Pandesoul: The Staff of Life

A Kapwa Komik with my wife. I harvested the words from a draft of the novel she's working on.
8.5 inch x 5.5 inch pages, india ink and colored pencil on handmade paper.

Dishdogs out to make it rich, must be the season of the witch

More woodblock printed covers. Some of the covers I'm keeping simple with just a couple of colors/impressions. Others I'm doing multiple impressions, building up dense layers of color I'm applying the paint to the wood with brushes instead of a brayer, so I'm recording brush strokes.
Restaurant dishwashing is a dirty job, and some of the covers I'm going for a "dishdog's dirty apron" look, especially with some of the "mustard and ketchup' colorings.

One Day In The Life of Ivan Dishdogavitch

I'm almost done with this 12 page mini comic. I just need to carve the woodblock for printing the covers and add the lipstick by hand to the printed copies.

The Moon Was A Drip on Dark Hood

I suppose if I had only one day to mark Zappadan, I'd be drinking hot coffee from a crimped up can on the Beefheart Bummernacht.
