I’m moving, so my life looks like this right now. No art for a bit.
Hey guys, my remaining comics are now for sale HERE IN MY ETSY SHOP.
I don’t have that many left, so I also threw in some misprints at a lower price. If you wanted one, I hope you get one! If not, I’ll be reprinting soon (I promise)
…and it looks like we are sold out. Sorry, folks who missed out!
Holy moly, moccafestnyc was great this year! Big thanks to everyone who came out and bought my books and prints (way more than I thought would)! Also all you other cartoonists and creators. So great! Also these monster fish skeletons.
For those of you who weren’t there, I have some leftover books, including my Tolkien’s Ainulindalë, but not a lot. I’ll be adding them to my Etsy store TOMORROW AT 8PM CENTRAL, so if you want to get one, be there or just wait till I print more for torontocomics fest.
the-caretaker asked: Hey I wanted to ask if you would be willing to sell prints of your two awesome Gundam arts? I would really like to have them on my wall and I don't live anywhere close to NYC. :c
I’ll for sure have them online soon, just not before NYC. Stay tuned! There will probably be a few more before I get bored of doing them, too.
I’m so jazzed about Mobile Suit Gundam right now that I spent today making another one instead of doing my taxes. This one is the RX-78-2 Gundam.
Also I decided that I’ll be selling this one and Char’s Zaku as a set of prints starting at MoCCA in NYC this weekend. Come snag ‘em and say whassup!
I wanted to experiment in style and see if I could do that cool thing with flat colors and shapes that a lot of you people do that I’ve never quite been able to do. I’ve also been watching a lot of Mobile Suit Gundam, so I made this homage to my favorite pink robot: Char Aznable’s Zaku II.
So what do you think? Like? If so, I might make a set of these (with some other mobile suits from the series) and sell them as fancy-dan prints.
rupine asked: hello! what conventions are you going to this year? i'd love to see you at c2e2 and pick up some of your work there!
There may be others, but this is my confirmed schedule!
pippinforthewin asked: I'm sure you've been asked this a lot, but I'm dying to buy a watercolor Ainulindalë book. Are you planning on printing it? Or are you printing it currently? The whole chapter was incredible, and I'd love to buy a copy.
Soon! Maybe. I’m trying to line up a good way to print enough copies to keep up with demand. With convention season coming up, I’m probably going to start with a run of about 350 and see where that gets me. Printing is hard, you guys.
Hey, my Society6 page is having a really great sale right now. You get free shipping PLUS $5 off all prints! I took the opportunity to add a bunch of new pieces for you to get your mitts on. So go buy some prints and help me pay for my new apartment.

dumplingheart asked: Hi, we met at SPX last year, and you showed me a fountain-pen (I think) you used for the illustration with the girl standing in front of a cave with a lot of foliage, and I've recently been trying to figure out what pen it was to no avail! Any chance you know what I'm talking about? Sorry I know this is rather vague haha.
Oh, good question! That would be the Kuretake Zig Letter Pen. It makes a line somewhere between a brush and a G-Nib, so its really nice for sketching. The bonus is that its super duper cheap and customizable. The body comes in like a thousand colors and there are a bunch of different types of refills, but you have to buy everything individually.
I made this piece to test it out when I first got it. I immediately realized that the ink is about the exact opposite of water safe, so don’t use it if you’re a fan of wet media like me. So to color this, I light tabled watercolor onto a separate sheet. The result was some of the loosest colors I’ve ever done which is pretty far away from my usual style.
