X-Men Projectors Wolverine Toybiz 1994

This is my piece for the latest show at for Light Grey Art Lab’s Bower Bird showwhich is based on the theme of collections. I had originally planned to draw a selection of some of the weirder action figures I’ve collected over the years but after laying everything out it just got really busy so I decided to focus on just one.
When I was a kid I was afraid of pretty much everything, I was also a kid who had to get up a lot in the middle of the night to be taken to my grandparents house because my parents had to go to work. This meant that I’d have to carry whatever I took was sleeping in/with with me to school the next morning. I was getting just to the point where it wasn’t entirely okay for me to carry my stuffed animals to school with me but I was still a kid who was the only one awake in a house in the middle of the night and afraid of the dark. One day my grandmother bought me one of these awesome x-men projector figures, which was cool enough because it projected images from the cartoon on the wall but more important it was a light source that I could take with me to sleep with and then bring to school to next morning without having to worry about kids being mean. I recently came into possession of one of these again and it’s still pretty rad.

The show opened on Friday so if you’re in Minneapolis please check it out and if you’d like to buy a limited edition postcard or giclee print you can do so here

Book Signing and Launch Party at Secret Garden Books

Happy to announce that I will be doing another book signing/launch party for “I Want To Eat Your Books”, this time right here in Seattle. I’ll be singing/sketching at Secret Garden Books in Ballard at 7pm on Friday November 13th. They are probably the best children’s book store in Seattle so I’m really excited for the opportunity. I hope to see everyone there, invite your friends/family/random people from the bus. I’m hoping to make this the big one since Seattle is where I call home.

I Want To Eat Your Books Story Time and Book Signing 10/31

I am very excited to announce that I will be at Powell’s City of Books in Portland OR at 11AM on October 31st for their Halloween Kid’s Storytime. I’ll be reading and signing copies of my new book “I Want To Eat Your Books” from Sky Pony Press as well as doing a drawing demonstration on drawing monsters. When I lived in Oregon I would spend pretty much every Sunday at Powell’s so it’s a real honor to be invited, if you live in nearby stop by and see me awkwardly try to interact with kids.

Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel

I haven’t done a lot of commissions lately but I had one coming in from someone who wanted to fill their soon to arrive baby’s room with kid friendly comic stuff with a focus on strong female characters for a Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel portrait. Between the subject manner and the reasoning behind it how could I say no. 

G. Willow Wilsons Ms. Marvel is one of the books that I look forward to the most every month, I am so excited that it’s been such a success. It’s such a fun and smart book and it’s just refreshing to see a book that isn’t just another grim white dude doing grim white dude things.

Pizza-Roll for Initiative

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. 

A Feast Fit for a King

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.
