I drew a pirate thing. Pirates are assholes. Leave those indigenous island people’s treasure alone, assholes.

MTV asked me to write a letter to YOU, telling you about what it’s like to be intersex. Let me know what you think!

My multi-talented super friend, Emily Quinn is making waves and being awesome at life. I’m so proud of her for sharing her story with the world.

Adventure Time - The Art of Ooo - 6sec preview.

Friday reminder: The Art of Ooo, written by Chris McDonnell, will be available for your coffee table on Rocktober 14.

I’m in here! Didja see me? This is a really amazing book full of a lotta fun stuff from the show makin process that doesn’t always get to be seen!  I would very much recommend it

Read me say stupid things. Look at some of my old drawings :)  Couldn’t be more proud and honored.

Guys, if you like thorough, THOROUGH art books, this is a gorgeous example of what an art book should be (IMHOOOOOO). Great art all the way from pre-production to guest episodes to the most recent seasons. So honored to have a bunch of my art in this book, sandwiched in between some truly fantastic visionaries’ work!

So…Buy it!

Sketch dump!

These are some of my favorite Con Commissions and sketches of the last few months. ENJOY!

Oh, I drew a bunch of these. Fun episode.

How did you score the gig of background designer for Adventure Time?

I just drew lots and lots of comics and made friends with people who also drew lots and lots of comics. Eventually (years and years later) we all started getting jobs making movies and cartoons and “real comics” and started recommending our fellow hard-working comic creator friends for jobs.

When I got sick of my greeting card illustration job, I decided it was time for me to try my hand at animation, and when I turned to my friends in the field, they knew I had the goods (or lead me to believe they thought so) and eventually, one of those recomendations turned into a job on Adventure Time.

I personally feel like making comics is one of the best ways to train yourself for a job in animation. You learn to draw fast, draw well, be clear and concise in your storytelling, draw figures in perspective, etc, etc, etc!

Keep drawing!

Will you ever give us the Japanese rap made for Food Chain???

OH NO!!! THe world is not ready for my horrible excuse for rapping…..in Japanese no less. I doubt I would have even done it had Pen not asked me directly; it’s hard to say no to such a positively happy guy. 

I think I can safely say that Pen and I agree it is better that the legend of the Adventure Time Japanese rap (that I wrote myself, hah!) about birds and human flight stays in legend.

(Please, Pen…delete the file)

Here are some Adventure Time backgrounds I drew. I should post these more frequently, but…I forget all the time.

Here’s some fun little Adventure Time pieces I drew last week. I don’t really spend a lot of time working on Adventure Time once I get home from… well, working on Adventure Time, but these were fun!

Enjoy!
