Vera Rubin [#Inktober 2016][05/31]


Vera Rubin, Astronomer.

She went on to confirm the existence of dark matter — one of the most important milestones in the history of understanding space — by proving beyond doubt that galaxies spin faster than Newton’s Universal Law of Gravitation dictates they should.


As of 2016, she still hasn’t been awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for her accomplishments.

Piece of Steak [#Inktober 2016][04/31]


“He saw the danger, willed the act; but the arm was too heavy. It seemed burdened with a hundredweight of lead. It would not lift itself, and he strove to lift it with his soul. Then the gloved fist landed home.”

– Jack London, “Piece of Steak”

“Big Baby” ten-pager

I adapted Mary Jo Pehl’s short story “Big Baby” as a comic. It’s from her hilarious book of essays, Employee of The Month And Other Big Deals

Read the comic:


If you haven’t read her book yet, buy it and treat yourself to some belly laughs.

Star Trek

I’ve been rewatching Star Trek: The Original Series lately. Lots of stuff I don’t remember, many new lessons to learn.

The Mads are Back


My contribution to the fan art gallery for “The Mads are Back.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 stars Frank Conniff and Trace Beaulieu are taking movie riffing back onstage in their live show.

Ink and black watercolor on Arches cold press, then scanned, colored and lettered in Photoshop.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople

I want to see this movie badly. Based on the off-beat Wild Pork And Watercress by Barry Crump. The soundtrack is great, too.
