Hey, while I’m at it, here’s some stuff from Dustship Glory #2. You can still get #1 as a PDF here or a real print comic here.

Avengers Minions! Commission for a librarian friend. (More people should commission me to draw fun stuff like this - hint, hint!)

Reblogging this to let you know you can buy it as a print from me at SaskExpo this weekend!

Oh hi Tumblr. I keep forgetting to post on here. Sorry about that. I still love you, though. Here’s some fragments of my Then It Was Dark story, written by Natalie Leif. This is going to be an amazing book and I can’t wait to see everyone else’s contributions.

So my friend Ed and I went on several road trips this summer. One of these took us to North Battleford, where I was hoping to get pictures of the psychiatric hospital where Tom Sukanen spent his final days (OOOOH SPOILERS - said hospital remains largely unchanged since it was built in the 1900s - at least from the outside). Unfortunately, I didn’t do that, but we did go to the museum, and I collected plenty of other reference there.
On the way back, we came across this old broken down threshing machine by the side of the road. Here’s a picture of me gazing in wonder at it. Can’t you just see this thing re-purposed as an armoured assault vehicle in a steampunk story? I can’t believe no one’s ever done that (or have they…?) You’d have to find some way to incorporate an engine into it, though - the engine was always separate. And just as enormous as the thresher itself. Which was just one reason why you needed at least a dozen people in a threshing crew.
Before threshers, people had to flail grain (i.e. beat it with a stick) to separate it from straw and husks. Which sounds like great fun, for 5 minutes - imagine having to do it all day…
(By the way, I’ll try to have some art up here again soon…I’m drawing like crazy lately, I just can’t show you any of it yet)

Page FOUR of That SPX Thing (it’s actually called “At the Hundredth Meridian” but y’know, I might package it with another short comic and call the entire book “That SPX Thing” - has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?)

Whoa, I could’ve sworn I posted this strip already, but apparently not. SpaceSquatch is owned by the supacool James Zintel. (Click here to read another On the Bus strip featuring SpaceSquatch!)

I am gonna draw a whole bunch of these things in Dustship Glory, just hangin’ out
(this one sort of looks like it could tear me limb from limb, if it felt so inclined)
