Dirty love
Say it loud 
Scream for me
Break the skin…

Memories of my melancholy whores

I realize the irony of sharing this on social media, but I really enjoyed this. Now I’m signing off!

While I’m not really up to the challenge — it takes me forever just to arrange some book spines — maybe some of you are…

Just finished working on a new print that I’ll have with me at cons this year. I’d been posting the process pics on Facebook, and a surprisingly low amount of people recognized that the image was a throwback, so I’ve included the reference image along with it here.
Hope you guys dig it!
Oh, and my convention schedule can be seen here!

EDIT: I removed the image of JL8 #15 and made it a link. I like showing the new illustration on its own.

Must. Own.This.

I spent 20 minutes standing in front of this head. I have never had such a visceral reaction to a piece of artwork before in my life. I was overcome by such a feeling of calm that I can’t quite describe.

Kiss From a Stranger Saves a Suicidal Man
 In Shenzhen, Guangdong, China, a sixteen-year-old boy was standing on a bridge, threatening to jump off and end his life. Hundreds of onlookers watched in horror as he refused to cross back onto the safe side of the guardrail. Police had arrived and were talking to the boy, but no one could get through to him. Just then, Liu Wenxiu, a nineteen-year-old hotel waitress, was walking home from work when she saw the boy and knew that she had to do something to help him. Wenxiu had once been suicidal herself, so she knew how the boy felt. Telling police that she was his girlfriend, the girl managed to get close enough to talk to the boy. She shared her own sad and difficult life story, listened to his, and showed him the scar on her wrist from where she had tried to commit suicide herself.  “He said he’s hopeless, ‘so don’t waste your time to save me’. But I told him, ‘I’m not saving your life, I just want you to realize how silly you are being. Look at me, I’ve been there and I’m now here,’” Wenxiu said. Finally, the girl was able to lean in and give him a hug, and then she unexpectedly gave him a kiss, as well. Police were then able to take the knife that the boy was holding and lead him back over to the safe side of the bridge.

I could not ignore this. 

no one could
