Society of Illustrators 55

November 28, 2012

The three Jurassic President pieces I created back in April were selected to appear in the upcoming Society of Illustrator’s annual, Illustrators 55. I couldn’t be more thrilled; I’ve been entering my work in Society for several years but this is the first time I’ve had any selected!

Opening reception for the Exhibition of the Sequential/Series, Institutional, Uncommissioned and Moving Image Categories will be January 4, 2013 and will be exhibited until January 26. Hope to see some familiar faces there!

Frobisher Says

October 19, 2012

Awhile back I was commissioned to do some illustration work for a rather peculiar video game for the SONY Vita called Frobisher Says. The brainchild of Richard Hogg and indie developer Honeyslug, Frobisher Says involves playing through a fast-paced sequence of minigames at the command of the titular character. It’s hard to explain, so I suggest watching the appropriately bizarre commercial for the game here:


The first one involves running through Frobisher’s Mansion and finding friends from your Playstation network and leading them to Frobisher’s hot tub.


The second one is a slot machine game, with an unusual twist… I won’t spoil it for you!


The last one, my favorite, is called “Stir My Soups”, and involves rotating the thumb joysticks in the required (usually alternate) direction as Frobisher’s crazy eyes spin around and around.

The game was originally only available in Europe, but I just found out it will be available in the US as of October 23rd! And best of all, it’s free! So if you have a Vita, make sure to grab your free copy.

Right before the craziness of the Pixel Pushers opening, I had a chance to sit down and chat with Jeriaska from Indie Games about three of my favorite subjects: video games, politics, and meat. Read the interview here!

Keyboard Cat Featured on The IT Crowd

July 11, 2010

The Keyboard Cat video I created was turned into a t-shirt and worn by Roy on the latest episode (Season 4, Episode 3) of The IT Crowd! Full of geeky clean humor, The IT Crowd is one of my favorite tv shows, so I couldn’t have been happier to see Roy sporting the shirt with an illustration I created!

Thrillist & The Big Lebowski

June 17, 2010

Thrillist has written up a nice little article about me. It’s always nice when people get all the little pop culture references in my work! And yes, there will be a second edition of Big Lebowski prints coming soon. I’ve given each their own color scheme so as to differentiate them from the first edition. Stay tuned.

Tomorrow night at 6pm is the opening of the Autumn Society’s “8-Bit and Beyond!” show at Brave New Worlds. You can read an interview with myself and two of the other incredibly talented artists here. In addition to the fantastic artwork, Doctor Octoroc will be providing live musical chip tune entertainment, playing music from classic video games, 8-bit covers of 80s television shows (from his upcoming “After These Messages” album), as well as some originals. There will be a “name that tune” contest too, so you just might score a copy of his latest album. Get there early!

My piece is title “Mushroom Recession” and you can read more about it here and here.
