The Sneaky Snarky Osters

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…

Some Bathos Paintings

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.

Joga Bonito


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.

Inside Llewyn Davis


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).

I haven’t caught things up here in awhile, I’ll try to do that really quickly…

So, a couple of weeks ago I started a new web project called True Stuffs on Instagram, for no apparent reason or obvious end goal. Today I gave it its own website over at My only vague goal is to somewhere somehow cover an entire wall with these things. Similar to All Good Excuses, this began as a one-off joke that got out of hand.

I’ve got two new books at the printer right now. One is last year’s Raccoonteur Halloween book. The other is a collection of 26 poems about various creatures, called The Sneaky Snarky Osters.


Provided both books make it back from the printer in reasonable time, I’ll have them available for sale and whatever in early October. If you’re local to the Olympia area, and interested in doing a reading, I can do that. Both books are all-ages appropriate, I think, though I may not be a great judge. At any rate, I don’t remember drawing any penises or rhyming any cusses.

I’ve also got a new Raccoonteurs book in production, called How To Say Goodbye, that I’ll be publishing somewhere at some point. If you are a place that wants to publish a book a page at a time for 26 days, do let me know.

There you go.

Bathos_TL_color1_smaller Bathos_TL_color2_smaller

These two pieces are 11″x17″ India and drawing ink on bristol. The scanner does some weird stuff to the color, but I don’t feel like fighting it.

I really want someone to commission one of these in, like, the 4ft by 6ft range. It would take forever, but I think it would look amazing. I’d do it just for myself and to have, but I don’t have anywhere to hang or even to store such a piece. I need a gallery or a patron to step up and give up a wall for the team.

It’s Not You, It’s Modern Living

modern living

I said this to someone the other day, and then immediately visualized it as a completed image. So I did that, and having done that, made it a shirt over at my Threadless shop. I wasn’t really sure why I had chosen to do a dinosaur (instead of a cowboy? or a mammoth?), until I saw my last post, which was also dinosaur related, based on something someone else said. There you go. I’ve also got a drawing of a pterodactyl sitting on my desk, but I did that a couple of months ago while watching the Adèle Blanc-Sec movie. I’ll do something with it at some point, unless I forget.

My Favorite Is All The Dinosaurs

all the dinosaurs

A recent commission I did for a four year old. Went ahead and made it a shirt for sale over at my Threadless shop. The original was India ink (technical pen) on 14″x11″ bristol, same as basically everything I do.
