Prints, mugs, leggings, and more goodies!

Hi everybody! Hopefully you've all been having an awesome summer.
I'm happy to announce that I've reactivated my Society6 account, and have tons of new work up!! Eee I'm so excited. �� Here are some pictures of what I've made~

Some products I made from my Mad Max piece:

I like how suitable my Destiny piece turned out for some things:

 Ooh and I'm suuuuper happy with how these turned out as phone cases:

If you would like any goodies with my work on it, please come by my shop!
I've customized every image for the products and made sure they fit and are good quality. And of course I'll be adding more products as I make more art in time.

May I mention, too, that Society6 has such cool product templates, and it looks like their quality is very good. All the prints are glicee, and they even offer phone cases, tshirts, and leggings... did I mention LEGGINGS?! Guh. I can't wait to shop for some stuff form other artists myself.

I hope everyone enjoys these goodies! Meanwhile, I'll do my best to make more stuff ❤❤

Heroes Con

And one more Heroes Con is now wrapped up!!
Did I mention that I drove to Heroes this year? Heroes is in Charlotte, North Carolina. I love in Austin, Texas right now. (The reason is I looked for flights too late so I couldn't afford to fly.) Eyup. That was an 18 HOUR DRIVE. Fun!

Here's a map of our little road trip. Damn this country is huge.

Anywho. Of course the con was as awesome as always, and made the insane journey worth it! It was great to see all my artist friends again and reconnect with the comics community. I heart you all.��
Here was my Artist Alley table:



And here are some convention sketches that I did!


 Thank you so, so much to everyone who came by, whether for a commission or print or just to talk. I had a wonderful time.

Here's be being a dork with some cool artists. ;D
 Till next year, Charlotte!

Casino Bunnies (whaaaaat?)

Yay! Guess what? I finally have clearance to post some of the stuff I've been doing for work!
(Yes I really do have a day job making art, I am not sitting around doing nothing... I just can't post most of my recent work until the games are all released... haha.)

Here are some assets that I made for a casino slot called Funny Bunny Money. ;D
All the artwork is copyrighted to Cadillac Jack!


Beware of blaringly bright colors that attempt to reach out of the monitor and singe your retinas.

New Manga Studio comic demo

I made a new process video!
This is a recording of my process for one panel in a recent comic project. The comic was a scroll-style one-shot piece, that told the lore behind an indie game production I'm contributing to.


Gah, I really hope I'm getting better at this recording thing! >.<

The final comic (without text) is as below:

I'm very happy with how the paper texture worked out. The emperor's gold color coding was also a lucky gamble. I hope you like it!

Unavowed Sneak Peek

So, those of you who have known me for a few years may have heard of some original graphic novels that I've been working on in the background. Shaman Child was one of the stories; the other is something more mature, more serious.
I've spent a lot of time honing the story and getting into the character's heads; it just hadn't felt "right" and "finished", until recently. And I've finally started drawing the pages!
Though I hope to release this book online, I'm sad to say that it won't be available for a while, because I'm going to try a new scene-by-scene updating format instead of page-to-page. BUT, I may keep on posting sneak peeks along the way!
So have a look at some parts of the first chapter- no spoilers, guaranteed ;)

Uniforms and Fantasy Worlds #1


Here's a series of small illustrations that I'm starting!
I'm also selling these on my new Etsy shop... *hint hint* ;P Just a little venture that I'm trying out.
I've realized that since I work digitally so much nowadays, for both freelance and for my day job, I don't draw with traditional media much anymore. But my cartooning training started out with just pencil, ink, and paper, and I wnat to get back to that.

Hopefully I'll be able to do some more of this theme, and make it a series. :)

Cheers!

Game project on Steam Greenlight!

Aww yeah! An indie game that I have been doing concept art for for the past year and a half or so just launched on Steam Greenlight!
As of now (1/29)  this game is still live!

It's a beautiful, well done game, everyone. If you have a Steam account, please vote for it or at least check it out and give your judgement then. ;) I can say that the people on this project have put a lot into it. Everyone is a working professional in their field who contributes to this project after work and on weekends.

Hanako is (so far) a team-based PC game, with options for several different warrior classes. The story is set in Sengoku (Warring States) era Japan, and follows two battling samurai clans.

Here's some of the art that I've done for it. :)

Podcast feature, and trip to Japan/ Taiwan

Hello all! It's been a while again.
Apologies for the silence. The new job in Austin has kept me quite busy; I've been doing a lot of work for it, but none of it is material that I can post just yet, so that'll have to wait.

In some exciting news, I was actually just in Japan for Christmas, Comiket, and New Years; and I got to meet up with Deconstructing Comics, a fantastic manga/comics podcast that I've been a long-time listener of. We sat down over coffee, and talked extensively about comics and comic conventions, including all the unique differences to comic cons between Japan and America. Give it a listen HERE!

And here's a dinosaur sketch I just did to make up for the recent lack of artwork. :)


 And here are a few pictures from my recent trip, which included Tokyo, Kyoto, and then a week in Taiwan. What a fantastic vacation it was. QuQ <3 br="">

Convention sketches, and upcoming CHEW special

As always, Heroes Con was an exhausting but fantastic show. Thanks to everyone who dropped by and asked for a commission!
But before any more convention stuff, here's a piece I just finished for the upcoming Warrior Chicken Poyo special (for CHEW, published by Image), that should be out for Comic Con. Pick it up if you see it! The other pieces inside are an absolute riot!


And now for some con sketches~
