The Juggernaut String Band WNTI Stage set on Saturday went well. We even got some time in the air-conditioned van that WNTI was broadcasting out of, and our band leader did an interview with the host.
Here’s another reason to "like" Juggernaut String Band on facebook for more updates and information—aside from our awesome music—half our band is female! Cat Burbage plays drums, bass, and sings (sometimes all at once!) and I play trombone, bass, and sing. Lady power!
Yesterday was a good day for me and comics. Among other events, I hung out with and got a critique from a pro! Of course my work is clumsy next to the portfolio of someone who’s worked in the industry longer than I’ve been alive, but I’m highly inspired and looking for opportunities to practice and apply what I learned. My next steps on the path to improvement are illuminated through his advice, and I’m eager to get working.
Whoops, I arted again on Tuesday! If Rehoboth Beach REALLY wanted me to stop drawing, they would stop lining their tables with paper.
Today you can attend a Juggernaut String Band show from the comfort of your home, car, computer, or workplace. Tune into 91.9 fm or go through the NPR digital network to hear us play the prestigious WNTI Stage festival from 6 to 6:30 pm!
Life drawing from this past Monday, done on the first day of my mini-vacation at Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. I fail at relaxing!
I’m at the beach today, therefore this week’s Watercolor Wednesday is a freckly mermaid.
I’ve heard some horror stories about breaking into professional comics, but my experience illustrating Zombie Power 3: Willie’s Diary for Anne Elizabeth was nothing short of lovely. I’m amazed by my luck in working with such a supportive person!
Months after Project Street Art came to town, people still slow down as they walk past Part I’s 75-foot mural wall. Local Flair Magazine published a page in its last issue recognizing the wall’s beautifying impact on Main Street as well as the skill and love poured into it by every artist who worked on the panels. I was inspired and humbled by The Altar and Main Street Jukebox’s panels towering over me on the day of the event. That feeling of being surrounded and honored by the presence of so many passionate masters of craft continues in the newest issue of Local Flair, featuring its third article about Project Street Art and the mural wall! I have the delight of being among many artists to work on the mural who were featured with blurbs and photos in the magazine.
Project Street Art also has a blog, at projectstreetartblog!

It’s train time! This is an excerpt of the third step from my developing the Juggernaut String Band POWER FOLK album cover. The full inks, including the rest of the track and other train cars (as shown in the pencils) are hanging right now in my featured artist gallery show.
