The secret is out!!It is with great pleasure (and relief) that I'm allowed to announce a secret I've been sitting on for the last 2 months!I'm doing Cover # 3 for the official Adventure Time comics! Words can't describe how excited and flattered I am to have this opportunity! When I was first offered the job, I had to take a break from my desk to DANCE. Working on official comics for one of my favorite cartoons has always been a dream of mine. I'm thrilled to be working alongside with webcomic royalty like Ryan North and Emily Carrol, and the other amazingly talented creators on board. <3Here's a little teaser! I'm told the final colors for this cover may be tweaked slightly in the final. Shannon Watters (editor of Boom! comics) requested a more girl-centric cover, so as you can guess I really had a field day with it.I may be doing more work for the comics in the future, but I'm not sure I can comment on that just yet. Stay tuned, an
Adventure Time # 3 and WomanthologyGUYS!!! Look what I got today! Adventure Time #3 with cover B (my cover!) and Womanthology, with my page!It's days like this that make it feel really worthwhile to be a comic artist. There's nothing like seeing your work in print to make it feel "real." <3I've gotten reports from other people that Adventure Time # 3 is in stores and they were able to get the version with my cover already! Check your local comic shop if you're interested in snagging one. "Womanthology" is also worth a look. It's a huge tome dedicated to spotlighting female comic artists. Thanks to a very generous donation by my friend Ted during their Kickstarter, I got one page for myself. (Hence why I crammed stuff about both "Sister Claire" AND "Nightingale" on the same page. XD)
Tip of the Day: is it memorable?In this ever growing art community (especially online) it gets harder and harder to be noticed. You will be noticed when your art and/or the idea behind your art is unique.Think about how memorable your art is. If it looks like a million other things, no one is going to remember it.Sending positive vibes to you all!Bobby
Tip of the Day: Dealing with StressStress is the root for many health problems. It's not necessary. Just do what you need to do. Stop stressing.In high pressure situations if I start stressing I will think what is the worst that could happen and how could I bounce back from that. Once I see that I would still be ok and be able to come back from that difficulty... then the stress disappears. Then I start imagining what would it feel like to be successful and that gets me excited to continue towards my goals.Stress is something that everyone deals with in their own ways but if you don't have an effective way to deal with it, feel free to try my method.Bobby
X-Botch OneAfter recent polls that said sh*tloads (an actual unit of measurement) of people were going to by a PS4 and only the mums of M$ employees were going to buy the VCR shaped Xbox One, Microsoft crapped itself and ditched its plans to charge for use of second-hand games and the requirement for the machine to be kept online, beyond an initial, one-time system set-up.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-22980973M$ are, naturally, trying to pat themselves on the back for this U-Turn, and some people are actually praising them for "listening to consumers".No. Just, no.You don't get to pat yourself on the back for having so much money that you can buy your way out of a complete and utter cluster-f**k. You only get to do that when you use common f**king sense and get it right first time. You spend enough bloody money it! There's no excuse!I'm still at a loss as to which console I want to invest in. It's going to be one or the other
You are all snowflakesDo you ever stop and think about how lucky you are to have a talent or a skill?Most people join deviantart because they have some sort of artistic skill to share with the world, and find other people with similar interests and skills. Same thing happens when you go to college for your specific trade. Everyone you meet there does the same thing you do. Spending a number of years in college and on websites devart and tumblr can leave the impression that all of your peers are just like you. You make a lot of friends with the same talent. I'm a digital artist and know many others~insert type of artwork you do this is relevantWe are digital artists! We paint images from our brains and capture moments of life!We spend more time with Photoshop than with our families!We live in a mansion and drive a BugattiThis is what we do!but when everyone you talk to at school/at work/on the internet does it too, its no longer rare.And the more time you spe
Tip of the Day: Believing is not DoingTip of the Day: A lot of times people might ask for advice and when they are told the answer, their reaction is "Oh I know that already." Believing in something isn't the same as acting upon what you believe in. Successful people DO the things they know they should do whether they like it or not.Sending positive vibes to you all!Bobby

Pokecchi ProjectAs most of you know, last year I put out a Gijinka pokémon book with BadmanBastich. It was super well received so this time (thanks to all of your poll votes) I've decided to put out another one, only this time of the popular trainers from the series ^^But I'd also like some community involvement, so whilst I'm working on the book we've knocked up this cute little character sheet for YOUR trainers.During the nights when I do my warm up sketches, I'll sketch the pokécchi characters that you've drawn on your sheets. If this sounds like fun to you then awesome sauce! I can't wait to see your characters ^^Just link your sheets in this journal and the ones I like best I'll sketch. Obviously the more you draw them doing fun stuff by themselves or with other trainers, the more likely I am to want to doodle them also props to people who don't follow my bad example and actually draw their pokemon.Any questions, just ask <3 Or for a much better description of
On Graduating-Hey guys, I know for a lot of you graduation is coming up super fast, and it seems completely absurd that it's been almost a year ago since I was in that boat. I well remember the two options presented to me:1) Get a studio job. Preferably close to home.2) Move back in with my parents. Possibly get a day job or something.I just wanted to remind ...whoever is reading this... that there are about a gazillion alternatives. In fact, any possible train of actions you can conceive of is an option. It's hard to think of options not presented to you as options, but you really can go anywhere and do anything. This is the only time in our lives when we don't have any greater obligations- we don't have a wife and kids to provide for, no company that would collapse without us, our bodies can handle sleeping on a springy old couch for a while. This is EXACTLY when you should take a gigantic risk because the only thing y
