Here is a piece I did for the Philadelphia Cartoonist Society's recent Show at Amble gallery in the Northern Liberties in Philly. PeeWee Martini is a funny looking dog in fishtown, who's owner was kind enough to let us pay tribute to. I wanted this to have a dick tracy/Great Piggy bank robbery feel, and threw Ren, Astro, Scooby Doo, Muttley, Odie, Droopy, Huckleberry Hound, Mr.Peabody, Snoopy, Goofy,Santa's Little Helper, and Brain from Inspector Gadget as fellow gangster type dogs. Thanks to the Society for having me contribute, and for Amble for the space.

Here is the front/back cover for a book that will hopefully be given out at the baltimore comic-con (if the printer doesnt screw it up). The japanese Text is a font, i dont know if it says what i want it to say, but it looks cool so whatever. Hopefully it says monster.Hahaha
Here is my layout for the Kappa. These guys can be nasty, what wth their sucking out your organs through the anus and all. They have water in their heads, and if it all spills out they get weakened, so practice bowing in case you meet one!
Here is the first page of a new comic i am working on. Trying to ink more with a brush, alot of this page was doe with a bamboo brush. This mysterious craft is headed for earth! What ill omens does it bring? Whom does it carry inside? Color and text soon to come.

Tanuki are racoon-dogs featured in japanese folklore as mischieveious little creatures, with enlarged testicles. (this is true or REAL Tanuki as well, though maybe not as exaggerated in the folk tales, or in my drawings).
I wanted to capture their funloving.troublemaking nature here. Hope I succeeded!
