We've got a little under 36 hours to go on the Fairy Tales I Just Made Up kickstarter. We are so close! If you enjoy my sense of humor at all, you NEED a copy of this book! So why don't you pledge a couple dollars, and preorder your very own copy?…

Just look at all this cool bonus swag that's available!

Hey Ray! I emailed you like four years ago and you're still my favorite artist to check upon occasionally. Hope things are doing great!

Hi 4 years ago emailer! I bet your deviant art name and email name are totally different, and I have no context for you! How are you?

Heya Ray! It's me Jaden! Your biggest fan?

Hey Jaden! What's happening!

Nothing really. Just was reading Piranha Pancakes and I noticed that it was changed from the original title "Um I Think Your Piranha Are Broken and other stories" Why is that?

The original title was too many words, good titles are usually short and snappy! So I had a think, and that's what I came up with. Plus, I like having food in my title, food is funny.
