So much working, reading, thinking, living to do! A lifetime is not long enough.

This is your last week to get the “Professional Explorer” print by featured Guest Artist Natalie Andrewson in the OOSA Print Shop. Go HERE to get it before it’s gone!

If Natalie’s work seems familiar, maybe it’s because she’s done a few comic book incentive covers for BOOM! Studios like Skips #4 and the upcoming Lumberjanes #8. Check out natalie-andrewson​ here on Tumblr to see more of her work.

About the print: Each print is 11x17 on 230 gsm premium smooth fine art paper printed using Ultrachrome inks for the highest quality.

Last week to get the Professional Explorer print!!

If you want to help secure the rights of women all over the world go here.
If you want to help people from north korea go here.
If you want to help stop child labor go here
If you want to help people escape from their current situation go here
If you want to help refugees reunite with their families go here

If you want to permanently help the people who are still living in inhumane conditions all over the globe, that grow up experiencing war, violence and discrimination, be political! Go vote, write articles, educate every single person you meet, never shut your mouth, make people aware of the fact that we are still far away from global equality, freedom and peace.  

Please do not remove this caption, if you repost, link back to this post.

This is important.

History DOES repeat itself, because of complacency and disconnects history classes bring (at least, in the United States this is the case)

Go out and get educated and spread the word to those who don’t have the resources you might have!!!

IT’S AUTUMN. In other news I did a couple pieces for this Jearmin Zine which you can [preorder here.] [Big post here.] Lots of cool artists and writers involved! 54 pages?! Plus extra postcards! Drawings, comics, and writing! Be sure to check it out!

The Reader, in White (1857). Jean-Louis Ernest Meissonier (French, 1815-1891). Oil on canvas.
Standing by a window for light, a gentleman reads, his back turned to a table with a green velvet cover, on which are some books. The light falls on his face; his hair is powdered. Despite reading while standing, he appears to be comfortable and pleased with his choice of reading.

My piece for the Fifth Element artbook, which will be released soon! Check in later with their tumblr for details on how to get your own copy. I will have poster prints of this at SPX next weekend—I’m at tables W80-81 with Sam and our pals Andrea & Jimmy. (I’ll be putting up a comprehensive SPX post in the next few days!)

The Fifth Element is one of my favorite movies ever, it came out when I was in middle school and I even bought the soundtrack for it—Leeloo was my hero. It was actually pretty hard to single out what I wanted to draw for it, but I think one of the strong suites of the movie is its distinctive costume design, so I went with that angle!

Man, vintage posters are great, and when I saw this Delta poster I loved the composition and knew I wanted to do something similar with the FE stewardesses. I was inspired by all the fun type and stylization in David Klein’s iconic TWA posters too. You can see my color sketch as well—I have a fair amount of darker prints, so I wanted this one to be light and airy. Now I just need more excuses to make fun sci-fi posters!
