Announcing, A Very Scalzi Christmas Book

Hey all! I can finally announce the awesome project I worked on earlier this year. I illustrated the cover and interior chapter spots for A Very Scalzi Christmas by John Scalzi, published by Subterranean Press.

I was honored, overjoyed, and felt incredibly lucky to get to work on another project with John and Subpress. It’s always a fun time working with these wonderful folks. This book follows the same format as Miniatures with a delightful collection of very short works of fiction. This time, as you may have surmised from the title, they are Christmas/Christmas adjacent themed.

Pre-orders are up over at Subpress and you can also read the official announcements on the Subpress blog and on John’s blog.


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.

Action Pups! Game Kickstarter

At long last Action Pups!, a fast paced storytelling game about the secret lives of dogs by Twogether Studios, is now live on Kickstarter. This is the canine version of the similarly named game, Action Cats!, and is indeed the same flavor of game, but this time, as you may have surmised, is all about the good dogs. Additionally, I also did the illustration and packaging design.

Also, just like with Action Cats!, those that back the Kickstarter will have the opportunity to add their pupper pal’s photo to the game.

Seal of Disapproval

Recently this was commissioned from me. In case you haven't seen the video of the New Zealand fur seal that gets all octopus-slappy on an unsuspecting kayaker, that is what this piece is based upon. I was happy someone requested this as I really wanted to do something with this fur seal. So, thanks again person who commissioned this!

Also! This is now up on my Redbubble shop on stickers and other things.
