My favorite reads of 2013. 
This is the year I read almost entirely non-fiction. 
Hey, anyone got any recommendations for me based on these books?

Does anyone actually do Pinterst? Because I’m on Pinterest. So if you want to Pinter me, click here.

Everybody I’ve ever been told I look like; part 1

Forge Art came and interviewed me in my studio and took this photo of me looking like a weirdo.forgeartmag:

Yesterday we got a chance to meet up with one of our long time favorite illustrators/animators, Dan Meth, at his apartment/studio. We interviewed him about his projects old and new, and the direction he feels his work has been going recently. He then gave us a tour of his studio, showed us several of his old sketchbooks, a huge piece that he’s working on at the moment, his cat, and some of the framed pieces of art he is most proud of.
We eventually left, but parted with a few gifts and advice about working as an artist that Dan was so gracious to give us!
Part of the interview will come out as a video later next month, along with our interview with Caldwell Tanner, but for now, if you’re not already following him, make sure you check out Dan’s Tumblr.

Are you in Tokyo? 
If so, drop by the very cool “oddities” store Aquvii near Shibuya and pick up a copy of my appropriately named zine “Spirit of America”.

It’s sad when a favorite T-shirt gets to be too smelly to keep wearing.
So I like to take a photo before I chuck it. 

Plaid IsolationI found this old family photo of my brother’s birthday party from 1978. Look how every kid is wearing Plaid! Even our carpet was Plaid! I decided to eliminate everything in the photo that wasn’t Plaid and see what we end up with. And, well.. that’s what we end up with. A pointless experiment, but sometimes you just have to follow through on those weird ideas. fyi: This proves that Plaid comes back into style exactly every 14 years. Think about it: 1978 (see above)… 1992 (grunge) … 2006 (hipsters). PLAID HAS A 14 YEAR ORBIT AROUND THE SUN!
