Here’s some more concept work for my new bird book. Unlike my last book-- Gwango’s Lonesome Trail, the new one will feature ink illustrations. Because of this I’ve been working the old ink pen like mad lately, trying to come up with a line style I’m happy with.


In other news, this week I have an article featured on the website Roadside Peek. It’s about my encounters with a bizarre little roadside attraction called the Lonely Bones.

So if you’re an aficionado of prehistoric dinosaurs and humdinger tales, click here to have a gander!

That birdman is TOO COOL for words!

Fan-freekin'-tastic. The birds you've been conjuring up are magnifico. The subject could be anything though - you're style is completely fresh. Off the heezy. I'm done embarrassing myself now.

Thanks Danny and Craig.

Ryan, thanks for taking the time to mourn the Lonely Bones. Just give it some time man, and the pain will slowly get better.

Hey Greg! Yep, old Duckmans managed to become even weirder and more dilapidated then he was before! That’s what booze does to you!

Thanks natascha and Mr. Urban Barbarian.

Sir Pickledog, thanks for checking out my article. I really appreciate it!

Young Vo, Ben and Josh Parpan. Thanks! And Josh, for a kid in Elementary school you sure stay up mighty late. It’s almost midnight, got to bed son!

Hans, coming from a talented chap such as yourself, that’s a swell compliment.

We're stopping by to thank you for your return visits to our blog. Congrats on the beautiful recent book.. it looks AMAZING.. fascinating imagery. I get the feeling it's (somewhat) from your life experience. The new one looks like it will be a clucking good tail. Pen line is such fun to throw yourself into~ Let 'er rrrrip!

Cheers, Justin!
