That Ain’t a Job

1770-20141203-ThatAintAJob

During the last contact period for my low-residency MFA program I had the opportunity to see a presentation by the amazing Rudy Gutierrez. During his talk he told a story about a discussion he had with someone, who had asked him what he did. After explaining what he did as an illustrator the person replied, “That ain’t a job.” Rudy replied, “you’re right, but it’s a living.” I’m glad I am lucky enough to have illustration be the way I make my living.

I launched a new shirt with Cotton Bureau. This design is currently a pre-order, we’ll need to sell a minimum of 12 shirts for it to go to print. If you want to grab one of these make sure you order before sales close on December 15th — tell your friends!
The design is available on men’s and women’s American Apparel shirts (in both black-aqua and tri-black) and black crewneck sweatshirts!

Time-bombs of Pain

1769-20141202-TimebombofPain

I’m not sure where I heard this originally, I think it was Louis C.K., but after a quick google search—I still don’t know. The gist of it is, we love our pets so much, but the time they are alive is so short in the context of our lives. So, they’re all just adorable, little time-bombs waiting to explode our hearts.
