This is an image that I stumbled across while doing research for All Star. It’s from a book on hitting that was written by Ted Williams. I was looking for good images of the body in motion during a swing. This image wasn’t too useful for that, but I think it looks absolutely awesome.
This Wednesday I’ll be talking along with Joel Gill at the Cambridge Public Library at 6:30. We’re going to be discussing our paths to comics as well as a bit about process like this little bit of strike out research I did for All Star. You should come join us. Nobody struck out better than […]
So if you’re in the Boston area next Wednesday, you should come by the Cambridge Public Library and say hello to me and Joel Gill. We’re going to be talking about our books, our process, and our upcoming projects, which are both westerns.
All Star’s out and in the stores, so I’m getting cracking on some new projects. A little bit of wild west revenge, and a little bit of high speed 60s Formula 1 racing.

I listen to music while I’m drawing, and I’d like to think that the music that I listen to has some sort of effect on the lines that I put on the page. With All Star being set in the 90s, it seemed natural to have a 90s playlist for the occasion. What I found […]
As a bit of research for my very very soon-to-be-released book, All Star, which is set in the late 1990s (my high school years), I revisited some of my yearbooks from high school. Sadly my senior yearbook has disappeared. I believe it was taken when someone broke into the storage facility where it was kept. […]
Process. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could find some quick and easy explanation for how to do anything? Something as easy as ABC or 123 or do re mi. How do you make friends? Follow this easy process. How do you get someone who doesn’t even know you exist to be attracted to you? […]
