American Illustration

Good news! My promotional image for the Rabid Rabbit Show was Chosen by American Illustration 29. It will be displayed on their website later this year. This marks the 6th year that I'm part of the AI competition, including both Selected and Chosen images. And every year I'm very grateful to be included alongside my idols. Thanks to all the judges!

MoCCA Festival

I had a great time at the MoCCA Festival this weekend. I was looking forward to this one, we had a great new Rabid Rabbit issue, I had a couple mini-comics, we got to hang out with old friends and made some new ones. Pictured above: Team Rabbit, S.Y. Choi, Ben X. Trinh, yours truly and Chris M. Butzer (photo courtesy of Anuj Shrestha). Thanks to everybody, and see you again next year!

Article in "Pforzheimer Zeitung"

For all of you who speak the German lingo, this came out today in the Pforzheimer Zeitung. That's the city where I studied Graphic Design and Fine Arts for 4 1/2 years. In the interview, they asked me what I thought about the University and my time in Pforzheim, but also about my current projects and the life as an illustrator in New York. Thanks very much to Daniela Huber for the great article!

MoCCA Festival on DART

DART (DesignArtsDaily) is the newsletter from American Illustration and American Photography. They asked me and some of the great people who will be at the Festival to share some of our thoughts and experiences regarding MoCCA. You can check it out here. Thanks to Peggy Roalf and American Illustration!

New Comics debuting at MoCCA Festival

The MoCCA Festival is this weekend, and this time around I'll have not one, but two brand-new mini-comics with me at the Rabid Rabbit table: Journey Into Misery 1+2. Both stories are pretty much wacky homages to the US comicbooks I grew up with, plus other weird influences. But most of all they were a lot of fun to make. They are hand-made, the covers are on metallic paper with rubberstamping.

Also I'll have my two children's books with me plus some older handmade goodies, and of course we'll have the new Rabid Rabbit with us (Issue 11), all of our back issues and my colleagues will also have new goodies with them.

So come by, it'll be fun!
