Out now is issue 48 of Monster Children, and Stereo co-founder Jason Lee is the Guest Editor. I was asked to compile my favorite J Lee decks of all time, along with Mark McKee, Sean Cliver, Andy Jenkins, Christian Cooper and Chris Pastras, and the result was a four page piece where we all took turns talking about the fun we had developing graphics at our various companies with the man of the hour, Jason Lee.

As part of my ongoing monthly observance of weird and dopey holidays for Monster Children, I present to you September’s holiday, International Mung Day. Its truly repulsive, and I take no responsibility for this, I blame Jason Crombie, MC’s editor in chief, who invented the holiday and penned the accompanying article. To see the combined article and illustration in all their ghastly glory, go to http://www.monsterchildren.com/38412/international-mung-day/ This might be the worst piece of art i’ve ever done, and that’s really saying something.
