From his Facebook page, posted yesterday:

Steve was arrested last night. Neighbors with the barking dogs have been harassing him and finally succeeded in getting him hauled off. Trying to raise bail/legal fees and will be listing items online with buy it now prices.

donations can be sent via PayPal to or snail mail to 20783 N 83rd Ave Ste 103 PMB 191, Peoria AZ 85382 – we’d much rather people buy something though!

Thank you to everyone. We were able to make bail, but Steve won’t be released until morning. Now we have to pay for the legal counsel so he doesn’t end up back doing hard time for trying to keep his sanity. All he wants is to be left alone to create his art, not harassed by people who call the police on our kids because a frisbee ended up in their yard.

And posted less than an hour ago:

Status update: Steve is home an resting and sends his gratitude. We will be preselling the 2012 sketchbook on Kickstarter soon. In the meantime we appreciate funds coming in that can go towards our legal retainer.

Please click through to check out links to buy prints and original artwork at lowered prices, and check out his website for more.

Legal counsel is NOT cheap, and every little bit helps!
