Wordplague: "When I graduated art school back in 2000, I had a couple of options in front of me. The first involved pursing an MFA in painting, leading to a promising full time career as a professor or gallery artist and illustrator. The second involved going on a seven year bender highlighted by an ocean of booze and Pink Floydian levels of psychedelic drugs. I went with door number 2. The path to Hell is paved with free coke and stripper sex.

It was around 2007 when I finally got motivated again and began to regret my long hiatus from the art world. So I started painting again, and for the first time since high school I tried my hand at writing.

I had two separate ideas to begin with. The first idea was for a gritty supernatural horror story about a modern day version of Hell. The second idea was for a humorous semi non-fiction account of my surreal drunken exploits over the years. So instead of doing both projects individually, I did something that was as epic as it was lazy: I combined them, and Jack’s Inferno was born.

Yes, I know it's been a long time since I updated. I've been busy.

First off, if you haven't seen my humor column Bad Acid yet, you should go do that now. It's here: I've got 14 articles up right now, with a new one every week or two. You can also follow the adventures of Copernicus Thunderbird, Homeless Lunatic Wizard.

Second, go buy my artwork.

Third, check out my article on I co-wrote and illustrated it.

Fourth, and this is the big one, JACK'S INFERNO IS BEING PUBLISHED AND IS DUE OUT NEXT MONTH. Who's publishing it, you ask? Wordplague. A brand new small press of rogue freelancers from the Cracked comedy workshop that I also happen to work for as an illustrator. The first book is called The Four Humors. All profits are for charity. It's a collection of short stories and art with an introduction by David Wong, author of the cult favorite John Dies at the End (currently being made into a motion picture directed by Don Coscorelli).

More Wordplague books lined up in the following months including a series of humorous non-fiction themebooks (starting with The Deathbook), a sci-fi horror novel about demon hunters, a multi-author tale involving steampunk Cthulu, and of course, Jack's Inferno, a dark comedy about hell. Scheduled release date is 6/20/11. Stay tuned.
