A New Fun Page in Penthouse’s December Issue

Out this month is the December issue of Penthouse, and inside as always you’ll find my monthly “Fun Page.”  This month’s piece celebrates what the founding fathers couldn’t possibly have imagined when they were drawing things up… It feels good, it feels right, it feels like Saturday night.  Check it out.

Big Board Spread in Newest Monster Children Issue

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.

New, Horrible Piece for Monster Children

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.
