You can buy the book here for $9.99!:…

Sit by the fire now and I shall tell you a story.

Or you can skip to the bottom if you want, but it's been four years since I should have done this, so:

Back in 2004 I started going to UC Davis, a nice public college out in California. They have a student newspaper there by the name of The California Aggie, and with my interest and history in cartooning I knew I just had to submit an idea and be one of the five or so artists that got to publish comic strips in the paper twice a week.

In 2006 I finally got up the courage, and an idea. Semper Terribilis got accepted! Everything was peaches and cream. It was definitely one of the highlights of my time at Davis.

In 2008 I graduated and I compiled two years of comic strips into a book, like several of the other Aggie cartoonists had done before. I sold 20 copies to the UCD Bookstore and upon a repeat visit a year later they had sold out.

Before then, and ever since, people have expressed interest in buying a copy of the book. I sat on it for a long time for various reasons, but better late than never...

You can buy the second edition of the Semper Terribilis book online at at this address:… It's print-on-demand so no worries about running out of copies again! I've included the four most recent strips (only seen here at DA) as well as the other three drawn back in 2006-08 that were never printed. It's only $9.99, and while most of that goes to the printer a little chunk of it goes to me. I'm staring a rather dire financial situation in the face, so every purchase is a great help to me, too.

I still hope to draw more ST strips, most of which will probably make it onto DA, but as my DA gallery winds back for pages and pages and the comics grow more and more dated, the comics collected into the book will start to disappear (but I'll make sure to leave a few favorites behind for posterity).

Hope you're all well and that this piques some interest with those of you who had wanted the book before it sold out.

Do you still like the Who? Because it would be interesting to see you draw Pete and Roger as their modern day variants

hello, I wanna know, can I take your comic history about The Who, paint it, and translate to portuguese?
ps: i don't speak english

I'm sorry, no.

I feel that they are old comics that don't represent me as an artist very well. I would prefer to leave them alone and let them fade away on their own.

I am very flattered by your request, thank you! Sorry to be blunt but I understand we don't speak the same language and I want to be clear that my answer is no.
