“Wrapping up Christmas”

This little comic was my holiday piece for 2008, and it’s also included in my Festive Funnies collection. Wishing you all the best for the holidays ahead!

“Getting back to normal”


While things feel far from normal for me at the moment, at least Watusi’s return to the land of the living is going smoothly!

For those of you who’d like a little peek at my process and plans for my creative work, you can read the compiled results of my reader survey here … and find out how that information will affect my priorities for the year here.

I also have a couple of art events coming up in the next few weeks; if you’re in the Memphis area, I hope you’ll stop in and check them out:

  • The Memphis Arts Collective is hosting a one-day Valentine Extravaganza on February 4 from 10-5 pm at Crosstown Arts (430 N. Cleveland Ave., Memphis, TN). Over 20 MAC members will have special goodies for sale you can share with your loved ones!
  • The opening reception of Nasty Women Memphis, a locally-focused show affiliated with NYC’s Nasty Women art exhibit, is being held at Marshall Arts Gallery in Memphis, February 10 from 6-9 p.m. The show runs February 10-19, 2017.

“I guess you really did miss me!”


That may be the last time anyone throws a party for Watusi! Or at least buys a cake for one…

“The first time”


I can’t tell if the look on my face is me staring at Missus Moses’ hat, or realizing I don’t know what I’ll do without Watusi!

A special thanks to Keith O’Brien, Tom Cherry, and Brien Wayne Powell for allowing their respective characters Samurai Slate, Arlo Wazzo, and Magnet Man to make the trip to Wonder Valley for Watusi’s memorial service. Look for more guests in the weeks to come!

“One sunny day at the cemetery”


More familiar faces– and moments of levity, believe it or not– to come…

“Shades of sadness”


When, oh, when will I stop trying to manipulate your heartstrings? Would you believe next episode?

By the way, this is the first time I’ve actually drawn Kirby’s dad, even though he was mentioned in Kirby’s first co-starring role, the 24-hour comic that was published as Watusi #6, way back in 2003!

“Crank it up!”


… and that fluffy strip brings “Dance party on Barker Avenue” to a close! I had originally conceived this story for Bob Corby’s Oh! Comics music issue, but my move-related matters made meeting its deadline impossible; I was glad to use this style experiment as a way to get it finished.

Next week starts a new long storyline; hope to see you then!

“Working class dog”


Once I remembered this Rick Springfield album cover, I knew just which CD Mr. Johnson would want to play!

“I thought dogs were supposed to have sensitive hearing?”


Let’s hope Wonder Valley doesn’t have a strict noise ordinance!

“Get any 12 CDs for just $1.00!”


Welcome! This month will be a short palette cleanser before we dive into the next long storyline. I’m going to be experimenting a little with the artwork in it, too; check out my Smeary Soapbox Press-ents blog post for a better idea of what I’m aiming at…

(Oh, and in case you missed it, there’s a brand new Watusi digest (#30!) available for your reading pleasure, too!)
