Heart of Thomas is RIDICULOUSLY gorgi
Ottale’s rock-hard scaled belly is used for combing sea and lake-beds to dislodge shell-fish. They possess an adeptness for using tools and are deceptively strong due to an excess of muscle tendons. A single strike from an Ottale can crack even the hardest of objects, whether it is a clam or an enemy. Ottale can float for days, expending little energy as they travel from place to place. They often travel in pairs and hold hands so they don’t drift apart. Local folklore considers Ottale a messenger between humans and creatures.
Benign Kingdom presents their first collection of themed titles - Capture Creatures, the Exquisite Beast, and Midnite Surprise.
Capture Creatures - by Becky Dreistadt and Frank Gibson
Inspired by Ken Sugimori’s feat of designing the original 151 Pokemon in a single year Becky Dreistadt and Frank Gibson have created 151 unique creatures, relations, and descriptors.
The Exquisite Beast - by Evan Dahm and Yuko Ota
A series of illustrations of a monster evolving traded between Yuko and Evan. All illustrations were done with ink and inkwash.
Midnite Surprise V2 - by KC Green
A collection of material from KC Green’s art blog - midnitesurprise.tumblr.com this collection features a new collection of work featuring original illustrations, comics, and more.
We worked really hard on designing these books and the Exquisite Beast book is hopefully gonna be really lovely, especially the deluxe edition. We’re shooting for the deluxe cover to be a three-piece done with black faux leather binding over a cloth cover with a screenprinted design, debossed title area, a pasted-on title card. With a ribbon bookmark. I’m ridiculously excited. 8D
And it’s gonna be full of weird monsters and that is cool, too!
I had the opportunity to draw this logo for a new podcast on BoingBoing.net
I re-opened the Situology shop. Now Sleepy Details is available for you to own, as well as our old standbys.
I’m finishing up a new, longer book right now and could really use the $$, and maybe you could use the comics. For reading, or giving? Thanks.
You can now get Lauren Barnett and Nathan Bulmer’s The Hic & Hoc Illustrated Journal of Humor Volume One: The United States at the Hic & Hoc store!
Do it before you second-guess yourself and spend the money on something sensible.
Ineku is a stoic guardian to smaller creatures and children in need. The creature’s coat has a soft, papery texture, unlike that of any creature discovered to date. Historically considered a symbol of good fortune, Ineku’s presence also induces evolution in some creatures.
pokemon comics bros :3
if you’re my bro and I didn’t draw you here, it’s only because you don’t have a pokemon I immediately associate you with /:3
we went to see Ursula Le Guin speak and read from a book she translated from Spanish, that was translated from Romanian. The Romanian-to-Spanish translator was there too! And very charming and excited to be reading with his favorite author(!).
The original (Romanian) author’s daughter and nephew were there too. At one point, we heard a story being read in all three languages! (((Not all at once, obvz))) It was neat.
She signed my sketchbook because we forgot to bring books. I gave her my last promotional postcard / comic which I just happened to have on me.
The nugget that really stuck with me was when she said that the book would probably never be turned into a movie or a BBC miniseries because it was “more descriptive than narrative, more idea than drama”.
I get real caught up in Oh Gosh, Maybe I Should Be Working On A Graphic Novel and thinking about story structures and archetypes and tropes and getting mad and being like NO! I want to work on a bunch of little one-pagers! and make a book that way! But then I just did that “Internet Comics” thing and took advantage of the two-page spreads and whatever. I don’t have to decide. It doesn’t matter.
It was nice to hear, is all. I felt like she was telling me it was okay to make different kinds of stories. There aren’t any rules.
(If you haven’t read the Earthsea series or The Left Hand of Darkness, I think they’re both great and I love them.)
went to the park with michael and elaine yesterday
