The Scarlet Plague

This isn’t exactly new, but I hadn’t put it online before. It’s Jack London’s story of how disaster came to the futuristic world of 2013. I removed all of the action and exactly 97.95% of the words; otherwise it’s basically the same thing.

Day of the Devourer

Here’s a new 8-page comic about compulsive behavior and how on the Internet no one knows you’re a wolf-man. Also, some naked butts.

more loot

New stuff in the Etsy store: 1. the ridiculously labor-intensive paper version of “Spex”; 2. 8.5×11″ inkjet prints of an illustration I’m pretty happy with; 3. a short minicomic collecting two hospital-related stories that are otherwise hard to find in print.

Spex

Here’s a slightly interactive comic that’s not safe for work, unless your job involves a lot of nudity. If you’ve seen X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes, you might have some idea where this is going but it ends up in a different place, thank goodness—actually it ends up one of two ways, depending on how long you linger over the second part of the comic (pay attention when a red progress meter appears). Click the misleading ad below to read the whole thing.

This was originally made for a webcomics workshop taught by Joyce Rice, who gave some very helpful feedback but isn’t responsible for anything terrible about the comic.

For more about the actual object that inspired this, see Wikipedia.

Refresher, again

I took this story from last fall and colorized it, as an exercise in digital stuff that I don’t exactly know how to do yet. This was for an anthology minicomic that I only made a tiny limited edition of; I’ll make some more whenever I get a printer.

Hippocratic Oath

Hippocratic Oath
This medical epic appeared on the blog in sketchbook scribble form a few years ago; here’s the big-budget remake. No animals were harmed. Click to read the whole thing.

Refresher

Just wanted to draw some creatures and buildings and things, but it’s possible that some allegory got in there somehow. Four-page comic.

Assembly Instructions

One reason I don’t do a lot of memoir stuff is that a lot of the things I can remember that are kind of interesting or funny are also drenched in self-pity and/or make me look like a confused, immature ass. That may be realistic but do you really want to be stuck in that point of view for very long? Well, this one is short and at least has a useful message about communication (i.e. it’s a good idea to do some). I also got to draw our friend the Ikea Diagram Person.

May I

The “your doctor” line was repeated many times by one of my high-school science teachers. No one ever thought it was funny.

dressed for success

For some reason, a few years ago I felt compelled to draw and paint a bunch of TV doctor characters re-costumed in various ways. I made a tiny minicomic of this, and now it’s on the website too, in case the world needs to know.
