My name is Dave Davenport, but I am sometimes known as "Dogspunk", and sign my artwork "DDOG". I've been tattooing since 1996 and making comic books since 2004. In a past life I animated video games. To view galleries of my work, visit my website and click on the teeth menu on the left...

comic strip for "the fight" magazine

     So I've been advertising in "the Fight" magazine, a gay and lesbian free magazine that strives to be a quality above the usual rag. I like it, the politics of the mag are spot on, and the look of the thing makes it look like it costs money, yet it is free. It is a good read while being something your mom could look at.
Anyways, they had asked me to develop a comic strip to serialize in the magazine, the first installment in November's issue.

Now there is an MMA magazine called "Fight", but don't get them confused. It does get confusing, especially
since I decided to go with a story idea I'd had for a while dealing with a gay Mixed Martial Artist who'd grown up in a home full of domestic violence and how that affects him as a person, fighter, and partner.

Above is the finished piece. At least until I though... wait! They did not say it has to be B&W! So I colored it.

My partner Daniel has been acting as my editor on this. Thanks, baby!

has it really been 3 months?

So I've been slacking on the blog here. Been busy trying to keep the shop afloat and planning bent-con and such. I will be more forthcoming toot suite.
Here's a piece I made for the silly frags, a podcast for gay video-gamers put out every 2 weeks by my boyfriend Daniel, my buddy Dean and some vagrant named Dan. Check them out on iTunes, they are very entertaining.
