Hard to believe Emerald City Comicon is this weekend already, feels like last years wasn’t all that long ago but I guess that happens when you’re especially busy. Anyways another con meant time to shun human contact for a week or so and bust out a new mini comic promo. I didn’t get a table this year so I’ll most be wandering around trying to awkwardly talk to people that I internet know. If you happen to see me feel free to say hi right now I still look vaguely like this but signifigantly more beardy.
Felt right to bring Eleanor back for another adventure. Was trying to figure out what the story would be so I started by making a list of things that are awesome, it had stuff that made it in like crystals, atlantis, pizza rolls and fishmen and thing that unfortunately will have to wait for another day like brains in jars, dinosaurs and goth kids.
Things have been pretty busy with long term projects so I haven’t gotten to share anything in a while but here’s something new. This is my piece “A Feast Fit for a King” for Light Grey Art Lab’s “Boss Rush” show in Minneapolis if you happen to be in the area. The show celebrates how awesome video game villains are and how they should win more often. How could I resist going with the best giant hammer wielding penguin monarch around, King Dedede, although I’m not sure he’s a villains so much as a guy who’s just hungry and Kirby gets in the way. He’s also one of my favorite characters to play as in Smash Bros.

Here's a project that I can finally share with all of you, this past winter I was asked to illustrate a board book for KPO Creative call "Nap-a-Roo" written by Kristy Kurjan and you can now purchase a copy via amazon (both in Kindle or physical version) or the iTunes store. It's a cute little story about kangaroos and naps.
And so to celebrate it's release I'm going to be doing a giveaway of a physical copy of 2 copies of the book on via tumblr and on via twitter. To enter all you need to do is to like and reblog this post on my tumblr or retweet the tweet announcing this (because I assume you're following me on twitter too so you can hear about my lunch or what weird things I've found in thrift stores lately.) You have until noon pacific on Tuesday August 5th, I'll pull a winner from the tweet and the reblogs so do both to double your chances.

Emerald City Comicon is this weekend and so that meant it was time to bang out a new minicomic to give out. I don’t have a table this year so I’ll just be wandering around being a nerd. If you happen to see me (reminder I look more or less like this) say hi, I’ll have a bunch of copies printed to give away and I’ll try to not be completely socially inept. I've

Here are some facts:
1. Space travel is awesome.
2. Animals break things.
I was recently asked to contribute a piece to the Supahcute Science Fair show at Leanna Lin's Wonderland and as a science dork I was pretty excited to be a part of the show. This is something I've actually been kicking around for a little while and this was a great reason to finally develop it. The show opens Saturday, March 8 from 6-10pm at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland in Los Angeles with music by DJ Laminlove and sweets by Auntie Apple and Amara Kitchen, so if you happen to be in LA you should stop by.

I was recently asked to illustrate a couple of covers for this week's Monterey County Weekly's issue and holiday guide. I have never been to Monterey Bay but I love aquatic mammals and birds more than just about anything. Thanks to AD Karen Loutzenheiser from pretty much giving me free reign on these.
I'm not usually feeling very festive this time of year but for some reason I think this year I'm into it all., except the cold, I can't deal with the cold.

"Reading Comics in the Park" for Light Grey Art Lab’s 6Degrees show. It’s a show about connections and everyone made postcards about who they are, where they live, things they do. For me I combined one of my favorite places in Seattle in Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill, and one of my favorite things reading comics in public.
There’s an opening reception this friday 12/6 at 7 PM at the Light Grey Art Lab, more info about that here. Prints of this are available here.

If you’re in the Minneapolis area make sure to check out the Station Zero show at Lightgrey Art Lab opening this Friday at 7 where you can see my reinterpretation of the cover for the retro sci-fi novel "The Persimmion Sequence". You can also purchase copies of the print and loads of others in their online shop. The book may not have been the most exciting story ever but I can assure you that it does contact apes with transplanted brains, giant evil computers and exploring planets filled with crystals. Just in case you're curious I've included the original cover below.
