Okay, so after weeks of labor and toil my website, Goblin Fish Press is finally open for business. I undertook this venture with my collaborator and Brother, Josh Parpan. He’s also a writer and illustrator-- his first book under the Baby Tattoo Label will be out next year-- and we thought it would be a swell idea if we had a joint website where we could sell our books, merchandise and showcase our like minded artwork.

So sit back, relax and gawk at the ghastly freak show known as the Goblin Fish Press!

Also, my new book Gwango’s Lonesome Trail finally arrives in stores this Friday. You can order a copy right now on Amazon.com!

Hey dude, I was just in Palm Springs this weekend, I have never been there before...pretty interesting place. My wife's grandpa turned 80! and he and his wife reside in a nice trailer park in the middle of nowhere, so we were there hangin out in the gorgeous heat. We also took a drive up to Joshua Tree...we went to the wrong side however...we did some hiking though....anyways, really cool place that desert is...(as yoda would say) Thanks for stopping by

I should do a comic about you and your bro. THE AMAZING PARPANS!

robert casumbal said...

congrats! i was wondering why i couldn't find your book at the bookstore this past weekend. i'll be picking one up saturday!

Joe said...

Wonderful image. Your design sense is unmatched.

Ryan Wood said...

Great stuff, Justin! Hats off to you guys on the Goblin Fish Press site too, it is fantastic!

Ed,

You can do a super hero comic based on us only if it was a Justice League kind of thing. You of course would be a member of the league, and I can think of a bunch of your CalArts amigos that would also be perfect. Oh yeah, and our home base is in a giant pencil.

Thanks everyone for the pretty words. I have a ton of work today, but I’ll be thanking each of you when I get some free time.
