-Going Postal.

I am genuinely thankful for the response to the new prints I put up a week and a half ago. Thanks to everyone for there support, I'm doing my best, and am eager to get them out of my studio area.

Mission accomplished...sort of.

It's many days after New Years. There was a resolution I had for 2008. It was to get back in touch with people from my past and keep up with those in the present, I've had a real hard time writing or calling back people in recent years. All it takes is a moment to put the effort in. It might be living in NYC so long where there's so many people around, everything is convenient, expensive and fast paced. Friends come and go. It makes it easy to become self-involved and easy to put off the commitments towards others to the point of routine. Maybe I've always been like this or I've have recently grown this irrational shell towards people. I've had a few friends respond negatively to my lack of communication and rightly feel like shitballs. 2008 is the time to make amends and contact old friends and family.

Cheers to nostalgia.

I found some old comic strips in a photo album I did when I was 14 years old.
Remember those Safari Cards that your parents had when you were a kid? I still have a thousand of them. Looking at the first panel I know I used one of those cards for reference for this one below.

Here's another one done the same week thats just as light hearted.
The date says 12/17/92.
Notice the generic "comic hero hand" pose in the last panel.


  1. What a talented little kid.

  2. I love the humor!

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. you shouldn't give up on contacting old friends who respond negatively. i would call/email them again, it might show them you really do care...i have obviously had this problem before.

  4. I've been having some problems with friends coming and going all the time... To me it feels like making a connection with people or trying to keep in contact with them is worthless. At the end they're not really there with you and everyone has this whole life thing going on and is hard for you to try to be part of that and act like you care when you're not there and they're not there, it will just make the friendship more distant and lifeless. Thats how I feel, but at the same time is frustrating cause most of the people I've really got to get close to now are away :S

    NYC is so full of people but everyone is so lonely and miserable... I don't even get it..

    I love your work Esao its just brilliant!

  5. hey man, i'm an old friend of yours and i didn't call either...
