One more thing about the Gentleman’s Monocles project I mentioned the other day!
Here is a behind the scenes/outtakes video:
If you want your own monocle(s), there are a few days left in the Kickstarter!
I thought it ended today but that’s because I…didn’t do math right? It actually ends Wednesday morning. I have no stake in this project, I’m just really proud of the video and think it’s a neat thing!
Recently I was asked by fellow cartoonist Zach Weinersmith to help on a project!
He has created the Gentleman’s Single-Use Un-Lubricated Monocle:
I did the package design (the wrapper, above, and the box, below):
And I also directed the Kickstarter promo video!
We made a silent film about a gentleman’s pressing need for monocular protection, with the assistance of 5 Second Films’ Ben Gigli, SMBC Theater’s James Ashby, and my own The Audience team member Rachel Parker. I’m super happy with it!
You can get your own monocles on Kickstarter now. But hurry: the campaign ends on
Here are some Roll-a-Sketch drawings I did the other weekend in Seattle! Roll-a-Sketches, of course, are drawings whose subjects are randomly chosen by the throwing of dice — or, as the ancient Romans used to call them, “Bones-a-Etches.”
Thanks to those of you who came and said hello at the booth, either to grab a book, or a sketch, or maybe pick up your Wondermark jigsaw puzzle! It was nice to see you all.

My current convention schedule for the rest of this year, so far, is:
MAY 23-24 : Vancouver Comic Arts Festival : Looking forward to a triumphant return to BC
JULY 8-12 : San Diego Comic-Con or whatever
JULY 30-AUG 2 : Gen Con Indy : I might try to host a playtest of a game this time around!
That’s it for the spring and summer. Maybe one or two more in the fall. Hope to see you at one of them!!
