Good morning- I  am sorry that it’s almost mid-day and this update hasn’t gotten up. We just got back from a FANTASTIC Emerald City Comic Con show. It was incredible. I am though glad to be home and this update would have been sooner had it not been for the flight delay last night. We […]

Sometimes… one just needs to enjoy the scenery. Wondercon is now completed and the adventures move on. My next adventure is the LA Book Fair. Wondercon was wonderful and I am  very tired but extremely happy – I really enjoyed the wonderful spirit of the show and how things turned out. There were laughs, smiles […]

Today’s update-  – well since i am coloring the comic from here on out- i need to start to going backwards as well to make sure this new chapter is in full color. It is a little bit of work – but in the end it is sooooo worth it. I’ll be updating these pages […]

Good afternoon- First off I bet you notice something different…. Well I would like to talk about the direction of the Bean, and one of the hardest choices I have ever had to face about my comic. I got back from 2 Huge comic shows in a 10 day period. I am little tired, but […]

See – i am not lying… it was not an april fools joke… Bean is really going to color. Right now I am coloring from both ends of the story:) Which is going to take a lot of work. Yet at the end of the day it will be worth it. In fact because of […]

Ever moving forward – and I am excited about how the color is adding so much more of a mood to the story. It is giving it such a more cinematic feel to it. So what’s  going on with  this adventure…. Well I did some major changes to my Patreon campaign. It’s now only a […]

The Bean 646

I was sitting here looking at the title of the comic and realized that I have drawn over 646 pages of one story. I don’t plan to stop either. I am in awe over how this story has evolved and how I have grown as human being because of it. A tale of dishwasher, who […]

Good morning – or good day- depending on where you at. Today’s update is all about trust… or who do you trust? We are also moving into the new month of our patreon campaign. A great way to support comics or other art projects. There is no obligations but there are some perks. In fact […]

This weeks update throws us deeper into the world of Culver’s Gulch.  So curious on people’s feelings about the color work at the moment. It’s been about a month since we changed the comic from b/w to color. The transition has involved more work but I feel that it has really added to the story. […]

Today is update 650. Can you believe it- 650 updates … wow…. wow. The saga just keeps growing and  as I look back I am enjoying the growth and maturity in my art. It’s an interesting journey looking back over ones work for the last several years and seeing where it is going.  

Good morning – Enjoy today’s update, it has been fun working on these pages and many more are to come.  Nothing like a bit of intrigue to start the morning. So today is question and answer day… you can ask me almost anything about the comic and I will be more than willing to answer… […]

Building an epic… I am amazed on how much work goes into building an epic. I am on page 659 and we are almost done with chapter 17. Then onto chapter 18. Much has happened with our young dishwasher and I am pretty excited about where this adventure is going. There is also a lot […]

Good morning- sorry I am a little late today. I got in really late from the tucson comic con last night and what an incredible trip that was. I love the small to mid size cons, I love the big shows as well, but those small shows really allow me to chat and talk with […]

The dark truth comes out. Legends and myths becoming reality… or are they. I guess learning one’s personal history can be pretty rough or exciting depending on how you look at it. This week will be wild- i will be at FAN FEST in phoenix this weekend- free sketches for everyone and i will be […]

Good morning. Back from fan fest and i am tired, but in a good mood. The show was fun and it was nice seeing family and friends again. Shout out to the phoenix crew, who put that together. It’s also nice to be back, with some open time for the next several weeks. I am […]
