1 More Flyer, 2 More Ghosts

Here's the second of the two flyers I've been working on this week. This one's for an amazing show at the Trunk Space featuring Phoenix veterans, "Andrew Jackson Jihad" and my new favorite band, "ROAR." Don't miss it!



















Go to the show and make sure you pick up ROAR's "I Can't Handle Change" EP. You'll thank me.

Get Ready For Some New Flyers

The fall semester is over, so now I can get back to making things for people instead of school. Here's one of two flyers I'm working on right now.



















If you're in San Francisco on the 29th you should go to this show. And if you aren't, than it's time to round up some friends and snacks and make a trip out there to see The Yellow Dress. You'll be happy, and it'll make you and your friends better people.

PS. This isn't the last of the ghosts.

Zelda Portraits

Maybe you knew this, and maybe you didn't, but I'm a big Legend of Zelda fan. So in honor of something I like, and some people I like, I made these portraits of me and some friends as Zelda characters. Enjoy. If you want to.


















Me as Tingle.


















Matt as a Goron.


















Alex as Makar.

Mustache















This was made to remind me of what I look like in those moments when I think, "Maybe I should get rid of my mustache." This way I won't be surprised.

Jeff Goldblum's Essence. In Handmade Notebook Form.










I teamed up with my friend, Tiffany Parker, to create these nifty Jeff Goldblum note books. Each notebook was cut, pressed and hand sewn by Tiffany, I drew the portrait of Mr. Goldblum, and together we screen printed the image onto each notebook. We're gonna make some more and sell them, If you want one let me know, and I'll see what I can do.

The .gif That Keeps on .giffing

It's no secret, to some of you, that I love making animated .gif files. It's a great way to spend time doing something stupid instead of doing something worth while. So here are a few the .gif's I've made recently. They're my .gif to you.

Videos!?!

So the other day, out of boredom, I was looking through all the videos that were taking up space on my camera. I decided to move it all over to my external hard drive, and do something with some of it. This is that something:

I've made a huge mistake...

So the first batch of $2 drawings are out in the world, either finding there way to their new homes, or settling in on someone's wall. But until now I forgot about the whole, "post it on my blog for everyone to see." So if you guys could scan and email me the drawings, that'd be awesome. Until then, here's a drawing that my friend Brianna came up with. It's pretty self-explanatory...
