Get My Book! :)


"Then This Happened..." Available now on Amazon.
A collection of daily comic journals from May - Aug 2017 about life as my wife battled breast cancer.

Recall.

For a brief moment, I argued with Merijoy that she was at home and I was having to deal with this. It wasn't that though. I think I'm still just jealous that she doesn't have to go a job and I do.

Stats.

I checked them two more times while I was drawing this.

Portraits.

A shoutout to radillustrates who actually did do a butt portrait of us at an event (clothed of course). You can see her stuff at https://www.etsy.com/shop/radillustrates

Loud guy.

He was just enjoying himself. Why was that bugging me?

Gloria.

Pretty much one of the best explanation for a song's lyrics I ever read.

Photo.

It really was obvious now that we look back at it.

Breakfast bar.

I knew I could explain if someone saw me. It was just the thought of someone seeing me taking pictures of my butt that made me laugh.

What to do.

I feel like I check with her to make sure I stayed focused. But she's right, I usually end up doing it.

Mail outs.

It seemed odd asking her to do something that I was going to do. Like it would come off as me saying she had to because she wasn't working. But it made the day that much easier.

Barista.

He eventually figured out he could use his apron to hold them all.

S02 Episode 2: When were you ready to take the leap?

This episode I ask the question:
"When were you ready to take the leap?"

It's one thing to say you want to open your own shop or gallery. But what does it take to go against everything you know and actually do it?

If you create things in your spare time, you've probably thought about trying to do it for a living or maybe you're just trying to get the guts to put it out there for the first time.

So what would it take to follow through and actually do it?

To help understand what it's like, listen to what these local creatives say about what they do.

Here's a list of the places I talk to in each episode.

Eating out.

It's one of the little things that we started doing in the past year just to appreciate life more.

Promega gallery show.

I always feel like an idiot when I meet new people.

Empty.

It was very disorienting and it kind of bugged me that she thought I wasn't listening for some reason.

A moment.

Walked her out.

Even though she quit, it's the act of a group of people walking you out like you're a criminal or something. Some places might throw a going away party for someone to show respect for your time there.

Wheels turning.

I do have a tendency to try and figure out the best way to start a project before I begin it. Guess I didn't know it was that obvious.

Day after test.

I always question things I make the day after it's done.

S02 Episode 1: What made you decide to start your own business?

This episode I ask the question:
"What made you decide to start your own business?"

It's the first episode of the second season. This time I travel around Madison and meet with people that own or operate galleries, stores and other places that sell and promote local art.

Forgot something.

I never noticed how much I swear at myself until I started doing this comic.

Frozen seat belt.

If it wasn't so cold it would have been way funnier at the time.

Gallery Deadline.

I'm friends with the guy at the place so it was all good. He just thought there was more time before it happened. I just thought it was cool I was able to help. This was the episode that my friend heard that he asked about - Sharon Bjyrd

Season 2 Starts This Sunday!

Season 2 of the American Bandito podcast starts January 7, 2018!

This season, I talk with people that own or operate some of the places in town that either display or sell works by local creatives as well as their own. I wanted to find out how they took what they love to do, one step further.

It turned out to be quite an informative journey.

New meeting.

I knew she would do just fine.

Logo ideas.

It was an idea I had in my head at first but once I sketched it out it just looked silly. Trial and error with a few other ideas and I got one I think I like?

New year show.

It was a genuine moment that I'm glad we got to share.
