Since I've moved I've been getting a lot of really awesome stuff in the mail! The first thing I got a few weeks ago was a really sweet mini-comic/sticker/drawing package from my amazing cartoonist friend CHRIS DOWNES all the way from Australia! His drawings are so good it's crazy.
That's one of the sickest envelope drawings I've seen in my LYFE!
Then I got a package from my close friend PATRICK J in Columbia, SC. He sent some sweet drawings on cigarette boxes and the new KID TRAILS cd Winlow. I love how he draws, but the case he sent the cd in looks extra good! I love the messy texture.
Another awesome webcomic sent some of his stuff from NY! MATT GRAUPMAN also does daily comics, but his are colored! so much work. Anyways I thought that he drew them bigger then I did because there is so much more detail and because they are so clean, so I was SHOCKED when he sent one of his originals!
He draws just as small as I do! He writes so tiny I can't believe it's legible. Seeing the original made me appreciate his comics so much more, the line quality is perfect.
Lastly, I got a package from my Chicago friend Erin. She sent a really funny mini-comic and an awesome sewing/drawing that she posted on her blog a while back:
Haha that's such a good drawing of me! And there's my address so now everyone can start mailing me stuff, ha. I'm down for trades! Speaking of trades here are a few more small paintings I recently made to send to people:
I think I mentioned this, but I met a really awesome Illustrator on tour in Seattle. Her name is KINOKO! Check out the cool thing she drew in my pocket sketchbook:
And the thing I drew when we drew together:
She also makes really GOOD MUSIC and has a BLOG. She even made a BLOG POST ABOUT ME!
And finally, here is my comic for today:
Way to end this on a high note.
Now that what I call a blog post! *whew*
