Peck and Article!

See this? I sent it to my old, favorite roommate for his birthday. It’s his face, and inside it’s the character he created, Rico Sanchez. I’d put up a picture of him wearing it, but the bum hasn’t sent me one yet. To be fair, it’s his senior year at Carleton, so life is definitely not relaxed. Here’s the design on its own:

It is, of course, highly influenced by this famous cover by Charles Burns. I hadn’t seen it in a couple years, but as I was drawing this piece, it was definitely in the back of my mind.

When I looked at the Burns after I’d printed Peck, I was surprised at how close the placement was. I guess it had a bigger effect on me then I thought it did!

I wrote an article for Hooded Utilitarian that generated a good amount of discussion! If you haven’t yet, please click over!

Other than that, nothing much is going on. Working on more shirts, and comics for Skuds. And comics of my own, of course. I’ll post pictures, someday. I just transitioned to Windows 8, and am getting used to that.

Goings on…

It’s been a while!

I’m now employed, working for the Ann Arbor T-Shirt Company in Ann Arbor MI. I’m doing sales and managing their Ypsilanti storefront, which is a lot of fun. Lots of day to day art stuff, which is all I could ask for in a full-time job. Lucky lucky lucky.

I’ve been so quiet on the comics front, I know! I’m halftoning a story for Skuds McKinley, and still working hard on a story that Owen wrote. It’s my plan to get a small anthology out soon, because I can’t not do comics. I’m working on another article for Hooded Utilitarian too, which will be better written and less choppy, so look out for that.

In the meantime, don’t forget, you can look here at the comics I’ve done in the past! And if you haven’t already, look at the new issue of the Graphic, done since I graduated! I’m so happy and proud of them.

I’ll post soon, I will, I will, I will.
