Art School Modeling

I was recently contracted by a group of local artists that meet at an art school in South Pittsburgh. Last night was my first evening of modeling for their life drawing session. They’re an incredibly nice bunch of patient folks. We worked for 2 hours. I did only two long 45-minute poses, getting breaks as […] Read more…

Superhero Fundraising

For the past few years it has been my honor to be the New Jersey Wonder Woman at Comic Fusion in Flemington. Stacy Korn and I spend the entire year soliciting donations from artists, writers and publishers to raise money for S.A.F.E. in Hunterdon which provides invaluable services for domestic violence survivors. Read more…

May Dr. Sketchys in Pittsburgh

This isn’t about your typical charity fundraiser. It’s not one of those tax-deductible sort of things. However, it would mean a lot to folks involved including myself. I’m the spokesmodel for the Guns of Shadow Valley comic book which is online and completely free at gunsofshadowvalley.com. The comic is the blood, sweat and tears of […] Read more…

Update on the Technology Issues & News

Thank you for your patience as I lose more of my sanity trying to rebuild my computer. The good news is my files were recovered; the bad news is not all the files are cooperating and able to be opened. Vista has files in directories; I move them but they don’t move to where I […] Read more…

System Failure!

My computer was attacked rather badly last night. At least three malware programs infected it down through the registry. I thought Vista + a reputable antivirus protected me against such things but I have lost everything! Every file. Every review. Every photo. Every video. I have some things on cd and very few things on […] Read more…

The ladies’ […] Read more…

Etsy Sale

My etsy shop has been neglected for several months but I’d like to draw attention to my crazy version of Harley Quinn. I need to attend the Comic Con International in San Diego this year so that I can be the +1 of Dave Wachter whose comic, the Guns of Shadow Valley has been nominated […] Read more…

I <3 Kirby Krackle

Death Rays. Robots. Superheroes. Girls. Wii. These are the subjects within the songs of KIRBY KRACKLE. This is a talented band that won my heart the first time I heard them on Comic Geek Speak. Read more…

BTS with Jay Fife

It was my absolute pleasure to pose for one of my favorite artists yesterday, Mr. Jay Fife. Jay hails from Ohio and brings fans of pop culture a unique portrayal of characters. His work is primarily but not exclusively that style branded as “pin up art.” Jay is also working on his first independent comic, […] Read more…

NY Times article – Gay Superhero Parties

George Gene Gustines wrote a New York Times article about the gay superhero fetish party scene. Read it online: “DIM lighting. Rendezvous-friendly nooks. Muscled bartenders. Pulsating dance music. At first glance, it could be any Saturday night in any gay bar in New York. But then you notice, off to one corner, Superman flirting with […] Read more…
