ROYAL FLUSH Magazine #7 - The Cover!




Last spring, I was approached by Josh Bernstein about doing the cover for the next issue of Royal Flush Magazine. "Of course" I said, "What an honor! Let's do it!" I 've been with RF since just about the beginning. Next May will be the 10 year anniversary of the first issue. Whoa!

The cover was to feature the cast of the TV show "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia". Perfect! (The new season is on Thursdays at 10pm on the FX Channel) I love that show, got into it a couple season ago and have been a big fan ever since. Josh came up with the brilliant concept of lampooning the Nativity scene and I was off and running.

Here it is... THE COV!
It looks even better than I could have imagined in print, real dense & beautiful. There's an embloss on the light beam and all the places where the light hits the cast. Stellar!!!

All in all, I am really very excited to have gotten the cover and to be in such great company with all the talent involved with Royal Flush Magazine. It's a labor of love for all involved, and is going to be on the forefront of creativity for a long, long time.

Many moons ago, I created, wrote and drew a web comic for the SciFi (excuse me, Syfy) Channel. Here are some selected panels and sequences, dusted off for your viewing pleasure.

Oh, check out this music video I put together on youtube a while back that visually
tells the tale in 4 minutes and 21 seconds.
