Poor Hestia, the least developed of the Olympians. Despite being extremely important in cult and ancient everyday life, she had virtually no presence in myth or art, which has lead to her being the most overlooked member of the pantheon in the modern day. As a goddess of the hearth and fire, I chose to depict her as a barely humanoid being of living flame, as a nod to her barely-personified role in myth.

As an aside, I drew this whole piece up in about, no lie, 5 minutes. I was actually going to scrap it until a couple of my studio-mates, with no prodding from me, came up and told me how much they liked this drawing, left on my drafting table, in particular. I guess I was too close to see its merits.

Preview of


A cool feature on the upcoming tons of downloadable masks! With little dramas from the books for classrooms to act out! Or for you and your buddies to reenact the Trojan War with on the front lawn! Pictured are Ares, God of War, and Hephaistos, God of Fire.

Well, Duh

from Newsarama, an article about a new study that found that comic books are legitimate kids literature. In my opinion, very cool news indeed.

I was pretty happy with this portrait I drew of the goddess Demeter for the website, and thought I'd share. Like Aphrodite, it took a little while for my conception of Demeter to congeal-- not until I drew the cover for Hades, in fact. I think I have the hang of her now.

I can't say I've had the courage to listen to this in it's entirety (like almost everyone, the sound of my own recorded voice is anathema to me), but interested parties can listen to my interview with Robin McConnell at

Come see me at the King Con Brooklyn!

I will be appearing on the Graphic NYC panel this Saturday, November 7th, at 3pm at the King Con Brooklyn in the Brooklyn Lyceum. Graphic NYC is a photographic project by messrs Seth Kushner (pictures) and Chris Irving (words) detailing our city's wonderful collection of comic artists. Joining me on the panel will be the lovely Christine Norrie, the legendary Peter Kuper and uber-talented studio-mate Beckminster Cloonan.

This is the first King Con so show some Brooklyn love and come on down! And in honor of what is surely my most-linkedy post ever, here is a photo of a dog dressed up as Wonder Woman.
