Halloween Trouble – 8 page comic book to download


For Halloween I wrote and drew a short 8 page minicomic to give away at trick or treating. Ginger Landers edited and distributed it while Batgirl and I gathered candy!

Anyway, if anyone would like to just read the comic here is a reading PDF.

If anyone would like to try to print off their own – download the collate-able PDF version.
Print page 1 of the PDF with page 3 of the PDF on the back of that sheet of paper. Then print page 2 of the PDF with page 4 o the PDF on the back. side. Order them with the comic page numbers printed on the 4 sheets (the comics pages are numbered 1-8) and fold them all in half, staple if you’ve got one and you’ve got a unique Halloween giveaway!

– OK, I realize printing out the collate-able comic probably sounds a little confusing, but here is what I recommend doing and it should work for most desktop printers. Download the collate-able PDF version. Print pages 1, and 2 of the PDF. when the 2 sheets come out of the printer flip the order in which they lie. Top sheet to bottom, bottom sheet to top. (Do not spin them, do not flip them upside down.) Then put the 2 sheet back into the printer as they are now. Then print pages 3-4. They will come out printed correctly and you just fold the sheets in half. Good luck!

A Fifty Year History of Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation – book design


A Fifty Year History of Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation, as the title suggests, is a book about the entire 50 year history of the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation. It is authored by Dr. Joseph Mazza, with input from Dr. Barbara Lee and librarian Alana Ziaya who collaborated to create the 52 page book. With direction from the rest of the Creative Services group and from the writing and research team, I designed the book and helped make both softcover and Kindle versions available to the public on . There is great photography in the book from years of research, education, medical innovation, farm medicine and more at the Marshfield Clinic.  Some revolutionary inventions and discoveries in the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation are documented in the book as well. I’m proud to be a part of this book team and pleased to see how well it is being received.

“This is a great resource for honoring Marshfield’s first medical scientists and celebrating our accomplishments,” Dr. Lee said. “We also want to inspire our current investigators, and use the history for recruiting the next generation of scientists here at Marshfield Clinic.”

Lost & Found Animals – short film


My 9 year daughter and I made a short 7 minute film recently called Lost & Found Animals. She wrote it, and we both starred and acted in this fun, funny movie. We shot it on an iPad Mini and edited it in Photoshop.

Family has described it, “Like Toy Story, but better…” work mates have said, “Your daughter is adorable!”

A link to the movie on Youtube is here

John Jackson Miller, Overdraft – Cover design


I worked with author John Jackson Miller for several years at Krause Publications on the late Comics Buyer’s Guide magazine where he was an editor for many years. John went on to write several comic books (Iron Man, Simpson’s, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Mass Effect, Indiana Jones, etc.) as well as many novels. He recently wrote a prequel to his ongoing sci-fi Overdraft series story called Human Error that I helped design the cover for (above). Much of the trade dress design was already established and much of the imagery was chosen, but I enjoyed doing the color correcting (it was eventually adjusted) , layout, and typography on this cover – and it was great working with John again.

You can see more about John’s Overdraft series here.

And you can see his best seller Kenobi, Star Wars novel here.

And a link to John’s blog is here.

Wisconsin Military and Civil Medals – book design

Wisconsin Military and Civil Medals

I was given an opportunity to layout and design the Wisconsin Military and Civil Medals book by the renowned coin and medals collector and editor Fred J. Borgmann. It’s a 176 page, full color book that is comb-bound so it can be left open flat for greater ease in identifying. There is really no other book of it’s kind like it. It’s interesting to see all the different, incredibly detailed medals as well as reading the Wisconsin cities and towns (Edgerton, Wauwatosa, Cadott, etc.) that issue them. There is an incredible amount of research and information that went into this book and I am proud to be a part of it.

Email for more information and about ordering it.

Upcoming project – Hunting and fishing stories – sketch

I’ve gradually been working on a great project with my dad collecting his many hunting and fishing stories. I’m doing several spot illustrations for a book we’re putting together; reading, sketching, editing, and layout. He’s had a lot of great input from various editors (Kristin Beebe, Bob Witczak, Ginger Landers, Kathy Williams etc.) and I’m really excited to see where this goes. Here is an unfinished sketch that may go with one of the stories — and DO NOT hold a real gun this way!

There will be more on this project in the future.
