Thanks to AskMeFi I put a bowl of fruit on it and sold a piano on Craigslist. The buyer ended up composing an amazing song with it for my podcast. After 28 episodes of Man Afraid of Everything (from hailing a taxi to doing improv for a year) I’m excited to share this new workbook inspired by the show. Write, draw, and trash your way through a series of challenges designed to expand your comfort zone. [more inside]
The drawing program that I use automatically records my strokes and spits out a time-lapse video at the end. My composer friend asked me to do a drawing set to one of his songs. So I came up with different line styles and onomatopoeic words to represent the different movements in the song, and roughly timed out my blocks of drawing activity so that we'd be able to (somewhat) sync up the resulting video with the music. More of my drawings here. More of my friend's music here.

A short, illustrated guide to things you can do to make the world better and take care of yourself now that Everything Is Terrible. I created it as a way to get myself out of a deep politics-related funk earlier this month.
I've been gathering up some of my sketches (mostly markers and some digital) from past years and organizing them into stickers for iOS Messenger because they seem well-suited to this medium. So far I have a set of random creatures, a set of aliens/robots and a set of ocean-inspired life.
a student-made painting app in the tradition of Kid Pix: one that embraces chaos, randomness and amateurism instead of pixel perfection. All brushes in this app were created by students at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in the 'New Media Crash Course', Spring 2016 (don't worry, not really NSFW) [more inside]
For the year of 2015, I and my friend Sheala drew our butts off. The premise was simple. Every two weeks we'd start a new theme and draw/sketch based off said theme. Except for Saturdays, because everyone needs a break. At the linked page, you can find a complete list of the themes, along with links to the images and a short Exit Interview as we discuss what we learned and experienced.
A short comic strip meditation connecting seemingly disparate events that occurred on trains this summer - refugees, heroism, racism etc. - and how they were widely portrayed in the media.
I've been drawing and posting comics for a while, and I finally had enough decent material to make a book out of it. It's 26 pages worth of autobiography, dreams, and musings on the culture I live in. You can download the book (a pdf) for a buck fifty from my Gumroad page, or you can go to my Tumblr and poke around in my archive to see most of the stories included.
R U WIZARDPUNK - I drew a cartoon for The Nib about possible new trends.

Were making comic books! But more importantly, for here, a comedy companion blog to hone our skills. Follow as Daniel takes his work more seriously, and Ken takes his less seriously.

I am drawing all of the US presidents as birds, or maybe vice versa? Bird Presidents, in any case. I'm doing about one a day and drawing them in order.
blindsketch is a little drawing game for desktop and iOS devices (Android users proceed with caution) where you draw without looking. Use your mind's eye to render a complex and beautiful masterpiece, or just sketch a little doodle, but either way, you can only see your drawing when you are finished. Choose free draw or take the daily drawing challenge if you're feeling competitive. Today's challenge is a video challenge. (note that the images in the gallery section are not censored in any way, and that yesterday's drawing challenge was "NSFW", just so all the jokers can get the inevitable phallus drawing out of their system.)
I made myself laugh really hard a couple of days ago trying to draw a self-portrait, so on Cortex's suggestion I am going to do (at least) one drawing of myself a day until I die or become disinterested.
I just finished a freehand ink pen drawing on a 70x100cm paper. I've been working on it for 5 weeks, 143 hours in total.

In commemoration of the opening of my Soho art show Hidden Spaces I am posting my new website. My art is comprised of graphite and monochrome color pencil works transcribed and augmented from microscopic organic forms. For further elaboration see my artist statement on my site.
Inspired, of course, by Lynda Barry, I'm doodling 100 of my personal demons.
