Since the age of 15 I have endured severe rheumatoid arthritis that basically effects every bone in my arms and legs. In 2008 it got so bad that I had to go to India and get both of my elbows and my left knee replaced due to lack of insurance for my pre-existing condition. Recently my right elbow failed and needed to be revised. Elbow replacements are rare so my surgeon instructed me to fly to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota where they preform the surgeries more often.
The surgery was a success but there was collateral damage. Basically, I have not been able to straighten my arms for years and during the surgery they have to force the elbow as straight as they can. This forced straightening caused a traction injury to my median nerve and I am currently unable to feel or move my right thumb, index, and middle finger which means I cannot draw. The nerve is in tact but it will take a long time before I have full use of my hand.
Due to medical costs I will be releasing SVMMONING SICKNESS through crowdfunding on Kickstarter or Indiegogo. It should be up for pre order soon along with more teaser images. Please share the images from the book and help me get this thing out there.
Thanks, you folks are the best!

I’ve been doing some work with my childhood friend George Lewis Jr, or Twin Shadow. Here’s a quick drawing for his big, birthday bash this weekend. Check out his website for the details on that. 
Keep posted for some Twin Shadow shirt designs for the upcoming tour.
