Hey all. Ron Kaplan of the excellent Baseball Bookshelf blog was kind enough to have me on his podcast to talk about my book. You can listen to me chat about drawing Ray Chapman, Carl Mays, and the gang on his site or on iTunes. I highly recommend his other interviews as well. Enjoy!

Hey everybody! I know, it’s been ages since I’ve posted. I hope you’ll forgive me. Exciting news — my first book, Hit By Pitch: Ray Chapman, Carl Mays and the Fatal Fastball is finally available! Details about the project HERE.
If you just want to stop reading now and run right over to McFarland’s website and order it, you certainly may. Also, I’m told it will be available on Amazon in April, and I will update you here when that’s the case.
What? That’s not enough baseball cartooning for you? You require more? You’re in luck. I have a piece in The Moment: Wild, Poignant, Life-Changing Stories from 125 Writers and Artists Famous & Obscure, Smith Magazine’s latest compilation. These are the folks behind the Six-Word Memoir, so you know it’s gonna be good. My comic is about the ’86 World Series rocking the foundation of my very existence, not to get too dramatic about it.
Look, a Random Pic from my graphic-non-fictive-novel-in-progress. Or, as you might know it, my book. Once again, without context (It’s better for everyone that way).
After reading this admirably straightforward-titled Slate article, What Can You Learn About A Ballplayer By Looking at his Butt? , I simply had to post my latest Ballplayer Butt. I could probably post A Butt A Day [hmm .. calendar idea] for the next three months, in fact. Oh, the baggy butts I’ve drawn. It’s an occupational hazard. Back in the baggy-butted days of yore (let’s just say 1920, for the sake of argument), I doubt there was much you tell about a player by his butt. Did they even CALL them butts back then? Perhaps polite society referred to them as “a gentleman’s haunches.”
Anyway, my point is… what could you tell from looking at these ballplayers’ butts? As a student of the Baggy Butt Era…not a whole lot.
Butt seriously, folks… have an ass-tounding weekEND.
