The Last Bookstore, San Francisco, CA
Inspired by Worthington Libraries: Blind Date with a Book!
We started with ~40 books. Two hours later, all but four had found homes with library patrons (sorry, Flush, Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, Persepolis, and The ThingsThey Carried, they don’t know what they’re missing).
I adore this one with all my heart!
Craft 1.24 by João M.P. Lemos
You can bid on this prettiness or one of the other ones by artists like Cory Godbey, Mike Mignoal and Allen Williams.
This one is my favorite though.

From April the 16th to May the 18th, the Society of Illustrators, in New York, will host the 8th MicroVisions, an exhibition of pieces created and donated by 13 illustrators from all over the world. All the pieces, created under 5x7 inches, will be auctioned on eBay (from April 23rd to May 2nd) with all of the proceeds going to the Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Fund. Besides how noble the cause, it is also a huge honor to exhibit my work side by side with the other invited artists, among whom I am lucky enough to find good friends and great influences.
Yesterday I had an art block so I thought of something colorful I could draw to cheer myself up. So here it is, a tiny Sugar Rush-me:) I wanted to join in too and guess what! It was so much fun to draw!:D Ouhh, I’m such a copycat:/ And I still don’t have a name for my little racer… any suggestions?:)
The only thing is that I’m not really into candy and sweets, except for dango, black licorice wheels and japanese Milky candy. I guess it’s not supposed to drive…haha:)
Hey, it’s me! I make comics and sit inside the mac photobooth.

Project 5! Trying to find a better equilibrium between traditional media mark-making and digital overpainting. I traded alliances from Hot press paper to cold press for this one. It felt so weird painting on felty paper again, but I wanted a little more tooth to grab onto. My friend Glacie suggested I try painting in some of the lines with brush this time, and I haven’t got the steadiest hand for that : S
All in all this really opened up. Im very worried it’s too soft, but it feels like a better direction, and it was a lot less predictable/more exciting than it’s predecessors in terms of how it felt working through it. I’m also really interested to see how it prints, since the others were kind of murky.
Project 6 is next, and I’ve designed a few other drawings that I’ll be using to further explore this development as well. For now, giant cat-fish! And thanks so much to everybody who’s been following along with my progress on these. Your notes have been so encouraging throughout this whole weird process thing, so yeah, thank you so, so much!!

So, I remade the TARDIS cupcakes which I made last year. I’m really impressed with my progress, even though I still like the overall look of the cupcakes the first time round.
I guess it’s kind of like when they re-make a classic movie. The revamp is awesome and has better technology to make it look damn cool, but it’s never really going to live up to or surpass the feeling and success of the original.
You know what would be cool? If you added your own thoughts to this. What do you think of the new ones? Which do you prefer? If I were to continue this, and made them AGAIN next year, what could I do to make them the absolute most awesome TARDIS cakes there have ever been? Come on, I’m a drama student, I can take your thoughts on this.
Thanks to all who stopped by our table at the MoCCA Arts Festival this weekend! We — Vera Greentea, Justin Rivers & Courtney Zell, Ray Sumser, Aaron Diaz, and myself, Jamie Tanner — had a great time talking Comics & Kickstarter — can’t wait to see all the projects from awesome cartoonists who said they wanted to launch one.
Stages and finish for yet another part of Project 4. One more to go!
This weekend: MoCCA Arts Festival!
I’ll be there, hosting a little Kickstarter table. I’ll of course be gently pushing my own book THE BLACK WELL further out into the big, scary world. Plus I’ll be welcoming some other Kickstarter comics creators to show off their awesome work as well. Joining me over the course of the weekend:
Stop by and say hello, why don’t you?
PAPA: An incredibly awesome comics collection, created by artists known for their work on Diablo and Fraggle Rock and an awesomely crazy gorgeous game called Sidius Nova
Another piece of Project 4.
I painted back into this one much more aggressively than I did the last, since the pencils didn’t seem to hold up as well as i’d hoped after taking a little break away from it. Now I kind of want to go over that first one, one more time, just to see if It can’t be pushed a bit harder. If I have time to spare at the end of this set, I may just.
Two to go!
