This fall I’ve been working on a little Punchin’ Bag project to have ready for next “con season”. Here’s a preview of some of the panels.
I’m trying to be better about posting on theslimjames. Here’s a collage of the Punchin’ Bag I’ve done in the intervening months. I’ve begun to experiment more with layout and technique. In particular, inkwashes for shadows give me a little more control over light and dark.

The gang at Gentleman & Scholar Comics had a pretty good showing at the MASSive Comic Con down in Worcester last weekend – we broke double digits for items sold!
In addition, I should have a big announcement on The Punchin’ Bag coming soon (hint: think ‘x’)

In the upcoming Tales to Admonish II I’ll have a one-pager on the ruminations of Spidercide. Here’s a first look:
