FREE Horror Comic!

Comic book cover page with  skull and sausage links and knife

Who’s that at the door? Is it the Sausage Man? Is he dropping off or picking up? You’d better watch out!

I’m very excited to share this short horror comic with you guys! It feels like it had been in the works forever, but now it’s here, knocking at your door. And it’s totally free to read or download as a PDF.

A quick warning, this comic might not be for everyone, it has some gore and some extremely creepy elements. Definitely not meant for kids!

The story was conceived by Tim Vargulish, he’s a funny dude who makes comics, you should follow him on Twitter.

And while you’re at it, I’m also on Twitter, why not stop by and say hi?

Making A Horror Comic

I’m very excited to share yet another new project that’s been in the works for a while now. I’ve been tasked with drawing a short horror comic by the hilarious and horrifying writer/comedian, Tim Vargulish.

In this latest video I give a little sneak peek of a rough comic book page, the process of setting up a comic page using Clip Studio Paint (which is a breeze, btw) and drawing a finished panel.

If you’re interested in drawing comics yourself, I highly recommend this software.

Aside from that, I’m jazzed to have illustrated the cover for Krampus Tales: A Killer Anthology, which will be available on November 24th! Check it out and maybe get yourself a copy.

Krampus creature steps out of doorway into a dark snowy night with basket on his back.

I’ve also just realized that I haven’t shared anything about my Halloween this year. Despite the nearly apocalyptic conditions, we did enjoy the holiday. I’ll cover it in more detail in my next blog post.

By the way, are you on Twitter? Why not join me for some laughs and whatnot.

Until next time!

Nevermore, Joker

Forgive me if you’ve seen this already, I’m just rearranging some things and cleaning out the closets. Above is a pen and ink piece I made a couple years ago for a Free Comic Book Day event.

I was beating my brains trying to come up with something comics-related that I could offer as a print, and somehow I managed to mash together two of my favorite things.
