Detective Jack Valentine Jones

They say that JV Jones is one bad motha...

Some Venture Shenanigans

Two of my favorite scenes I got to do on "My Dinner With Hatred" or "Home Is Where The Hate Is" according to iTunes for some reason...anywho, the intro with Hank and Dean:

And the Moppets chasing down Hank, Dean, 21 and 24

Velcommen to Zee Grinder!

Hello all! Check out the new digs! Nothing too fancy since I'm less than knowledgeable in even the most basic HTML. But for now, this will do! Ham and Eggs (Or The Slightly Askew Adventures of Inspector Ham & Eggs) is up to page 8 of Issue 2! We recently made our first return back to Baron Von Blackforest's HQ, Zee Grinder since page 7 of Issue 1! In celebration of this, and the revamped blog, I bring you (in glorious techni-black and white) The first and second appearances of The Baron and his submarine of dastardlyness!

Issue 2

Thursday, June 19, 2008


Well it's been a while, hasn't it? yes, I think it has! Things have been trucking along with "The Slightly Askew Adventures of Inspector Ham and Eggs"! We are still posting every Tuesday and Thursday and are currently up to issue 2, page 6. Exciting! I know I know, blah blah blah less talk more art, right? So be it!

First up is a pinup I did for my buddy Jay Piscopo! A rather talented artist, I might say, really diverse too! He can do a lot of different styles and things and he's great at them all. So in exchange for the Colonel Strudel pin-up he did for me a while back, I did this of Captain Eli. If you don't know about The Undersea Adventures of Captain Eli, I suggest checking out at Jay is the author/artist of Captain Eli and the graphic novel came out just this month! So get a copy would you? Oh, and while you're reading it, try one of the amazing Captain Eli sodas! I recommend the orange pop or blueberry, my boyfriend is partial to the root beer :)

Now with colors by Jay

Since we're in issue two, we're introducing even more characters to Ham and Eggs! So far in issue 1 we met: Inspector Serrano Ham, Eggs Benedict, Baron Werner Von Blackforest, Colonel Towsta Strudel, G'nok Mamwabe, Bromley and some incidentals along the way. Issue 2 brings about Mayor Giblets and now (drum roll) Detective Jack Valentine Jones!

initial rough sketch of Detective Jack

Great name huh? I like it! Unfortunately neither Stephen or myself can take credit. Jack is based off a real live chihuahua that belongs to my good friend Socko Jones! Owner of Comic Book Jones, the best damn comic shop this side of New Pork City! And yes, Jack does really have one floppy ear and one stand-up ear. And it is as adorable as you might imagine! Another cool thing about Jack, real and hamified, is that he doesn't have your typical bug-eyes. This knocks back the freak-factor and cranks up the cute! But hopefully you can tell that being cute isn't the only thing Jack is'll have to keep reading Ham and Eggs to see what I mean.

And just for fun...Mayor Giblet's and Bromley's original designs! Enjoy!
Remember, every Tuesday and Thursday.!
