If any of you remember, I did an animated music video for The Muffs a couple of years ago. Radiohead now has a contest for people to try and animate a music video for one of their songs. I love Radiohead and wish I had time to try out for that gig, but I'm too busy lately. However, Aaron Simpson (who runs the great Flash animation blog Cold Hard Flash) is doing a series of interviews with several animation artists who have tackled the music video in recent years.
Read my interview at Cold Hard Flash and learn more about how I made my Muffs video and other stuff. Also- this interview includes a much better version of the video than what has previously been available online, so watch it again!

Every time I see robot boobs it makes me giggle... not like a kid who just saw boobies and he's embarrassed, but because I think it's silly how often they come up in comics. It happens a lot in Heavy Metal Comics (or the awful movie), but if you really want to see cheesey, sometimes gross, sexy (if you're into metal genitalia) robots, check out the fascinatingly grotesque artwork of Sorayama.
I always wonder who gets off on that stuff, but someone does and that makes me laugh. So, I couldn't resist giving the "Mechanical Bride" in my Melvins comic book some metal boobs. However, my mechanical bride is more inspired by Metropolis than anything else.
The Melvins Comic Book (which has been on hiatus due to too much freelance work) is now back on track and will be finished this month. The above image is a panel from page 15 and features The Civilized Worm, Rat-faced Granny and the Mechanical Bride- characters inspired by the song titles from the Melvins album A Senile Animal.

I just got word that I'll be included in the American Illustration 27 Annual that will come out later this year.
They selected my "Self Indulgence" series that was a part of my solo show at Black Maria Gallery.
I was also included in American Illustration #26 and 24.
