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!

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.
A couple of new art pieces: first is a series of banner pics done for Court Records. Second is the high res upload of the cover art for Zuko’s Story.
An update from PatchTogether about the coyote toy: after much delay, they should be shipped out in a week or two.
Patch Together has uploaded a much better photo of the resin crazy coyote figure. Take a look!

Remember, these are very limited and they’ll only make however many are ordered; they won’t be available for purchase forever. Get your toyote before it’s gone!
I love the more detailed human figures PatchTogether makes (you can see in their portfolio) and am thinking of submitting a character from one of my works. A human character will be more expensive ($50+), but the result should be great. So I ask you:
Hey guys, the painted prototype for the “crazy coyote” resin figure(re: “toyote”) is complete! Pictures can be found here, but I’ve asked PatchTogether to take a better photo of it from a different angle because the ones they chose are kinda unflattering.
The figure is still available for order and will be shipped out in January.
The photos of the sculpt for the coyote figure are up now on the PatchTogether website!
With the release of these photos the special pre-order price is no longer available, so the figure is now $19.95. The completed painted figure should be up soon.
I have a new design up on PatchTogether! Behold:
Go here to vote for the mal coyote figure to be made!
No rush on this one since the crazy coyote toy prototype hasn’t even made yet (and it WILL be made, because it got the required 20 preorders — hooray), but please vote when you can.
deviantartists may be interested to know that while “crazy coyote” is a representation of myself, “mal coyote” is a representation of my good friend maladies, better known as pu-sama. We often joke that we are “twins” who are similar in many ways yet complete opposite in others — one opposite being that I draw in an angular, bright, happy style while she does curly, dark, macabre art. It is also a running joke that crazy coyote is terrified of non-angular things, so mal coyote is like a nightmare to her.
Remember that you can still preorder the crazy coyote for the reduced price of $14.95. Once the prototype has been made, the price will go up to $19.95.
Someone asked me how much profit I make from these toys; I’m not entirely sure. The site says I get 40% of total profits made, but I don’t know how much profit is made from each figure. Honestly, I’m not doing this for the money. I just wanted toys designed by me to be nicely made and easily available to anyone else who wants one!
I admit it — I’ve been using my Twitter more often than LiveJournal lately. It’s just so much easier to update, you know? I strongly recommend following me there (I’m @spacecoyotl) for all the latest news.
But I digress:
“crazy coyote” resin figure available for preorder! Production of the toy will NOT begin until 20 PREORDERS have been met. Your credit card will NOT be charged until the toy has been made.
The price is $14.95 for preorders; after production, it’s $19.95. Currently it’s the most affordable toy at PatchTogether! I’ve seen one of their resin toys in person before (Miss Monster’s Foo Dog) and I can vouch for their quality.
Thanks to EVERYONE who voted and commented to make another dream of mine come true. Now I’m just one step away — I need those preorders so get orderin’!
Fun fact: the first time I drew crazy coyote was on May 2, 2006, in this picture:
As for work, I’ve been working as fast as I can on the Last Airbender prequel because the deadline is tight. This particular book is now up for preorder at Amazon under the working title of “The Last Airbender Movie Prequel“.
