Ragmop Price List... Sort of...

Hello to all. For those of you who have inquired after the original art in Ragmop I'm still trying to figure out a fair market for my work. That said most pages that don't include dinosaurs or that aren't splash pages will be priced at $100. The dinosaur pages will be slightly higher ($125?) and some splash pages will start around $150 depending on the content. The pinup pages I'm listing for $200. Pages 8-16 (drawn at 11 x 16.6)and page 128 are likewise $200.

As I said this is all tentative as I try to establish a place for my original art in the market and what I feel is a fair return for my labor. I'm open to negotiation especially if you'd like to purchase more than one page. Or you can just jolly well tell me where to go.

The Comedy Stylings of Grace Walton & Dave Sim

Hey everyone. Trevor just posted the last of the Ragmop book launch video on YouTube featuring my daughter Grace and Dave Sim (not my daughter) in heated debate over the merits of the Three Stooges. Warning: This video contains scenes of extreme cartoon violence.

Yet More YouTube Links

Hey all.

Trevor just posted two more segments from the Ragmop book launch on YouTube. They feature me reading from the book. The second installment features my daughter Grace joining me for a reading from the section where Alice meets Little Miss Universe.


Artwork For Sale Part 2: The New York Con

Thank you to those of you who have inquired about and/or purchased artwork from both Ragmop and Grendel Tales: The Devil's Hammer. I will be in New York for the Con in February with art to sell as well as the book. For those of you attending please drop by. I'll be sharing a table with an old friend Andrew Pepoy.

In the meantime, if you're interested in my original art, please send me an email at Right now people are getting the pick of the littler, so if there's a special page you'd like to inquire about I'm here. Or, if you'd like to comment on the book itself, you can do that too.

Thank you to all of you for receiving me back so generously.

Happy New Year. Here's to a great 2007.

Ragmop Art For Sale

Yes, it's that time of the year when no one has money to spend. What better moment to put the contents of Ragmop up for sale? For prices and page availability please contact me at

Prices do vary, of course. Ragmop was done in the stone age method of cut and paste with the lettering on the artboaeds (so you can read the funny bits). Some pages that were reproduced as scans due to missing artboards are obviously not for sale. If anyone knows the whereabouts of the artwork for "Spiked" and "Ragmop Babies" please let me know. If you see this artwork for sale anywhere else (not that there's any great demand for my art) please note that I consider it stolen material.

Happy New Year to one and all.
