illustrator/graphic designer.
I make Motherworld.

here are covers to comics that I probably won’t write stories for. I just think of the titles and possible covers sometimes and it gives me some good giggles.

maybe Cosmic Teen will happen someday. Slam Duck is still working through the d league* of my brain.

I had a really great albeit tragically short weekend in LA. it was my first time getting a good look around. I went to see one of my most important friends play a show in Art Share LA. have you ever seen someone you’ve known a long time do something they absolutely love with someone they absolutely love and be super killer at it? I’ve never been that kind of happy before.
I also managed to get into Anime Expo for an hour or so. I’m not as into anime as I should be, but it was great being surrounded by people who were really passionate about something and were inclusive and happy to share it. I met a few rad/cute/great people along the way and felt really inspired to start tabling at cons.
here’s all the stuff I got that you should get:1. Mega Man, Chrono Trigger posters and motivation to read One Piece from ohmonah2. Rad Dudes and Yo Raps trading cards from The Last Bookstore3. Frontier: Hellen Jo4. Breddy Murphy and more reasons to read One Piece from scrotumnose5. omocat shirt6.「anime is not bad」7. Vacation Wasteland and button from slimegirlsmusic8. Three Scenarios by Kelly Luce and Wolfenjump, both borrowed from chipmnk

I have a shirt for sale on Threadless. That one up there. It’s part of a collection along with 29 other tees being sold to help out Adam White. Adam got diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and paresthesias. All the net profits from this collection will go towards helping Adam. I’m really proud to be a part of this. 

If you could, please buy a shirt! If that one up there isn’t your cup of tea, there’s 29 others that could be. There’s other things you can do, too.

We’ve opened up a shop with the same basic deal but with non-shirt stuff.

You can donate straight to his site. (Just know at this point, it’s incredibly hard for him to draw. So just specify that it’s a donation and not any kind of exchange.)

Please reblog and share this. If you would like a print of this, let me know and I’ll try and figure out how to go about printing it. 

Thanks for reading!

I put this back up on threadless for voting. if you’d like it as a shirt/print/case/whatever, please vote and let them know! this is a remake of a friend’s, so I don’t have any plans to release it anywhere else. maybe in the distant future when I’m more responsible and learn how money works. don’t count on that happening, though!

wishcandy asked: It's just such a good feeling seeing other people wear your shit. I've only designed one printed tee, many years ago for a band. And every time i'd go to shows, i'd sort of snicker at the sight of teens moshing around in my shirts. There are such huge gaps in the market and a lot of lame merch. We should just make things that make up happy and people will find it and be happy also. :3


Answer:

yeah! I have a shirt out and it’s fun hearing the reactions my friends get from people when they wear it around. it makes me feel really cool n_n
I know my stuff isn’t for everybody, but that just makes it extra special for the people who do like it. and just having it exist and out there is such a good feeling! 

right now I’m using some sites to make things for me, but I’m trying to learn more about setting up my own shop and putting out things myself. I feel like I’d be a lot happier doing my own thing, at least for some merch.

@sldclothing motivated me to draw more without the computer so I’m hitting it off with his favorite subject matter.
