I'm back home for the holidays, and it feels nice to relax and drive to some of my old hangouts and haunts. Today I took a trip to Palm Springs. I saw the Cabazon Dinosaurs and went into the San Jacinto Mountains via the Ariel Tramway. It was a good day.

Speaking of Palm Springs, here's a recent Postable I made at work with that specific town in mind.

Happy Holidays everyone,

Happy Thanksgiving

Since I had nothing Thanksgiving oriented to show you, I thought I would share something I made at work for Halloween.

Ape Con!

Howdy All! This weekend is the very cool Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco. Me and my talented cohort, Josh Parpan will be seated at the Goblin Fish Press table number 519 where we will be selling our prints, books and toys! While your there be sure to also check out some of our ultra talented friends:

Kikutowne (539)
Fleet Street (333 & 334)

It's going to be a swell weekend, and I hope to see you guys there!

To celebrate Halloween I also wanted to show you something I made at my day job. This was an exciting little project I made at JibJab with our genius stop motion animation wizard Devin Bell.

Coming soon to your local Multiplex!

So, for a few years now I've been adding to a series of customizing monster prints I started in the good old year of 2007 - here's the original four, if your interested. To celebrate the 7th addition to the series I thought it would be cool if I posted the ruff version of the next charter. This is my version of the teenage werewolf. He's from the wrong side of the tracks and a bit of a rebel, but if you get through the thick hairy exterior he's actually a real swell guy!

I finished a Count Dracula monster model print the other day, so I'll post that, along with the finished teen wolf print real soon. See you then!

What's up friends! This big guy here is a postcard I made with my own bare hands for the JibJab site. In more exciting work related news this big guy was recently turned into a stop motion short that me and my swell friend Devin Bell made. It will be released on the JibJab website in a few weeks and I'll post a behind the scenes entry soon.

In other news I made an appearance at the San Diego Children's museum a few weekends ago. It's a really swell location, and I had a great time!

One day I will record this record.

In other news I'll be making an appearance at the San Diego Children's Museum on Sept. 14th. It's a really swell location and I hope everyone can make it.

Comic Con

So Today I'm printing prints for the convention like a madman! It isn't my favorite part of the whole convention experience, but all the hard work will be worth it on Wednesday when were relaxing in San Diego. And the best part of all is this year our table is right next to our awesome friends Kevin and Chris from Fleet Street, and Elizabeth who will be selling her super awesome Kikutowne monsters! It's going to be an amazing time!

Here's a new print I'm selling this year. It's the second new character in my Customizing Monster Kit series.

Comic Con 2008

I couldn't be more thrilled that the San Diego Comic Con is less then one week away! Seeing that me and my Goblin Fish Press cohort, Josh Parpan have a table at the convention, I thought it appropriate to start showcasing some of the new and exciting work we'll be selling this year. I'll be posting new prints, toys and more every few day's this week, so be sure to check back often.

Here's the first new full sized print I'll be selling this year. It's one of two new prints in the Customizing Monster Kit series I sold last year.

Two days from now I'll be posting the second new print in the series - The Teenage Mummy!

I haven't posted for awhile, so here's something from the bowls of last years busy portfolio.

Work for the San Diego Comic Con and a secret/soon to be revealed project at JibJab have consumed these last few weeks. It's been a busy period of time, but I'll post more about it soon.

Until then,

Things are really busy at work and it's been a chalenging task keeping afloat my own personal projects. On my off time - chiefly between the hours of 9 pm and 2 am - I've been slowly working on a new children's book concept. It's set in my native Palm Springs and features this swell little character.

Thursday, May 01, 2008

Here's a Postable I made at work. It's funny, I've lived in Venice for six months now and still haven't touched the ocean. I blame it on my justifiable fear of being eaten alive!

On a more pleasant note one of my freelance projects was recently plugged on the website Boing Boing.

If your at all interested you can find my Magnetic Monster Toy at the swell Goblin Fish Press site I run with my ultra talented brother Josh.

Sunday, April 13, 2008

Here's a few label designs I did for a soon to be released JibJab short. I do a lot of work like this at JibJab, but I like the way these two came out. It's not everyday I get to design an air freshener with a cartoon devil as the mascot.

The Mysterious Delgadillo

What's a Delgadillo you ask? He's the reptilian creature barking at that mongrel dog of course! This was a piece of ruff concept art for a book pitch I created last year when I lived inside a shed in my parents backyard and had way to much free time on my hands.

Those were the good old days.

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

I made this postcard for a seriously talented filmmaker and freind Ryan Bosch. If your in the Los Angeles area on Thursday come and check out his movie at the Bootleg Theater.

Sunday, March 02, 2008


The other day I spotted in a little shop in Venice Beach two very cool pieces of merchandise I worked on last summer, my Monster Tin Set and one extremely Mighty Dinosaur puzzle. It was a strange kind of thrill to see my work sitting there on a sales rack and I have to admit for once in a really long time I felt like a professional working adult! You can purchase these guys here at the Mudpuppy web sight. The magnetic monster set in particular make for extremely cool fridge magnets!

One quick note about both products - If you guys stopped by my table at last years Comic Con you might recognize some of these monsters and dinosaurs from a series of prints I sold.

That's the end of my shameless plug. Sorry if I came off like a salesmen.

Here's something a made for an upcoming JibJab production. Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

The Cereal Killers Show!

Since Halloween this blog has been a real ghost town and I want to apologize to the faithful two or three visitors who check for life every month or so. I was recently granted a swell design position at JibJab and since have had to move myself to the sunny shores of Venice Beach - that's my excuse. I'm an adult now and thusly have a lot less time for midnight blogging and vegging out in front of early morning reruns of the X-Files, but I promise to you faithful two or three I'll try to post a few times a month. In theaters now you can check out the box I made for The Cereal Killers show. My fellow Cereal Killer brother, Josh Parpan also did a box for the show. A special thanks goes to the extremely cool Viktor Von Kreep for inviting us to contribute!

It feels good to be back!
