Taiwannabe

Do you live in Taiwan, or know someone from Taiwan, or are an ambassador to the UN from a country with healthy diplomatic relations with Taiwan and have no scruples against using your position to pull a few strings, magazine-wise?

THEN YOU ARE IN LUCK MY FRIEND.

dpi Magazine, the great Taiwanese journal of illustration art, has recently released their 2013 Bologna Book Fair retrospective, which includes a short interview with your's truly and a selection from my book Mel Goaté and the Purple Velvet Tuxedo. I can't remember what I said in the interview, but I'm sure it's brilliant and well worth a trip to Google Translate. Also included are other, not-me illustrators from the Fair whose work'll make you feel like you've been socked in the eyeballs with a rainbow.

So if you've got 480 Taiwanese dollars laying around, pick up a copy today! And I promise that next post will have nothing to do with either Bologna or magazines.

In preparation for my trip to Bologna Book Fair, I spent the last few weeks getting my portfolio into gear. This included a 20-day tenancy in the museum exhibition space above. Forty different exhibits on display there, not counting the canine. Took forever not only to think up interesting curios to show, but also to organize them on the walls and shelves. It was all worth it, though, because now my children's book boasts both a human skull and a shining red butt. You're welcome, parents.

Alright, I'm off! Wish me luck!

La Marioneta on Wall Blank!

Sorry about the missing Sketcharoo yesterday, I promise I’ll make it up to you by posting TWO Sketcharoos next Monday! In the meantime, I’ve got some exciting news for all my loyal readers:

That’s right, this week my painting “La Marioneta” is being offered on Wall Blank, a website that creates limited edition artist prints that sell for ONE WEEK ONLY! Act fast if you want to get yourself a copy of my print, because as we all know the demand for puppet-related, Spanish-themed illustrations is HIGH.

Special shout out to Zach Bulick for introducing me to the site. A beautiful piece by him is actually being sold on Wall Blank this week as well, marking the first time we’ve appeared in public together since I leapt over his head at James Moes’ wedding during the Zach/Zack Dance-Off. PWNED!

Anyway, what are you waiting for?! GO BUY IT!
