Self Promotion

So, this spring I hinted at some interesting ‘Krampus’ developments in the future, and it may be time to spill the beans. I’ve signed a Distribution/Development deal with a company in California to place the Krampus designs that I’ve been doing these past five or six years (as personal Christmas Card images), on various bits of merchandise (mugs, magnets, lunch boxes, puzzles are the ones that I’ve been told about so far). I received the first of the samples this week, a box of mugs, and the advance check arrived this past weekend, so I can assume this project is moving forward, and you should be seeing these items available in the near future (I’ll post links when I have them).

Ukulele Club

Self Promotion

My wife is a member of a ‘ladies only’ ukulele group that meets semi-weekly, and they approached me with the idea of doing a tee shirt for them. They had showed me a cutesy example of another tee shirt available elsewhere, and wanted me to do something similar. I had different ideas, moving in more of a punk direction. This a rough sketch version. Haven’t heard yet whether they hate it or not.

Hints of Life

Green Prints, Self Promotion

Immediately following the highest grossing month (May) since 2008, I experienced one of the slowest and lengthiest early summer droughts in years (June-mid July). This week there appears to be some signs of life starting to pop up (a meeting to discuss some work for a local client tomorrow, and another book project just popped up out of nowhere this morning). This morning I did a ‘self assignment’ just to try and keep my spirits up (the illustration above) which I’ve entitled “To the Victor, the Spoils”. Below are a couple of black and white illustrations I did for Green Prints Magazine last week (or the week before, I’ve lost track of time).

Updated Bibliography

This afternoon I’ve updated the ‘Bibliography’ page on my website, with some of the recent book projects I’ve been involved with, along with amazon links to most of what is still in print (going back to 1990). Interesting to see that links are already up to a few of the books that I’ve only recently finished working on, and a few that I’m still in the process of completing. I’ll be back next week with some samples of ‘shorter deadline’ and ‘editorial’ work, so stay tuned.




Krampus 2015

Self Promotion

That time of year again. This is the fifth Krampus card I’ve done, and this year, I thought I’d try doing one in the scratchboard style. As with the previous images in this series, it is available on various bits of merchandise at my Zazzle storefront (see the ‘store’ link in the menu above).
