Meat Bun, known for their stylish video game T-shirts, has just released their 20XX Line. I drew four of the designs! Three were commissioned by Meat Bun (Real Soviet Damage, Honda Onsen and Emperor of Muay Thai) and one was just something I drew for fun (Shao Khalvin) that got made into a T-shirt. Check them out!

It looks sweet!
I was chosen to do the art a week before the store opening. I came up with the concept, they picked the characters, and I drew it on the weekend.
I’ve never seen such a huge print of my work before. I went with a sketchy style because I knew that if I tried to make everything look neat, the slightest imperfection would drive me nuts since it’s so easy to see.
If you’re a Vancouverite or just visiting, come see! It’s only about a block or two away from Waterfront Skytrain station and easy to spot. They sell tons of retro games and new games, too.
I’m also going to do a “villains” version for their New Westminster location, so stay tuned.
Been busy with various projects, but here’s some new art.
My art has been selected to be in the upcoming UDON Mega Man Tribute book! It will premiere at San Diego Comic-Con this July.
I won’t post my winning piece yet, but here are three other entries I entered that didn’t make it (because only one piece per artist was chosen).
More game fanart:
First is a celebratory pic I did after beating Gyakuten Kenji 2, aka Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth 2! CAPCOM announced recently that they won’t localize it, so there’s an online petition for fans to sign.
Second are some female versions of Left 4 Dead special infecteds. More info in the description!
Third is an ode to my favourite game series, Monkey Island.
My “Smiles for Japan” charity commission project was a big success! I raised $2,500 in total. $1,300 went to Japan Society, and $1,200 went to Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders).
The result can be seen in this giant collage! It’s neat seeing them all together, eh?

My newest piece is an homage to Bravo’s new reality show, “Work of Art: The Next Great Artist”, that just finished its first season.
I was pleasantly surprised since the first ep by how BSing doesn’t impress the judges, and how much my tastes matched the judges’ despite my eye that is untrained when it comes to conceptual art. If you’re like me and enjoy art and competitive reality TV, be sure to check it out.
The pic is spoiler-free, and if you really like it, you can buy it as a print!
Anime Evolution has come to a successful close! My “Myths About Being a Mangaka” went well, and I was able to sell every book I brought and gave away all my Simpsonzu postcards (I had an artist’s alley table I wasn’t aware of until the night before the con, so I apologize for the lack of notice).
My friends and I have received our coyotes and they look great! The photos don’t do them justice.
If you haven’t ordered one, you can still buy one at the Patch Together store. There are only 20 toyotes left, though, so hurry!

Last month I did pro bono work for Universities Allied for Essential Medicines, a non-profit organization run by med students who help make essential medicines more accessible for third world countries. They had the concept and layout roughed out for their new T-shirts but needed an artist to execute it so I stepped in.
