Ananth and I are gonna be at Small Press Expo in Bethesda, MD this weekend! Look for us at table #W-33 against the back wall! We’re sharin’ a table with our good bro Magnolia who does the super rad comic Monster Pulse.
We’ll have copies of Johnny Wander #1-3, Adventure Time: Candy Capers #1-3, the Exquisite Beast, my B9 Kingdom art books, and a buncha prints, originals, totes and stickers! Hopefully we’ll see you there!
I drew this picture of my and Ananth’s Animal Crossing characters a while back and then kinda forgot about it. (I fiddled with Howl’s skin color so he looks more like Ananth, shhh.) We’re both wearing outfits I designed in the game; a collared shirt and sweater on Aido and a Hell’s Varsity jacket on Howl (it says 666 on the back). I keep on meaning to nab the QR codes for these guys and put them somewhere online.
Woa woa woa guys! It looks like Adventure Time: Candy Capers Issue #1 is available in stores today?? This is gonna be a 6-issue miniseries written by myself and Ananth and drawn by the super talented Ian McGinty.

Apparently today is National Lucky Penny day? OH HEY THAT IS THE NAME OF THE BOOK I AM WORKING ON! Sometimes I think about how nice it would be if this book was printed in full color. Maybe it will become very popular and warrant a full-color job a la Scott Pilgrim and someone else will color the whole thing for me.
Still in Japan for a few more days, but I put this together right before I left so I’m gonna post it now for you guys!
Here’s the Kawaii design, from initial concept to sketch, color mockup, and finished design. I’m really glad it resonated with people! The number of people who stated a desire to get it as a tattoo was astounding (which I’m cool with by the way, please send me photos if you get it done!) Anyway, thanks guys!
Omigosh I can finally share this! At SPX last year I was asked to draw something including the words “TOO KAWAII TO LIVE, TOO SUGOI TO DIE.” Afterwards, Ananth and I asked if we could elaborate on the sketch and make it into some sorta design and then I did.
We posted the second half of my 2013 hourly comics over at Johnny Wander! Man, I was extra boring this year. Although this is pretty much what my average day looks like; work a lot and don’t leave the apartment.
We’re doing a release party for Johnny Wander V3: Ballad of Laundry Cat at Bergen St. Comics! I think we’ll have a projector set up - the plan is to do some drawing games with you guys! We’ll have the books and probably some other stuff - hope you can make it!
