Seniors Creating Art class in Greenwood





Today I set up 4 different art stations: pastels, acrylic painting, Chinese ink painting, and adult coloring. One resident made many face paintings in ink.

Drawings for Senior Time







Seniors Creating Art - Mask Making on grocery bags






I just love all of the masks made today at my Seniors Creating Art class! We all start with the same palette, then discuss a bunch of ideas, and then people go their own way. It's always a delightful surprise at the end!

Photos from my classes with Seniors Creating Art







Seniors Creating Art sends me to different locations to teach 8-week free art classes. So far I have taught in White Center, Phinney Ridge, and Rainier Beach.

Paint & Sip with Seniors Creating Art





These are photos from my first "Paint & Sip" that I taught in December 2015.  They encompass an afternoon spent learning to paint and drinking wine along the way. Everyone leaves with their painting at the end. As you can see, everyone's painting is a tad different, which is great because it shows off their creative leanings and their personality. I'll be doing this fairly regularly in 2016.

Short Run 2015! (Just a few photos! More to come!)

Me at the show in my utility vest. Josh Simmons said I
looked like a Wal-Mart greeter.

Jim Woodring!

Record attendance at new venue, Fisher Pavilion
at Seattle Center! 

Virtual Reality by Most Ancient.

It wouldn't be our festival without a mammoth
Bake Sale! 

We hit the jackpot with a center spread in The Seattle Weekly!

My last overheard comic strip - Mass Transit Gospels

I take the bus a lot more now since I left the office world. I heard this vocal battle one day and recruited by friend Brian Long to help me recreate the tech language for this strip.

Benn Ray at Atomic Books recruited me to draw these overheard strips for a feature in (formerly) The B Daily (then changed to B the site) in the Baltimore Sun. I drew 28 of them in total, since about 2005. They just ended the feature this month. Benn luckily has always cross-posted them on Mutant Funnies too.

A Bit Of Undigested Potato - UK anthology


I'm the only American artist in this UK anthology edited by Keara Stewart! I drew a page about my worst fear - seeing Pennywise the Clown on the street.

Seniors Creating Art


I got a job with Seniors Creating Art - a small non-profit that sends art teachers to senior communities a little out of the way for 8-week art classes. I am teaching Linoleum Block Printing in White Center. Most of my students had not even drawn anything for 60 years and I asked them to draw, transfer that drawing to a block, cut the block, and print it. It's been a great experience. See below Melinda's process. She is even drawing at home for fun, which she has never done!

Melinda's finished print.

Women's Review of Books

I'm really proud of this full-page comic I drew for "Women's Review of Books"! 

Pecha Kucha: Comics! NORTHWEST ROOTS


I was honored to be amongst this awesome group of cartoonists who performed at 
Pecha Kucha last month. 


My piece was entitled, "Ideal Pants" and it was a funny survey of problems and 
potential solutions for women's pants.
