i think every young space cadet needs to fight at least one giant alien tentacled monster in their lifetime:


for drawergeeks‘ giant monster topic today. :)

also, jen has posted our germany photos- or as we like to call it,  CASTLE DAY!


here again is some music to listen to if you decide to browse through.  this song will now forever remind me of watching the french and german countryside speed by as we traveled by train from paris to munich.

    Not that “Buildings and Mountains” is a bad song, but with an illo like that you should have posted “Fight Song!” :)

    Everyone should see Republic Tigers live too – they’re wicked good and very nice.

    wow man, beautiful art. You really nail those highlights. Really pops. Just curious, how much time did you spend coloring this?

    One of the nicest things I’ve seen you post. But I guess I’ve not followed you a super long time. Still, quite b’dass.
