85TH ST APT 05 A & B

I think I brought the futon with me when I moved up from Baltimore to Manhattan. I had a studio apartment in Baltimore. My furniture consisted of my futon couch, a computer desk, a drafting table and a chair that could be wheeled back and forth between the two. My first NY apartment was a...

85TH ST APT 04

This figure and mirror were drawn in 2003 for my thesis project in graduate school. I was exploring how interactive layouts and content-based design could create specific and unique reading experiences in digital comics. My girlfriend at the time modeled for me. In 2015, I cut out the figure and mirror, and glued them to...

85TH ST APT 02

The figure and background elements of this collage were drawn in 2003 for my thesis project in graduate school. I was exploring how interactive layouts and content-based design could create specific and unique reading experiences in digital comics. My girlfriend at the time modeled for me. Back then, coming up with stories to illustrate was...

85TH ST APT 01 A & B

The main image here was drawn in 2003 for my thesis project in graduate school. I was exploring how interactive layouts and content-based design could create specific and unique reading experiences in digital comics. My girlfriend at the time modeled for me in the apartment we shared with my brother and one of his classmates....

SWEET UPS 03 A & B

This is an image that makes me think I had some idea for a story that involved the bar Sweet Ups. I drew the shelves and bottles on location, the bar may or may not have had a television set, and then added my brother, who was wearing my GAP jacket. I’m pretty sure this...

SWEET UPS 02

This image shows what you would first see when you entered Sweet Ups in 2004. The painterly treatment was meant to evoke the interior lighting of the bar while the crosshatching was meant to evoke the daylight coming in through the opened door. I’m not sure if I had a particular story in mind when...

SWEET UPS 01 A & B

I’ve never been much of a drinker. A few times in my life, I’ve tried to find a local bar where I could hangout and meet folks in the neighborhood. Back in 2004, I gravitated to dive bars like Sweet Ups. It was only a few blocks from my apartment at the time, but this...

GAS MASK 03 A & B

For many of my comics, I drew elements of my panels separately and put them together in the computer. This left me with a bunch of random images, some drawn on the same piece of paper. So, in September 2011, I spent a week or two cutting up, gluing and painting a series of collages...

GAS MASK 02

This 2011 collage incorporates various images left over from my college years. The Gas Mask self-portrait was made for a photography class in 1995. The face in the lower righthand corner is a Holocaust Victim. I photographed my television screen while watching a documentary to create a series of images for another class assignment. I...
