Of Fairs and Beards

I've said this elsewhere, but the Peddler's Fair last month was a blast.  Thanks to all who were able to visit, and thanks for the good vibes from those who couldn't!  On an unrelated note, here's a gross little black and white comic thing.

The Peddler's Fair Cometh!

The Benicia Peddler's Fair is only 34 hours away! Excitement! Here's a gaggle of bro-magnons taking down a pizzadon!


I've also made a series of landscapes, since the Benicia locals seem to like that kind of stuff.



For driving directions and other information on the Fair, visit http://www.beniciapeddlersfair.org/.

Peddler's Fair Bookmarks!



I'll have not one, not two, but THREE differently designed bookmarks for sale at the Benicia Peddler's Fair this year! Stop on by, and get one free with any non-bookmark order, one on its own for $.50, or a pack of three for only $1.00!

Etsy Store Update

My current Etsy listings end on the 19th, so I've lowered prices on originals. I've also reduced international shipping fees and enabled the "request custom item" button, because both seemed like good ideas.

A Man Said to the Universe



I love this poem so much. On one hand, it's got the kind of gravitas that evokes a, "Dude, that's so metal!" response, and on the other, it's funny in a supremely dry manner.

Grandma Warrior



Somewhat inspired by Gran'ma Ben from Jeff Smith's "Bone" series.

Teensy Tiny Storefront Update

I'm now selling gallery-quality prints via Society 6, as well as original painted and inked illustrations via Etsy! Offering prints through S6 is looking particularly exciting, since they use far better equipment and inks than what I can muster at home with my dinky little consumer-quality printer. Their ability to print at sizes larger than 8.5"x11" is mighty fine, as well. On a related note, if there are any works that aren't currently posted to either S6 or Etsy that you'd like to get your hands on, then please let me know. Thanks!

Froud Orlock and a Hamster Pirate



These were made for some friends' birthdays this year. I've also been working on concept designs for a comics project recently, and I should be able to share a few of them later on this year. Fun times!

Oh, one more thing! I've started a mirror of this blog over at Tumblr! At this point, it's really more of a "let's see what happens" kind of experiment, but it could be useful, methinks.

Sketches and Speedies




Here's some stuff from earlier in the month. Cthulhu and (what is likely a very unorthodox version of) Dagon were for a quick web project, and the Street Fighter/My Little Pony mashups were for fun.
