Once Upon A Time In The East

FEBRUARY 15, 2013

I've been developing a personal project that's been on the back burner for quite a while (too long, actually). I don't know, maybe it's age related, but I've been in a reflective mood lately. So, I finally decided to stop procrastinating and put these drawings out there for whatever it's worth.

It's sort of a graphic journal referencing the pop (and pulp) culture I grew up with...  American and Italian, historical and myth, high and lowbrow, good, bad and ugly.

I've started a separate blog for this project at

Some of the drawings are below.
