Howdy folks! It's time again for the Great Minnesota Get Together, the
Minnesota State Fair! I have two prints hanging in the brewer's guild hall, and during the 10 day duration of the Fair I will
have them specially priced in the DWITT Market for only $20 each! Click on the image to go directly to their spot in the shop.
I also have a comic strip featured in the annual Comix Issue of
the City Pages. You can see all of this year's published comics here. For those of you who are patrons of my work through my Patreon account, you saw my comic two weeks ago. For just $1 a month
you get to see work before its printed, exclusive patron only content, and the satisfaction of helping me to keep the comics

Become A Patron
10:40 pm est
Greetings everyone. I've started a Patreon account to see if I can begin making my DWITT Dailys comics a legitimate job for me instead of a passion project that pays no returns. For just $1 a month you will get access
to Patron only comics as well as the assurance that you'll continue to get regular comics from me. At the $5 and up level
you'll also get behind the scenes sketches and thought processes on my work plus input on future comics, and at $10 a month
you'll get to own some of those original sketches and drawings.
Patreon is a new platform for me and I will continue to develop it so I can make it as rich an
experience as I can for those of you willing to offer up monthly support for my work. On top of my other comic book projects
and teaching job, I'm gonna make a go of being a full-on comic book artist this year and into the future. The freelance game
is wearing me down.
Become one of my patrons right here!

I made a comic yesterday on my DWITT Dailys blog to vent my frustrations with the new administration and the new unhinged leader of the free world. I was not alone in
this feeling and the cartoon went viral and MILLIONS of people have seen, shared, liked, and agreed with my work. It's been
an overwhleming experience.
prints of the cartoon, and you can buy one here in the DWITT Market. I'm donating 20% of all sales to two different entities. Half will go to the source of my, and many's, inspiration, The
National Park Service. The other half of the 20% goes to the ACLU who fight for all of our right to say what we want to say,
no matter how the powerful may feel about trying to silence us.

Stuff I Like
Many years ago I started making these 'Stuff I Like' prints, tiny little prints
featuring my Beanbug characters with an item or activity I personally enjoy. They were popular and they sold out, but then
I didn't make any more or reprint any. Dumb. They are coming back in 2017, better than ever with a whole lot more of them
than the original batch. The first two to get produced are Avocado and Rice, and you can buy them right now in my Etsy shop, where ALL of the Stuff I Like prints will be available. Cheers and Happy New Year!

In 2016 I've created one gigposter, and it was for the mighty Dinosaur Jr's show at First Ave last Friday. It was
a sold out concert, and the posters they commissioned sold out during the show. Fortunately I got permission from the band
to print copies for myself to sell and they will hit the DWITT Market this Friday, October 14th.

Prints of Threes #2
12:19 am edt
At long last I am printing again!
is 'Future Mind', the second print in my Prints of Three's series. It's based off of a drawing that is in my 'Portrait' series
style, where I start drawing without any preconceived idea of what the drawing will look like, and figure it out as go, so
its meaning is open to your own interpretation.
print measures 18 x 24 inches, is 4 colors on 100 lb poptone paper from French Paper company, and is part of a signed and
numbered edition of ONLY 33 prints.
This print is ONLY available for 30 days, and if after that time any prints are still remaining they go into the

Well... time flies when you're a parent. Here's a long overdue update.
Back in May, I created this print for the annual Posters and Pints show. It's
printed with 4 colors and looks like a lot more. I've very pleased with how it turned out. This was also the last print I
have made, so a layer of dust is building up upon my printing gear. I hope to get back to it soon, but trying to find time
even to draw these days is difficult.
You can pick up a copy
of this fine print RIGHT HERE.

My Last St Paul Art Crawl
10:16 am edt
Sad to say this, but this spring's St Paul Art Crawl will be my last one
in the JAX building. The building got bought and will be renovated, so I am losing my studio. That news should not, however,
dampen this spirits of this Crawl. Jeff and I have completed another collaborative art print titled, 'Queen of the North'.
It is a companion piece to our last collab, "King of the North'. When you visit out studio, #411 in the JAX building,
during the Art Crawl this weekend, purchasing this print (a mere $30 for a 4 color, 11x14, signed and numbered ready to frame
screenprint -the b/w version pictured below-) will enter you into a drawing to win Jeff's original pencils or my original
inks. The Art Crawl is Friday April 22nd 6-10pm, Sat April 23rd from noon-8pm, and Sunday April 24th from noon-5pm. Help us
send off our studio space. Cheers!
