Abel's 6N6 Challenge

IN A SPAN OF SIX MONTHS, I ran six marathons, built a haunted house, grew & shaved an epic beard, threw a concert, held a 7-minute plank, hosted a celebrity auction, sold t-shirts, ate 96 cookies in an hour, and raised over $15,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and an additional $5,000 for various local non-profits. I then served on the LLS's "Man & Woman of the Year" committee, where I helped create and coach "Run Team Kina" with musician Kina Grannis. Together, the participants of RTK raised an astounding $72,000 in ten weeks. Now I work in TV comedy, spend my free-time drawing and writing, and would love to hear from you.

Cecil, aka Born Gold, has put out some new tunes, and they are great.

Every year, Nerdist lets me put together their Halloween playlist. This year, they lured me out of my cave early with the opportunity to make them a Friday the 13th playlist, too. Here it is, please enjoy responsibly.

Heading back into hibernation now.

Teedy Roosevelt is the only comic book that dares to ask such important questions as “What if President Roosevelt was in a secret society of time-travelers?”

FREE BUTTONS and Stretch Goals!

My comic-book, TEEDY ROOSEVELT reached it’s Kickstarter fundraising goal within 30 hours, and will soon double that goal.  To show our appreciation, Artistically Designed Press and I are now including a GIFT PACK OF BUTTONS, featuring characters from the book, with every physical order!

If we end up tripling or quadrupling the goal, I’ll even extend the length of the book with an additional stand-alone story.  Maybe that’s enough extra incentive for you to share the project with your history-buff friends??

TEEDY ROOSEVELT - The only comic-book that dares to ask: “What if our 26th President was part of a secret society of time-travelers?!”

TEEDY ROOSEVELT

HERE IT IS!  The Kickstarter for my historically inaccurate comic-book, TEEDY ROOSEVELT!  

I’m partnering with Artistically Declined Press, so no matter what, the comic will be published and distributed.  BUT copies will be in short supply.  This Kickstarter simply allows us to reserve a copy book for anyone who wishes to preorder.  BULLY!

After months and months of prep, the comic-book I’ve been making in my free-time, TEEDY ROOSEVELT, is finally complete and will soon be self-published and distributed through Artistically Declined Press.
Because there will only be a small number printed and shipped to stores (it’s my first book, after all), and I want to make sure anyone who wants a copy can get a copy, I’m launching a Kickstarter to offer pre-orders AT COST!  The campaign will go live TOMORROW!!
So dust off those reading pince-nez, and get psyched for the secret adventures of our most advenury president!

An old roommate of mine, and excellent artist/writer Chris Downes is participating in this creative endurance challenge.  I can’t wait to see what they come up with!  You can learn more and follow their progress at the link above.

Been a while since I last checked in here, and my apologies for that.  I’ve been working on a handful of art and TV projects that have consumed my time and energy, leaving little left for good ol’ fashioned blogging.
As these various things come to fruition, I’ll share highlights here and there, like this movie poster I just designed for my friends’ short film “The Oven.”  While the poster looks mysterious and unnervingly weird, the short is actually very sweet and adorably weird.  Keep an eye out for it!
