hey everyone! This Friday at the Cotton Candy Machine here in NYC is the debut of Other Mother Brothers, a 3-person showing featuring myself, Jon Burgerman and JK5. I’ll have a fun set of new brotherly drawings available, along with some new prints and even a small selection of classic out-of-print and impossible to get prints such as Carrot Skeleton and Nurikabe!
Click over here for more information, hope to see some of you there Friday evening!

Still alive! Working on some longer term projects and products but itching to get back to monster doodling. Here’s a quick sketchbook page in the meantime.
Upcoming fun times include the 2012 Dunny release party at KRNY, the second annual Tiny Trifecta group show at Cotton Candy Machine in Brooklyn, and lots of surprises for Comic-Con International!
It’s that time of year again.. for the second time! Last year Clutter Magazine put on the Designer Toy Awards, a fun event designed to recognize outstanding achievement in our little niche of the toy world. Thanks to all of the fans out there, I even managed to eat one take one home for Android as a “Fan Favorite”!
Nominations are open again for the 2012 awards! This time around the nominees will be announced at Comic-Con in San Diego this July, with the actual awards given out during NY Comic-Con in October.
The nominations are a fan-driven democratic process, so naturally I wouldn’t dare to suggest that perhaps you nominate Worrible for best Plush or best Collaboration…
and I certainly would never encourage a nomination of O-No Sashimi for Toy of the Year…
and wouldn’t even consider hinting that perhaps our continuing Android releases would be ideal in Best Licensed Product or a repeat Fan Favorite!
Over the next few days I’ll be posting some preview images from the Great Escape.
For the full preview list and sales info please contact the gallery at email@example.com.
The world of Escape has been without sustainable natural resources for generations, over the years it has slowly become a closed system. The sole remaining source of energy for the inhabitants of Escape is that which is contained within themselves and their existing ecosystem. The ancients of Escape devised a system to harvest that energy which is then stored in liquid and crystalline forms for redistribution. Any waste of that energy, either through malicious actions or accidental deaths, is considered most shameful.
Citizens of Escape are expected to make an honorable sacrifice of their own energy to be harvested at the end of their lives, some families may even sacrifice their youngest children if they are unable to support their existing energy needs. Consume more energy than you are worth, and soon you or your loved ones are marked for judgement.
A thriving black market energy trade endangers the future of Escape.
On a personal level, the themes and imagery of “the Great Escape” chronicles some of my attempts to free myself from the disabling traps of past emotions and memories, to accept a new reality, and to move on from a love and a life left behind.
The Great Escape opens Friday, April 6th at 6pm.
109 Carlisle Blvd NE
Albuquerque, NM 87106
This double show also features the work of Kelly Denato, and her own personal take on the title “The Great Escape”.
I did this large and mini Adfunture YOKA figure set design back in 2008, I think it’s safe to say it’s not going to get made so I thought I would at least show it here! Enjoy what could have been!
