Well, another year and I’ve got another sketchbook to show for it. I don’t know if you got a chance to see the previous sketchbook 1, sketchbook 2, or the illustrations I did for the global investment project, or the illustrations I created to accompany my short story, “The Change“, or the tarot cards that we created for Tina’s birthday. If you didn’t, have a look. Anyway, enjoy these sketches too. The photos didn’t come out so well so I might try again when I have more time. Read more
I wrote Temptation Behind a Trucker’s T in high school too, based on a neighborhood in New Jersey where I spent my elementary school years. While the plot may be pretty trite, it provides a pretty solid description of growing up in the mid-80s in suburban America.

Yetis vs. Trolls is actually one of three children’s stories that are incorporated into The Complex. At different times in the novel, different storytellers tell fables about their long-lost ancestors to teach lessons to each other. I was hoping, at some point, to bring these stories together into an anthology and publish it as a fully-illustrated set of children’s fables. That will probably have to wait, I’m sure, until I find the time to tackle the illustration…or maybe I’ll just bug Linc to do it…
Old Michigan’s landmasses are split by the swirling Grander Rapids, protecting the peninsulas from their state-sharing neighbors.
