Everybody loves The Mayor!

Here's a cool statue of the Mayor of Townsville that I got to design for THE POWERPUFF GIRLS MOVIE:


...and here's how it looked in the movie (Just before being blown to bits):

Happy Birfday to me!

No, not my actual birthday, but my blog's! Hard to believe, but it's been a little over a year since I started blogging... and man, what a crazy year it's been.(Time flies when you're not regularly updating!) Definitely nice to be part of the art blog explosion.

To celebrate, I'll send a special "J IS FOR JAWA" promo postcard to the first 6 people who post a comment! (One per person, so no multiple posts, kids) ...and ONE random person will receive a special *BONUS* Post-It doodle. So get postin'.... maybe you'll get one.

Hopefully, I'll keep posting enough new stuff to keep all you guys coming back for year 2 :)

EL TIGRE Art Show Pics

The EL TIGRE crew's Dia de Los Muertos art show was packed, and it wasn't just for the free-flowin' margartias:



Traditional tribute to everyone's passed family members



There's those Super Muertos Bros.... and, yup, they sold.




Eddie Trigueros' tribute to dead cartoon cats



Steve Lambe, kicking ass.



Phil Rynda, Ian Wasseluk, and Steve Lambe got so drunk they joined the Marines



EL TIGRE creators Jorge Gutierrez & Sandra Equihua also celebrated their anniversary!




Jorge did so much art, one photo isn't enough to contain it!



Sandra shows off her embroidery skills



Miss Mindy, Sandra, and a hatless Rick O'Brien



Mindy and yours truly show off what a good buzz does for you

Hey...we weren't drunk at all! We just happen to share the unique super power of being psychically attuned to hip fashion.

Alright...we were drunk.

Hello! I am a random person who has been enjoying your blog. I admit to only commenting because of the postcard deal. It's really been educational being able to see and read about someone actually in the industry. Thanks for sharing!

The Floating Cat said...

Your illustration work is simply amazing. I wish I had even an ounce of your artistic talent.

And happy b-day man!

craig said...

DAMNNIT!...#9. soooo close. I just realized El Tigre is the show my buddy Matt D. is working on. Very cool, and congrats on the year of blogging!

Chris Battle said...

Wow- that went quick! ...and since my peops Steve and Anna already have my postcard, that leaves an xtra one for lucky post #8-- the uber-talented Alina Chau.

I'll be fishing names out of a hat to see who gets the Post-It doodle. Be on the lookout for your card in the mail... maybe with something xtra!
