Sexual Entrepreneur

If you missed it earlier in the week, be sure to take a drive with the latest episode of Forlorn TV, featuring guest storyteller Joe McAdam.

Everyone who survived the 70s did it their own way. Some did it with cocaine, others with smooth jams. And others rented out their mangina to the highest bidder.

Aftermath Iron Man

After a day of being surrounded by far more superhero comics than usual, I felt obliged to post a rejected Iron Man cover.

Thanks to everybody who came out in the rain yesterday for the signing at HUB comics. It was a great time all around, thanks in no small part to store ringleader and pop culture encyclopedia Tim Finn.

Eisner Week

If you're in the Boston/Cambridge area tonight, stop by and see me in conversation with Denis Kitchen about Will Eisner. I absolutely promise to bring up the train wreck that was The Spirit movie. There's no way I can help myself. But I also promise to geek out completely about typography and layout, so hopefully it will all balance out.

Mourning Paper

Ironically, while I was drawing this illustration for The New York Times, concerning the failing health of alternative weekly newspapers, I was listening to a podcast about the failing health of newspapers. Or is that tragedy?

Charles A. Hartman Fine Art

The gallery that represents me, Charles A. Hartman Fine Art, has relaunched their site. I believe it would be categorized by people in my Ohio hometown as "right purty." Take a gander.

Story Shapes

Via io9: great illustrations (by Maya Eilam) of Kurt Vonnegut's theories of archetypal stories. There's certainly room for argument about these, but they're a compelling, elegantly simple way to think about narrative structure.

Boing Boing, Bolling

Ruben Bolling (creator of the great Tom the Dancing Bug, a lifesaver for me while working a day job back in Columbus, Ohio) gave a nice shout out to Life with Mr. Dangerous on Boing Boing's Gweek podcast! Listen in as two men I respect immensely stuggle with my cumbersome last name.

David's Teatime

I'm not sure when David Matthews started sending me his work. I know it was during his university days. Regardless, it was beautiful work then, and it's only gotten better since.

Treat yourself to some of his gorgeous line art while I look at some of the ridiculously nice prints of his I've squirreled away here in the studio.
