I HAVE HAD A DREAM, PAST THE WIT OF MAN TO SAY WHAT
DREAM IT WAS.
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

Hi all, I have two items of interest to let you know about.
First: Beginning this Monday in Manchester, NH, I’ll be helping out with a week-long comics summer-camp led by the wonderful Marek Bennett. Marek leads a program called Comics Workshop (http://comicsworkshop.wordpress.com/about-2/), and he’s being kind enough to take me under his wing and show me the ropes of teaching comics. I’m very grateful to him for this opportunity, and I plan on making a special mini-comic to commemorate the event. You can check out all of Marek’s art-related actions at his website http://www.marekbennett.com/ .
Second: I am now making my BRAND NEW comic-book, LIGHT RIOT: DEPARTURE available for pre-order. I am very excited about this and can’t wait to start mailing out copies on Sept. 28th. I’m offering a special incentive to pre-order now, so here’s the details right out of the STORE section of this website.
Note: I WILL be tabling at MICE (http://www.masscomics.com/) this year, so if you’re going to be in the area, bring your pre-order receipt and I will hand you your comic/tumbnail-sheet EARLY! This is a special incentive to come out to the Expo. Tell your friends!
