Month of Monsters Wrap-Up

Here are all my monstrous creations from last month. Check out the full site for all the monsters (not just mine).

Month of Monsters 2014!

Today’s the day! It’s the first day of Month of Monsters! Woo!

For those of you unfamiliar with Month of Monsters, it’s a self paced project I started a few years ago to draw a monster a day for the entire month of October. Last year was the first year I officially opened up the project for anyone to join in with a dedicated site to post everyone’s creations. The full monstrous details can be found over at the Official Month of Monsters website. I encourage you to participate! Also it’s not just for visual arts, written works are encouraged too.

Cthulhu Slippers Patreon

Good news everyone!

Andrew Jack has set up a Patreon page for the Cthulhu Slippers webcomic! Yay!


Wait, but don’t you already have a Patreon page that I may or may not already be supporting?

First, thank you so much those of you who are already my Patreon. Yes, I do have my own Patreon page (which is supporting things like Over-Encumbered among other personal projects). The reason Cthulhu Slippers is a separate Patreon is because it’s not 100% my project. Andrew Jack (the author and creator of Cthulhu Slippers) hired me to do the art for the comic and he pays me for this service. Also, while there is some overlap between my fans and Cthulhu Slippers fans, Cthulhu Slippers has a MUCH larger following. Finally, and most important, since I’m working for Andrew we wanted a way for Cthulhu Slippers to become self sufficient (or at least more so than it was). Andrew should get some love too. :)

Sounds fair. But what if I want to support both of you? Would you be offended if I rearranged my pledge to give some to Cthulhu Slippers?

No, not at all. Any support is awesome.

If you are curious what goals and incentives Cthulhu Slippers is offering, all that is outlined on its Patreon page.


Rose City Comic Con Sketches

Hey everyone!

This past weekend I was lucky enough to share a booth with the always amazing Doubleclicks (they begin an East Coast/Midwest tour this week so make sure you go see them if they are coming to your city) where I sketched Doubleclicks themed art for folks. It was fun and amazing and I hope one day I get to do something like this again. It was thrown together at the last minute, so I apologize to anyone who didn’t know I was going to be there.

Here are the sketches from the weekend. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and who requested a sketch!

Good news everyone!

I have a Patreon campaign now! Woo!



Mainly it’s to help out with the operation of my comic Over-Encumbered, but I’m not limiting it to just that. I talk about all this, reward tiers for supporters, and more over on my Patreon page. Please check it out if you fancy supporting my artwork. If not, there’s also a delightful video highlighting my on-camera awkwardness – so, totally well worth the visit.


Parsec Awards Ceremony @ DragonCon2014



Hey everyone who is going to DragonCon! Do you like podcasts? Do you like music? Do you like seeing awesome podcasters winning awards for all their wonderful hard work to provide you with free entertainment? Sure you do.

The 9th Annual Parsec Awards Ceremony is happening this Sunday @ 6PM, in the Hyatt Regency V room at DragonCon2014. If you’re free, why not stop by to support all these wonderful folks?

Tom Merritt and Justin Robert Young are this year’s fabulous hosts. Also, the brilliant Sarah Donner will be there to fill your ears with delightful music (please buy all her stuff including her new album “That is a Pegasus”).

P.G. Holyfield

UPDATE: On August 20th 2014, at 11:20pm, P.G. Holyfield — author of Murder at Avedon Hill — lost his very short battle with cancer. Rest in peace, Patrick.


A couple days ago we were told our friend, author and podcaster, P.G. Holyfield was fighting an extremely aggressive form of cancer. As in, please hurry up and send him your messages, time may be terribly limited to do so. It happened incredibly fast, from him not feeling well in July, to, well, this.

I write this as we are visiting the UK for the second time. The first time my mother was fighting cancer, and unbeknownst to us, only had a couple more months. I only mention this because memory is so tied to place. Where were you when… This is such a terrible disease that needs a cure. Scratch that, all terrible diseases need cures.

Patrick is a wonderful author, and if you haven’t read his novel, “Murder at Avedon Hill” (also available as an audiobook) I highly recommend this brilliant fantasy mystery that truly and delightfully surprised me at the end. It has, and will remain, in a place of honor on my bookshelf. Thank you, Patrick, for such a great story. I know I’ve told you before, but it deserves repeating.

Patrick also is a prolific podcaster, who has lent his voice to many productions as well as his own creations, such as Beyond the Wall, and Consumption podcasts.

I’m honored that Patrick had chosen me to illustrate so many of his creative endeavors, and to call him a friend. Thank you, Patrick. I’m glad I was able to work with you. It’s always pleasure, even with the color thing. :)

If you’d like to help out Patrick’s family with the inevitable piles of hospital bills for Patrick to be as comfortable as possible for the time he has, and to help out his three girls, a fund is available here:
