I did this very small sketch of one of the characters from FUNGUS, and colored it with the sap of a plant growing in my back yard. I like to do at least one sap drawing each summer. Pre-orders are available for FUNGUS: The Unbearable Rot of Being from Retrofit comics, shipping super soon… it’s at the printer right now.
Run, run, as fast as you can, to the Retrofit store online and pre-order my awesome new book, FUNGUS: The Unbearable Rot of Being. It could change your life! (My previous Retrofit book sold out quite quickly, so don’t get left behind!)

These little bits of mold and fungus that live beneath our feet are actually very interesting creatures. This book contains 11 chapters of little fungal creatures discussing life’s virtues and intricacies.
Almost invisible. This is how light my pencils look, before inking. I use a 6H pencil on 2-ply Bristol paper. This is the cover to my new book, FUNGUS the unbearable rot of being, to be published this fall by Retrofit. Should be out for SPX!
