My “A” cover for Adventure Time #19 is now up! Who likes summer fun?
Sketch from the Adventure Time panel at #TCAF
This is exactly the way I remember it
TCAF is finally here again! This is my absolute favorite comics-related event of the entire year. It’s this Saturday & Sunday (May 11 & 12) at the Toronto Reference Library north of Yonge & Bloor. And it’s FREE!
I’ll be upstairs again, at table 251, between my pals Shelli Paroline & Braden Lamb (of the Adventure Time comics) & the amazing Jess Fink!
It’s been a huge and busy year, so I’ll have a ton of stuff I’m bringing along for sale:
Also, on Sunday, I’ll be a part of this:
Sunday, May 12
4:00 – 5:00pm ADVENTURE TIME!
By popular demand, TCAF’s awesome ADVENTURE TIME panel returns for 2013! Featuring Ryan North, Shelli Paroline, Braden Lamb, and Mike Holmes (Adventure Time: The Comic Book), Meredith Gran (Adventure Time: Marceline and the Scream Queens), Danielle Corsetto (Adventure Time: Playing with Fire), and Michael Deforge and Steve Wolfhard (artists on the Adventure Time cartoon).
Toronto Marriott Bloor Yorkville Hotel, Forest Hill Ballroom
90 Bloor Street East, Toronto, ON M4W 1A7
If you can make it out, please stop by and hi-five me or something, that would be awesome.

jas-ariel asked: I love your work! Have you tried drawing yourself as a Simpson character?
I actually decided not to draw a SImpsons style for two reasons - I used to draw portraits for people in that style about ten years ago, and I just did it way too much to ever want to do it again. Plus there are Simpsons avatar generators out there, so the fun kinda went out of it.
kingrandom-rambles asked: Thanks to that last ask I've been trawling through your "Mikenesses". They're brilliant! You've really captured the various styles.
Thanks a lot!

angimoto asked: i probably know you've seen this but somebody posted "Cartoon Kevin" on fb and i was infuriated that some people didn't understand the concept of "studying a style" and stamping a face on shit -- so I'm glad you nailed it cause i totally won my argument becausa you! (hopefully someday someone out there will angimoto themselves!) btw i love your art bro!!
Aw thanks! Admittedly it took me by surprise, and I’m starting to see it pop up on io9 and stuff all over the place. I’m proud of my project, and it was the reason I got my first big comic book gig, so I can’t be too upset.

Those other feet are my feet, and this shit would make Batman nervous and that dude basically LIVES on the top of buildings

Check the inking callous on my ring finger. Had this guy for the better part of a decade - I tend to grip my brush/pen a little tight.
Anyone else got one of these suckers?
edit - I did just finish up Bravest Warriors issue 8 last night, so it’s a little bigger than normal.
In full color! I always loved the Fleischer Superman.
Happy Birthday Big Blue!
For the man’s birthday - wip.
My new cover for Adventure Time #18! I could do these forever.
