i like making these “what if…” assemblage comic book covers. they’re mindless fun. i feel collage is a taken-for-granted thing in comics and quickly making these covers accesses the same cut-up-stream-of-consciousness part of my brain that i have the most fun getting to when making comix.
1. richard hell is capt. america.
2. how cool would moebius xmen be? i like a lot of the ideas in xmen but can’t stand reading the actual comics with exception of grant morrison’s xmen. i do like 90s cartoon.
3. thought of tom taggart covers after doing this one.
4. superboy as robot gone wrong.
5. one of the most fun things about doing these is getting to editorialize/have a conversation with these jungian-pop icons. like putting forth the idea that richard hell is capt. america or that ditko’s spiderman is a fugitive, distant and wanted by the public.

i made the majority of these drawings while my granddad was in hospice
not everyone gets how tuff that is because not everyone is close to their grandparents
for me my grandparents were my parents and best friends
these were all done with a fat sharpie marker on lazer paper and were a great place to direct all the overwhelming energy that comes with death and grief
i’m honored to have shared these drawings at baltimore’s open space and seattle’s cairo

I went to a chocolate “factory” in Issaquah, WA with a couple buddies today to meet up with an architectural drawing group. The chocolate company was started by an Austrian immigrant in 1942 in Seattle and later moved to Issaquah in 1956, where dude basically built a small bavarian village in the Issaquah forest. I drew a picture of the chapel.
My beloved dog, Cosmo, in bunny disguise. I drew this for an art auction at a good friend’s animal shelter.
