mad busy

Haven't had much time for personal projects lately, but here's the top tier for Nerve, page 54 in scribbly thumbnail form.

Zinefest was a really good time! I'd like to especially thank Anna, King Mini, and Sarah for making it memorable! See you all at MIX!

This is a piece I did for Spring Con back in May, to liven up my table: the cast of the books I was selling, hangin' out.They are, from left to right, the goblin, that angry bird who thought his cigarettes went missing, Frankenstein's monster, Waltar, Godzilla, Prrty Good, Martin, Fientje, Max, Cassie, the skull guy who allegedly stole the bird man's cigs, Taylor, Nosferatu, Amy (holding Marla), the STOOPID PIG, alien prison officer, and Cthulhu.

New kitten + KICKSTARTER

Got a new kitten from the shelter a few weeks ago...he's a cuddly fluffball with comically large paws that make him walk funny. He has the loudest purr I've ever heard and flops in your arms like a ragdoll if you hold him like a baby. He also likes avocados and will knock them off the table and try to bite them open. Little shit.

For the last week the venerable Ed Moorman and myself have turned my Land Shark doodle into a 4x5" print for The Good Minnesotan's KICKSTARTER fundraiser. Ed posted the process on his blog, here is the final image:
Read more about Kickstarter. Pledging for this book gets you fabulous prizes.

Untitled Tiff

I found an untitled TIFF with a bunch of layers that each had a goofy little sketch...this one's the only keeper. I am reasonably sure it's the likeness of Mark Sandman, frontman of the most awesome motherfucking band ever, Morphine. Mild coincidence: this song's been stuck in my head all day.

Interview with ItchyKeen Art Fiends + MINNEAPOLIS ZINEFEST

I did an interview with Raighne and Meghan Hogan over at their new blog ItchyKeen Art Fiends about the nature of work and art.

Though it is generally truthful I am afraid I made myself a liar on the last question: GODZILLASUIT will not debut Zinefest this weekend (it'll be out at MIX instead, cross my heart.) Here's one of the drawings early, though: the Mosu-Goji suit, from Mothra vs. Godzilla.

I do however have a new offering for Zinefest: the deck of Prrty Food playing cards, Play Wit'cher Food, has gone into its second printing and will make its official debut. Find out more here.

Here's another self portrait with a gorilla mask. It was the bio pic in the ill-fated print run of Nerve #2, which collected chapters 5-7 (but was missing a 2 page spread.) Mr. Kissling is officially the only person to own this incomplete book.

Also, here's a panel from the in progress chapter 8.
