Last Day for “A Sketchy Sale!”

November 30th, 2015 | Posted in General

I just added a few last sketches to the Studio Store for our Black Friday through Cyber Monday sale! At midnight tonight (Central Standard Time) the prices go back from merely overpriced to “you must be kidding me!” wildly overpriced. Don’t miss out on this chance to experience true buyer’s remorse!

Sunday Mailbag- Empty!

November 29th, 2015 | Posted in Mailbag

Looks like it’s that time again… no questions to answer in the mailbag. I actually only have to post this maybe once or twice a year, and only because many of the questions I get are repeats of ones I have answered more than once in the past (I’ve had this feature running for over nine years, and this is the 450th “mailbag” post) or of the “please show me how to crosshatch” variety that are impossible to answer in a few paragraphs. It’s entirely possible that people have run out of questions. There are only so many questions people might have about freelancing, illustration,… READ MORE

Sketch o’the Week- John Boyega!

November 25th, 2015 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

I don’t know if you’ve heard about this but apparently there is a new Star Wars movies coming out next month. “The Force… something”. Anyway you’d think there would be more on the internet about it. This week’s Sketch o’the Week is of new Star War’s star John Boyega. I’d tell you this sketch is available in the Studio Store, and it is, but I’d advise you not to buy it. If I were you I’d wait until Black Friday… just sayin’. READ MORE

November 23rd, 2015 | Posted in Monday MADness

Next month MAD #537 will feature the annual “MAD 20 Dumbest People, Events and Things” of the year (and yes, I did the art on one of them this year). The next several installments of Monday MADness will take a look back at some of the MAD 20 pieces I have done over the years. This one is from MAD #497, Jan 2009. It’s a commentary on the government bailout of the big banks after the mortgage implosion crisis. The concept was to spoof of “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” but with Ben Bernanke, Henry Paulson, Nancy Pelosi and Barney Frank (with cameos by G.W.… READ MORE
