I've had a weird career. Not everything I do takes the form of a graphic novel or webcomic. Sometimes I just come up with ideas that take on a life of their own. I've put them here in "Inventions" because I'm not sure what else to call them.
My dare to a friend to draw a comic in a day has, since 1990, since been taken up by thousands of artists around the world. Learn more about the dare, the day, the anthologies, and read my own attempt—the first 24-hour comic.
An idea from Understanding Comics with implications beyond comics.
An odd idea-generating map.
A dadaist card game using panels from Ernie Bushmiller's 20th Century comic strip Nancy.
A spatial concept with a checkered history and potentially interesting future.
A comics industry document I first wrote (and participated in the rewriting of) in 1988.
