I’ve updated the comics section with a few short stories I’ve done over the past year for Ink & Drink Comics‘ anthologies. I&D is a group of St. Louis creators that started getting together for beers a while back and eventually decided to collaborate. Thanks to the editing might of Carlos Ruiz, Jason Green, and Bryan Hollerbach, we now have 3 books on the shelves, each based on a different genre: horror, crime, and sci-fi (and currently taking submissions for the Western book due in 2012.)
They’re available through my shop or you can read my submissions here for free.
If you’re going to read one, may I suggest the latest, Kids These Days, from Blasted. And remember, if you buy Blasted here, I donate %100 of the profits to The Methuselah Foundation, a non-profit medical charity dedicated to extending healthy human life. So really, the more copies you buy, the longer you’ll live.
Here’s another one. I reappropriated a copy of “The Rex Nelson Singers’ Expression of Love” album
and tried to make them a little less creepy.
And speaking of…days…Free Comic Book Day is coming up May 1st.

This weekend there’s a concert being put on by my friends at Low Key Comics, and there’s a free comic giveaway that I have a few pages in. The event is in tandem with my friend (and Low Key contributor) Jason’s 30th birthday so I did a story that’s sort of about him. You can read it here.
The Date: May 2nd, 2009
The Place: The Wedge, 442 Bates, St. Louis, MO
The Cover: Just $7

In Febuary, my friends James and Jason invited me to help teach a 4-week comics workshop for kids at Studio STL. It went great! We were lucky to have a lot of talented kids that love comics show up, and we had a lot of fun.
Afterwards, we collected their drawings and stories into a zine, and I wanted to do something cool for the cover, so I recruited my awesome friend, Vadim over at the Print Proliferation Agency, to help me with some screenprinting.
