Here are some pics of the Drink Water! mural from Burning Man 2016! The Mural measured 8×16 feet, and was put up at Center Camp on Saturday night before the gates opened.
Happy to announce that BurningMan.org has started a syndicated run of Drink Water!, starting from the very first episode. New episodes will post weekly on their website and will continue through the end of 2017. This syndicated run will feature longer episodes, a little extra polish, and a few slight revisions along the way.
So stay tuned!
And Drink Water!

Ahoy Reader! Happy New Year!
Thanks for following Drink Water! We are just a few weeks away from the end of Book 1. Does that mean our story is done? Hell, no! But it does mean that we’re reaching the end of our first day in Black Rock City.
Once we reach the end of Book 1, we will pause briefly while I spend a few weeks editing and making some slight changes to the script so far. Some pages will come out, other pages will be added in. Look for changes coming to episodes 29, 48, 52, 92, 108, & 126 to name a few. Also, I’m planning to add some additional pages around episodes 17 & 74.
I’ll post updates with the edits as they happen. Once Book 1 is done and ready to print, we’ll move right into Book 2 which picks up our story on Wednesday morning. And Book 2 is a doozy! Dragons! Thunderdome! Mudwrestling! Breakfast! Plus, the ongoing search for Sparkle Pony!
Thanks again for reading, everybody, and stay tuned! There’s a lot more to come in 2016!

Neptune at the Man, Black Rock City 2005.
Happy New Year!
Welcome to 2015! We are now two years into our tale and the action is just ramping up. The remainder of Chapters 5 and 6 will be filled with lots of big fire and explosions, so definitely stick around! The plan is to complete this story arch by the end of 2015, and print a collection in 2016.
Here’s another photo from the archive, Neptune on the Man’s pavilion circa 2005! Keep those home fires burning, everybody, and thanks for stopping by!
Drink Water will be going on a short hiatus. But fear not! New episodes will resume mid November, 2014. I have two painting exhibitions of new work opening next month here in Philadelphia, and there is a lot of work to be done. But stay tuned! As soon as the shows are hung, the episodes shall resume. November 2014!
I’m planning a print collection of Drink Water at the end of Chapter 7, which means that We have 2 1/2 chapters remaining in Book #1. We are currently about 150 print pages into our story, out of about 230 total (estimate). So there’s a lot more to come.
In the meantime, enjoy this picture from the archives. Neptune in Black Rock City, circa 2001. Photo courtesy of Christopher Rainone. Thanks for reading, everybody! Suckie fuckaye!

I just wanted to put down a few thoughts about where this is going, and what you can look forward to seeing in the upcoming episodes of Drink Water! We are currently sixty episodes into the story, which puts us somewhere towards the end of Chapter Three, on Day One. All of the action thus far has occurred on Tuesday morning/afternoon. The plan is to create an issue (book) out of each day, with seven days in the total story.
I’m hoping to have Tuesday finished by the end of 2014. There will be a total of seven chapters in the completed book. We are currently in Chapter Three (which began in Episode 50), and about 104 print pages into our story. I have been doing some light editing to past episodes as we go along, and there will be a full-edit done before the book goes to print.
I am following an outline, which is somewhat loose and allows for tangents and improvisations along the way. If you have any true stories that you would like to share about your experiences in BRC, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com . I’m always looking for quirky new subplots, and if I like your story enough I’ll find a way to weave it into the narrative and you give you the proper credit.
Thanks to everyone for your support and feedback so far. Stay tuned! The story has just begun…
