"Ingenue" For The Beehive Society’s Party Mixtape Art Show at Asterisk San Francisco!
Available Here
The concept behind this one-night show is for each artist to submit a song for the playlist, and then we would be randomly assigned another artist’s choice of song. I was assigned DJ Okawari’s “After School”.

Putting together the perfect mix tape is serious business. This is a show to celebrate that ritual. Party Mixtape is a one-night-only pop-up show that revolves around the concept of handcrafting and sharing your personal mix. For this show, we’ve asked each participating artist to create a piece of art interpreting a favorite song… but not their own. In the true spirit of mixtapes, we shuffled things up. Each artist submitted their favorite party jam. We took that playlist, randomized it and reassigned each song to a different artist to bring to life. On September 19th, come party with us and see how 32 different artists interpret some rockin’ tunes at Asterisk SF Gallery. Oh, and get hungry during the show? Don’t worry, we’ve got MogoBBQ out front to satisfy your cravings.  Hope to see you there! Click HERE to RSVP to the event. Be sure to connect with us to get all the latest updates and announcements too!   ______________ Join the hive!FacebookInstagramTwitter

If you’re in the Bay Area and are looking for something to do next Friday (9/12), might I humbly suggest this show? :)
I’ll be debuting my new piece, “Ingenue”, for it… inspired by the song "After School" by DJ Okawari.
Here’s a WIP to whet your appetite….

"Mars Phoenix Warrior"
For Meltdown Comics/Nerdist Showroom’s MEATBALL HEAD Sailormoon show. I designed this wraparound phoenix armor when I was 18-years-old, for a comic project that never came to fruition. So when I decided to paint Sailor Mars, I just thought it was the perfect opportunity to use it as an enhancement to her existing badassery. :) I like to envision Rei’s transformation sequence into the Mars Phoenix Warrior as being similar to Iron Man, as their Awesome levels are pretty much equivalent. Also, I never realized before I painted this how much Sailor Mars has in common with Katniss Everdeen.

This is my cover for the Sherbet Trade Paperback, a collection of every existing Sherbet Lock story +100 pages of new material.
You can check out the official Tumblr for some existing webcomics of Sherbet’s capers.  If you’re into paranormal mysteries with a clever dark (and vaguely British) humor, you might like Sherbet!
Think of her as Sherlock Holmes meets Fox Mulder, but as an ethnically-ambiguous lesbian.
 Help make this happen by pledging to the Kickstarter now :)

It seems as though a lot of people share in our enthusiasm for bringing the world’s first lesbian paranormal detective from the retro-future to the printed page.

We’ve already run out of the Early Bastard Special and many of the limited prints are selling…

Not only have we run out of the early-bird special, but the Sherbet Trade Paperback also been chosen as a Kickstarter Staff Pick!  Wheee!

But we still need your help in making this book happen, so make sure to check out the awesome art & rewards and consider being a part of the Next Big Thing in comics. ;)

As Howard Kleinman says, “Fans of female lead characters, Sherlock Holmes, paranormal mystery, comedy, steampunk, crazy monsters. You should totally check out Sherbet.”

The Sherbet Kickstarter is Finally Live.

m-v-b:

After a lot of planning and collecting of amazing work from amazing people, we’re finally launching the Sherbet Kickstarter. Our goal is to print a run of the first Sherbet Trade Paperback. I wrote it, Joshua Mathus drew it and you want to read it, even if you don’t know it yet. 

CLICK HERE TO BACK US!

It’s about a lesbian detective from the future who solves paranormal mysteries. 

You deserve this. 

If I didn’t do the cover for this book, I’d still totally back it because it’s hilarious, clever, and amazing. 100+ never-before-seen pages of Sherbet Lock comics!

Morrigan and Lilith, of Darkstalkers fame, recline in what can only be assumed as their natural environment. Partially inspired by Henry Fuseli’s The Nightmare, this piece portrays the pair of succubi in a somnolent position reminiscent to The Nightmare’s woman being attacked by an incubus. This begs the question: Are the succubi victims, or seemingly unassuming predators laying in wait?

Prints of this piece have been officially released for Bottleneck Gallery’s “8-Bit & Beyond: 2” exhibition!
