OUT FRONT Magazine – February 2023 issue
This time around, I made a comic with some Valenslimes cards featuring various queers from the teevee.
Besides our Jim from OFMD, you’ll find queers from Interview with the Vampire, A League of Their Own, and Severance. Head on over to the OUT FRONT website to see ‘em all! You’ll find me on page 6.
OUT FRONT Magazine – January 2023 issue
My comic for the January issue of OUT FRONT Magazine offers up some of my predictions for the coming year. You can read the whole thing in the online edition (I’m on page 6). Or, if you’re in Denver, you can grab a free copy at one of their drop locations!
No Straight Lines on PBS
Perhaps you would like to watch a documentary about queer comics? Well, you can now stream No Straight Lines on PBS!
I was interviewed for this film back in 2017 while I was at the Queers & Comics Conference organized by Jennifer Camper and Justin Hall, so yeah, you’ll see me and my work in there!
The film, directed by Vivian Kleiman, shares the same name as the anthology Justin published through Fantagraphics back in 2012, in which I also have some work. The book and the film focus on the last 50-ish years of queer comics history, how we get from utterly marginalized underground indie comics to Alison Bechdel’s bestseller-turned-hit-musical Fun Home.
The film will be available for streaming for the next three months on PBS, so head over and watch at your leisure: https://www.pbs.org/independentlens/documentaries/no-straight-lines/
OUT FRONT Magazine – December 2022 issue
My comic for this issue is all about mutual aid and how it’s especially important for queer and trans folks!

Our Flag Means Death fan art zine
The deed is done! You can now acquire my OFMD fan art zine by way of the internet.
This zine collects most of my fan art creations related to Our Flag Means Death season 1, plus some works inspired by the 2022 OFMD panels at Emerald City Comic Con and C2E2. There are also a couple of What We Do in the Shadows cameos for extra measure.
Content notes: nothing outside the scope of what’s in the show. There’s some swearing, there’s some blood, there’s some risque ribaldry.
16-pages, full color, 5.5″ x 8.5″
Zines are $5.00 each, plus shipping.
OUT FRONT Magazine – November 2022 issue
My comic for this month’s issue of OFM tackles the difference between Gender Affirming Care and Gender Exploratory Care.
Nearly identical sounding names, very different agendas.

OUT FRONT Magazine – Oct 2022 issue – Halloween
The October issue of OUT FRONT Magazine is here, and yes, it features an exclusive interview with Harvey Guillén (a.k.a. Guillermo on What We Do in the Shadows). My comic in this issue is all about bats, which you can read in a Laszlo voice if you like (“BAT!”).
If you’re in the Denver area you can pick up a print copy at one of their drop locations, or you can read online on the OUT FRONT Magazine dot com website. My comic is on page 6!

Our Flag Means Death fan art – Izzy in drag, and digital color practice
For the most part, I’ve just been posting my fan art creations on social media (Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitter specifically), but this one I wanted to show here as a before/after thing, comparing my first ever effort at digital coloring with my most recent. So here’s the just-completed Izzy in Drag piece, line art done in natural media, coloring done in Photoshop:
I would say that’s a bit of an improvement, no? To be fair, I did install a bunch of digital brushes in the intervening 13 years, so I had more texture options for coloring Izzy. Even so, I have learned a lot about flatting and clipping masks and transparency and so forth.
This is all self-taught, by the way. I would love to take a class in digital coloring someday, but it ain’t happened yet.
