It’s Thursday again, and time for me to post two more pages of my serialized webcomic ARE YOU BEING WATCHED? on Patreon. It’s been a long wait for readers of this comic, what with loads of exposition and a side trip to the Old West, but we finally are at the main reason I’m doing the story in the first place- to give me a chance to riff on popular reality TV shows. For this first excursion, I’m taking on the long-running show America’s Funniest Home Videos– only, my version is titled America’s Ouchiest Accidents!:

David Draws The Donald


Donald Trump continues to lead the polls, but responsible pundits keep telling us that his moment in the sun can’t last, and that Republican voters will eventually come to their senses, so I figure that I had better get this post up posthaste.

The Secret Stash On Patreon: Coquille Board Caricatures


It’s the third Thursday of August, and time to post some Secret Stash material on Patreon. This month, I’m posting a whole lot of caricatures, mostly drawn for the New York Observer’s Eight Day Week column, which I illustrated from 1995 to 2008.

It’s the second Thursday of the month again, and time for me to post two more pages of my serialized web comic ARE YOU BEING WATCHED?, to Patreon, along with a selection of archived comics– in this case the third and final part of my 24 Hour Comic version of ARE YOU BEING WATCHED?, which serves as something of a first draft for the webcomic.

Are You Being Watched? On The Radio


Heads up, comics fans- tomorrow, Wednesday August 13th, at 11:30am PDT, I will be discussing comics, and specifically my Patreon webcomic ARE YOU BEING WATCHED? with the cultured and literate S.W. Conser on the long-running radio talk show about comics, WORDS AND PICTURES, on Portland’s listener-supported station, KBOO-FM. I’ll bring along some appropriate music, and possibly act out a scene from the comic as well.

Portland area listeners can tune in at 90.7 FM, and the rest of the world can stream the signal at If you missed it the first time, I’m pretty sure the show will be archived.

Are You Being Watched? On Patreon: Mugg Goes West- In Sepia!


Another Thursday, another two pages of my new webcomic ARE YOU BEING WATCHED? on Patreon (actually, I missed this Thursday because I was at the beach. Friday’s close enough). This time, it’s a scene set in the Old West, where Mugg has gone to test his “Gookie Face”, the expression that will instantly take him out of his adventures if anything happens to go wrong. This particular adventure has gone somewhat wrong from the start, since Mugg appears in the guise of a horse thief about to be hanged; however Mugg cannot resist a kiss before dying from a rancher’s wife who looks like Mandy, the girl he’s obsessed with. Can Mugg pull a Gookie before winds up at the end of a rope?

Are You Being Watched? On Patreon: The Devil’s Office


This week’s two page installment of my new webcomic ARE YOU BEING WATCHED? gives us our first glimpse of the devils’ office that Mugg goes to in order to sell his soul. I meant to give it a shabby look reminiscent of Jimmy/Saul’s cramped workspace on BETTER CALL SAUL, as well as the dingy linoleum offices of Ben Katchor’s JULIUS KNIPL strip.
