I'm doing a reading and book release on Monday at Desert Island in Brooklyn

Think of me as the Devil, small and naked, a little cat in one hand, a toy plane in the other. Think of Brooklyn as the Garden of Eden, full of wild beasts in repose among the lambs and the quails. Think of Gabriel Fowler as God, suffering me to darken the threshold of paradise. Next Monday night. At 7.
(I'll also be talking a bit about the Conversation Gardening project I'm doing... so bring some ideas you want me to draw about...)

On chewing rocks plus some weird plants

Been on the road a bit lately. Stopped for a few days in San Pedro in LA a week and a half back. Went for a walk by the water with Todd Baxter and looked at crazy rocks. The holes are chewed into them by little crustaceans building apartment complexes.

Visiting LA from the middle west is a visual feast. If I could I would just be drawing the weird plants all day long.

Conversation Gardening mini finally printed and in the webstore (orders made for God and the Devil at War in the Garden before July 7 will include a complementary copy). 13 pages, risographed by Zak Sally. The back cover breaks down the experiment and the fine print. Send me a question.

Conversation Gardening, Part One

Okay, so word is out (I guess that's what happens when you start telling people about stuff) so I'm going to begin posting a digital version of this strip, now. I'll continue it tomorrow.

Click here for part 2.

God and the Devil at War in the Garden

My new book is done. God and the Devil at War in the Garden is available in the shop now. This is the cover:
The book is large format, 9" x 12 1/4", 24 pages, with a fold out back cover. The main story is a piece about the Devil that didn't quite get finished for Rage of Poseidon. Here's page 9:

It also includes a collaborative strip I did with novelist Kyle Beachy and a piece I did back in 2011 about a vacant lot near my old place in Chicago. It's got a few drawings from a show I did at the Elmhurst Art Museum in 2012 and elsewhere (the book's title refers to the cover drawing which wraps around and folds into the back).

The first 25 orders will go out with a free 13 page minicomic called Conversation Gardening. It's both a comic and the beginning of a little experiment I'm embarking on. I'll explain more later this week.
