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.
For those interested, click HERE for a full video of the Center for Cartoon Studies graduation ceremony.
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.
