This little logo was done for an aquaintance of mine named Ron Lischeid who plans to use it for an independent tire repair shop he is opening up. As you can see, we went for a cartoony, Flinstones-style stone-age theme. With his beard and buzz-cut, Ron is a really fun guy to caricature. For this one I used a brush instead of a pen, which is a technique I really need to use more often because the line quality is just so much nicer.

This is a fun little thing I did a while back as a favor for a former co-worker. She wanted me to draw her a couple little figures to have on display during a "thank-you" party she was throwing for two friends of hers who had made her wedding cake. The idea was to portray her two friends as patron saints of baking on a pair of stained-glass windows. I must say, I think it ended up looking pretty darn cute.
Here is a 2-page story I did for Nicholas Straight's "Imaginary Friends" comic anthology, which premiered at the Imaginary Friends art show earlier this month at Infinitea Teahouse in uptown Minneapolis. This comic featured a number of great tales from a bunch of local artists, based around the general theme of "Imaginary Friends". Nick's plan was to distribute any unsold copies to local comic shops, and I encourage you to get out there and try to pick up the wonderful print edition if it's still available. But in case you can't track one down, here is my story:

Here's an experimental Camp Roadkill comic I did a few years back. I was trying to work in a large "sunday" style format, and also trying out a more spontaneous drawing style. It's hard to strike the right balance between a loose style and just having it look sloppy... not sure if I acheived that here, but I still think it's a pretty funny little story.

Camp Roadkill is a secret enclave in the north woods of the upper midwest. It is a refuge where critters of all kinds can live together in harmony, away from the human world. Naturally, wacky hijinks will ensue. More to come soon. Enjoy!
