I have loved cartoons and comics ever since I was a child. My mom taught me to read using comics as well as books.And I learned that I could get attention from other kids in grade school by showing them my drawings. Later, in high school, I found that was also a way to draw attention from girls. The practice of drawing is who I am.Combining words with pictures is a challenging but fun way to make a living. I have worked with a lot of talented writers, but especially Harvey Pekar on his autobiographical comic series “American Splendor” and Scott MacGregor on our graphic novel “Fire On The Water.” They’ve inspired me to hone my craft everyday.Telling a story with art is what I aim to do with every image I’ve created. Presently I am working with my wife Laura on our series of large and colorful environmental and socio-political paintings. But I will forever continue to work on comics in glorious black-and-white

The Superscript Gauntlet
The Superscript Gauntlet is a seasonal challenge in which players compete in a variety of Magic: The Gathering events in an attempt to win a limited edition playmat. The playmats will be exclusive to The Superscript Gauntlet, and will only be available while supplies last. Participating players will receive a punch card, which will track their completed events. Once all six events on a player’s punch card have been completed, they will receive a playmat.The six Gauntlet challenges are as follows:
- Sealed DeckCompletion of an event requires the player to register for the event on time and participate in all of their matches. Upon completing their first event, the player will receive a punch card, with the corresponding event punched out. At subsequent events, the player must provide their punch card in order to receive credit for participating in the event.Due to the limited nature of the playmats, players will have a better chance of winning a playmat the earlier in the season they complete the Gauntlet. Superscript staff will give notification when nearly all of the playmats have been claimed, by making announcements in the Superscript Discord and at the start of Gauntlet events. In the instance that not enough playmats remain to be awarded to all the players that complete their punch card at the same event - playmats will be awarded based on the players’ punch card number in ascending order. Because Gauntlet Cards will be handed out in numerical order, this means the players that began participation in the Gauntlet earliest will be awarded a playmat over a player that began participation later in the season.
