“Unripe Yoshi” for QPop Bros vs. Bros art show

Unripe Yoshi
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.

Pee-Wee’s Wallet

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!

Doug TenNapel original!

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.

CalArts Character Animation show 2012!



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 :D

Artists of the Month: September ’10

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.
