Here’s one last Mars Attacks sketchbook sketch. I might put up some greatest hits from the 200+ cards I drew. You can check out my full color return* cards at my portfolio or even snatch them up on eBay!
Also appearing on this page are early designs and notes for a Drawn-Out Storytelling segment by Andy Christie. This is hands-down one of the best stories I’ve illustrated for the live storytelling+drawing+music show, and also includes some of my best work for them. Also it takes place in the ’70s and has half-naked people all over it. We’ll be reprising it Tuesday, July 24th, at The Tank in Midtown Manhattan. Also performing that night will be my boy Dan McCool accompanying the State’s Kevin Allison with real animation! Here’s some more info.
*Returned by Topps to me so I can get in on some of that collecter scrill.

I did this a few months ago, for the cover of a chapbook sold to raise funds to help the Main Street Museum of White River Junction, VT recover from last summer’s flood. The book featured HP Lovecraft’s story, Whisperer in Darkness, stills from a recent fan movie based on the tale, and drawings of the monstrous Mi-Gos [above].

What does any of that have to do with flood relief? Well, the story takes place soon after Vermont’s previous great flood, in 1927, when Mi-Go corpses are found floating downstream in the Green Mountains. These creatures are “hideously crablike” alien-gods who get up to who-knows-what kind of ancient awfulness in the woods.
The drawing was commissioned by Steve Bissette and Jen Vaughn. Jen also printed these, with glow in the dark ink. I have a few of these unbound prints. Anybody want one? I’ll include it with your next comic order.

Since last I wrote, I’ve been jamming out an anthology comic with friends Josh, Betsey, and Ben (the last two need to get their internet asses in gear, so I ain’t got shit to link to). It’s about how a cult rock musical from the ’70s has affected people throughout the decades. The movie’s about a hermaphrodite alien who comes to earth, falls in love with a farm boy, and changes his gender (because, obviously, her alien vagina isn’t compatible with a human penis, but her alien phallus fits just fine in a man’s vaj).
So here’s the cover, before it got type. I’ll show you the final after it’s got some gold screen printed onto it.
