A labor of love I put together for Madeinwv.com. It’s a celebration of our burgeoning WV Beer community. There really are some fantastic beers being made in the Mountain State, and more people that know about it, the better. My personal favorite? The Halleck Pale Ale from Chestnut Brew Works. The full size version (24x36) is available here.

A while back I made a poster of Ben Franklin’s various ways to describe a drunk person. This is the alternate (and superior I think) version of the originial. Here’s the LARGE imgur version.

Two more dumb tubes comics, and the brain-bending “jesus saves”. Get it? GET IT!?

Some variations on a design I’ve put together for local twangy outlaws, the Bradley Shaw Band. Someone, apparently, shot the sheriff.

Some of my TUBES comics, which are both overly complicated AND poorly executed, with perhaps the worst main character ever. BONUS Rapture Party comic. I’d like to get back into sketching these stupid things out on a regular basis, but hey, these hands be busy. 

sketched a dumb picture for my stupid twitter.

Some drafts for a new project. Teamed up with the amazing Ian Bode for this one. Will post the final product when it’s decided on.

Another older thing I had laying around and felt like throwing some colors on.  A lady and her Sabretooth Tiger. Pretty metal.

For immediate release, free to use to the public. Maybe just let ‘em know who put it together. 

I’ve been wanting to do something about this since it happened, and haven’t been able to get it right, but I think these are pretty much what I was going for. These are less complicated than the preceding ideas, with fewer skulls n’ crossbones. So please, if you care about the issue, and need a way to let someone know about it, feel free to use these. Thank you and keep in mind the West Virginians that don’t have any damn water because of a careless industry that’s been doing the same thing to us for 100’s of years. 

Another couple of older things (newly colorized!) that I did for a shirt design. I’ve seen quite a few of these out in the wild, and The Staggering Cardoons rule.

These North End Tavern & Brewery labels take me forever to get done, and I’m proud of them when they’re finished, but when I see them all together, or out at a bar on a coaster or something, I’m all “Wow, I did that!?”. Cool feeling.
