so i did a few shows recently and i really want to say a big thanks to all the excellent people at denver comic con and vancaf . They were both rock solid good shows and i sold out of the books i brought. there was a lot of cool stuff i got at the show too including noah van sciver’s new issue of blammo (#8). that is such a cool and inspiring comic.
waiting for me when i got home was this new boardgame, FIVE POINTS by Andreas Steding from Mayfair games. i did the cover for which you might have already seen a while back. so please excuse me but here it is again:
It might be obvious to anyone who has seen the somewhat strange Martin Scorsese movie, Gangs of New york, but the characters on the cover were inspired by that. I thought Daniel Day Lewis was pretty entertaining in that film. i did some of the interior art for this game too. like this stuff.
another cool thing that came in mail was this excellent drawing of my lonely astronaut alien from it will all hurt by one of my favorite dudes making comics, jeffery brown. i love this thing. thanks jeff.
we are still taking orders of it will all hurt, and any retailers interested in getting some for their store please go through distributor, tony shenton. i started chapter four of iwah a few weeks ago and am excited to keep doing it. unfortunately after next week i am gonna have to take another break for two months while i try to finish the wrenchies. but there are a bunch of new original art pages for sale on the studygroup site.
Wednesday July 3,2013 at 6-10pm at i will be at floating world comics for a show and selling copies of it will all hurt as well as showing off some of those originals. please come by. heres the info:*First Thursday has been moved to Wednesday this month due to the Independence Day holiday.

PANGS in a unique new collaboration from writer MK Reed and acclaimed comic book artist Farel Dalrymple. Based on the Irish legend Tain Bo Cuailnge, PANGS is a collected set of seven fine art prints that, when put together, tell the haunting and bizarre story of how an ancient land became cursed for generations. Showcasing Dalyrymple’s beautiful lush watercolors and Reed’s sharp wit and timing, PANGS is part frameable art piece, part readable comic book.
Printed in Portland, Oregon on 100% post-consumer recycled 110# premium matte stock and collected in a protective polyester sleeve. 10″ x 7.6″ with a 4″ x 7.6″ insert.”

not too long after that is locust moon comic festival. check out the very cool fest poster by rob woods who has a new book, DEPRESSED PUNX COLLECTION from Locust Moon Press out for the show.
i highly recommend getting a copy of that as his dead depressed punx minis are some of the best comic i have read in recent years.
now here are some wrenchies pages in progress.
and here’s my weird setup. my desk doesn’t normally look like this.
if you were wondering, that is a hogwarts coffee mug on my desk. I just got the word from my very cool and understanding publisher first second that i have about two months to finish the wrenchies for it come out in 2014, so i won’t be going out or talking to anyone or taking on any more work until september. wish me luck. i desperately need to finish that book.
by the way the second prophet trade came out recently prophet vol 2: brothers. i might be biased because i drew 21 pages of comics and a few sketch pages in there but i honestly enjoy reading the hell out of that comic book. and i just saw on the image website that my cover for issue 40 is up.
and one last thing before i go is a newish sketchbook page that didn’t make the delusional cut.
ok, maybe i will see you see you tomorrow or at spx or wherever.
