Strips. books and a dog drawing

I have been making strips for the Columbia Chronicle's Free Ice Cream comic section. The strip above is currently printed in this weeks paper.

So if you find yourself in the South Loop or around a Columbia building get the Chronicle it has my strip in it as well as other fantastic strips.

Doing these strips has been a lot of fun but also challenging.
I want to upload a photo of the books that have been inspiring me at the moment for this project.

I recently got the Nancy book and it is a fantastic read that I have been picking up and laughing while taking short breaks from the drawing table. I am also reading the complete collected work of Kevin Budniks OEILR. I got this fat little book from Kevin and have found the way he splits scenes, conversations and observations into four panels to be truly inspiring and a great motivator for making my strips.

 Other than that my day to day job is taking the majority of my day, although I have been drawing every day and am penciling the content for Dirty Hands Vol. 3! Lets just say that this next issue will have more interior drawings.

I also made this dog drawing, used an old stuffed dog toy ad from the 1800's as inspiration.

That is all.
