New Inking Sample – Jungle Comics

Here’s a new sample piece I inked for Ben Dunn at Antarctic Press. He put out a call for inkers last week, and I put my name in the hat. It’s a little more outside my usual style for inking, so it got me out of my comfort zone, which was fine. I approached it …

Star Trek Discovery – Pike!

Season 2 just wrapped up, and I thought it was brilliant. As much as I’m looking forward to new adventures in season 3, I’m going to miss Captain Pike and the crew of the Enterprise. There is a show there that I never knew I wanted until I saw Anson Mount’s portrayal of Pike this …

Moving in 360 – Walking Among the Dead – Graveyard Photography

Walking through a graveyard with a 360 camera on the end of a long stick can be a strange experience. I had a caretaker chase me down in a golf cart. He asked, “How are you doing?” “Fine,” I replied. “What are you doing?” was his next question. It was expected. After explaining to him …

Moving in 360 – 360 Photography in Daytona Beach

I’ve been experimenting with 360 photography lately, and really enjoying the medium. I love the idea of sharing a place or an experience in a unique way, beyond just a flat, two-dimensional image.

Comics and Controversy – Diversity, SJWs and Self-Publishing

I’ve been reading about all the “comicsgate” stuff in the comics business. It seems so stupid that people go so far out of their way to spread animosity and hate toward other comics creatives. One of the things I always liked about the comics industry was that we never seemed in competition with each other …

New Rock Art in ProCreate | Rush | Work in Progress

Rush has been my favorite band since I was in high school. I’ve seen Rush in concert four or five times since 1982. I own every album they’ve ever put out. I own a Rickenbacker bass guitar because Geddy Lee played one. My latest art piece is a tribute to Rush, done from a photo …

Amazing Spider-man #800, plus the past two years – comic book review

I started reading the adventures of Spider-man in issue #176, back in 1978. I’d fallen way behind on my comic reading lately. Over the past few days I finally caught up with Amazing Spider-man through issue 800. What a jumbled mess. A lot of the run was completely incoherent because it crossed over with other …

I went out to lunch with my wife and one of my sons on Father’s Day, and since we were right around the corner from the new music store in town, we decided to walk around and see what’s new. There were a few interesting bass guitars, but nothing that came close to my prized …

And if thy right eye offend thee…

In recent years, I’ve developed cataracts in my eyes. I’m not that old, so I don’t know why it happened, but each eye has developed to the point where I can’t see out of it. I had surgery on my left eye back in 2012 to put in an artificial lens, and that one is …
