Monsters and Dames

Here's this year's effort for ECCC's Monsters and Dames book. There's a monster, and a dame...but which is which? YOU DECIDE!!!*

*The adventurer is the monster. She's stealing the eggs. The monster is the real dame. Look, it's super-clever. Do I need to spell everything out? Jeez.

SHE'S STEALING THE EGGS. THAT'S BAD. SHE'S A MONSTER!

ARRR BOOTY

LOOTZ! from the con!



First and foremost i managed to score couple of original pages from Brandon Graham's awesome and amazing Multiple Warheads comic, the acquisition of said objects being pretty much the reason why i'd gone to the con in the first place. He had a few pages from King City, a.k.a. The-Best-Comic-Book-In-The-World, but i'd run out of money at that point and getting Brandon's trademark puns, Sexica, Nikoli, Vladamir, quimmy slugs (yum) and a sentient angry weaponized kettle (or more accurately a kettle-ized weapon) on one page was gonna be hard to beat.

also, in no particular order, 'cos they're all also awesome and amazing: a sketchcover of Fiona and Cake from Jab, a couple of mini Octopus Pie collections and a print from Meredith Gran (as well as her whole run on the Adventure Time comicbook which i'd somehow managed to miss), a whole bunch of awesome and amazing sketchbooks from Akio Segawa, David Ryan Paul, J. Scott Campbell, Gigi D.G., Elsa Chang and Dustin Ngunen, a book of awesome and amazing caricatures by Tomas Overbai, an amazing and awesome (i'll stop doing that now) print by Brittney Lee, another print and a comic book from the awesome and amazing (i lied) Melissa Pagluica, some awesome and amazing stickers and postcards from James Franzen a.k.a. GoshaDole, an awesome and amazing (and cute) print of a gelatinous cube by Mikeatron!, and finally a whole bunch of artbooks and prints from the awesome and amazing and awesome Mike Yamada and Victoria Ying.

There's also the Monsters and Dames book featuring the awesome and amazing work of my pals Jin Shin, Scott 'CrayonMonsters' Kikuta and Ken 'Enfu' Taya. 

oh, and i also got to meet Brom and Larry Elmore, who are both thoroughly nice chaps as well as being (obviously) awesome and amazing.



I even managed to sell a few sketchbooks of my own. But more on that later.

Gulp!

"Friends, friends, friends! There's no need for this to get unpleasant! We know that you know that you know that we know that you know the coordinates to the fabled lost PrimeVault of the Cashtastic Wealthlings, and all we ask is that you share it with us. Failing that, all we ask is that you provide a satisfying snack for Mr Tako and his coleoideal cohorts here. The decision is entirely up to you!"



This was one of my entries for Spectrum this year, along with my Monsters and Dames pic for Emerald City Comic Con. Which is coming up pretty soon now, i believe. huh. i should probably check when that is.

stuff in print!

i got stuff! stuff in a book! no, scratch that...stuff in two books! golly.

First up is my entry for next year's Monsters & Dames artbook, which comes out at Emerald City ComicCon. Proceeds go to help Seattle Children's Hospital, so go buy a copy when it's published next March. I also managed to get one of last year's Vigil Nights pics into this year's Spectrum 19 annual (although to be honest i preferred the big lizard pic. hmph.). I've been trying to get into Spectrum for absolutely yonks, so i'm well chuffed. Thanks to Jordan Lamarre-Wan (who also got in!) for the expert photography.

Some old ships

Still got a few more DS2 pics to post up, but i just need to post this up here for a bit.

It's just some rough spaceship designs from ages and ages ago, back when i was a bright-eyed bushy-tailed young concept artist and i still drew things on paper. I'm posting this up because i'm gonna try to be getting back into a bit of ship design in the coming months with an eye to making some user-generated content for Chris Robert's new game Star Citizen, assuming it gets funded of course (fingers crossed). I'm gonna have my own shipyard, you'll see! and everyone will buy my fighters! 'cos they're gonna be awesome and shaped a bit like birds! yeah!
