I have a new small book titled Sidereal Stills, evolved from this drawing.
It will be available along with my other printworks at the ShortRun Comix and Arts Festival at Seattle Center.
Printed paper Halloween treats will be available for the first 30 trick-or-treating kids at my table.
See you there!
Obey Leash Laws is now officially published. I used Photoshop to color the cover illustration. More information is available here. The public debut of the book will be on Halloween at the ShortRun Festival in Seattle.

I’ve been finalizing the layout for my latest book, Obey Leash Laws. This is one two-page spread. Each page features a collage of sketchbook imagery and an anagram of the title.
We will be attending the Portland Zine Symposium tomorrow, 7/18/2015. For the event I am reprinting a few copies of Manzine, a small artzine I published 25 – 30 years ago.
“Obey Leash Laws” is a forthcoming book, containing anagrams and sketches. There will be 20 pages, 5 x 4 inches, printed digitally. Anticipated release date is August 17.
I don’t remember when I first scribbled this diagram in a sketchbook but I’d probably been reading about transformational rules in formal systems. The diagram’s root is the word ‘stem’.
The three transformational options are:
- add/subtract a single letter to a word
- change a single letter in a word to a different letter
- switch the order of two adjacent letters in a word
Wherever two words are linked by a line in the diagram the rule applied to make the transformation from one word to the other is indicated by a symbol on the line. The idea of two batteries and a ground to power the system is copied from a gift drawn by my nephew.
