DRIVE will be starting back up again in early September

I have a plan to get rid of the schedule interruptions for DRIVE: Patreon.

As you know, DRIVE continually takes in on the chin, schedule-wise. I love this story so much -- it's my favorite among all my projects -- but it's not really income-earning. So, in the real world of making a living, it takes a back seat to Sheldon and Stripped. But with Patreon, you could genuinely become a patron of the strip. It's a win-win: I'll be able to block out the time the strip deserves, and you'll be getting more and better updates as a result. More details on that in the weeks ahead when I launch the Patreon page: I've gotta record the ol' Patreon video, first!

For the FIRST TIME EVER, I'm coming to Salt Lake City, giving out free sketches at the huge new Comic Con, Sept 4-6! I'll of course be bringing all the Drive books, Sheldon books, and the Stripped DVDs and posters. But what I'm really bringing? ...Is friendship.

I know there's a lot of Drive readers in and around SLC, so I really really want to ask you to come out! This would be a fun show to come back to year after year, and you can make that happen! Vote with your feet and come say hi! (To sweeten the pot, there's a FREE SCREENING of my film Stripped for all SLCC attendees, on Saturday at noon.)

Get your convention pass now, and see you in SLC!

Thank you!

With thanks to all the folks who helped bid up the art, with thanks to our winning bidder Wil Shipley, and with thanks to our matching donor Gary Tyrrell, we were able to raise $1,560 toward Parkinson's research. It's a very nice thing to do to honor Richard Thompson, and I thank you all: You guys are awesome.

And! If, like me, you are awed and humbled and very entertained by Richard's strip Cul de Sac, consider pledging a few bucks towards Parkinson's research as well. It's a good thing to do..in honor of a great cartoonist.

Watercolor for Parkinson's

Wednesday, June 25, 2014 - 04:44 PM

I’ve been thinking a lot about the brilliant and hilarious cartoonist Richard Thompson, who’s career was robbed by Parkinson’s. His strip Cul de Sac is amazing, with such a unique writing style and energetic, scratchy line.

So! I made this DRIVE watercolor specifically for eBay. It's the first full-cast watercolor I've ever done for DRIVE. And here's the kicker: Whatever it raises, I’m gonna double to give to Parkinson’s research under the Team Cul de Sac banner.
