Boba Fat?

I'm working on a new illustration...some might say it's a public service announcement.  Boba is so delicious, but the carbs will plump you like no other.  Beware.  Or be wearing a larger size soon enough!

Fairly Odd Racers

The studio is doing a big Mario Kart 8 competition, and the finals are today.  I decided to predict the outcome.

With no bias whatsoever....

Happy Pantry: Almost Alliterative Alphabet Book - the Letter K

K is for Kissable Kettle.

Just in time for Memorial Day.  Hopefully you're as kissable as our kettle...although I don't know why someone would kiss a kettle.  Maybe if you're boiling water...then that kettle is hot stuff!

Happy Pantry: M is for Manic Mug

Coffee is a big part of our lives.  I've realized that I can't go a morning without falling asleep on the drive to work if I don't have a mug o' joe.  But only if Joe is coffee.  I don't know why it's Joe.  I could look it up, but who cares?  Especially when I'm falling asleep at the wheel of a car.  Luckily for me, I'm not the driver.  So I can pass out for as long as I want...until I get to work, then I have to get it together.

While you want to indulge yourself in some some scientific (or should I say that with quotes?  Well, to be safe, don't quote me on that) studies conclude that coffee saves lives and hugs babies, it's probably still a safe bet to not go overboard.  Drink your coffee responsibly, or risk the jittery manic mug.

Comic Con!

All the nerds and hipsters and everyone in between descend upon San Diego this week, starting today.  It's all about movies and comics and cool tv shows and video games...oh, and toys and cosplay and nerds and sweating and stinky.  It's all of those things and it's gloriously busy and fascinating and horrible.  All at once.

This is our ode to the con, complete with newsprint style dots.
From zompeas to Indibanana Jones to people in bow ties and glasses, Comic Con has it all.

Gaze into the face of Fear

I always liked Judge Fear the most.  Even though he was a rather one trick pony (with the look at my face and die of fright thing).  And Judge Death had all the cool lines as well as being able to stick his hand through people to kill them.
This isn't the best, but I thought it was good enough to post...I wanna draw him again and see if I can't do it better.

I also never noticed, until I started drawing him, that Judge Fear had bear traps as shoulder pads. Very strange.  Oh - he also has a cape, which I forgot to draw...heh.  I just realized just now.

Customer in our merchandise!

We made bibs and little beanies for babies with our Ms Cupcake embroidered on the front.
Adorable and ready to keep the baby's clothes much as possible, which isn't much because they're babies.  And babies are messy.  Yucky dirty messy.  It'll all end up in the wash anyway, but at least your baby will be cute in the meantime!

You can find them on our website - - the bib is $10 and the beanie is $8 - or you can get the pair for $15!

The Sentence is Dredd!!!

I've been on a Judge Dredd kick lately, I did two Dredd sketches and then two colored pencil versions.

I feel like I need to do another one though, because I'm still not satisfied with it.  But as a break from that I thought I'd do a version of Judge Death.

The Dredd comics have had a lot of iconic bad guys, but none captured our imagination as much as the Dark Judges.  Sometimes they were captured or defeated in silly ways, but they were such great character designs - with each one of the Dark Judges having his own unique way to kill.

The Crime is life, the sentence is DEATH!

Did you know that before Judge Death became the iconic villain, he was just a sadistic boy named Sidney?  His parents sealed his fate with that name.

Happy Pantry: Teenage Vegetable Ninja Peas

Everyone grew up with them...they're green and mean and are good for you!  Peas!
Oh - and there was a teenage mutant ninja thingy or something.

I did a quick drawing previously with this idea, and wanted to flesh it out more.  Especially since the new show reintroduced Bebop and Rocksteady.  I had it in my head that they should be The Teenage Vegetable Ninja Peas vs Peabop and RocksteadPea.  That's right, RocksteadPea.

Happy Pantry: Almost Alliterative Alphabet Book, letter E

Gotta work those glutes!

Feel the burn (hopefully from being deep fried...because eggplant doesn't taste good any other way).
And that's why they need to work out - all that deep fried oil and grease doesn't do well for one's shape...unless you're going for eggplant shaped, then carry on.

Happy Pantry - Happy Friday!

There's nothing happier than Friday!  And nothing makes Fridays happier than celebrating with french fries!

French Fries make every day a celebration!

Sometimes the week just takes it out of you - by Friday, you're fried.

Happy Pantry - Cute Cupcake Kitchen Towel

 Our next product was the Cupcake Kitchen Towel.  Ms Cupcake quickly took over and became our company mascot.  This was also a departure from our original round of creating kitchen towels, because we were able to embroider directly onto the towels themselves.

They're so fluffy!

 Our cupcake towels can also come in mason jars - if you see them at our shows/conventions.  We also offer them online for a small additional fee.  The cost is to cover the jar as well as the packing and heavier shipping.
