AND THE IMPERIAL VOTARESS PASSED ON,
IN MAIDEN MEDITATION, FANCY FREE.
YET MARK’D I WHERE THE BOLT OF CUPID FELL:
IT FELL UPON A LITTLE WESTERN FLOWER,
BEFORE MILK-WHITE, NOW PURPLE WITH LOVE’S WOUND,
AND MAIDENS CALL IT, LOVE-IN-IDLENESS.
I AM THAT MERRY WANDERER OF THE NIGHT.
I JEST TO OBERON, AND MAKE HIM SMILE
WHEN I A FAT AND BEAN-FED HORSE BEGUILE,
NEIGHING IN LIKENESS OF A FILLY FOAL:
AND SOMETIMES LURK I IN GOSSIP’S BOWL,
IN VERY LIKENESS OF A ROASTED CRAB.
Hey all! Just making a quick announcement that I’ll be exhibiting (aka selling my comics and zines) at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art Festival this weekend in NYC! The fest will be going from Saturday to Sunday, 11am to 6 pm at 69th Regiment Armory
68 Lexington Avenue. More info on it HERE!
I’ll be exhibiting with my friend and fellow New College of Florida alumni, Morgan Boecher, who will be selling a collection of his awesome comic about being trans male, What’s Normal Anyway. You can (and should) read an online version of Morgan’s work HERE!
I will be selling an assortment of various comics and publications new and old, including (but not limited to):
JETTY #2 and TABE COLLECTION (both debuting at MoCCA):
I’ll still have copies of JETTY #1, which you can check out HERE!
LIGHT RIOT: DEPARTURE
And of course, I’ll be selling LIGHT RIOT: DEPARTURE, of which I recommend you read this flattering review of in the Comics Bulletin HERE!
I WAS A TEENAGE GARGOYLE
This is an awesome anthology featuring my work and recently release by SAWDUST PRESS. You should totally check it out HERE!
PLUS I’ll have a number of odds and ends with me and will be included in at least two other new anthologies that will be floating around the festival!
So, in conclusion, if you’ll happen to be in the NYC area this coming weekend (April 28-29, 2012), please come out to MoCCA Fest. It’s bound to be a blast!

Hi everybody! Today is a very special day, in that it marks the one year anniversary of this very sketch-blog! Yes, exactly one year ago I went public with this website and began posting my art every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday! I really hope you’ve been enjoying my humble sketches and I hope to bring you many more art projects for many years to come :)
Okay! In order to celebrate this momentous occasion (and also because it’s my birthday), I’m introducing the first issue of my brand new magazine: JETTY!
I know I gave a sneak-peek at this a couple months ago, but now it’s all ready to be released and I’m very excited!
About the project: I’m intending JETTY to be somewhat of an arts and literary magazine with a major focus on sequential art and abstract comics. Right now it’s just me, but I hope to include other contributers for art, articles, interviews, and much more!
Right now JETTY is only available here at LIGHTRIOT.COM, but I hope to have a digital version up and running soon so you can check it out on your iPad, Kindle, etc. You can click below to order a copy, or check out the store!
7 1/2″ x 10″ color covers, b/w interior

This one’s for all the little beasts.
Birth of Skyer.
Notes I make.
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!
Hi! Hope everyone is having a happy and healthy Thanksgiving;)
Just posting today to let you all know that some of my art has appeared as the title-card for the latest episode of the hilarious cartooning blog “The Ink Panthers Show”. Check out the piece below and then click here to give the podcast a listen. Also, I want to express my thanks and gratitude to everyone who has ordered a comic from me and who has supported my art in other ways. You guys are the best. Peace!
