Potato Chip Man (PCM) has finally went in to production, and I am very excited about this series. I’ve always loved government conspiracy stories and have wanted to do one for a long time, and now I’m getting my chance.
Anyone who is familiar with the MK-Ultra experiments conducted by the United States government will recognize similar threads in PCM. The main character, Potato Chip Man, is… a potato chip. But don’t let that turn you off from the series. This comic is more symbolic and surreal than anything else and that will become evident within the first issue.
Unfortunately I won’t be able to reveal any more of the story-line as it will ruin the first issue for you, but I can give you a sneak peak at the inked line art of the first page.
I am a big fan of drawing and inking by hand, thus this entire series will be done in this manner. India Ink and paper might make the production time longer, but I think the results are worth it.
Potato Chip Man is the working title of this series and may end up changing before the final release. Currently I have a projected release date of November 15th.

so you decided that the masses couldn’t deal with pcm’s full name eh? (P.C.M.T.P.T) i’ll use abbreviations to still keep corporate america in the dark. probably for the best in the end, the money saved on inking the full name is no doubt already worth it. I need to make my lazy butt e-mail that napkin doodle i made the other day. There’s just so much ice between me and converting that thing to a digital format. I will say, it is amazing to draw with a ball point pen on a napkin, the amount of texture you have to work with is incredible. Try it!
PCM’s real name?
uh… heh… I don’t know what you’re talking about…
