MY COMICS, MUSIC, AND STUFF

COMICS

My current cartooning project is Ripsaw, a sort of Doonesburyesque look at life in Minneapolis
From 2020 to 2023, I drew a daily cartoon based on the online Iowa City Police Log. There’s a longer writeup here, and Twin Cities Public Television did a feature on the strip.
KP | CIA is an autobio comic about my near-miss with working for the CIA in college.
Devil Track Lake is a short autobio comic about a disastrous camping trip. Don’t worry, the dog winds up being fine.
Nowhere Band is my now-completed strip about the experiences of a band that’s never going to get off the bottom rung of the music-scene ladder. It may be a touch autobiographical. Nowhere Band received favorable writeups from Minnesota Public Radio, City Pages, and MetaFilter.com, among others.The strip got zapped by a combo of hackers and an unfortunate software update in early 2020, so I had to repost it. Fortunately, it’s all back up now, and although the strip ended in 2017, some of the characters have been popping back up in Ripsaw.

MUSIC

The Creekside Ruffians are my current main band. I play guitar and sing; we’re a three-piece postpunk group with a pretty strong Americana flavor. Put another way, we rock the hell out.

Derailleur, a horrifying rock onlsaught from MinneapolisDerailleur is a righteous band in which I play guitar, do some singing, and make weird noises with keyboards and a Kaossilator. To steal a line from myself that I used in Nowhere Band, we sound like either the world’s artiest garage band or the world’s sloppiest art band.
The awesome boys will rock you until you feel pain.The Awesome Boys is who I turn into when I record by myself. Are who? I don’t know. The Awesome Boys are also the protagonists of Nowhere Band. We’re deep in the metafictional weeds here.
