Hey all! The new issue of Sundae is online, which means it’s time for an all-new BANGS comic by yours truly. Since this is the October/November issue, this time around you’re getting a Halloween comic. Check it out at Sundae. You’ll find the comic on page 28.



Ice Cream Napping

Here’s something I just drew for the upcoming issue of Sundae Magazine. This issue is gonna kill! Lots of pretty pictures all over!


I Have An Etsy!

After threatening to do it for months, I have finally done it! I have opened an Etsy store! I currently have 3 prints listed, all featuring original illustrations that you have probably seen here on my blog. The prints are roughtly 11×17 (more specifically, 10.75×16.5), and are glossy & suitable for hanging, framing, etc.! View them here.

I will sign & doodle on the back of each one before it ships, and I will ship anywhere in the US for free!

Current prints available are of BANGS, RAD RAZ and my Richard Dunn portrait. There are only 4 of each print in stock, so get ’em while they last! View more images after the jump! Continue reading

Sundae Magazine: July 2010 Issue

The issue is done! As usual, I did the layout & illustrations (including one of Andrew W.K. on page 30) and an original comic in the back of the issue. In this issue I also wrote the piece on Best Coast (thanks to Bethany, who made time for an interview with us) and a second round of “Two Step: Two Ingredient Recipes” (this time featuring radlers, horchata con ron, and pernod + mineral water).

Check out this and our past issues at Sundae Mag. Now to get to work on the August issue.


Bangs & Ice Cream

Here’s that sketch from the other day, in FULL COLO – wait, it’s grayscale. But that’s just the “look”. This is not from a comic or anything, it’s actually just a drawing done for fun.

Fun Trivia: This is the first full body drawing of Bangs, who is usually sitting behind a table/desk. Why is she usually sitting behind a table/desk? Initially it was to give the comic the feel of Bangs addressing the audience via webcam/YouTube. I thought that aesthetic might feel both contemporary and personal. Then I just kept doing it. Also it’s funny to me that Ice Cream is always walking around on the table top. Now you know!


Bangs Preview: The July Issue

Working on a new BANGS comic for the July Issue of Sundae Magazine. Here is Bangs talking to her best pal, Ice Cream.

Also, I recently finished the artwork for the cover and I’m totally excited about it! I will post it on here as soon as the issue is out, but for now the cover artwork is a secret!

By the way, I recently redesigned the Sundae Magazine website layout, so have a look and enjoy!


Sketchbook: Bangs & Ice Cream

Here’s a little sketch of Bangs sitting down next to Ice Cream. I’ll be drawing the Bangs comic for the July issue of Sundae Magazine rather soon. The July issue will also feature interviews with Wavves and Best Coast (just interviewed Bethany yesterday!), so get excited, people!
