Yeah so… remember that time when a few of you asked how you could get a print of my Ninja Turtles… Well now there’s a way that you could keep one of my TMNT illustrations close… like on your chest, close. I’ve entered them into the Threadless TMNT contest. So if one of these designs is chosen, you’ll have the opportunity to cop the art without me getting sued! You can see them all and vote here. More turtles after the bump.
From April 9th through 14th I’ll be showing with some comrades at Superchief Gallery. Shortly after, on the 15th, I’ll be speaking with bandes dessinee auteur, Alex Alice at the Butler Library at Columbia University.
So, first off, my apologies for the confusion. I don’t know if you heard, but we here in NY had a little weather. I knew you needn’t bother traipsing around the aftermath to signings and galleries when you could be draining your basements, helping a neighbor drain their basement or helping the MTA drain their basements, so I’ve rescheduled the Forbidden Planet signing and the Superchief Gallery. The signing at Forbidden Planet NYC will be held on 11.14.12 from 6:30-8pm. I appreciate the patience for everyone who’s following me, I will have some special goodies for the first dozen people to show up to the signing. I won’t say what they are, but they’re free so what do you care?
As for the Superchief Gallery show. Well, thing is, I’m still working that out. I appreciate your patience. Please keep an eye out here and on my tumblr for a blast as soon as I have something concrete to tell you.
Thanks to everyone who came out over the weekend. It was nice to talk to some of the people who help pay my rent.
here’s some concept art I did a few years back of Petruchio from Prince of Cats, my next book from Vertigo…:
…Kase2 inspired Petruchio
I’m not sure if Fuma lost his money in the Kouga-Kola Machine or if he’s just succumbing to his hate for the franchise… either way, his kicking the shit out of the machine.
Yeah, so… My database got hacked and I lost about two years of posts, so… that’s why, if you look closely, you’ll notice two years of posts have disappeared. It happens to the best of us, right? So kids, the lesson is remember to backup your data.
But, I’m back… and I’m gonna keep this site dedicated to my work from here on out. You can see more of my musings and random interests over at my new tumblr, d-pi.tumblr.com. Also Gratuitous Ninja: Loan Sharks is still up and I plan on having some new GratNin news in early March.
So thanks for being patient, I appreciate the support and all of the cats who keep checking for me. It’s gonna be an exciting year. I’ve just completed an adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked this Way Comes and I’ve completely finished inking Prince of Cats. Now I am excited to start several new, exciting projects. I will check in here occasionally to give peeks and stuff.

Back in the game like Jack Lalanne. Don’t know the name? …don’t rack your brain. I had some techdiffs over the weekend, if you noticed… keep an eye peeled today and tomorrow. It’s a news day.
