Apollo 11 Seal (with dinosaur)

On July 20, 1969, 50 years ago this month, NASA sent the first human beings to walk on the moon. It’s the farthest any human has been from our home, the planet we evolved on, and the same planet every single one of us lives our entire lives.

Sure, politics played a large role in making the moon landing possible. But it would never have been achieved without a healthy dose of scientific and technical curiosity. I believe the lasting legacy of Apollo 11 will be of humankind’s quest to better ourselves and to learn more about the world and universe around us.

In honor of this anniversary, I made a version of the Apollo 11 seal. You’ll note the pteranodon instead of a bald eagle, but otherwise it has essentially the same elements.

Happy Moon Landing Anniversary, everyone!


Falling Rock National Park, issue 8

The eighth issue of Falling Rock is a truly unique production. For the first time, I handed over the entirety of drawing duties to someone else. My friend, the incredibly talented illustrator Oscar Woodruff, has drawn issue 8 from cover to cover. He and I worked on a story idea from one of my early comic strips, and I think the strange marriage of my words and his art is compelling.

As always, if you are a subscriber you will receive your copy in the mail. Otherwise, if you’d like to get your hands on this issue you can purchase it over at my Books page.

I will also be at San Diego ComicCon once again this year, from July 17-21, at Small Press table O6. Please stop by and say hello!

Without further ado, here is the cover. It’s an understatement to say I was blown away the first time I saw this, and each subsequent viewing has not diminished my awe.


meet me at ComicCon

I will once again be at San Diego ComicCon next week, July 17-21! Stop by and see me at table 0-6 in the Small Press Pavilion. I will have issues of Falling Rock, including the brand-new issue 8, dinosaurs in space prints and coloring book, and my two graphic novels.


San Diego ComicCon 2019

My eighth year at San Diego ComicCon was just as fun and surprising as ever. Falling Rock National Park issue 8 made its debut. Dinosaurs in Space continues to be my biggest seller. I got to catch up with old friends, and I made some new contacts. In all, a very successful trip. Here’s a few highlights, but if you want even more, visit my Instagram @kidshaycomics.


coloring pages, part 3

In my ongoing quest to make all of LQ’s favorite fictional characters available as coloring pages, I present the latest batch. Bash, Dash and Ferdinand are from Thomas & Friends. Jumpy is a late addition, considering she is one of LQ’s very favorite characters and figures prominently in her day-to-day mental life. She is a motorcycle from the Amazon show Stinky & Dirty. Finally, Otis the tractor is a book character, starring in his own series of picture books.

As always, feel free to download and color these yourself. I’d love to see other people’s takes on these (in our house, at least) quintessential characters.
