Baby Ramone

Ramone's origin story issues are in the works and I've got some recent inspiration for illustrating Ramone as a cute and cuddly baby.

Happy Birthday, Ramone Cologne!

Two years ago today, Ramone Cologne was introduced to the world! A few books, conventions, and a few hundred drawings and paintings later, there are still BIG plans for the little skunk. Although I am busy with other book projects right now, the next Ramone book is in the works, and it will be a grand adventure! Thanks to all the fans and supporters who gave Ramone a try during these first two years. Working on Ramone books and meeting new fans at book signings and conventions has been an amazing experience. Stay tuned for MORE FUN to come!

Inspiration for Panels

In the most-recent issue of Ramone Cologne, Skunklock Holmes, I tried to work in a couple of panels and scenes from stories and visuals that influenced me as a kid. Here's one example that I hope Star Wars fans appreciate when they read the issue.

Can you spot the other scenes in the issue that were inspired by well-known pop-culture scenes or characters? I enjoyed working on them and figuring out creative ways to get Ramone into those settings.
