A month or so ago I got up with some colleagues and rapped about comics and journalism at NCMR in Boston. Here’s the video. Enjoy!
I’m not sure if Fuma lost his money in the Kouga-Kola Machine or if he’s just succumbing to his hate for the franchise… either way, his kicking the shit out of the machine.

Yeah, so… My database got hacked and I lost about two years of posts, so… that’s why, if you look closely, you’ll notice two years of posts have disappeared. It happens to the best of us, right? So kids, the lesson is remember to backup your data.
But, I’m back… and I’m gonna keep this site dedicated to my work from here on out. You can see more of my musings and random interests over at my new tumblr, d-pi.tumblr.com. Also Gratuitous Ninja: Loan Sharks is still up and I plan on having some new GratNin news in early March.
So thanks for being patient, I appreciate the support and all of the cats who keep checking for me. It’s gonna be an exciting year. I’ve just completed an adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked this Way Comes and I’ve completely finished inking Prince of Cats. Now I am excited to start several new, exciting projects. I will check in here occasionally to give peeks and stuff.

I’m up at the KDU Blog. It’s designed by Aerosyn Lex, a professional, so it’s a bit cleaner than this ol’ mess.
tht Behance Mag did an interview on the kid awhile back… figured I should post it. I forgot… and if I didn’t, I forgot that I didn’t forget.
“The problem a lot of artists have is the scripts are not really narratives anymore they seem to be more polemics really. I mean, if an artist is given a script with a story they wouldn’t be allowed to go week after week doing pin-ups.”
“The panel has to exist by itself. otherwise the integrity of the art is in jeopardy. Until the artist arrives at a point where he realizes that by drawing a single panel he has a single work of art that exists by itself as a single statement which can live by itself, only then can all the panels live together. And then you reach a totality that is completely out of the realm of the infantile kind of page continuities that comics are filled with”
