I build artful websites
that are easy to update.


Active Sites

  • The Infinite Corpse

    Trubble Club presents: an online collaborative comic open to everyone in the world who makes or wants to make comics. Built with Django. View on GitHub

  • Con-Mon

    Flask app to help frazzled cartoonists keep track of the myriad of conventions in a year. View on GitHub

  • Top Shelf Productions

    I’ve designed, coded-from-scratch and maintained the Top Shelf site since 2002.

  • Microcosm Publishing

    Independent publisher and distributor based in Portland, Oregon. Another from-the-ground-up site I designed, coded and maintained, going back to 2003.


    BMX history, bike-sharing, and marketplace with large and active userbase. I built multiple servers and coded custom PHP/MySQL backend to serve 8+ million pageviews/mo.

  • RDKLinc

    John’s RDKL (pronounced roadkill) brings new life to aging Apple laptops and also helps folks fix their own. Designed and coded-from-scratch, with Vanilla forums.

  • Spudnik Press

    An affordable and approachable community print studio in Chicago. Design by Sonnenzimmer, Wordpress wrangling by me.

  • Quimby’s Bookstore

    Everyone’s favorite Chicago bookstore, focusing on independently-published and small press books, comics, zines and ephemera. Quimby’s favors the unusual, the aberrant, the saucy and the lowbrow.
