Leaving the Planet

keepfightinThe above watercolor illustration is one of about 20 of mine that will be on display in January at Joe Bar in Seattle (810 E Roy St, in Capitol Hill). The show, titled “Leaving the Planet” (doesn’t that sound nice right about now??), has its opening reception on Jan. 12 from 6 to 9 p.m., as part of the Capitol Hill Art Walk.

This is my first solo art show (that’s not related to my comics work) and I’m doubly excited to have it at such a vital cafe, in my own neighborhood, where I’ve been coming to for more than a decade for its great art and atmosphere.

(Partly) Sunny Days Ahead

seafuturecolorfinal

Here’s an illustration I did for City Arts’ “future list” issue (January 2016), with my own tongue-in-cheek “suggestions, acknowledgements, and predictions for the future of Seattle.” A couple of these references will only resonate with my fellow Seattlites: “Bertha,” for instance, is the name of an enormous tunnel-boring drill that’s been stuck underground for most of the past two years.

Orphans

Orphans

For this year’s Short Run festival in Seattle, I co-created a little book called Orphans with my teaching colleague Sierra Nelson. Sierra contributed the words and I made the illustrations.

Here’s the wraparound cover I drew for the 35th issue, created in September and published & distributed to the participants in October, 2015.
