Flashy flash

The last time I was in Chicago I was looking for some Mike Giant books but ended up getting Tattoo Mystique-The Art and World of Angelique Houtkamp instead. Check it out! Also the staff at Quimbys was super nice and helpful. Two thumbs up. Here's a flash/tattoo inspired lady.

Paper Machete!

The first issue of Paper Machete is here! I'm so stoked to be part of this awesome magazine that has brought together so many amazing and talented people. Hi-fives all around and a big thank you to Jason for including me in the first issue. You can see a preview of what's inside here. Ask me if you're interested in getting a copy.

Sketch of the Day 33: Beach Party

Experimented with a new combo of digital and traditional for this test-going to make it into a finished piece. WITH SOMETHING IN THE WATER. And the water won't be a photo. Also, this is the coolest thing I got from Quimby's this past weekend in Chicago. Batforum. Prepare to pee your pants. Unless you don't think the idea of bats talking about art is funny. I also saw Fantastic Mr. Fox. I hadn't cause I was all "whatever. how good can it be?" The answer is really "cussing" good.
