re getting better at drawing.

The Rice Boy book has now entered its FOURTH printing, and I re-designed its cover and overall design for the first time since the tiny overpriced print-on-demand version from 2008! I think it’s a good-looking book!

The first few hundred orders of the new edition will get the set of three stickers shown here- 3 by 3 inches, full-color screenprinting on vinyl. Like the best stickers I have ever had made fyi.

Thank you all for reading my comics and still consistently caring about something I started almost eight years ago, it means so much to me.
