YOU’RE PRO-BONO (2016)

 I illustrated a particularly dark period of Vampiric Internet Clown and "Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli's Twitter Feed - while his company was being indicted for fraud (and after buying Wu Tang Clan's only copy of the group's  Once Upon A Time In Shaolin  for $2 million dollars), Shkreli reached out to rapper Kanye West via Twitter, offering to purchase his forthcoming  Life of Pablo  album for $15 million dollars, under the condition that the record may not be released to the general public. The catastrophe that follows Shkreli's outlandish and ill-conceived provocation is a portrait of contemporary narcissism and dim-witted DIY-publicity. 55 pages.

HONEYPOT/MR. SELF-DESTRUCT (2018)

 Graphic Novel featuring a dog named Honeypot, following her nose to the scene of a crime and her sense-memory of a traumatic event. Typewritten lyrics from Nine Inch Nails’ bombastically cynical ‘Mr. Self-Destruct’ (the opener of their 1994 opus  The Downward Spiral ) contrast sharply with Honeypot’s sweet, dog-logic naïveté as she adapts to the circumstances. 29 pages.
