YOU MIGHT BE AN ARTIST IF

YOU MIGHT BE AN ARTIST IF published on No Comments on YOU MIGHT BE AN ARTIST IF

Very proud to say that my book, “You Might Be an Artist If…” released by Top Shelf Productions in February, is just about sold out of the first printing. But, reprints are due to ship out in June! You can order wherever comic books are sold. Here’s some handy-dandy links for ordering from Top Shelf directly, and on Amazon, Barnes and NobleChapters Indigo (good for Canadians, eh) and Indiebound… etc etc etc.

I have a very small supply of my own copies that I have been signing and sending out myself. If you’re interested in getting your own signed copy, contact me through my contact page. I’m selling those for $20, plus shipping $9.

Here is a little baby Ceylon Jungle Shrew. She lives in (what’s left of) the subtropical and tropical dry forests of Sri Lanka.

Not sure the exact number of how many are left, but we’re certain that they are very endangered. That’s mostly based on our knowledge of how much forest area is left for them to live in and how that space continues to get smaller.

BUT (a glimmer of hope) reading up on deforestation in Sri Lanka- we’ve been taking steps in the right direction in protecting the forests there. We’re still cutting shit down, but the rate at which we are has slightly decreased due to some new laws and establishing some protected areas. Still a lot of chopping down going on though..

They’re pretty cute, eh?

Finished this drawing today for the wonderful William Benton, aka. Cat Casual.
Soon he’ll be making some t-shirts with this design. If anyone is interested in buying one I’ll keep you updated here or you can follow him on the Facebook.

IF YOU like this hand drawn poster-stuff and have a band that’s good- feel free to give me your money. I’ll make you something.

For everything else Cat Casual is doing check it out here- especially if you’re in the Louisville area.

I am a big fan of his radio show on artxfm that’s every Sunday 4-6pm— so I recommend checking that out too. Great tunes to draw to, that’s for sure.

Cat Casual’s Hotel Bohème 
William Benton
A place in the radio waves as an intersection of art and personalities; like the Chelsea Hotel or Beat Hotel- where music, the written word, film, visual art, and eccentric persons all share the same roof and commune. Punk, dada, folk, realism, comedy, autobiographical, political…

Sundays 4 – 6 PM

I have a new comic posted on Hyperallergic today called “Art Saves”

The whole thing was written just so that I had an excuse to draw a super-art-jesus…

Just kidding.
