New Comics for Sale, Graduation, and More!

Hi all! I’ve been extremely busy these past couple months, so I just wanted to give a shout out to everyone who visits this site and give you a little glimpse into what’s been going on in my life. First, as you can tell from the headline, I’m now making available for online purchase the two works I debuted at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art Festival in April, JETTY #2  and TABE COLLECTION.

To purchase and check out more info on these works, please visit my ON-SITE STORE ;)

In other news, I’ve finally graduated from the Center for Cartoon Studies! Yes, after two hard years of work I now have a Master of Fine Arts degree in Cartooning. The graduation ceremony was short and sweet, and I’m glad (and a little sad) to be moving on to the next stage in my life. I want to give a special shout-out and thank you to all the students, faculty, and staff at CCS, ESPECIALLY Steve Bissette, Kriota Willberg, and R. Sikoryak, all of whom took me under their wings and showed me the ropes by allowing me to be their teachers’ assistant this final school year. I want to also thank my girlfriend, Maia, for driving a long ways to come and get me in Vermont. And now for some pictures.

Finally, on a somber note, during my last stretch at CCS I heard unfortunate news that one of my best friends had passed away, an old wily pug named Julius. I would like to dedicate this blog-post to him and give a special thanks to my parents for taking care of him in his old age and for helping me to achieve my artist and professional goals. Here is a picture of Julius just after unwrapping his present from his final Christmas on this Earth.

Thank you for reading, and I hope you have a very nice day.

Special Winter Update!

Yo! Just want to show everyone some projects I’ve been getting into!  As some of you may know, I’m currently an MFA candidate at the Center for Cartoon Studies, frenziedly working on my thesis! What I’ve been posting on this site has been mostly sketches/single images of art, but what I’ve been working on for the past five months has been a brand new one-man-anthology called JETTY!

Yes, I am starting a new comic series and the first issue will be released in February! I’m not doing any pre-orders for this one, but I figure I’d give everyone a sneak-peek just the same.

I’m showing here the cover, plus a few promotional patches (featuring two of my favorite writers, Virginia Woolf and Lynd Ward, in case you’re wondering). Included also is the cover to a super-secret side project I’m working on called TABE (expected to be released way later in the year)!

As for me, I’m heading to Florida and Tennessee to see some family and friends during my winter break. But don’t worry, I’ll continue to update new art to LIGHTRIOT.COM every Mon, Wed, and Fri as usual! Please enjoy the previews and be on the lookout for JETTY #1 in February 2012!
