I just finished up a piece for Tait Howard's upcoming zine about some game called “Super Mario Cars”.  I did my illustration on Frappe Snowland.  Man, those snowmen are a pain!

Check it out!  Here’s the cover I did for the upcoming Regular Show: Skips #5!  I love kaiju cross-section drawings, so I was super pumped when they went with this idea that I had!  I think the issue comes out in March, so keep your eyes peeled!

I’ve started working on my new comic!  It’s called Fight Frogs, and it’s your average mutant-frog-men-who-are-obsessed-with-hot-dogs-rumbling-with-other-gangs-in-a-post-apocalyptic-wasteland story.  I’ll be posting progress as it comes, but here are a few character designs for now.  My plan is to release it at this year’s Small Press Expo!

I was digging around my closet the other day and found out that I’ve got a few copies of Executioner and Friend: Collected Short Comics left for sale! I’ve got like 8 left and they’ll never be reprinted, so act fast!  I’ve put them on my store, so if you’d like to find out what a Buff Slime and a Dumb Slime are good for, then click HERE to grab your copy!

Happy Halloween doods!  Don’t forget to barf up some ectoplasm while you’re partying hard!

This week I got to work on one of the coolest assignments I’ve had in a while!  I designed, and Pizza Party Printing printed, the poster for Italian horror prog-rock legends Goblin’s Baltimore show on their first North American tour ever!  They’re the guys that did the soundtracks to Dawn of the Dead, Suspiria, Deep Red, etc.  This print is limited to 66 copies sold at the show and is 4 colors on metallic blood red paper!  So stoked about this one!!!

wemakebelieve asked: You gotta do more Book of the New Sun stuff! I am in absolute love with those books!

Oh man, Book of the New Sun is for real my favorite series of books ever.  Well, those and Book of the Long Sun are kind of tied.  I’m planning on doing some more drawings from them in the future, so keep your eyes peeled!

illseabass asked: Dear Jimmy, what places do you recommend to get booklets and books printed? Thanks!

I’ve been printing my stuff through a shop called Work Printing (www.workprinting.com) which is a printer who is local to Baltimore. They’re quick and affordable, and produce great prints!  I’d recommend them all the way.

tonyhell asked: I love the Phantasm 2 shirt design you did! Any chance I could buy one from you?

Thanks!  Funny enough, that’s the only shirt that I designed for one of those movie nights that we never ended up printing!  We had a hurricane the same weekend that it was supposed to play so we had to postpone it and then we never got around to doing it.  Sorry!

hillbillywolf asked: Did you do any work on the Lewis Trondheim comic "Dungeon"?

Whoa!  This one has been sitting here for a while!  Sorry I didn’t answer sooner!

I WISH man!  Dungeon is one of my all time favorite comics!
