Just for fun, I've been taking a spare hour here and there to create some cut paper collage portraits of various characters from Adventure Time. I really like the wide range of character types and the overall design aesthetic for the show, and the characters are something i can replicate pretty quickly and easier with a pair of scissors and some paper.
None of them have backgrounds yet, but they will and then will wind up on my online store where they will be available for purchase. These will be very cheap with the bulk of them in the $15.00 - $20.00 range, and only a few being slightly more expensive.
I'm not sure exactly when they'll be made available, but I'm hoping to do so before the end of October, so keep checking back. In the meantime, if there's a particular character you're interested in please let me know. I've made around 40 of them so far.

My companion blog, The Grim Gallery, reached its 500th post today. This is a blog I created in order to put all of the monster and horror images I've accumulated over the years out into circulation for other monster lovers to enjoy at the rate of one image per day. That means that as of today there are 500 monster pictures for you to look at.

It's been officially announced, so now I can tell you as well. NBC has bought the rights to my comic book series, Midnight, Mass. which was published as two mini-series through DC's Vertigo line. This is the third time that this has happened and hopefully this time will be the charm that sees this come to fruition. I'm a bit more hopeful this time with the talent involved.

Here's a look at a few of the panels from the first page of the story that Glen Brogan and I contributed to the forthcoming Strange Kid Comix Magazine #3.
I'm a huge fan of Twin Peaks and it was with great pleasure that I finally was able to tell a story set within the framework of that television series, a thrill augmented by seeing Glen's dead on visual interpretation of that world. I owe a debt of thanks to Strange Kid founder, Rondal Scott for making this possible.
Way back when I was writing The X-Files comic book series I had planned to include a story in which Mulder and Scully attended the retirement party of Gordon Cole, the FBI Regional Bureau Chief played by David Lynch in Twin Peaks. This would have also included cameos by other FBI agents from Twin Peaks including Albert Rosenfield and Denise Bryson, the character played by David Duchovny. Unfortunately, The X-Files comic was brought to an end before I got to this story.
Strange Kid Comix Magazine #3 was made possible through the generosity of contributors via Kickstarter. If you'd like to pick up a copy, there is still time to make a donation through the Strange Kid Kickstarter campaign which has more information about what's included in this fun issue.
