News and things

IMG_0877.JPG

I’m starting a website for Cramhole. Things move slow in the world of Cramhole, so I don’t know much what I’m dong with it at the moment, but issue number 5 is back from the printer and I figure the website will be useful to tell you if I’m tabling somewhere and include musings, drawings from art nights, and updates. I’m working on two longer stories at the moment: one I hope to be the next novel and one I hope to be a long comic story. So I’ll try to keep updating. This is hooked up to Instagram, whatever the hell that is. Check back as you like.

Cramhole #5 – The Curse of Khnum

Cramhole # 5 – The Curse of Khnum

If you thought #4 was arbitrary, #5 will probably throw you as it’s 40-page, long form story with just a few barely competent illustrations by Billups Allen. The story takes place in the near future where seeds from a strain of Ancient Egyptian marijuana escape the Smithsonian and are planted accidentally in Rock Creek Park. The effect on the intelligence of the citizenry is bleak, although it can be hard to tell at times.

Cramhole #4!

Cramhole #4

#4 again follows the vignette format. It has been said to have gone off the rails a bit for including a long article about the obscure bebop sax player Aubrey Moore. I try to think of it as Cramhole's New Yorker phase. Still plenty of vignettes illustrated by artists Christine Cunniff, Laura Harris, Jay Littleton, Josh Baker, and Anne Baker. Also, Mr. Chen returns, probably because he was unemployed at the time. Segments include "Things Overheard at Smash," "What's in the Hold Bin?," and "The Near Misses of Aubrey Moore."

Cramhole #3

Cramhole #3

#3 continues the vignette format with another series of comic stories about working in record stores and being a general dumbass. Dorothy Gambrell and Mr. Chen return (under the condition that I never call again) and Danny Martin from the excellent zine Publick Occurances (also not speaking to me) contribute. Segments include: "More Death of the American Record Store" and "Yard Sale."

Cramhole #2

Cramhole #2

#2 is a series of comic vignettes about working in general and also working in my most comfortable space: record stores. Cat and Girl's Dorothy Gambrell generously contributed a comic in this issue, along with the rare and enigmatic Mr. Chen. Segments include: "Death of the American Record Store" and "Who Hasn't Had at Least Thirteen Fuckin' Jobs!!!"

Cramhole!

Cramhole #1

Cramhole #1 is a 40-page comic inspired by a series of difficult houseguests one busy summer. Billups Allen has been accused of being a stick-in-the-mud about it, but those people didn’t live through it.
