STRANGE MAGAZINE


ONE OF SEVERAL ILLOS EXECUTED FOR STRANGE MAGAZINE (STRANGEMAG.COM), EDITED BY THE LATE MARK CHORVINSKY. I INHERITED THE JOB OF ILLUSTRATING THE "FIRST PERSON" COLUMN FROM THE BRILLIANT (AND LATE) OTTO MARTINUSSEN. AS WITH THE WORLD EXPLORER MAGAZINE JOB, I FOUND STRANGE MAG ON THE SHELVES AT THE LOCAL BOOKSTORE AND SAID TO MYSELF, "I WOULD GIVE MY EYE TEETH TO DO ART FOR A PUBLICATION LIKE THIS!"---AND LO, IT BECAME SO. MARK LIKED MY LOOSE, "SKETCHY" INTERPRETATIONS OF THE PARANORMAL. MARK WAS THE MOST SPECIFIC EDITOR I'VE HAD AND REALLY ENJOYED HIS DIRECTION. AND AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE STRANGEMAG.COM SITE, HE HAD A STRONG VISUAL SENSE.
THIS DRAWING IS BASED ON AN EYEWITNESS SIGHTING OF A GIANT WHITE APE IN ARIZONA.

an UPDATE and NEW PROFESSOR WEXLER TOONS

Pardon the seeming vacation 'round here but I've actually been really busy doing the usual and the very unusual!
Do expect the next GRAPHIC NOVEL (no name given yet--due to claim jumpers who havent any original ideas of their own) to be completed in NOVEMBER. And with this expectancy for those interested parties: I'll not be accepting any new ILLO jobs until the mid part of 2009. I don't like saying no---but it is high time to get this bit of modern mythos off my chest.
Im in the middle of a computer upgrade as well so scans will be light for all ye who lurk out yonder.
In the mean time, I refer you to one of my publisher's recently updated pages to view a couple of hundred hours of my life thrown into your lap for FREE:
