It’s October, so that means HALLOWEEEEEN! And this year (or last year really) I was lucky enough to get handed a nice little extra project at work. I really enjoy making gift cards and getting to draw a cute little candy corn was SUPER awesome. Find this little guy and load him up with candy money at any Target store! You can even get one online!
It’s been a week since I got back from SPX and I’m still recovering. It was such a wonderful time hanging with my buds, seeing old friends and making some new ones.
I wish I had some good pictures of the show, but really it was all about the comics! This crappy drawing will have to do instead.
The actual show was great. We sold a lot of books and gave away even more. Both of my new comics, Broken Summer and Simple Routines 19 are now available in the One Percent Press webstore. Pick them up if I didn’t hand you one at SPX ;)
This year I was seriously overwhelmed by how many awesome comics were at the show. I came home with an empty wallet and a suitcase full of rad comics. I can’t wait to read everything (and catch up on sleep!)
Broken Summer!!! My latest comic is a collection of short stories about summer time. I’ll be debuting the book at SPX this weekend, at the One Percent Press table (N14, right across from Fantagraphics.) Don’t worry if you can’t make it though, because it’s available for pre-order from One Percent Press RIGHT NOW! It’ll ship out end of this month.
This is the cover to my new comic that will debut at SPX in a few weeks. It’s a collection of six short stories about summer time. I’m pretty excited about it and hope people like it too. I’ll post a few more previews of what the actual comic will look like soon :)
Some of the illustrators around the Target apparel office decided to make some posters with positive sayings on them (think “hang in there” cat) and hang them up all over the place. I chose this one because, you know, I like high fives. And drawing squirrels is fun too.
Been playing Shovel Knight all weekend and dying a lot. So I had to take a break and make a little gif animation of this rad hero bouncing on one of the cute little slimes from the first Black Knight level.
It’s a crazy fun Duck Tales/Mega Man/Super Mario World kinda game. Definitely check it out if you like those sorta games :)
Mega Man 2 was a big game for me as a kid. I got the idea to do this drawing of all the bosses using their powers against each other, in the order it’s easiest to tackle the levels. And then put it in repeat, so it’s a big, never ending pattern.
You can click on the second version (so it’s actual size) and save it to use as a pattern for you desktop background or phone. Just remember to set it as “tiled.” Should go without saying, but if you use it publicly, please give credit.
