In other news, Gawker somehow knows my name and has mentioned me in a list of reasons to keep watching the Leftovers:

This Nardwuar poster - I’m endlessly tickled by Jill Garvey’s room, which prominently features a Mitch Clem-illustrated poster for The Evaporators, in turn featuring Nardwuar the Human Serviette, celebrity interviewer and the very goofiest dude in pop music. Just look at him: his goofball affect is diametrically opposed to Jill’s infinite mopiness, making for a great addition to the “teen’s room said teen clearly didn’t decorate” trope. (A friend worries post-Departure this may be a world without Nardwuar; I say a world without Shaq and Nardwuar doesn’t deserve to continue.)

It occurs to me I have a project I was supposed to have had done by now that I completely stopped working on for several months for no reason other than my own staggering incompetence. Now it turns out Lemuria is about to step into the studio and Mark Ryan’s gonna record their new songs for the 7”, so I need to get my shit together and finish this damn thing. Ay carumba.

Did this album cover for the upcoming Jake Flores album on Stand Up! Records. Amanda did the inkwash. Crazy exciting opportunity, getting to do art for standup comics. That’s basically my other favorite thing after unlistenable music. Hopefully the trend continues, we’ll see. But anyhow. Here’s this craziness.

SLAM DIEGO COMMIE-CON FIELD REPORT
We’re putting the finishing touches on THE FRIEND ZONE, your sanctuary and ours from the San Diego ComiCon this weekend, with our dear friends at Mixtape Comics and Irene Comics
Booth N-03 in Small Press (listed as “Mixtape Comics”)

All weekend we will be slingin’ free haircuts, bad idea potion and a willingness to employ direct action to make up for comic-cons missing harassment policy (WE RIDE TOGETHER! WE DIE TOGETHER! WE HIT CREEPS WITH BIG FOAM SWORDS TOGETHER!) oh and also we will be doing things to help us pay for the table like slinging brand new screen prints, zines, pins and all kinds of other bullshit from the likes of Ben Passmore, Lindsay Watson, Ferin FickAndy Warner, Ben SnakepitMitch Clem and Nation Of Amanda. Not to mention the horse we rode in on of the rootenist tootenist stickers, patches, shirts, As You Were #1, 2 & 3, screen-prints, a fishbowl full of advice/everclear, healing crystals, hammers both large and small, tonka trucks, hoaxs, screams, a mirror that when you look into it it tells you the future, a mirror thats just a real mirror so you can see how pretty you are, whatever chotchkies we think will make doc hammer like us. so on.

If you can’t get down to Slam Diego, peek them graphics above for tiny previews, and we will premiere all this new artwork full-on with mail-order links when we get back starting July 29th.

Oh shit wait we have a crazy-comin-at-ya-straight-up-like-what? awesome and gigantic new screen-print from Liz Suburbia next week that won’t be ready for San Diego, but fuck it, I’m writing about it right now anyway because its about skateboarding and chopping heads off and you’re gonna freak out. 

COME MAKE FRIENDS UNDER THE FRIEND ZONE BANNER IN SMALL PRESS! FREE HAIRCUTS/TATTOOS AND IRRESPONSIBILITY ELIXIRS! NOT JOKING! NOT SORRY! REGRET THIS IN STYLE!

Drew a thing for a friend of mine that I’m probably not at liberty to share just yet but it DID involve having to draw the Millennium Falcon and an X-Wing from Star Wars and, even though they didn’t come out amazing, they took SO GODDAMN LONG TO DRAW that I wanted to share them on their lonesome.
FUN FACT: When naming this image file, I called it “starwarsships” i.e. “star wars ships” and it made me laugh because there’s a Lifter Puller song called “Star Wars Hips” and they’re probably my favorite band. The end.

I drew a flyer. Street Eaters are amazing.

Nothing Nice to Say

This is the story of one time when I make-believe sold out for a little bit.

Nothing Nice to SayJune 6, 2005
While I’m at it, here’s another rerun of an old strip from the days of yore. I’m reposting this one because an alert reader on the twitters just pointed out to me that now, nine years after this comic was published (holy shit has it been that long??) this dumb joke actually exists. I’m simultaneously elated and horrified.

Someone on my twitter asked if I could post this somewhere, as my website is still down. So here you go, twitter guy, and here YOU go as well tumblr peeps. Enjoy a harrowingly true tale of back when I still dared to eat (fresh) at Subway.

oh it’s nothing, just some contract for a thing I wrote

GIMMEE YR MONIES!

I was watching the first episode of the Leftovers on HBO tonight and whaddaya know but there’s a poster I drew for the Evaporators on the brunette girl’s bedroom door. Fun!
This same poster showed up on an episode of Supernatural once upon a time as well. AND a different Evaporators poster I did showed up on some other show on NBC I think a while back but I don’t remember what the show was called. Alcatraz? Is that a show? I’ve got a screencap around here somewhere.
Anyhow. Just keeping you posted since I know you guys care and all.
