2 completely different things...

Here are two recent illustration jobs I've completed.

First: My proudest vegan moment-
Designing a t-shirt for the Herbivore Clothing Company!
This design will be available on t-shirts and hoodies sometime next week from their store in Portland and online.
For vegan metal-heads and hardcore kids everywhere!

Next: A poster for a Canyon Crest Academy of San Diego's production of Batboy The Musical!

Don't you wanna hire me to illustrate something for you?

Covered again...

I'm on the Covered Blog again. This time I covered a French adult horror comic called Tentation from the '60s or '70s? I'm not sure who did the original (Série Juane?) or what it's all about, but I love this site where I found it. Warning: some of the images may be offensive (there's a woman getting her clothes ripped off on just about every cover), but the artwork is beautiful and creepy.

See my Tentation next to the original at the Covered blog, and be sure to check out some of the other stuff over there.

Funny (Not Funny)

I have two pieces in this art show that opens next week in Detroit.
The lineup of artists is amazing and I'm really honored to be a part of it.

Here's the info:

January 22 - February 26, 2010
Reception: Friday, January 22 6-9pm

Detroit, MI 48230

The "FUNNY (not funny)" exhibition seeks to elicit uncomfortable laughter in the realm of black humor-a place where the serious and the taboo are fodder for comic provocation. Artists in numerous media have long sought to overturn convention and challenge what is funny with what is not as a means of producing humor out of the unlikeliest of situations. Work by the twenty artists on view in "FUNNY (not funny)" demonstrates that cartooning is keeping the tradition of black humor alive and flourishing. The very form of the comics page itself is as relevant a vehicle as ever, freed from so many of the commercial restrictions placed on other art forms, to effectively deliver potent images and narratives that carry with them a very immediate and accurate measure of the absurdity of our age.

Indy Euphoria this weekend...

Hey lookee there -- my name's on the poster!

I'm reposting about Indy Euphoria because I just found out that I'm doing a Q&A panel thing along with another awesome artist: SKINNER!

Q&A with me and Skinner on Saturday at 1:30 pm.
I don't know what to expect, but Skinner is a maniac.

Should be fun.
