2014 has been my busiest year yet, and there’s still plenty to be done over the next week!
Thanks for sticking with me and for supporting me and my work. It means so much to me to know that all the hours I’ve spent in my sketchbook and on the computer mean something to someone besides myself.
Here’s a look back at some of what I made/worked on/participated in this year…
Artwork for Cory Mon‘s newest album, “North”.
Illustrated ad for Doublesix Dice.
Life, the Universe and Everything symposium on Literature and Art (apologies for the old photo). I sold out of my books, Upside Down: A Vampire Tale and Rumpus on the Run! SO COOL!
I was invited to table and speak at Salt Lake Comic Con Fan X.
Working with Dragons Keep in Provo, we launched a monthly comic jam. We’ve now met 7 times and plan to continue through 2015!
Performed the song “Chance” at Muse Music with Drew Danburry as part of his For All The Girls release.
Made this Wolverine Is The Snikt t-shirt.
I was invited to table at and create the posters/flyers/badges for the Alt Press Fest, which was a blast!
Made this bonkers look-n-find illustration for Stay Wild Magazine.
My mermaids are on shower curtains. So…that’s weird.
I made a mess in my backyard.
I made a teeny-bitsy comic called Ghosties, with a single panel on each page.
I made a big ol’ newspaper-sized comic (really!) about a boy that discovers The Devil’s Footprints.
I taught my second five-day comics workshop at Higher Ground Learning and it was amazing!
I made a bunch of 1 Minute Drawings, including this punk robot.
I saw my home town from 10k feet.
I illustrated a hilarious and informative book about food, called Rude Dude’s Book of Food, written by Tim J. Meyers.
I illustrated a book called 10 Little Monsters Visit Oregon, written by Rick Walton.
I made a 4-page comic with writers Jason Wong and Dave Scheidt, starring a giant baby.
I signed books at Barnes & Noble. I ALSO SIGNED A NOOK! SEE?
I made a book with Dave Scheidt called Spooky Sleepover, which has been read by both dogs and cats!
I introduced the cover for my newest book project with Top Shelf, Upside Down: A Hatful of Spells (Fall 2015).
I started a webcomic with D. Bradford Gambles, Mitch Parker, and Drea Hatch, called A Donut’s Tale.
I made a t-shirt for musician Joshua James.
I made a 4-page comic with writer Erick Freitas for Feral NYC.
I made some illustrations for Narratively.
Thank you for helping to make my 2014 such a great year!
If you’ve stopped to check out my work: thank you. If you’ve picked up one of my books from the store or library: thank you. If you’ve taken the time to say hi to me at an event: thank you. If you’re an artist/writer that’s been in touch to talk about making more of the work you want to make: thank you. You all help to keep me pushing forward and you’ve helped me to think that I might be of use to someone, after all. Thank you.
I’m in the thick of several projects due for release in 2015. Keep watching this blog for more illustrations, books, comics, and more!
