Flight 6
July 25, 2009

Flight 6 came out this week. I haven't seen the book yet but I heard good things about it. Along with a bunch of fantastic comics from some of my favorite artists, it features a 42-page chapter of "The Saga of Rex". You can see a 14-page preview of "Soulmates" here.

The wonderful cover is painted by Kazu Kibuishi.

Recently, someone sent me a link to Sporepedia, a place where Spore enthusiasts can upload their Spore creations. So far, over 100 millions creations have been uploaded and the variety is astounding. While looking through the site, I was surprised to encounter several creatures based on my own designs! Here's a selection inspired by two of my books: Insanely Twisted Rabbits and Frenzied Fauna: From A to Z.

Xeko Lauches New Website

June 28, 2009

As many of you know, for the past few years, I've been doing a lot of illustrations for the trading card game, Xeko. In addition to the card illustrations, I also designed the components for their original website which lauched a few years ago.

A few months back, they decided to upgrade the website and once again, they asked me to design the various components (navigational bar, buttons, backgrounds, etc). Go check it out.

And for all the Xeko fans out there, you might be interested in checking out my book, Wildlife from the Hot Spots, which collects my best illustrations from the popular game. And as a final note, I'd also like to point out that we still have a few of the long sold-out Madagascar Starter Sets available.

Demon Dog Rabbit on eBay
June 26, 2009

One of my most requested item is without a doubt the Demon Dog Rabbit Statue that Sideshow and I did a few years ago. The sculpture was a big hit and sold out upon release. Whenever I do a signing or a lecture, there's always someone asking if I have one stashed away that I wouldn't mind selling. Well, I don't, but my local comic retailer did. In fact, he just put it on eBay.

The bid is currently $9.99 so this might be a good oportunity to get one at a decent price. Check it out here.

Brett's Tattoo
June 25, 2009

The other day, my good friend Brett called from Iowa to tell me that he was going to get a tattoo of two of my designs that he had cobbled together.

When he sent me an image of what he had done, I almost got sick. I never do tattoos for people (please don't ask) but what he was going to have permanently tattooed on his body was so hideous that I had no choice but to agree to quickly come up with a better design. I fired up my Cintiq tablet and fifteen minutes later, I email him this design which he immediately got tattooed on his lower back.
