I strung together a bunch of panels from 12 O'Clock Somewhere and cut them to a cool cover of Funeral for a Marionette by my brother Jonathan's jazz quartet The Aurora Club.  True-blue visitors to this site will recognize a few of the panels, but there are lots more (like the one above) in store.

One of the doodles I did while working on 13 GRAVES. Boy Boy did not appear in the pilot. Colored with my ever-trusty Corel Painter 11.

I did these in watercolor and markers... and perhaps the most generic typeface computerdom had to offer in the early nineties.

For the confused, look up 'thylacine' on wikipedia and the joke falls into place.
