THIS WEEK, Friday March 29th–Sunday the 31st, I will be at WonderCon in Anaheim!
I’ll be at booth #1704, right near the entrance, with my buddy Sam Logan, who will be happy to draw your pet for you, or anything else.
As for me? I’ll draw you a Roll-a-Sketch!
Here are a few of the ones I drew in Seattle the other weekend (click any image for a closer look)…
X-MEN + DRAGON:
UNICORN + CONSTRUCTION + FRANKENSTEIN + CYCLOPS:
LION + KNIGHT + YODA + SITH LORD:
BAT + TERMINATOR + YODA + PEANUTS:
And of course, RACCOON + CONVICT + SUPERMAN + GRADUATE:
If you’ll be at WonderCon, I’ll make one for you, too! What a deal!!
I’ll be offering Roll-a-Sketches online, too, later this year — probably in May or June. Probably!

Once again, I am returning to the Emerald City for its eponymous comic convention!
Once again, I will be found on the 4th floor skybridge between the convention center proper and the building across the street.
As the show has grown more media- and pop-culture focused, most of the indie artists have migrated up to the 6th floor Artist Alley. But personally, I like the natural light (and the elbow room) on the 4th floor!
Also, once again I will be hosting The Lost in Wikipedia Game Show! on Sunday, March 17.
My intrepid competitors this year will be:
At the booth this year, I’ll have Wondermark enamel pins (which debuted at Gen Con last summer, so they’re new since last ECCC), plus my usual complement of nonsense.
Still working on the new hardcover collection…It won’t make it to this con, sorry to say. But I will have paperback copies of The Elephant of Surprise!
Hope to see you (OR FEEL YOUR IMMATERIAL ESSENCE) at the show!

Today’s comic “The Master, and his Piece” was made using images from the Rawpixel Design Resource Library!
Specifically, the main two figures are from the curated Vintage Valentine’s collection:
There are a lot of stock image libraries out there, but Rawpixel is the first commercial one I’ve seen that actually acknowledges when certain images are in the public domain and makes them available for free.
Rawpixel’s collection is associated with The Public Domain Review, which is a great site with essays about topics related to vintage works of art and literature.
The P.D.R. essay “Frankenstein, the Baroness, and the Climate Refugees of 1816″ by Gillen D’Arcy Wood completely changed my understanding of that very well-known book.
I recommend that site highly for lots of thought-provoking reading! And Rawpixel for pictures seems pretty cool so far too!
OBLIGATORY REMINDER: Thank you so much to all the new patrons on the Wondermark Patreon page! I just posted a new 2 Minutes to Wondermark video for patrons.
This Friday, February 15, is the last day of our Special Offer, in which all patrons at the $5 tier or higher will get three different downloadable Wondermark desk calendars! As well as my undying gratitude, OF COURSE.
