MISCELLANIOUS

Rodents, Californians, Senior Citizens, etc. This column is dedicated to fickle Serendipity, which daily does a number on my shins.

TIBETAN LANDSCAPES

It's either the most beautiful or the most awful place in the world. I can never decide.

SOCRATE!

470 - 399 BC, famed Greek Philosopher and Drunkard. Read the illustrated story of his life here, or jump to specific images below.

THE FALSE PROPHET HAKIM

Based on Jorge Luis Borges' tale in "A Universal History of Infamy." More to come.

From China, Nepal, and other places. The galleries are in chronological order and I'll add more.

A Play in One Act

Death, politics, and sarcasm in BC Asia Minor.

VARIOUS PLACES

Mostly in Tajikistan and Tibet, as doodled into my diary.

Wakhi Houses

Nonfiction. A few drawings and descriptions of Wakhi architecture.

THREE DRAWINGS WITH CAPTIONS

I honestly don't even know what this is about. I just have weird days sometimes.

A Brief Interlude Concerning Various Subjects

Four short, illustrated stories revolving around a rip in the binding of my diary.

The Book of All Enormous Things:

My novel, five years in the making. Contains two children, a large desert, and a hypothetical Fish.

BALLERINAS

Squat, but talented, dancers.

PORTRAITS

People I know, have known, once saw, etc.

PAINTINGS

Bad paintings of mine. Love 'em, or don't look at 'em.

PHOBIAS:

Don't these critters kind of make you nervous? They sure as heck make me nervous.

ILLUSTRATION

Sketches of characters from various things.

LI & TAG

Two fictional characters of mine. Li is totally off her rocker. Tag technically doesn't have a name.

MARGINS

Fresh out of the margins of Hannibal's philosophy notebook, these images will shock, amaze, and confuse you!

ANGELS

Some of these are angels per-se, others merely have wings because I like wings.

HIPPIES

'Hippies' is a somewhat broad term for what these guys do.

Nevertheless:

 

SHUTTLE COLUMBIA

Crashed down to earth, February '03.

WAKHI HOUSES

Sketches and floor-plans from the inside of Wakhi Houses in Pakistan and Tajikistan

MR. TWATSON

Mr. Twatson is every authority figure I have ever known. His pictures have numbers, not names. He has brethren in Middle Management.

GRAPH PAPER

Some obsessively intricate sketches on graph paper, drawn in months of depression during late 2004

PHILOSOPHY

Philosophical illuminations from the pages of Hannibal's Philosophy notebook! You will never look at Philosophy the same way.
