The Inkstuds radio show is doing a special fund-driving episode playing music by cartoonists: Lots of great music by Zak Sally,

Giant Robot is having their 4th annual Post-it show.

More info about the show soon...

This piece, along with 4 others, will be part of an art show called The 100 Euros Show in Stuttgart, Germany, opening this Friday.
I think this is the first time my art has been shown outside of the U.S.
If you're in Germany- GO CHECK IT OUT!

I'm a bit late to post about this,
but I have some artwork up at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh.The show is curated by Jacques Boryeau and includes hundreds of old B-movie posters and re-interpretations of movie posters by many of todays best cartoonists and artists. I have very little information about what's going on with the show, but it will be up from October 17th through January 30th.
if you look way back there- 3rd from the right, i think that's mine
And here is the poster i did of the Toby Hooper movie LIFEFORCE:
If anyone is near Pittsburgh, could you PLEASE go take some pictures for me?
