2013 Yearly Art Meme. (2012 • 2011 • 2010)
Whew, nearly forgot to to this one!  2013 was a year for property work; I did a bunch of freelance gigs for Valve, Homestuck, Namco-Bandai, and Adventure Time.  Looking at all this lined up, you can see this gradual shift over the middle of the year from muted tones with primary colors to neon and secondary colors.  Ha ha ha oops.
I’ve been kind of quiet this month, sorry!  I’ve been doing some cool design work that I’ll hopefully be able to show off soon!

Adventure Time: Candy Capers 5 cover (rejected).  Brush and ink, photohop.
Candy Capers #5 comes out today!  Tessa Stone did the second half of the issue and let-me-tell-you, both she and Ian knocked it out of the park.  Ananth and I have been pleased as punch with how this series has been shaping up.  Infinite thanks to our letterer Hannah, colorist Maarta, and our awesome editor Shannon.
I’m bummed this cover was rejected, but hopefully it will be included in the collected trade paperback!

Candy Capers Issue 3 Cover: Variant A.  brush and ink, photoshop.
Oh dang, Adventure Time: Candy Capers is out TODAY!  Let-me-tell-you, I went through like 4 or 5 different thumbnails to make Lemongrab as un-terrifying as possible.
The first half of the issue was drawn by Evan!  He did an incredible job, especially considering the number of butts we forced him to draw.  The second half returns to Ian McGinty who, as always, is perfect in every way and a pleasure to work with.  Lettering by Hannah Nance Partlow and colors by Maarta Laiho, both of whom are the irreplaceable glue that keeps this book together.  And love to our editor Shannon forever.

2012 Monthly Art Meme. (2011 • 2010)
I did a lot of art this year!  Unfortunately, most of it is unpublished and/or for unannounced projects.  And while I prefer to put this yearly meme together with exclusively private non-fanart work, a good deal of fanart/published/professional work made its way into the spread.
I would like for 2013 to be a “keep your head down, work work work and don’t stop” year, though that was the intention for last year and I didn’t get half the things done last year I wanted.  Or maybe I keep unrealistic expectations of myself.
Funny how the year both opened and ended with Dhio and Kaia!  Maybe I should do another portrait of them before the month is over.

Marceline and Simon.  Photoshop.
So, uh, Adventure Time made me real sad.  Tumblr feelings, man.  I’m such a sucker for maternal/paternal themes, yeesh.  Be careful of those Adventure Time episodes with songs, that’s where 90% of the character development happens.  I’d normally put this up tomorrow to spread out posts, but I’d probably get embarrassed and chicken out.
Feeeeeelings.

Yuko and Ananth Were Eaten by Wolves.  photoshop.
This was the portrait I drew of Ananth and myself to go with our Adventure Time short (Marceline and the Scream Queens #4, in stores now!)!  We were asked for a drawing with an Adventure Time character, and since Thank You is one of my favorite episodes, I drew some fire wolves.  In hindsight I really should’ve drawn it with more contrast and less detail, but it was still really fun to do.
And speaking of Adventure Time, did you guys see I Remember You?  Whatta beautiful punch in the gut, wowee.

Adventure Time Cover!  Photoshop.

Oh mans you guys, the next round of Adventure Time covers were announced!  And I did one!  Marceline and the Scream Queens by Meredith Gran is coming out next month and I couldn’t be more excited! (though my cover won’t be coming out ‘til September)

I recently bought a giant book of gig posters and wanted to do something in that heavily designed, kind of dirty screen-printed style.  It was such a blast putting this together!

The poster to the left is the final version, and the one on the right is a more sinister alt.
