Is This Funny?

Postedon Dec 8, 2015in Process

A funny thing happened last week. It’s been quiet here on the blog. I’m slogging my way through drawing The Walk. And I have been slogging my way through a new post about how I’m producing the art for the book (you can read part 1 and part 2 of that particular journey). But I was invited […]

Speed Is Simple

Speed Is Simple

Postedon Nov 25, 2015in Business

New post for the B² Interactive blog. I’m becoming a bit obsessed about speed. Site speed that is. Most websites run off of some sort of database, which makes a lot of calls back and forth, slowing a site down. Now that we live in a mobile world with cellular speeds, there’s a movement to not only […]

Making A Living To Support Your Comics

Postedon Oct 27, 2015in Advice

Working full time as a cartoonist is a wonderful dream. Some people get a chance to do it. But it’s a hard life. As a successful cartoonist told me once, “sometimes I make $100,000 a year, and sometimes I make $10,000. You just never know.” And that’s a successful cartoonist. Most of us are lucky […]

I wrote another post for the B² Interactive blog, this time about a subject that is near and dear to my heart: creativity. Most people in any organization feel like they cannot possibly be creative or contribute to a creative project in a meaningful way. I’m here to tell you that it’s simply not true. If […]

The Sorry State of Mobile Webcomics

The Sorry State of Mobile Webcomics

Postedon Sep 28, 2015in Webcomics

We live in a world where we carry around a tiny, powerful computer in our pocket. That it makes phone calls is almost secondary. We interact with the digital world with our mobile devices. Over half of all web traffic is now from a mobile web browser. So it is with great dismay that webcomics […]

Will the iPad Pro be the ultimate mobile creation tool?

Will the iPad Pro be the ultimate mobile creation tool?

Postedon Sep 21, 2015in Tools

Last month I wrote about my mobile gear. In short, my bag contains: an iPad Air, a Logitech Bluetooth Keyboard, a sketchbook and assorted pens. That’s about all I need. I have a Wacom stylus, but I don’t like drawing on my iPad. It’s not a fun experience, neither through input or the assortment of […]

I want to talk about the independent comic book.This weekend I read through the first volume of The Complete Eightball collection. […]

Mobile Creation On The Go

Postedon Aug 24, 2015in Tools

I worked at a small design firm early in my career. One of the owners possessed the object of my desire: a titanium PowerBook G4. He would bring it to the office on his motorcycle. Worked on it all day in his corner office, doing everything from programming to design work. And at the end […]
