I was excited to see that the companion book to The Shatner Show, courtesy of Vangool Design and Uppercase Gallery, Calgary, is now available at Forbidden Planet here in NYC! So check it out, it's a really fun publication with a ton of formidable artists. My contribution was a spread about TJ Hooker.

Dunkin' Rage

This is an illustration for the BOSTON PHOENIX. It's for their new series “Sightings”, where a writer takes a true, observed incident and riffs on it, creating a fictional background story around it. You can check out the elaborate backstory behind this image here.

Casual Comics #1 Remastered

This is a mini-comic I originally published at MoCCA 2006, collecting some early Rabid Rabbit comics of mine along with stories I did for other zines and anthologies.

For the just released new edition, I redesigned the endpages with a new illustration and translated all German Comics into English (finally!). It features 6 comic shorts, behind a shiny metallic cover with a blockprinted logotype. Casual Comics #1 is now available at Forbidden Planet New York.

ID Magazine

I did multiple images for ID Magazine last week, for its forth Annual Business Issue. I'll post more on this as the isse comes out. Here's a small preview... Thanks to Thomas Porostocky at ID!

Rabid Rabbit 8

Besides our regular activities and assignments, my colleagues and I are working on the next issue of Rabid Rabbit, which will be focusing on The White Album of The Beatles. 30 artists will interpret the 30 songs of this classic.

To make things special, we've extended the size and lenght of the book. It will have 64 pages and will be square sized, 8.5 inches wide! Also, the cover will be plain white, and feature an embossed (!) Rabid Rabbit Logo, playing off Richard Hamilton's minimalistic cover design for The Beatles' self-titled ninth studio album. Of course, this Rabid Rabbit is also self-titled, to stay within the theme, and is simply called Rabid Rabbit 8.

I'm also overhauling the general desin of all editorial pages to make everything fit together nicely. Here's a look a the cover design, and a sneak peak at my own comic, Happiness Is A Warm Gun.

Coney Island

Here are some drawings I did last year at Coney Island's Astroland. I'm very interested in the ongoing changes over there and planning to go back very soon to work on a longer story about this topic.
