Cat and Mouse

I trapped a cat this week. My wife trapped a mouse. There might be some Valentine's Day implications here, but probably nothing good.

Desk of Doom

I like to think the ludicrous shamble of my desk at work is some kind of compost heap of ideas. But maybe it's just a shame.

Video Retrospective

Two college-days classics, plus my two touching Xtranormal cartoon dramas, indexed chronologically for the nonsense completist.

Satan Repackaged

Celebrating two of my favorite Satans, Chernebog from Fantasia, and Venger from Dungeons and Dragons.

In retrospect, kudos to the creators at Disney and Marvel Studios, for these revamped Satans of childhood. Not only are they fresher than just going with "Satan" or "the Devil," but it was probably the only way to get project approval. I'm sure there are others—the Marvel Universe always used "Mephisto," for instance.

It's not easy being the embodiment of evil in a G-rated world.

Crossings at the River Styx

watch me change from pencil to ink in two easy steps

After a previous print and a few drawings of "underworld" subjects, I realized it must be time for a series. At the rate I work, it could take years. And of course, at the rate of damnation inherent in even imaginary people, it could take a lot of years to show a representative sampling of what crosses into the next world.

Birth of an E-book

Buy me for a dollar!

After repeated failure to upload the comic book version of "The Monkey and the Ghost Ship" to the Amazon/Kindle store, I backed up one technical level and e-published the storybook from whence it spewed. As it turns out, Kindle Direct Publishing is much more tolerant of text files than of graphics. Still, I managed to include a cover (above) and a few illustrations.

With minimal effort, the book can be read on almost any device. I do not own a Kindle, but I downloaded the Kindle App to my iPhone and can now reap colossal rewards. Another cool bonus is that you can get quite a few classic books for free—I got "The Three Musketeers" and "The Mysterious Stranger," even though I prefer not to read on a tiny screen. Good backup entertainment for when I get stuck in waiting rooms or fall down a well.

No reviews yet—I gave the book file away to most of the people who would ever have bothered to review it, and I'm not sure if the site will take reviews from people who have not bought it.
