An old drawing of my old pal Jono. He was wearing really tight pants long before it was cool, and I'm sure he'll be wearing them long after.

Tom and I watched a weird Japanese movie a few months ago that I can't remember the name of. It was about a guy who spurts out grotesque bio-mechanical

I'm always trying to push the color in my figurative work, but I've always found it hard to make people with dark colored skin; greens, blues, blacks. It tends to obscure my linework more than I'm comfortable with. Here I compromised by making the figure pale green and putting some richer tones around him.
