Happy Independence Day!

(Jul 04, 2010)

Happy Birthday, America! Here’s a little audio clip Jason captured years ago that sums up the matter quite nicely.

A special 4th of July message from BPB!

Bonus points if you can figure out where it’s from.

This year’s Finder magazine the WW publishes came out this week. Jen and I hit up the release party a little too late for the free grub, but got some free beer that unfortunately made us feel weird the rest of the night. It wasn’t a bad time, though – I finally got to meet the esteemed Ben Mollica, the art director for the WW who is kind enough to send me the work he does, and I also got to see Tom Humphreys again, a former WW art director who got me started doing illustration for them.

Anyhow, it’s a great resource for anyone in Portland, whether you’ve been here six year or are just visiting for a week. It has recommendations and locations of most of the good restaurants and things to do around town. Plus it’s FREE! Go pick one up!

Here’s my spread in print:

And here’s the illustration I did for the paper this week for this article:

I’m still busy doing behind-the-scenes stuff for Save Apathea, but if all goes according to plan, we should have it up in a couple of weeks. You’ll hear about it here first!

Have a good 4th, everyone!

  1. When you finish this big time graphic novel….Will there be anymore One of the Johns comics? Cool illustrations brother.

  2. It’s still up in the air what I want to do next. Part of me feels like I’ve been sitting on One of the Johns for too long, that I’ve passed the point where I should’ve already drawing it. But I haven’t really been able to come up with any other ideas in the months since finishing the first draft of Americus, so who knows…
