Here’s my ham loaf recipe for the They Draw and Cook assignment. Below is what I wrote about it on TDAC:
I know turkey tends to be the king at Thanksgiving and Christmas meals, but this ham loaf recipe has been a mainstay of my family’s meals at Christmas, Thanksgiving and even Easter.
If you’re imagining a typical meatloaf, think again. This dish combines ground ham and turkey for a rich, meaty flavor complimented by a sweet-and-sour currant and mustard glaze.
I was really excited about Thanksgiving and Hanukkah being on the same day this year, but I didn’t realize how sacreligious it was for me to make a ham-based recipe illustration until I was halfway through it. Sorry, Judaism! I’m pretty fuzzy on the Old Testament.
What I’m Working on, November 2013:
1. I’ve got a few portrait illustrations underway. The one you see a snippet of here is a surprise. Shh.
2. I have a recipe published in Holiday Sweet, a recent cookbook from They Draw and Cook! It’s perfect timing for our latest QDC assignment to illustrate a TDAC recipe.
3. Still making comics. Here’s a small preview. A lot of them concern the supernatural, so I’m thinking of publishing them together as a collection.
4. The most recent development in my career as an expert-level highly trained professional museum volunteer is being asked to write a guest blog for the Dallas Museum of Art’s blog Uncrated. Expect to see it online in January.

Super List Saturday, November 16, 2013: 8 Happy Cats.
These cats are happy. Why are they so happy?
The holidays are upon us, Tumblypoos. I have as many gripes about the season as the next guy, but if there’s one thing about the holidays we can agree is awesome, it’s the food.
I’m happy to announce I have an illustrated recipe published in They Draw and Cook's Holiday Sweet recipe book! All the recipes, including my healthy ginger cookies, come from the website and are illustrated by people who love art and love food. Read the TDAC blog post here and buy the book on Amazon here.
Imma do what I want today because it’s my birfday.
Remember that autobiographical comic I posted a page from a while ago? I finished it! It’s called Making Monsters and for a limited time, you can read it here.
Repulsion, ink and digital color, 11”x17”.
I may be bending the rules a little by picking a psychological thriller, but Repulsion is my favorite scary movie. It presents a compelling, believable psychosis in the protagonist and plays with the boundaries between villain and victim, beautiful and terrifying. If you can handle a terrifying film, I recommend this one. Happy Hallowe’en!
Chirophobia: fear of hands. Didn’t think the Google image search for that one would be so funny.
Wishing you a surreal Hallowe’en, Tumblypoos.
