On Exhibit – Middletown Arts Center

A show of my work is currently on display in the front gallery of the Middletown Arts Center in Middletown, Ohio.

Our opening reception, part of the Betty Hughes Memorial Exhibition, is scheduled for Friday, August 3, 2018, 6:00-8:00 p.m. I hope to see all of you there!

My work will remain on display through September 6, 2018 — A great opportunity to get copies of my books and comics, which will be sold through the center. All three volumes of my Tailipoe series, as well as copes of the Cap’n Catnip comic are available. 

Included for your enjoyment: Archie artwork; book illustrations; an art series based on classic games and toys; and the complete artwork from a 6-page Archie story with collaborator Stan Goldberg, from Archie Comics #540, “The Man of Mystery.”

Tim Fuller!

I met up with my Cap’n Catnip collaborator, terrific Tim Fuller, at the opening of the Illustration Domination art show at Clermont College in Batavia (Cincinnati area) Ohio. Tim was displaying some Catnip pages and art!

A new issue of Catnip will be released imminently, and Tim and I, along with Daryll Collins, are already working on the follow-up!

Bad Date!

One of my favorite go-to sites has long been A Bad Case Of the Dates, a daily repository of true stories (contributed by readers) of dates and romances gone horribly wrong. The site’s creator, Jared M. Gordon, has chosen to bring it to a conclusion at the end of 2017 with the story of his own personal worst experience in the dating pool.
Jared kindly invited me to contribute a bit of art to illustrate his sad tale.
It’s not to late to visit abadcaseofthedates.com and enjoy the collection of horror stories there!

Mixies!

Here’s the last of the Ed-U-Card decks featuring flip animation that I found while going through boxes. Unlike the others, this deck features original characters, not licensed properties. 

The illustrations are really beautiful; I’m sorry I couldn’t find an artist credit on the package.

Mixies is a game designed to be played as a solitaire game, or as a memory-type game for 2 to 3 players.
