Worm Attack!

Here's the page I had published in the most recent (and final?) issue of Puck Magazine from Italy. Couldn't be prouder to have had my work included among such a great lineup on cartoonists from all around the world, and to have gotten to contribute to a book with such a wild concept: Over 100 artists drawing their individual vision of the apocalypse. Copies should still be available in both Italian and English; check the Puck Magazine Facebook page for info. Stay tuned for MORE FRANTIC FUMETTI ACTION!

Bar Mitzvah Blast

I broke new ground recently with my first ever Bar Mitzvah poster designs. The first one (above) was all done by me and the second was penciled by my old pal Evan Quiring with inking and coloring by yers truly.With the rock poster scene being so overexposed at this late date, perhaps rocking Bar Mitzvah posters will be the wave of the future. Or perhaps not. Anyhow, don't be a schmoe, stay tuned for MORE MESHUGGAH ACTION!

I Was Working In The Lab, Late One Night...

Just finished up this nutty cover art for an upcoming LP comp of rare monster-themed novelty rockers from the '50s and '60s. I went a little crazy on this project because I am a huge fan of this musical genre and have collected most of the similar comps that have come out in the past 25 years or so. This one will be out by Halloween and it's gonna be a limited edition of 500 copies so don't pass it by if you happen to see a copy.

How Sweet It Is

Sweet Daddy Siki was a well known pro rassler who put out 3 LPs worth of C&W music back in the '70s. I did this caricature of him for a forthcoming zine that is gonna cover the crossover between rassling and other parts of pop culture (rasslers who sing and act, bands and movies influenced by rassling, that kinda thing). That's a brilliant idea for a zine and I can't wait to see it. Stay tuned for MORE DO THE HAMMERLOCK YOU TURKEYNECK ACTION!
