New Space Cadets release!

Lyterian, Chambers of Apogee is the sixth album cover I've drawn for Space Cadets and the first full color one. It's a great album. I listened to it over and over again while I drew the cover and I feel like the music really seeped into the imagery. I also drew a new color logo image. Can't wait to get the the vinyl in the mail from London!

Today at the Thought Cloud Factory

There's some new woodcuts in progress, propped around my studio studio right now. I haven't really made new wood pieces since my show at Giant Robot in July. Ideally I want to always have a couple in the works. The bottom photo is my Drawing A Day book that I started last Christmas. Almost done!

I started a tumblr site a little while ago, mostly because I found a format option where you can show pictures really big on the screen.  I thought it'd be a good way to show some art up close and personal. This blog will still be the place where I have all my news and writings and such, but it's fun to have  this other place to put things. I've also been discovering a lot of great art through the whole weird interconnectedness thing that happens there. I've been adding a lot of new stuff to my screen saver inspirational slide show.

Something on my drawing table right now.

Google eyes and ghost statues

Coming across stuff like this just warms my heart. Finding these expertly placed google eyes in Helena, Montana and well tailored ghost sheets on a statue of George Washington in Portland, Oregon were both reaffirming experiences for me. Thank you, people. Thank you.

Short Run was Awesome

It was a fast, crazy, and fun trip. And it was already a week ago. I'm bad at recapping my excursions but you can read a nice write up about Short Run that Sean Ford wrote for the Secret Acres Blog if you like. He describes it pretty well. Short Run is a small but solid alternative comics show with a strong focus on community. I'm glad I made the trip. You can actually see Sean and I off to the left in the photo above. You can also see the always awesome Sean Christensen in his amazing teal blue pants. And look, there's Tim Root and Chris Cilla slinging their amazing weirdo comics. There were free haircuts going on behind me, huge paper and art supplies for doodling, and comics and animation performances. Basically the kind of stuff that should be going on every weekend, everywhere. Huge thanks to Eroyn Franklin for letting me crash in her living room and to everyone I met and talked to.

Interview with The Comics Journal

I did a phone interview with Marc Sobel from the Comics Journal a couple of months ago and it can be read here now. I've never done a telephone interview before, but Mark was great, in depth, and easy to talk to. I climbed a tree next to a pond near my house and talked to him for 2 hours strait. He later transcribed it all into words and  there was something surreal about reading a conversation that was originally spoken aloud. I was given the option to edit anything that i said, but decided to leave it. It felt more pure that way. It definitely focuses on a whole different side of things than the other interviews I've been doing lately. We got into childhood memories, early experiences with art, the psychological experience of  art making, and so much more. Thanks for talking, Mark!
