Two of these things are not like the others…
Here are some of the sketch covers I did at #ECCC! Thanks to everyone who stopped by, thank you to all the amazing professionals and awesome artists who put up with my questionable conversational skills and croaky singing voice, and thank you to BOOM! Studios for having me! Seattle is a super cool city and I was happy to visit it again.

Movies I saw in 2012! I saw… a lot, for me. I bolded my favorites; the rest I mostly liked, a few I wish I’d saved money and time on. I hope you guys had a fun year filled with great entertainment! I think I did.

I may be late on this but has anyone else noticed the female bands/female fronted bands homages Marceline and The Scream Queens covers make?
:D It was Marceline/AT comics editor Shannon's idea and I just about flipped some tables when she sent me a list of suggested covers. (Meredith did the Blondie SDCC exclusive cover, which is totally one of my favorites!)

Stress-relief doodle. Animu? Animu!
I saw some really neat fanart of Ralph with a portal gun, and then I guess this happened?
I’m pretty sure GLaDOS would be missing the “dangerous, mute lunatic” immediately.

Marceline and the Scream Queens #5 is out Wednesday, Nov. 14th! Pick it up for more awesomeness from Meredith Gran, PLUS a backup comic by the incredible Polly Guo.
I don’t have a sketch for this one, but you might notice that the location of Marceline’s teethmarks had to be changed after my lineart was sent to Lisa Moore to color.
Weird to think that Adventure Time’s target demo was probably in utero or a sparkle in someone’s eye when this album came out…

So…some “totes whatever nbd” news breaking on Comics Alliance today. That’s right, my dudes…in January, I will editing the 6-ISSUE FIONNA & CAKE COMIC BOOK MINI-SERIES. Written and drawn by…wait for it…Natasha Allegri.
YES. THAT NATASHA ALLEGRI.
This is real. This is real life. I have not been this excited about showing something to you since we announced my sweet baby MARCELINE AND THE SCREAM QUEENS, written and drawn by Meredith “Wicked Rad” Gran. Which has its 4th issue out today, actually, featuring featuring back-up stories from Yuko, Ananth and Kate! Go down to your local comic shop! BUY IT. HUG IT. And then go back to your F&C daydreams.
Thank you so much for supporting the ADVENTURE TIME comic and getting us here. We’ll keep blowing your faces away in 2013. That’s no goal, girls and guys…that is a flippin’ PROMISE.
I drew this cover! I feel totally unworthy of being in any way attached to the awesomeness of this project! But I drew it! Colored again by the amazing Lisa Moore.
This will actually be my last cover for the foreseeable future—the dayjob’s been kicking my butt, and I figured it’d be best to bow out instead of sacrificing my (and possibly Shannon’s) sanity. This was a great cover to go out on. :) Thank you so much, Shannon and BOOM!, for the opportunity!

The first Amethyst short airs this coming Saturday morning, October 13th! It was in the TV Guide magazine, so it must be true!

Do you guys like Baaaatman? Animation? Action, adventure, drama? Some good ol’ ojisan moe (if you don’t know what that is don’t google it, especially if I work with you)? Then you should check out Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 1, out on DVD/bluray and also available on iTunes this week!
Jay Oliva, his team of storyboard artists and revisionists (including the amazing Kat, who did the above art), Studio MOI, and everybody involved in the production did an awesome job. I’m looking forward to part 2!
…there’s something pretty cathartic about adorable-ing Frank Miller designs. Kat, you are the best.

Sometimes when I’m working, I will go cross-eyed and when I wake up stuff like this has appeared in my work file. (And then, weeks later, I will waste more time by posting it on tumblr.)

Working late! Here is an oldish doodle.
Whoa whoa how is it SDCC time already?! Are you guys ready?! (I’m not!!)
I will be at the BOOM! Studios booth on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning drawing custom sketch covers alongside Shelli, Braden, and Mike Holmes (!!). (I sketched the above cover at ECCC—man was I happy to get to draw Ricardio.) I’ll also be signing with a big ol’ party of Adventure Time and Marceline and the Scream Queens comic book artists on Saturday from 5pm to 6pm. For more Adventure Time and Scream Queens SDCC funtimes, check out the BOOM!Pen SDCC post.
The DC Nation panel is on Sunday at 1pm. I thiiink the focus is going to be primarily on upcoming shows Teen Titans Go! and Beware the Batman, but there will also be sizzle reels for Green Lantern, Young Justice, and the next wave of DC Nation shorts. I think the YJ reel might make fans do backflips. As for the shorts, I am looking forward to catching a glimpse of a certain gemstone-themed magical girl…
If I’m not at the BOOM! booth or attending a panel, I’ll be wandering around spending my money on books, prints, and food I can’t eat. Or sleeping curled up in a nice, quiet corner. Mmm, sleep.
I hope everyone has a safe and fabulous weekend!

Another process post! Here is the Diamond Comics exclusive SDCC cover for Marceline and the Scream Queens. This one had a pretty quick turnaround, so I ended up scribbling a few very rough thumbnails on some post-its before going with this idea. Lisa totally made this cover with her colors!
I don’t know what’s going on with the previews (lines why), but the images should work when viewing them at full-view.
