Lady Hobo

A fan of the last hobo images I drew asked me to make one for her and her daughter of a girl hobo, so I did, and here it is. I hope you all like it.

Naked Cancer

 My friend Sara Pharris has cancer. She runs the Cancer Princess blog, and she's started a new project called NakedCancer.org, with which she aims to "strip cancer awareness down to its birthday suit." She said she wanted a logo like the one she designed, just different and "original."

I wanted to concentrate on strength more than sexiness because it's not really a porn site, you know? But the strength it takes to bare it all and maybe bear it all for the cause is something that should be encouraged and glamorized, says me. So, I built silhouettes of women jumping, suggesting their nudity, and made them orange because I thought orange was a very bold color, though that might change. She wanted a type treatment, so I looked at some of the most common ones that are tried and true, and then I took another look and wanted an amateur look to one, and that's my favorite, #4. It reminds me of Bee-gees covers or the seventies and maybe seventies porn or something. Anyway, there's something more friendly about it.

My book of poetry is published


I have a book. It's good. It's called the Haunting of Ninjatown. I have been doing alternate cover things lately. I am liking them. 

You should buy it. If you buy it, you should write a review on Amazon. I am going to sprinkle weird alternative covers all over the Internet just because I'm feeling saucy.

How to Make Tea

I made this to show people how to make tea, and I also wanted to do something fun on the tea side of the Darjeeling Café. Even though we're concentrating a lot of our efforts on wine, trying to turn our restaurant into the wine destination of Central Virginia, we don't want to forget where we came from. After all, this whole thing started with tea.

We're much more like a European tea room than anything else: come in for some tea, stay for lunch, hang out with friends, before you know it, it's time to enjoy a great beer or wine, then it's dinner time. That's how I lived when I was in Europe (not every day of course, but often), and I think that luxury is missing in people's lives here in the USA.

St. Patrick's at the Darjeeling Café in Staunton

I made this little type treatment for a sign we hung at the Darjeeling Café on St. Patrick's Day. It was a quickie, but I like the way it came out. I would change the bend in the arrow to a shamrock shape if I had to do it all over again.

I am a lab researcher. We work on particles containing anti-tuberculosis drugs, meant for inhalation by patients whose lungs are infected. Our lab's particles are not 'nano'-particles as the current fashion dictates, and a potential collaborator recently made a (good-natured) joke about how the size of our particles reminds him of flying elephants. If you permit, I'd like to answer him with scientific rationale as well as your poetic image,  modified as attached.
This is the great email I got today.

Skull Maze

This is another maze I did for the upcoming Murder Bros. package. I think people are going to really like this. It's going to be a really cool thing you can get at our shows.
