"That’s all I need! A guy with the I.Q. of a Mack Truck telling us "gals" to stay out of trouble!"
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.
Looking for a holiday gift idea? Inprint is offering 25% all order through the end of today, consider picking up something from my shop.
"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.
I didn’t have my normal texture brushes on this computer so I was playing around with Kyle’s Ultimate Brush Set today, so here’s a Sheriff Wolf. These things are magic, definitely going to keep playing with them, go give him money today.
They’ve got me on a new intuos at work, it’s bigger and a lot more sensitive than the tablet I’m used to working on so here’s my warm up Sasquatch.
Hey tumblr, I swear I haven’t abandoned you, the last couple of months have just been kind of tough and I’m hoping to get back to regular posting soon.
In the meantime I wanted to share this event with you, SCBWI of Western Washington has an exhibition up right now in the Washington State Convention Center in downtown Seattle and are having a kind of opening, meet the artists, make art with the artist even this Sunday 10/27 from 2-5. My piece The Princess Who Decided to Become a Pirate is on display and I’ll be there drawing things so you should stop by.
"Mrs. Shelley’s Class Grade 2"
Even though I don’t work in a school anymore fall for me still means back to school (well that and cider, doughnuts, and pumpkin everything) and I’m pretty sure if you ask my friends they’re tell you that this is how they think I see all children.
Jason vs. the Hydra for Silver Screen Society’s July movie "Jason and the Argonauts". Everybody always talks about the skeleton monsters from this movie but I think that the hydra with all of the heads moving independently is just as impressive.
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.

Hey everyone please consider supporting LightGrey Art Lab during their yearly fundraiser. These guys consistently put on some of the best shows happening right now and I’ve had to opportunity to take part in 3 so far an hopefully they have a long life ahead of them and I can keep participating. There’s some really amazing work here for cheap and I know some of you need things to fill your walls.
I am very excited to finally be able to share this, this is my cover for Boom Studios Adventure Time mini-series Candy Capers written by Yuta Ota, Ananth Panagariya. This was originally going to be for a later issue in the series but I found out recently that it was selected to be a San Diego Comicon Exclusive for Awesome Conventions with a limited run of only 500 copies. You can preorder a copy here or stop by their table. Seriously though shout out to the folks at Boom who are doing amazing things and letting cool people contribute to their projects.
Also on a personal note, I’m trying to figure out if there’s a way that I can come and hang out and do a signing but am having some trouble tracking down a place to stay, everything seems pretty much completely book already so if anyone know somewhere that has space or I can crash for a night or two let me know.
My latest book for MeeGenius is now in their shop, “The Ice Cream Shuffle” by Lauren Pastorek tells the story of a girl who just wants some ice cream but in her ice cream fueled daze get separated from her mother, and the entire story is told in song.
