TOWERS OF NUMAR is now available!
We just received a big shipment of our new book, The
Towers of Numar. When we saw how well it turned
out, our palpitating little hearts filled with glee!
And to top it all, the response to our April solicitation
through Diamond's Previews, has been phenomenal. We've
received our best pre-orders ever! A big thanks to all
of you who support my work. You make it possible for
us to keep publishing these crazy books!
should be able to find The
Towers of Numar very shortly at your local comic
shop or bookstore. You can also order
the book directly from us (free shipping to the US!).
If you would like me to sign it, just request it with
your order (there's no extra charge).
UPDATE: Second Sculpture Announced
pre-orders for our first collaboration with Sideshow
Toys are going through the roof! As a matter
of fact, it looks like the sculpture might be an instant
sell out! Sideshow is so pleased that they've already
started work on the second sculpture, based once again
on one of my Insanely Twisted Rabbits (See
picture on the right). Don't miss out... or be prepared
to pay high prices on ebay later on! Click

I received a package in the mail from my good friend
Bob Miller. In it, I found, among other
things, a copy of this month's issue of Starlog
(May #310). I got a big kick out of reading one of the
news items on page eight called, Sequels and
Remakes. Check it out! The issue also features
a great article by Bob on the Animatrix
shorts (Plugging Into the Animatrix). Thanks
a lot for the package Bob, and congratulations on another
great piece of journalism!
did the drawing on the right for Shane Corn's upcoming
sketch book Peanut Butter and Monster Sandwich.
I met Shane about a year ago at a signing at The
Los Angeles Festival of Books. He expressed great
enthusiasm for my work and invited me to one of his
sketching party (which was a lot of fun). Since then,
Shane has shown up to many of my signings and has been
very supportive of my work. When he dropped me an email
asking if I could contribute to his upcoming monster
sketchbook, I was happy to say "sure, why not!"
Butter and Monster Sandwich will
premiere at this year's San
Diego's Comic Con. It will be 36 pages, featuring
monster sketches (and more) by Shane Corn
as well as drawings by guest artists Robert
Snyder, Josh Hughes, Joe
Escott, Forest Stearns and
myself. It will be digest size and will retail for $7.00.
For more info, just email Shane.
here to read my latest interview. It was conducted
in the form of a web chat by Brittney Gearheard
Edge Presentations. It's pretty weird!
Addition to the Fan
cute little rendition inspired by one of my
character, while cruising the web. It's by Francesco
Here's what he had to say about it:
Elephant is a spare time model. I began it
when I saw some freak, amazing designs from Michel Gagné.
I really liked some of the designs in the Frenzied
Fauna book so I tried to model some stuff, and
even if its not the same it´s rather similar and
begun with that idea."
received several emails of people telling me they enjoy
the paintings featured in the gallery.
I'm glad there's an audience for my weird artsy-fartsy
indulgences! While I was very active doing fine arts
(1996-99), I kept meticulous records of all my experiments.
One day, I will do an art book that will feature these.
In the meantime, I'll keep adding more images to the
site as time permits. Here are four additions to the
featuring paintings that were done in 1996 and 1997.
