Beginning today I’m publishing a new alphabet book, How To Say Goodbye, one page per day, until the end of the year. It’ll be available to read over at Raccoonteurs.com, and possibly I’ll be updating it through instagram, if I can figure that out, so follow me there, maybe? I dunno. There’s also the twitter machine, which I’m also not sure I’ve ever figured out entirely. Oh yeah, if the embed thing works, then it’ll update itself here automatically, as well. There you go. Enjoy.
I guess if you’re interested in buying any of the original artwork, let me know, somehow. It’s production art, so there are possibly some blemishes and stuff, but it was all actually done in three colors of ink at 9″x6″ on bristol.
Originals are all 11″x14″ technical pen on bristol. I drew the Frankenstein’s Monster for no real reason, and someone asked if I was doing a theme for the holiday, which is how we find ourselves here.
I was looking for a copy of something for someone, and decided to lay out every book I’ve self-published. The scary thing is that I know there are several books missing— things that sold out or that I no longer have copies of or ready access to. There are probably books I’ve forgotten entirely, as well.
Plus, of course, there are the online-only books, as well as books that were never finished, or that never saw/haven’t yet seen print for whatever reason. Yowza!
I did this drawing for no reason and then recorded my digital mucking about for even less reason. Then, to try and justify it all ex post facto, I made it a shirt.
The original was 14″x11″ technical pen on bristol. Everything after that is obviously Photoshop. I decided to show the steps I took to make this design, for no real reason beyond boredom, I guess…
It’s available for sale in the Never Knows Threadless Shop. Buy something, or else everything I do forever is just a waste of time.
Here are some pages from my new poetry book, The Sneaky Snarky Osters. Please enjoy and feel free to share these. The book is currently available in Olympia at Gallery Boom and at Captain Little, also online at the Never Knows Shop, I assume…
India ink (nib, and technical pen) on 14″x11″ bristol
Well, I say paintings, but they’re actually done with ink…
Your Delusions Ain’t Got Nuthin’ On Mine – 16″x20″ ink on canvas
Who Knew The Eclipse Would Be Blue Ruin – 16″x20″ ink on canvas
With a little bit of luck, these will be available for sale at the new Gallery Boom in Olympia when it opens October 1st. Also my new book, The Sneaky Snarky Osters, will be available for sale, I hope.
The question mark is how I’m going to get the display case and books and everything from my garage to the new downtown location this evening. Cross your fingers for me!
Oh yeah, I might have a new chapbook available somehow tomorrow, as well. Plus, the new Halloween book was supposed to show up today, but the Osters did instead, even though they’re due next week. Weird. So, uh, look out for that.
14″x11″ India ink on bristol
Did this while watching Champion’s League this week. From the same series I did some work on earlier this year. Really nothing but my love of lines, steel nibs, and soccer.
Ink on 14″x11″ bristol.
Did this while watching the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis last night. Not really my usual style- just horsing around while I watched a movie about folk music (ostensibly).
