Sacré bleu!!!

If you live in France, and you want to hire me to do animation, you can now find me at Mr. Hyde.

Mr. Hyde is a production company that represents 50 young, independent film-makers from around the world. I'm extremely excited to be a part of this. I may soon be directing commercials for French T.V.!

I just found out I was selected to be in the American Illustration 24.

If you don't know about this book, it's an annual, juried competition for illustrators.

I'm shocked, but extremely excited that I got in this year.

Other names, that I recognize, in the book with me this year: Gary Baseman, Oksana Badrak, Calef Brown, Chester Brown, Evah Fan, Tomer Hanuka, Peter Kuper, Michael Kupperman, Eun-Ha Pak, Jeff Soto, Rallph Steadman, Mark Todd, Gary Taxali, Adrian Tomine, Esther Watson, and about 300 other artists.

The book comes out in November!

I Will Destroy You Comics will be at APE this weekend (April 9th and 10th).

I have joined forces with Jesse Reklaw and Flash Pham's Global Hobo Distribution Co. and we will be sharing several tables with several artists.

I have one new mini comic called "Henry & Glenn 4-Ever" debuting at this convention.
This mini-comic is the first published work of Igloo Tornado, an artists' collective that I started with my friends: Levon Jihanian, Gin Stevens, and Scot Nobles.

The Hobo booth will also have an art gallery with lots of original art by lots of artists, including me.

So come on by the Hobo booth and fill your bindles full of good comics, art, and t-shirts.

Check the A.P.E. website for times and location.


It's Time for a Kartoon Kocktail!

Kartoon Kocktail will be happening on April 8th in San Francisco.

This is the 2nd annual collection of independent animation curated by Jesse Reklaw and Stefan Gruber.

I'm not showing the Muffs video, as i planned, because it's not finished yet.

BUT i have created a 1 minute animated intro for the festival that i think is very funny.

In addition to that, there are several great cartoons and animated films showing this year.

Please come out, have a Kocktail, and watch some Kartoons this Friday!

For more information, and the location, visit the Kartoon Kocktail website!
