White River Junction, Hogwarts Adjacent

The last Harry Potter movie is opening tonight! I'm so excited, partly because I haven't been to a midnight movie since High School.

Here in Toon Town, we take our Harry Potter seriously, and there's always a lot of talk about what houses each of us would be sorted into. I'd always imagined myself a Ravenclaw, but everyone else seems to have me pegged for a Slytherin. Guess I do have a bit of an ambitious side.

Here's a few drawings of noted Slytherin Tom Riddle that I did for the Harry Potter Alliance a last year-

Retrofit progress

Betsy Swardlick has sent me a script for our Retrofit collaboration, and I am penciling like a crazy person!


Horses are usually on the list of "things people hate to draw" right after cars and bicycles, but this has been surprisingly fun. Look at them go!

I always intend to scan my pencils before inking, and usually forget. I think Eddie Campbell once said that inking is where all the mistakes come out? But, a lot of saying like that are attributed to Eddie Campbell.


This book will be out in October (we're second in the line-up, after James Kochalka. Intimidating!) The Retrofit Kickstarter has been fully-funded, but you can still contribute and get a subscription!

In other news, there's new comics up on TragicRelief.com every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Brand new! Mostly stories I'd intended for the Island Brat book, but then ran out of room. Check it out!

Summer Colds Aren't Fair


I spent much of this week with a summer cold, watching Dr. Who and consuming an impressive amount of tea, when I should have been drawing.

But, the internet goes on without me:

Inkstuds interview

Robin O'Connell was nice enough to ask me to be on Inkstuds! This is one of my favorite podcasts, and if you don't already listen to it, you probably should.

Come listen to my nervous babblings! http://www.inkstuds.org/?p=3733
