Indie Comics Fair 2017...
The latest poster I've designed for the Indie Comics Fair sponsored by S.P.A.C.E happening at the Ace Of Cups on March 4th.

The fella doing all the heavy lifting is NiX Comics mascot Pander Bear created by Bob Starker and Ken Eppstein...
the image is inspired by a classic Hulk cover by artist Jim Steranko. Go to the Comics Fair, JEEZ !!

NiX Comics trading cards...
Ken Eppstein, writer and publisher of NiX comics the rock and roll horror anthology, came up with some genre mash-ups to illustrate the NiX comics rock and roll horror anthology concept, and asked me to draw 'em up. A complete set of six, we sold them at a recent signing at The Laughing Ogre comic book store in Columbus. An event that highlighted Columbus comics favorite son Jeff Smith creator of Bone and other local comic book creators. We all signed books and talked comics, the first time I ever did anything like to be sure!

The Digest...
This is an image I created for the erotic gallery show "Il Gabinetto Segreto” that opened this weekend at The Vanderelli Room in Columbus Ohio, running until August 22nd.

I hoped to depict the marketing of kinks and perversions in a commercial world thru a mocked-up cover to a fictional periodical, defining American freedoms, and also exploiting alternative lifestyles. Any trip to a modern porn store, or visit to massive clip sites on the internet, demonstrate that nothing is off the table, everything is for sale. Access is instantaneous... what affect or any conclusions made about society are in the eye and mind of the beholder.

In this case, I've created a fictional Tumblr model Lydia Idiom (loosely based on the brilliant Cam Damage). Lydia uses her fractured body as an object of beauty and sexual desire, fulfilling a niche demand and lucrative use of her singular imagery for a fringe audience, empowering and exploitative simultaneously. Miss Idiom is missing an appendage, but has replaced it with one of power and control. She wears a dark leather glove on her other arm to balance her "Venus de Milo-esque" features. She is not weak, she is not damaged by her cracked outer shell, she has weaponized it. S
he owns her beauty, looking at you with with a knowing sneer... she is the predator, you are the prey.

I believe, in the future...
There will be such things as business flannel, and the "power hoodie".

I believe, in the future...
That everyone will be famous for fifteen episodes.

I believe, in the future...
We won't watch movies the way we do now. Films will come in a the form
of a skin cream that you rub on your forehead, slow-releasing the sounds,
sensations, and visuals, absorbed directly to your brain.
Popcorn will be a powder that you snort.

I believe, in the future...
Cats will grow thumbs and will be able to hold simple utensils and use small tools,
and have the dexterity to bounce a ball for annoyingly long periods of time... which you KNOW they'll do!!

I believe, in the future...
The most popular President of the United States in our history will have visible
neck tattoos, and CEO's will have many executive piercings.

I believe, in the future...
Pencil mustaches will make a comeback as a distinguished facial feature, but not for men.
