more material, i illustrated this twice-weekly webcomic. written
by the as-always-ineffable kip.

that puts on multimedia performances combining comics, live
drawing and acting, video projection, and...lots of explosions!

art studio, where he posts his new artwork and comic book
project updates. It's called dreamflux (whose name just happens
to have been coined by yours truly, yay).
photoblog. sure, chicago's cool, but he makes the city look
absolutely breathtaking. i challenge you to find a photographer
with a better eye.

but desperately wish i did.
- my all-time favorite comicbook artist. i hate to jump on the
bandwagon, but it's undeniable that his artwork is visually mesmerizing,
daring, and innovative. the way he fuses images, text, and story
is simply stunning...he achieves a level of quality and originality
that i ultimately aspire to. for more david mack art and information,
- michael whelan has been a primary inspiration of mine since
my tender teens, when i discovered his art on the cover of my
then-favorite book, the Summer Queen, by Joan D. Vinge.
|| i've never met this girl,
but i respect her talent, and even moreso the intelligence
and good heart that shines through her words and work.
JAZZ - i think it would scare this kid
if i told him i used to have a serious crush on his online ego,
if only for his killer design and musical skills. (by design i
refer to the first version of carbonated jazz...which i can't
seem to find anymore...but the second one is pretty cool, too).
||check out this artist for
a lot of fun and quirky illustrations. very clean and spunky
site design, too.
places to go.
hours, but HOURS, of random, fascinating diversions. you can
find all sorts of perceptive, yet soulful, multimedia eccentricities
here. i worship this site.

and delicious webcomic that got me into webcomicdom. the older
strips are the best. i mean, god putting on puppet shows!
think about it. god. with puppets.

made short film project. the site offers lots of cool movie
snippets, concept art, and other peeks into the creative work
process....something which particularly appeals to me...

collection of graphic designs and musings.
