If you've ever visited this site before, you'll notice that it's got an all new look and design. Over the next little while, this site will undergo some minor changes. Thanks for your patience as I roll out new pages for portfolio samples, comics and more. Thanks!
It's been a while now since I got an iphone and in that time, I've grown very fond of taking pictures. Whether I'm in the studio, waiting for a train, at home or out and about, it's become a habit snapping pictures using many of the great photo apps available. My favorite is Instagram. I'm hooked! I take a picture and share it with my friends who follow me in the app. Now I have amassed hundreds of photos and in the interest of sharing them with those of you not using Instagram, I've added a new site: The Photo Feed. It's still in need of some design tweaks but the blog is up and running with over a hundred photos for you to peruse. On the main page are 56 randomly selected images. If there's nothing of interest, please reload the page and you'll see a whole new array of pics! Please visit and if there are any photos that you respond to, please leave a comment. Thanks!
Please pardon the mess while I transition the blog into a new look. Thanks!
As Kevin mentioned yesterday, ABC News will present an environmental special called Earth 2100, which is hosted by Bob Woodruff and will feature a graphic novel-style sequences by Josh Neufeld, Sari Wilson, Joe Infurnari, George O’Connor, Tim Hamilton and Leland Purvis. The special runs tonight on ABC at 9 p.m. Eastern.
From Kamandi and Scout to “Old Man Logan,” comics have had a long history of detailing life after everything falls apart, and it’s pretty cool to see that ABC noticed.

This Monday December 8th, I'll have a story up at Smith Magazine as part of their online anthology of Next-Door Neighbor Stories edited by Dean Haspiel. Titled, Vs, this story was written by Alexis Sottile and I back in the day and it is a harrowing tale of my cryptozoological New York rental history! See! My terrible run-ins with vociferous fowls! Frankensteinian pooches! Tentacled jam bands! Drunken cro-magnons! Pill-pushing werewolves and many many more! IT'S ALL 100% TRUE MEMOIR COMICS AT THEIR FINEST! See you there!
PC magazine has posted a piece about the top ten webcomics most deserving of more recognition and the whole Act-i-vate collective was included! Eric Griffith had this to say:
Is it fair to include an entire collective of comics? When you can't pick just one, I think so. ACT-I-VATE now numbers 42 stories, written and drawn by a number of independent comic book creators, including names like Molly Crabapple, Dean Haspiel, and Dan Goldman. The stories range from a treatise on super-heroics (The Transmigration of ULTRA-Lad!), to psychedelic romance ( Kelly), to the silent film pastiche (Vulcan & Vishnu), and other oddities. If there's a downside, it's that the artists aren't always on a timetable, so many of the best stories have yet to reach a resolution. (Art from Adrew Dimitt's Drockleberry.)
