Some Fuzzy Sea Fun

On April Fools’, the Monterey Bay Aquarium had a little fun with this tread about a fantastic woolly sunfish.

Of course, if any of you know me, you know this is TOTALLY in my wheelhouse. So, of course I had to jump in and play.

And here is the fluffy snuggle fish in all it’s glory. Thanks to the Monterey Bay Aquarium for the fun times!

More THE BOOK WAS BETTER Content

In addition to illustrating the t-shirt for The Doubleclicks’ latest Kickstarter campaign for their new album, I was also delighted and honored to design the packaging for the album itself!

You can get a sneak peek at the design and also pre-order this wonderful album on Bandcamp. Pre-orders at other online music selling places to come in the next few weeks. There are so many rainbows, y’all. SO MANY. It is glorious.






THE BOOK WAS BETTER The Doubleclicks Album Kickstarter

The Doubleclicks just released their latest album on Kickstarter this morning, and I had the honor again of being a part of designing some of the rewards for this project, specifically the shirts. As always, it’s such a joy to work for Laser and Aubrey bringing their cute, meaningful, and fun ideas to life.

If you’d like some positive, supportive, and altogether awesome music that is sure to bring a smile to your face, I highly recommend checking out all their stuff.

‘The Book Was Better’ is about a lot of things: gender, dogs, cats, anxiety, Halloween, and pizza are some of the things. But the big theme is this: We spend too much time yelling on the Internet, and we should all try something else. Certainly we can’t stop using the Internet, that would be ridiculous. But just a tiny break sometimes, yeah — that’s probably good. Go to a museum. Go roller skating and break your arm. Try to throw a birthday party and don’t cancel it when you get overwhelmed at the very idea of human interaction.

It’s a comedy album.

Sidecar Astronauts - Play Again Album is LIVE

In case you missed it, Storm DiCostanzo, of the band Paul and Storm, just released his Kickstarted solo album today called Play Again by Sidecar Astronauts. It’s a delightful extravaganza of upbeat pop-tastic goodness. The perfect soundtrack to blast away the winter grey.

Also! I contributed a large portion of the artwork for this album. I’ve been a fan of Storm’s work for a very long time and I was thrilled and honored to get to design the art for this project.

But really, it’s all about the tunes. Storm did a fantastic job weaving together a sci-fi band, complete with tales of their adventures in space rocking out. You’ll get to see more of that once the videos are released, so keep your eyes peeled for that. I, for one, am excited to see where the Sidecar Astronauts go next. In the meantime, you can pick up a copy over at:

sidecarastronauts.bandcamp.com

Eventually this album will be found in all the other usual music buying/listening places too.

Sidecar Astronauts News!

It was just officially announced that I am helping out Storm DiCostanzo (of Paul and Storm) with the art on his Kickstarter album project, Sidecar Astronauts. A few other folks are joining this project to help out with videos and the production including Laser M WebberJoseph and Sarah Scrimshaw.

 

We're working hard behind the scenes to make sure Storm has the most awesome album release possible. I'm thrilled and honored to be a part of this project and very excited to make the final product a visual delight, extending Adam Levermore's amazing original Sidecar Astronauts art.

Awkward Adaptations

About a month ago I was approached by Meltem Bilgic to see if I had any interest in illustrating the awkward adaptations of nature for a new science blog she was developing.

 

Yes.

 

Yes I do.

 

So much.

 

Fast forward to today. The first article went up yesterday which is about a marsupial that mates itself to death. The cartoon for this, as one might imagine, was very fun to design. Please check it out and subscribe and/or share.
