So, ever slightly to the left, for those of you on desk or laptop computational devices, there is an option to hit "Daily Draw," those of you visiting us on a tablet or phone will see a Menu above this verbiage that I am vomiting through my keyboard in the hopes that someone might someday stumble across this little hill fort of my "art". So as well as try to keep this journal updated on at least a weekly basis, daily I will be inundating you with snippets of drawing that I have slashed out. I guarantee you that these will not be high art, fine art, socially responsible or otherwise condusive to the well being of the planet and its inhabitants. There will be no trigger warnings, consider everything NSFW. I've met your boss he will not get this, and that's alright, he has his little battles to fight, don't make this one of them.
A kind word
This is from a blog post from a patron and a fan of mine.For the past few weeks, I’ve been showing off the sketches and commissions of comic art that I’ve collected at comic conventions over the past few years. Today is a little different.
Comic fandom is special in that you can own an original piece of art. You can’t do that with a book. No one owns the original copy of a song (though maybe a white label record is close). Comics are art, you can own the item that others only have a print or photo of.
A few years ago, at the Boston Comic Con I saw then X-Factor inker Pat Davidson. On his table he had a box of original pages for sale, as low as $20. I loved that entire series of X-Factor, so I thought I’d flip through. Conversation pages are typically more affordable than splashy action shots. But talky scenes are Peter David’s strong suit, so I knew I would find something good. And I found pages 7-8 from X-Factor #215.
For those that didn’t read the book, this was a marriage proposal that was years in the making. I had to have it. $50 for the spread. Every convention I flip through portfolios of pages, but this is the only time I’ve pulled the trigger. The penciled pages are too rich for my blood, but this is one piece I’ll always appreciate.
So next time you’re looking to buy some original art, remember the inkers. Their lack of popularity (in comparison to pencilers) may just help you get that piece you love without hitting your wallet as hard.
So that’s it. That’s everything I own. But with Worcester’s MASSive Con in June (and within walking distance from my house!) and Boston Con in July/August, I hope to more to show off soon.

The Boston Comiccon has come and gone for another year.
It was a great time, thanks to all the wonderful people who made the event such a hit.
Special thanks to Bob Shaw. You Rock!
