Back in February a friend of mine, Kurt Belcher, contacted me and asked if I could recreate a comic logo for him as part of a project that he was working. Stink is published by Source Point Press, and they had a title/logo designed by Sheldon Vella, but needed a scalable version for use on the book title, spine, and various promotional materials. It was a fun design to recreate, even though it was not a design of my own.
Contents of the graphic novel itself are by Chuck Messinger and Kurt Belcher. The story is of a post-apocalyptic world where three weird friends – chain-smoking unicorn Ray, failed fairy godfather Bundy, and evil cursed prince Michael – make their way in the aftermath. Check it out for sale now on Amazon!

I have not been as good about posting updates in recent months as I would like to be, but I could not let today pass without maintaining my blog tradition. I have posted at least one brand new, specially-themed illustration on every Friday the 13th since beginning the blog back in 2014. Today will be no exception!
I’m a fan of Matt Groening‘s Futurama and Bender’s cry of “Kill all the humans!” popped into my head this week when I was trying to decide what to draw for today. As you can see, I believe Bender is pleased with himself for having done his best to follow Jason‘s legendary example. Fry, however, seems to be carefully considering the situation. 🙂 This one is completely hand-drawn on Canson 98-lb 9×12-in paper, using pencil + markers to finish.
I hope to get back to regularly blogging again soon, and I have a huge backlog of things I’ve been doing that I need to get posted. In the meantime, please let me know what you think of this one and remember, if you’d like an original commission by me or would like to hire me as an Illustrator, please use the Contact page and let me know as much as you can about your request.
