First off, here's the official teaser trailer for the sequel of "How To Train Your Dragon": If you want to see it on the big screen and in 3D, it should play in front of Turbo, opening next week. I should be at the San Diego comicon next week, from Wednesday to Saturday (will be absent on Sunday). This year, I'll be hanging around the Gallery Nucleus booth, in a new location in the hall: booth 2743, close to IDW and Image Comics. We'll have great guests at the table: Olly Moss Mike Mitchell Becky Dreistadt Kazu Kibuishi http:/

I was fortunate to work with Perry Maple and WoonYoung Jung collaboratively to bring about the little exclusive, online mini stories. The last one, out biggest collaboration, just got posted today. I posted a progess lineart for it: :thumb338799750: and the whole finished story can be found here: Here are the links to all the others one that were posted on Tumblr:

A quick heads up that me and two of the Visual Development artists  (WoonYung Jung and Perry Maple) on the Guardians movie have been working on some special, short stories that will appear exclusively online. Can't find them in the Art Of book! We were happy that the studio let us play around a little bit longer within the world of Guardians. Each story will have a different visual style. This is the first. I'll update the journal with links to the future ones as they are posted.

When do you think you might be available to do requests?

Impossible to say at this time. Sorry.

Because I really want to find someone to do my comic request that I sent you through my notes for free.

are you still taking requests?

Unfortunately, due to daytime work, I cannot take requests. Sorry.

Hey there, I've been following your work since I was in college, about the time you started up your Water Tribe comic in 2007 (on my old DA)- and I just wanted to say: thank you.

Seeing you go so far with a fun, interesting fanwork- for literal years, has been such a huge inspiration to me. I'm starting up my own fancomic based on Pokemon Legends Arceus and whenever I start feeling a bit silly for putting so much effort into a fanwork- I think of you, and your work. And just how much seeing it means to me- and I keep going.

Thank you, again- for sharing your work with us- it means a lot.
