So I updated my Artmoney account with 15 pieces today. They are little exploratory pieces that I do at the kitchen table when I have an hour or two, or if I’m just stuck on a piece for that book I’d intended to be done with last summer.
Artmoney is a project that I heard about years ago, but never got around to signing up for until recently. It allows artists to produce their own money, all to a set format and value, which are accepted as currency in a few select shops worldwide, as well as sold on the artmoney website. Since my no-silos policy prevent me from using funding sites like Kickstarter, this humble, offbeat initiative is a tolerable compromise between making a bit of money and signing up for an external service.
Do check out all the artmoney – I mean mine, of course, “all my artmonies”! – and support the arts, one homemade note at at time!

Intro In the past, I've been less than forthcoming toward those who see relationships between comics and cinema, and while I still claim there are more differences than similarities, there is no denying that distinct art forms may thrive or at least play at each others' formalities. Hold on, hold on – I'll be more…
I made something while I was waking up this morning. It kind of tumbled around my head and fell out into the morning coffee in an unexpected combination, so I thought it best to get it online before the conscious mind (aka the Person from Porlock) ruins it. Guilty pleasures first, I've been fascinated by…
I have a series of abstract comics called "Unboxed, regifted" in Dave Crane's electronic anthology Panelalia
Spotted on a parking automat, I see three possible interpretations of this glyph: 1. An asterisk coupled with an equation sign (perhaps meaning that the solution to a question in the main text is hidden away in a footnote) 2. The K and the E are comfortable enough in their relation to share a bed…
