Dr. Zaius

Here's the piece I made for the "Art of the Apes" show at Creature Features. Dr. Zaius is a cut paper collage piece. The show just opened and runs through July 27, 2014. Contact the gallery for purchase information, and visit the website for more work by many other fine artists.

RIP Casey Kasem

One of my tricks for writing comic book stories based on tv properties is to imagine the actors' voices when I'm writing dialogue. If it sounds right coming from them, then I've done it right. Writing Scooby-Doo for so many years, Casey Kasem (who voiced Shaggy) was often in my mind while working. I feel like he's been a presence in my life for such a long time through various animated characters as well as his long running radio program. Now he's gone, but his voice will live on. You can read more about him here.

Ask Me Anything #40

As always, the first Monday of the month means it's time for "Ask Me Anything."

You can ask me any questions you'd like, whether it's about my work, opinions, influences, favorites, least favorites, or anything else you think I might have an answer for. Questions can be posted in the comments section below, and I'll either answer them there, or in a separate post sometime later in the month.

Please take the time to view the previous questions so that we don't wind up with a lot of repetition. I've been asked a lot of good, thought provoking questions in the past as well as some really banal ones, all of which I tried to answer. You can see the previous questions by visiting Ask Me Anything  #1#2 ,  #3#4#5#6 , #7 , #8#9,  #10,  #11,  #12 , #13#14,  #15 , #16#17 , #18 , #19,  #20,  #21#22,  #23#24#25#26#27#28#29#30#31#32#33#34#35#36#37#38, and #39.  Answers not found following the questions can be found in the archives section for each associated month under Ask Me Anything.

Now ask away.
