Copied from an old etching of the constellation Gemini. I’m sorry, I don’t have the orignal. Other than changing the sex and hairstyle of the figures, I copied the position of the bodies and stars exactly. It’s funny how much that changes it.
Samson and the Lion, drawn from this statue at the Art Institue of Chicago.
Cover design for the 2013 issue of Bluestem! Bluestem, formerly KARAMU, has been published since 1966 and is produced by the English Department at Eastern Illinois University. KARAMU has won several awards from the Illinois Arts Council. It is a wonderful book of poems, short stories, and for the first time this issue, a comic!

Sneak peak of my new short comic Pika? The comic will be four pages long and is all about squirrels that have been genetically modified into actual electrically conductive Pikachus, which of course, go all Jurassic Park on America. Anyway, COMING SOON.
