Traveling in Spain for a week or two - we drove through this gap, looking for parking in Toledo…

Portrait commissioned for my wedding from Graham Chaffee.
Here it is framed:
And here it is in a poorly lit room on the wall next to a James Stokoe Galactus:

So, this is nice - but check out that awesome Galactus!

Report dog bites, Earl Schuler, 1941, silkscreen poster

Most of the people that saw this in 1941 failed to report dog-bites and now most of them are dead - so there ya go…

Been working away at TH&TH - adding a few scenes here and there. Here’s a sampler of the new material - Redd Foxx joins the cast :)

Double-block Lino cut of an Irish Elk, 8”x10”, from two days ago.
Oil painting of headless folk singer, 12”x12”, from 1996.
Oil painting of a bunny rabbit on a cast-resin skull, from last year.

Sorry it’s been so long between posts - comics been derailed by a lotta other projects the last few weeks, but hoping to make some progress today. In the meantime, here’s a couple of block prints I pulled from a ‘woodcut’ that was actually cut in a big rubber mat :)

Here’s a poor photo of the flashback scene that opens part 3 of TH&TH - it’s ridiculous how long I spent finding hair, clothes, and a popular 50s card game - be smart and set your stories in the future where you can just make shit up…

My very first print! A #monotype done in #printmaking class at #thearmory in Pasadena. #hewantsyoursandwich

I love this

This one was really hard to light - originally, they were both topless, but my artistic limitations made a white t-shirt necessary… I’m still not happy with it - some of these half tones look like wrinkles - the finished version will likely be different. Oh, and there go the dogs from my last book, on their way to disaster :)

These are the right-side panels from a four-page section of TH&TH. it’s a dual-narrative thing, with most of each page devoted to one group of folks planning a bank-heist while these two plot a little lunch-hour nookie…

Those of you in the Los Angeles area should come on down and buy some cheap art!

Page 48 of TH&TH - all good heists begin with squabbling…

Hahahahaha - writing sucks so much… Sigh…

Sorry it’s been awhile since my last post - here are a few panels from chapters one, two and three of TH&TH - I’m trying to do at least 3 pages a week, but life keeps getting in the way…

So, I’m gonna open each chapter of the new book with a big, single-panel flashback page. These will document the ups and downs of our couple’s marriage and fill in some of the back story. ┬áHere are the first two - with about 20 pages of present day action in between (and by ‘present day’, I mean 1962, lol).

I wasn’t sure how to approach a flashback, and it took me awhile to settle on this ink-wash approach - these scenes will be the only images to feature grays at all, at all…

Also - I finally have a title for this thing: To Have and to Hold - so, there ya go…
