Covered Toronto

Good News, a submission I sent in to Covered a month or so ago got accepted! Covered, for those who don't know, is an excellent blog where artists are invited to redraw classic comic book covers in their style.
I chose Justice league of America #1.
My cover is going to be posted on the site on August 9th, make sure you check it out. For anyone who misses it I'll be sure and upload the image to flickr after it goes up on Covered.

In other news, I've been hearing good things about my mini-comic, I just need to stop being lazy and get them into the stores.
Also I hope you check out the illustration I just finished called "party monsters" it's my trademark caustic wit taking a stab at hipster culture  - which I've been fixated on lately.

In non-art news, I just got back from Toronto, where some friends and I saw Broken Social Scene, among others. It was amazing. After spending only 2 days there it's already on my list of possible places to move after school.

Here's a vertigo-inducing clip of "Lover's Spit" that somebody filmed.

Oodles of Doodles (She & Him @ Millenium Park Chicago, July 7, 2010) / Batcave Beach!

Lets all put on sundresses and deep v-necks and meet up on our beachcruisers in millennium park at 7:00! If you get there early enough we can have a vegan picnic!

Today was the free She & Him concert at Millennium Park, and there were too many people there!

I used the opportunity to doodle, just like last time. Hope you enjoy.

I just realized i wrote "your" instead of "you're" - sorry those of you who dig proper grammar.

Hope you enjoy these, whoever you are.

Speaking of enjoyment and all things twee and independent. You should check out "Batcave Beach" a new series from up-and-coming comic artists Aaron Whitaker and Melinda Tracy Boyce. I did an illustration for their band, The Jellyfish Bandits a few months ago. Batcave Beach is their comic collaboration and it's awesome. Chapter One is out know... for more information, follow the link to their website:

News! If you're a fan (someone who simply pays attention to this, and or flickr (the biggest fans check both)) you've probably noticed I posted some pictures of paintings. They were, with the exception of the luchadores, done a year ago(?) as assignments in contemporary issues in painting. People seem to like them, what do you think?

More News! I got fed up with minuteman press and called them today to be all like RE:what the fuck? They said I can pick up my order ("reasons why a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is better than my ex-girlfriend") after noon tomorrow. Lets hope they turned out alright!
