I’m super honored to have been invited to participate in QPop’s “Bros vs Bros” art show, focusing on Super Mario Bros and the Shaw Bros. Growing up on Nintendo, I couldn’t pass up making fan art of some favorite foes turning the tables on Mario! Leave it to a koopa to put an unripe Yoshi egg in a [?] block.
I’m super excited to be a part of Paging Mr. Herman: A Pee-Wee Herman Art Retrospective! On display from July 19-25th, 2014, the Nerdist showroom at Meltdown Comics will have a million, billion, trillion pieces of Pee-Wee inspired art! I recreated his wallet, complete with images and cards of his past. All illustrations were made with watercolor and markers, and the wallet’s cover was painted with acrylic. See you there!
I attended CTN-X and was fortunate to see Doug TenNapel (creator of Earthworm Jim and a bunch of wonderful comic books I encourage everyone to collect) do a 45-minute demo of a sporadic comic page! Look!
And then, I was the super-lucky person who was quick to buy it– It’s framed on my wall right now. I really admire Doug’s fearlessness both in storytelling and inking. Draw details, then slather them with ink; force the lighting into submission! Make your readers lose all hope for your character and tie up the story in the last 6 pages! I was flattered that he enjoyed my hiccups. To be Yoda about his demo, “inspired, I am!” I wanted to upload the page here so everyone else can enjoy a good look at it.
Painted this poster for the upcoming Digital Arts & Tech Expo. C.A.T. will be there! Typography credit goes to Dimitri.
Soooo much amazing artwork! Such amazing friends! So many caricatures were drawn! The gallery opening last night was a blast and the art’s been lovely all week. Will definitely need to come next year (and the year after, and the year after that). This year I made 15 ink drawings on scrolls, which will be uploaded within the coming weeks 😀
Witty thinking and unexpected interpretations of common phrases can be an art. But when combined with visuals… Oh boy! The fun! And a little fun with microscopes, as well.
Amelia once told me you can tell a lot about a person by the books they have. So I thought it would be cool to post a pic of my now-jam-packed bookshelf 😀 I suppose it is an alternative form of self-portraiture!
