Here’s how we made the exquisite beast corpse!  Check the captions for commentary.

There are only a few hours left to preorder the Exquisite Beast book!!  Please take a gander!  We all worked really hard to make these look as good as possible!

Exquisite corpses are super fun to do!  I think Evan and I made a pretty solid critter, ha ha.

OH GOSH, only 4 hours left in the Kickstarter!!!!  Thank you again to everyone who has supported this project!

Benign Kingdom presents their first collection of themed titles - Capture Creatures, the Exquisite Beast, and Midnite Surprise.

 Capture Creatures - by Becky Dreistadt and Frank Gibson
Inspired by Ken Sugimori’s feat of designing the original 151 Pokemon in a single year Becky Dreistadt and Frank Gibson have created 151 unique creatures, relations, and descriptors. 

The Exquisite Beast - by Evan Dahm and Yuko Ota
A series of illustrations of a monster evolving traded between Yuko and Evan. All illustrations were done with ink and inkwash. 

Midnite Surprise V2 - by KC Green
A collection of material from KC Green’s art blog - midnitesurprise.tumblr.com this collection features a new collection of work featuring original illustrations, comics, and more. 

If you were not previously aware, these fine books are now available for preorder!  Including-but-not-limited-to my and Evan’s collected Exquisite Beast project!

We worked really hard on designing these books and the Exquisite Beast book is hopefully gonna be really lovely, especially the deluxe edition.  We’re shooting for the deluxe cover to be a three-piece done with black faux leather binding over a cloth cover with a screenprinted design, debossed title area, a pasted-on title card.  With a ribbon bookmark.  I’m ridiculously excited. 8D

And it’s gonna be full of weird monsters and that is cool, too!

Benign Kingdom 2013 Dog Process. (final full logo)
Hey guys!  The Benign Kingdom Spring 2013 kickstarter only has a few hours left!  If it reaches $50K, Evan, Becky, KC, and myself will do a fresh new jam poster that will be sent to everyone who receives a physical shipment!  Also this group of artists is so rad, you guys.  I’ve seen these books and they are gorgeous.

Thank you guys so much!!

Maw sticker sheet.
And the final sticker sheet, a gaggle of maws.  The Johnny Wander Kickstarter has one day left!  Aaaa
I think I made an arbitrary “animal group” name for Maws at one point, but can’t remember it.  It was either a cackle or a chatter I think. Maybe a prattle?  A gibber?  A nattering?  I can’t remember anymore.

More Kickstarter Things!

A few more things I’ve designed to be available through the Johnny Wander Kickstarter (which has just over two days left)!  A patch of the Maw logo (to be 2.5”x2.5” and with an iron-on backing) and a solid 1.5” acrylic charm of Rook.

I can’t thank everyone enough for supporting the Kickstarter; pre-ordering, promoting, every little thing has helped!  Ananth and I have been completely humbled by the response we’ve been getting.  Thanks so much, you guys!

Johnny Wander Sticker Sheets!

Everyone who pledged over $50 to the Johnny Wander Kickstarter now gets these three sticker sheets!  While coloring these I spent a lot of time thinking back to my middle school sticker-collecting obsession and the sorts of palettes those stickers used.  (see also: a bunch of Lisa Frank)

Gosh, I cannot thank everyone enough for pledging and promoting this thing!  It’s gone so far beyond everything we ever expected.  Thank you, thank you, thank you. 

(edit: Just so you guys know, the sticker sheets will be available together as a pack in the JW Topatoco store after the Kickstarter!)

Benign Kingdom Dog Painting, Red Panda. Ink wash, some photoshop colors
The second of the Kickstarter Benign Kingdom paintings!  Instead of a dog, we were requested to do a red panda, which was great because red pandas are great.  Here’s my first painting if you missed it!
The Fall 2012 Benign Kingdom Kickstarter is still goin’!  Check it out if you haven’t yet, you should seriously watch the video if anything.  To be honest, I’m pretty surprised no one has pledged for the dog paintings yet!

Benign Kingdom Dog Painting, Farrie. Ink wash, some photoshop colors
I’m pretty sure all the backers of the Spring B9 Kingdom got their paintings, so I’m going to start posting them over here!  One of the top tier rewards was “every artist does a painting of the same dog,” and this backer requested portraits of their keeshond, Farrie.  I put a little color on her for the heck of it.
AND HEY, did you know there’s a NEW Benign Kingdom kickstarter now?  The Fall 2012 collection is up, highlighting the works of Emmy, Anthony, Aaron, and Danielle!  You can get each of them to do a painting of the same dog if you felt so inclined!

Benign Kingdom Cover.  Photoshop.
Hey so, if you’ve ever looked through this blog and thought you’d like an artbook from me, here’s your chance!  Becky, KC, Evan, and myself just put up a Kickstarter for a series of art books called Benign Kingdom.  Each of us did our cover and poster art with the theme "benign kingdom," and I had to take the chance to draw Kaia and Dhio.
Watch the video while you’re there, you can see me nervously fidgeting around a bunch and holding a kitten!
