New Drawing - "Gash"

Ebony pencil and a touch of charcoal. This is a poor photo too.

2008 Ignatz Awards - I'm nominated...

To coincide with the annual SPX convention, I've been nominated for an Ignatz Award for my story in Hotwire Comics #2 (Fantagraphics Books) called "The Candy Rod". This is surprising to me, as I've never been nominated for a comics-related award. It's unlikely I'll win the award because of the other great stories mine is up against, including:
"Americus", MK Reed and Jon athan Hill, Papercutter #7 (Tugboat Press)
"The Galactic Funnels", Dash Shaw, Mome #11 (Fantagraphics Books)
The Thing About Madeleine, Lilli Carre (self-published)
"The Urn", Chris Wright, Inkweed (Sparkplug Comic Books)

Other pals of mine have been nominated in other categories as well: Lilli Carre, Laura Park, Austin English, Ted May, and David King.
