More Adventure Time covers! Remember those connecting covers for issues #1-6 I did a while back? WELL GUESS WHAT THEY WANTED 6 MORE. I remember drawing these in a blurry haze sometime last fall while on Gravity Falls. T’was a sleepy time. But I’m really happy with the end product and Kassandra knocked it outta the park with the colors. Incredible.

I think these connecting cover issues went on sale in comic shops everywhere yesterday.

I’ll be putting these originals on Ebay in the near future. I’ll post a link here when I do.

Anonymous asked: Hey. I'm an animation student in my second year, but lately I've been out of touch with myself and my art. I worry about what I will do when I am out of school, as prime time for internships is fast approaching. I worry that I am not skilled enough, that there are other more worthy artists out there besides me. I dont really want to be a star for anything, I just love animation and want to be apart of it. If anything, a word of support would make me so happy, or how you got started possibly?

When I was a second year, I remember one of my teachers (Steve Stanchfield) telling me that “there are good artists who are working, good artists who are not working, bad artists who are working, and bad artists who aren’t working.” Ain’t that the truth!

I’m sure your work needs to improve. And so does mine. It’d be silly to think otherwise. And yes, there will always be better artists out there. But there’s always room for “one more good one.” Plus, remember, you’re a sophomore, cut yourself some slack! Also, if it makes you feel any better, I was never able to get an internship.

So maybe you aren’t ready to work at a “big studio” right now. But if you’re goal is to be an artist, you’ll find a way to be a working artist. I worked at a small t-shirt printers as an illustrator and designer for a couple of years, drew caricatures at local fairs for a long time, worked on preschool video games, and even drew a nascar coloring book before getting any type of animation work (and if things ever go south, you’ll see me BACK at the local fairs). But I approach the work I do today with the same attitude as those previous jobs. I look for opportunities to enjoy myself and learn from the challenges of that particular job.

You can only do your best. Keep striving to get better but don’t forget to relax every now and again. You can’t do it all at once.

And if you’re still feeling stressed, do what I do and read "Desiderata."
