Hey, all! Been working pretty hard to get THE BIG KAHN ready for the printer over here, but wanted to duck in and add to the chorus of working studio photos. Here are two quick snaps of my fairly cluttered drawing table… usually, I script on my laptop from any point around the studio, but […]

“Sibylline imbues each short with a clear and strongly realized emotional core. Most enjoyable, nearly every story paints sex as a positive, joyful experience. There’s no shame or humiliation here, as nine of the women (unfortunately, not the doll) are willing partners in each act, and everyone comes out of their experiences richer for it. […]

This is really an experiment on my part so I’d love to hear what people think, commentwise, suggestionwise, criticismwise, or questionwise. Work on my Turkmenistan books is going along well.

“If there is a healing process, this unforgettable graphic reminiscence is surely its catalyst. Collaborator Alfred evocatively illuminates Ka’s memoir of childhood innocence and grown-up pain. Special mention must be made of his extraordinary use of color and photography as magical elements to convey the emotional ambiguity and banality of evil.” So said Richard Pachter […]
