Happy summer time, IF blog readers! It has been a little quiet around here lately. I guess we’ve all decided to be on the internet a little less and enjoying the summer sunshine a little more Which is a great thing.
Anyhow, here are a few of my flickr morsels for you in the meantime…
New paintings by Malota
It’s like I’m there by Justin Degarmo

my pals at poketo are having a big spring cleaning. AND THAT MEANS BIG SAVINGS FOR YOU! (yes, i’m a car salesman too.) swing by their studio this saturday, may 10th, between 10 am and 5 pm to find some great deals on some great “art for your everyday.” read all the details here.
As though you needed another website telling you what to draw, Project Rooftop invites artists to re-imagine their favorite superheroes. The Iron Man redesign above was submitted by my friend, Daniel Krall, for the Project’s Iron Man: Invincible Upgrade contest.
holy cow! check out the amazing artists who agreed to judge the latest portrait party contest! i’m geeking out!
The Portrait Party is one year old today! To celebrate, everyone gets a birthday card and a few of you get presents!
P.s., The birthday illustration above was drawn by Christine Castro.
I draw comics for myself now and then. I print them and fold them into books because it’s fun. I give them to friends and, on very rare occasions, my homemade comics find their way into galleries, comic shops, and bookstores. When that happens, I wonder (sort of desparately) “Who reads mini-comics?” Well, I just found out: Shawn Hoke of Indy, Indiana.
Shawn loves mini-comics. His blog, Size Matters, is devoted to the subject. He reports on comics events like SPX and he reviews mini-comics with gentle scrutiny. This is a man who clearly enjoys the simplest things in life. So, if you want to make his day, pack up your most personal, most oddly drawn stories and send them to Shawn asap.
He’ll enjoy them more than your grandparents will.
There are only ten days left to share your SELF-portraits at The Portrait Party. I’ve already posted some great ones by Michael Wertz, Danny Gregory, Norman Rockwell, and many more. (But this ugly mug above is mine.)
If you’re anxious to share your portrait SWAPS on the other hand, you only have ten more days to wait.
My friend, Miguel, collects drawings of The Bride (Uma Thurman’s character in Kill Bill). I added a page to the series a few years ago and I feel vaguely competitive now whenever he gets excited about a new piece. This weekend, he showed me this contribution by Jim Rugg. I was blown away. I promptly asked for another shot at Miguel’s Bride sketchbook AND I looked Jim up as soon as I got home. His blog is dynamite. No wonder I was blown away! (Hyuk hyuk!)
