Normal School Issue 4 is OUT!

Look out for this thing at a newsstand near you!  I just heard from good ol' T-dog up in Seattle that it is out and on the shelves.  He is an eye witness.  I made this cover artwork and also did some spot illustrations inside of there....  I haven't seen it yet myself.  I can't wait to read Justin Hocking's story!

FUNDRAISER FOR THE FLORESTINE COLLECTION: 8 pm, Saturday, April 24. Helen Hill was an experimental filmmaker and film teacher who made many fun, inspiring, and original short films. At the time of her murder in New Orleans in January 2007, Helen was working on The Florestine Collection, a thirty-minute animation and live action documentary about 100 hand-sewn dresses she found in the trash on the side of the road. Her husband Paul Gailiunas decided to finish the movie as a 16 mm film and needs to raise funds for the last steps in the filmmaking process. Please join us to see a fifteen-minute preview of The Florestine Collection, as well as other short experimental films by Helen and several of her filmmaking friends. Copies of a DVD compilation of Helen's films will be on sale. Kids are welcome!

Just finished this cover art for the new YETI!

I'll let ya know when it's available!
For now you can have a look at some past issues.
It's quite a treasure trove.

Landscape Altered Episode 1 is up!

I had a really great time at NOVA!  Thanks to everybody who came to my workshop.  NOVA is a really inspiring school.  What lucky rascals!  While I was up in Seattle, I had the great honor of making 3 collaborative flipbooks with 2 of my favorite humans, Stefan Gruber and Tim Miller.  The trilogy is called EYE OPENERS and hopefully will be printed in time for Stumptown Comicfest.  They are wild eye rides.
HERE is the first episode of Kai's fabulous new Landscape Altered series.. for which I made some animated titles:
