Haling from the diminutive State Of Connecticut and now a Citizen of Portland, Oregon, Cascadia, I am currently a "freelance artist" (aka penniless bohemian that occasionally draws.) But don't worry, I have a day job that pays the bills. When you are staying at the HI-Portland Hawthorne Hostel
if you ever come to Portland (and why the hell would you ever visit Portland?) make sure you say "hi".
I've been drawing the mini-comic TEN FOOT RULE in some form or another since 1996 (though the first issue didn't come out until summer of 1997), so I guess that makes me "old-school". I also put out the comic anthology MODERN INDUSTRY (2000-1), edit the ZINESTER'S GUIDE TO PORTLAND,
put out local Portland history/geography zines under the banner of URBAN ADVENTURE LEAGUE
, and have contributed comics, illustrations, and writings to a multitude of zines and independent publications over the years. You can check out my regular bi-monthly comic for MOMENTUM MAGAZINE
, a cool free magazine documenting bicycle culture around the world. I also do a crapload of flyers and illustrations for various projects in Portland and around the world. And I have been a staffer at the INDEPENDENT PUBLISHING RESOURCE CENTER (IPRC)
I like riding my bike aimlessly around the city, bike touring, learning about urban environment, eating burritos, and drinking way too much coffee. I'm REALLY in to community-oriented collaborative type projects. And despite what you may have heard, I don't bite.
You can check out my artwork on my sito page.
Oh yeah, I love zines! And I like trading! And I love actual letters more so than emails and "comment walls". So if you are so inclined, write:
