Current Projects

I have been busy with a bunch of stuff lately, and tend to forget how many things I am actually undertaking at any given time. So, I figured I would list them out here to help wrap my head around and let you know what I am up to.
Also, because I am bad at regular updates, this is my semi-regular info purge.

- POCKET BOOK V
Pocket Book V is finished. We just completed printing and binding them. Akina hand-stitched every single one.

- ANDRAUS
New band with my brother Austin. Thrash/doom/ambient/psych/electronic/metal
We've started recording. It's the first time I have been satisfied with the sound quality of drums I've recorded myself.

We also printed shirts:

- Helms Alee / Young Widows split
I did the cover art for the forthcoming split from my pals Helms Alee and Young Widows, to be released by Sargent House.

- AXED CROWN
Axed Crown is my solo musical project. I've had a debut LP languishing in near-completion for a couple years now. I finally recorded drums for one song, "Overturn," that's been almost done for a while, and I think it is finally complete. Just need to tweak and add a few bits, and the record will be good to go. It's tentatively titled "Amnesty."

Here is the rough demo for "Overturn"


- HENRY & GLENN FOREVER & EVER
I have a short comic in the upcoming Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever TPB. It's basically Henry as Hellboy, and they fall through the floor of their house into a forgotten practice space. I'll post a preview soon. Also, the book's foreword is written by Rob Halford. ROB HALFORD. of JUDAS PRIEST.
Pre-Order It Here


- CHEAP EATS
I'm also working on Cheap Eats, a short cooking show featuring delicious recipes for the broke and lazy. It's for KCHUNG TV, KCHUNG's entry in the Hammer Museum's Made in LA 2014 Biennial.

- HEAVY DUTY
Oh yeah, I also have a monthly show called Heavy Duty on KCHUNG radio. It focuses on hevay music for lightweights, and airs the fourth Sunday of every month.

- I'm in the middle of writing a short script about a metal band putting on a show at their parents' house. Hopefully I'll finish it this month and have it shot and edited before summer is over.

- I already wrote a feature length script for a post-apocalyptic ghost movie called Mountain Ghost that's influenced by The Road, Princess Mononoke, Red Dawn, and Neon Genesis Evangelion. Intending to but not really working on pre-production (designs, storyboards, etc). Might produce it as a comic first.

- On the far back burner is a short zine/riso book called Black Days. Black metal days of the week. Sunday is a burning church, Monday is black coffee, etc.

- Probably some other stuff I am forgetting/procrastinating on. For some reason I still feel unproductive a lot of the time. Let me know if you need a video, or a drawing, or music. Because I am not busy enough.

I blame the internet.

The Adventures of Akinkin


I drew this as a belated birthday / Valentine's Day present for my wife Akina. She likes Tintin (me, too). I finished it two days ago. I'm busy, okay.
