So, I've just posted up some of the efforts from my first published kid's book work, Snowmobile. If you enjoy riding snowmobiles or know a young feller who does that also happens to be learning to read, you might want to buy this book on Amazon. The experience of making the illustrations was far from perfect, but I'm happy to have my foot (or at least one crushed toe) in the door of the publishing world.
Yes, it's been a bajillion years since my last post. This is primarily because I got an awesome day job in Chicago. I'm now Jay Ryan's official, solo printer and assistant at a shop called The Bird Machine. Jay is kind of famous in gig poster making circles, so this job continues to be a great opportunity to meet awesome artists and musicians. If you don't know of him, go to [link]
to check out his weird sense of humor, cute animals, and his consistently clear stylistic voice and handmade design aesthetic. We/I print posters with many layers and often in relatively large editions, so it's been a little exhausting and it's definitely cut into my efforts to produce more personal work... that plus getting in the habit of streaming way too much Star Trek and other such geekery on the internet.
But I'm recommitting myself to it all, working on getting a blog started (it's gonna be goooood, I think), dabbling with an L.A. based buddy on a collaborative project, and even thinking about an etsy store for screen prints and any other quirky objects that my imagination spits out. Sleep is for the weak, right?
To start with, I made a Facebook page a little while ago. As lazy as it might sound, it really is easier to connect to people from there and it feels less laborious trying to be all social and promote-y than here. So if you like my work and sensibilities, please 'like' my page on Facebook, and get a slightly closer peek into my little world. Thanks. Every little 'like' counts![link]
If this is offensive to you, my only advice is to go fight Mark Zuckerberg to the death, then travel the world from one residence to the next, stealing computers of any kind, locking them in impenetrable safes that you eventually drop into the Mariana Trench, into which you would drop an atomic bomb once your task was complete, finally steering the whole planet into a black hole. Cheers, supervillans!
