I have to start by thanking Scott Kurtz for his kind words over at PVPonline. He’s got a great comic and even more important, he’s a great guy. We’ve run into each other at Comicons and he’s always been super generous to me, but he’s been giving me fine advice on how to make my [...]

My hands are all krinked up having inked four pages yesterday. At the same time, these are some of the funnest pages I’ve ever had the pleasure of working on. Next month I’ll get into some more of the process on how these pages are made. I just penciled one of my favorite all-time panels [...]
Upper right hand panel, my favorite drawing in Ratfist so far. And look at that key! It’s really something, huh? If only I could tell you what it is. I can’t. I barely even know myself. It bugs me though, whatever it is. Now I can’t sleep.
Mystery solved! My pal SKOTTIE YOUNG sent me the name of that cool Japanese brush pen I used to ink yesterday’s episode and it’s called a Kuratake! He’s used it for years and swears by it. It’s available here: Kuretake Fountain Brush Pens Now excuse me while I get back to my much-neglected drawing board!
I have a confession to make. A lot of yesterday’s page wasn’t done with a Japanese horse hair brush. That should be obvious given some of the more refined lines I’ll pulling this week. What happened? I went on vacation. I visited my parents and brother in Colorado. My brother is a coal miner, which [...]
We had a great weekend! RATFIST was featured at one of my favorite pop culture websites io9: Earthworm Jim creator brings rat-powered superhero to webcomics But on to our one-eared hero. A lot of you have been wondering just what kind of woman would date Ricky, much less be in the running for marriage. I’d [...]
I’m going to trademark that saying, “You got chumped, chump!” In a few years from now, when the President of the United States says, “You got chumped!” you’ll know where it came from. That saying is my cultural legacy to the world. Here are the rules of the phrase: 1. You may use the phrase [...]
The dog security guard reminds me a lot of The Island of Dr. Moreau. When I was a kid, the 1977 film adaptation came out and I was mesmerized. It featured great animal make up and I remember looking at my Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine studying each creature from the film. H.G. Wells is [...]
“…for I have come to bury Caesar, not to praise him!” It was going to be that or a Van Gogh reference. If yesterday’s blog post made you think I was above making cultural references, I’m not. But quoting Shakespeare has little more longevity and portents than “DON’T TAZE ME BRO’!” But the main thing [...]
If I wanted to just lazily reference my culture instead of come up with something witty and interesting I’d say “DON’T TAZE ME BRO’!” right about now. There are some things I regret having in my mind, and that saying is one of them. My contribution to culture is Ratfist. Perhaps one day we’ll wince [...]
