Read my comics!

If it seems like I haven't been updating much lately, it's because I've been putting all my efforts into my weekly webcomic, Pizza Gun.

Hourly Comic Day, 2014

My first time participating in Hourly Comic Day, which is a sort of cartoonist holiday that's observed by drawing an autobiographical comic about each waking hour of February 1st.

Epilogue to that one: I finished the Back to Bed, Emily ordered something else, and we both loved our breakfast. I recommend Equinox to anyone reading this. 

Next, we shopped some vintage clothes at Animal Traffic, another lovely establishment, and I took a side trip to The Modern Man Barber Shop for some beard balm from Man's Face Stuff–a company run by local cartoonist/renaissance man BT Livermore.
Guardian Games is a really cool place.

Show Off will be a casual-type interview show where my girlfriend Emily highlights local talent in all its forms. I'll try and remember to add a link here once the first episode is edited and online!

Fenrir will be opening in March

D&D Character Portrait

I drew this for the character sheet of my friend Justin Kent, who plays a kobold warlord in Dungeons & Dragons.

Newt Gingrich illustration

My latest drawing is featured in Newt Gingrich's new blog post, The Newt Gingrich Lunar Plan for American Prosperity, on jacobmercy.com. I offered Mr. Gingrich the below version, but he decided to go with an earlier, partially-colored draft. His reasons are his own.

Face-In-Hole

Earlier this week I got a last-minute commission from the Portland office of Yelp.com to paint them a portable face-in-hole board (no, there doesn't seem to be a better term for that) that they could carry around Portland's Holiday Ale Fest. They're posting all the results on Facebook, and here's one of my favorites so far:



I'll be at the fest myself this evening, so come get your picture taken with me! Just make sure you put your whole face through the hole, or won't come out very good.

Birthday Card for Maria Montoya

Our friend Maria has a very strong and specific pet peeve... so Kari had the idea of an interactive present to bring her the kind of satisfaction she'd otherwise never get. She handed me the concept and let me handle the execution, so here's what we got:

Front cover:


Pull on the tab at top:

(you can pull on the bottom tab to reset)

Open the card:


Open the small envelope tucked into the left flap, to find closed-mouth stickers:


Position the stickers over the corresponding faces:


Here's Maria working on the stickers:


Here's the finished card:

...and, I'm back.


Wordpress is real great and all, except nobody told me about the security holes by which someone can apparently hijack your admin account and pump your whole site full of malware. I managed to export all the posts and comments that went on there, so the archive you see here is an unbroken run.

Here are a few chalk drawings I did on construction paper at other people's houses, while I could have been wasting my time being social:

SIX: finished

Did this months ago, but my blog was down so I never posted it here. Inking was very rushed, but at least you can almost tell what's going on now.














Full disclosure: I stole all the dialog for the above comic directly from NBC (it is the first few minutes of the first episode of Friends) and combined it with characters which I stole from Marvel Comics (the original Sinister Six from The Amazing Spider-Man.) I believe this is fair use of both properties, but let me know if you feel otherwise.
