Monster Parade Prints

The Cloudy Collection and Koyama Press recently released a limited series of Ed Emberley themed prints called Monster Parade. There's a wonderful print by Ed Emberley himself (seen above), as well as prints by Stephan Britt, Souther Salazar (both favorites of mine), and thirteen other talented Emberley fans. They look fantastic, I hope I can scrape together enough money to buy myself a set soon!

SPACE in Columbus, OH

I will be selling comics at the SPACE Comics Convention this weekend in Columbus.
This is my...uh...fourth year exhibiting at SPACE, and it's always a great time. The usual gang of artists will be there, with a few exciting additions: John Porcellino! Colin Upton! And Steve Willis!

the Yellow Wallpaper

This is a drawing I made for a gallery show last year, it's based on one of my favorite short stories: Charlotte Perkins Gilman's feminist horror classic the Yellow Wallpaper.
If you're not familiar with the story, you can read it at Project Gutenberg here, and there's a free audio recording at the bottom of this page.

Prestidigitonium on etsy

I'm selling my comics on etsy now, under the shop name Prestidigitonium.
Emberley Galaxy can be had for a mere $10, and you can find my old mini-comic Grouse there too, for $3. You can read a review of Grouse by Tom Spurgeon here.
I expect to put a couple more things up for sale in a week or two.

the Zortian Chronicles

Brooklyn blogger Tara Rose Stromberg maintains the site unkoshergirl, which is just littered with drawings of Zortians out of Ed Emberley's Big Green Drawing Book. Apparently Tara has been drawing Wooflers and Fwaaps since she was a little girl!

See several childhood Zort drawings here, and see how we bumped into each other here. Poke around her blog and you'll see delightful Zort doodles all over the place!
