Jiu-jitsu, Wine, and Football

What a hodge podge of topics huh? Seems to be the way 2016 has been going lately. Wanted to get in an update to the site before heading to New York for Comic Con. I’ll post an update on how that went after I get  home.

So first up, we have a fun logo I did for local Minneapolis brewery, FULTON. They are doing a cool event at their brewery called BREW-JITSU. Bringing together craft beer and jiu-jitsu in an approachable atmosphere that speaks to both pros and amateurs alike. Check it out here for more info.




The latest issue of The Growler Magazine spotlighted a handful of midwestern experts on the world of modern wine. I supplied a title header illustration as well as a half dozen head shorts for the article.



Last but not least it’s football season! And once again I’ve created a poster of Green Bay Packer Legends that is available for purchase over at CHEESEHEADTV.COM. They still have a small batch of the posters from last year as well, so if you missed out, you can get both!gbpl_2015_web

Comics, Cons, and Commissions

Hey strangers. I didn’t forget about you! Sorry for the radio silence lately. Been working like crazy but just can’t chat about much of it. Also Minnesota summers are filled with so much stuff that it’s hard to find blog time. Got to soak up that sun before Old man Winter returns.

So, where to begin? How about with more comics drawn by me coming from Marvel? That’s always cool right? Had the pleasure of contributing on the last two issue of  The Astonishing Ant-Man. This has been such a fun series. I was a fan before I worked on the Annual last summer, so it’s been a true pleasure getting to contribute here and there when needed. I am doing eighteen pages in issue twelve, out this September, and 23 pages in the final issue in October. Here’s the covers for each issue. TAANTMAN2015013_cov MARVELCoverTemp copy.indt

Con Sketches

Been an interesting time around the old studio. Working a ton but haven’t really been able to show much off. Also I’ve been pretty busy attending some great conventions the past few months. Fans have been keeping my commissions lists plenty full at all these events. I’v mainly been posting those pieces on my social media pages such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr. I haven’t put many here. It’s time to correct that. So here’s some recent sketches and commissions from the last few months of comic conventions.


























Enuff is never Enough

You’ve probably noticed that besides comic books, the most common type of work I’ve been doing lately is beer related. One of those reasons is simple, my wife and I love trying out new craft beer. So much so that we even started a blog about our adventures of parenting and beer tasting called TYKES & TAPROOMS. We try to update it as often as we can. Basically we write about the good things brewery taprooms have to offer from a family perspective.


The Minnesota beer scene is so great that we even have a magazine devoted to the art and craft of brewing called The Growler. I’ve posted some of the work I’ve done for the magazine a few times over the past few years. Recently they did a cover story on the possibly of the Upper Mississippi River returning to it’s wild rapid form of over a century ago, now that the plan is in place to shut down the dam in downtown Minneapolis. This could have an effect on the breweries that use the water for brewing, as well as the landscape that some current breweries reside. I did some illustrations on what could possibly be the future of the river landscape.

Finally, I have another beer label illustration on display through Bent Brewstillery. This one is called ENUFF and it’s a India Pale Ale. I’ve had the pleasure of doing several labels for Bent over the last few years. They’ve been a great client.



My good friend’s over at Surly Brewing got me involved in a really awesome new beer they are producing called #MERICA. Unlike big corporate beers that aren’t even American owned companies anymore, but still think they can brand their mediocre beer as such, this beer celebrates all that is great about the USA. To promote the beer, Surly Art Director, Micheal Berglund asked me to create a character that was a “Historical Badass”. So we developed this ripped George Washington illustration that we think sums up everything we want people to feel while enjoying this beverage. The plan is for this to be a cardboard cut out that will hit liquor stores where everyone can put their head in the cut out and show off your best #Merica face on social media. So if you see one of these in your neighborhood liquor store, be sure to post a pic displaying your true #Merica pride.
