On Monday, March 24, Teefury will be running a "Rocket & Groot" tee - a Guardians of the Galaxy/Calvin & Hobbes parody. The shirt is a collaboration by HULK superfan Steve Yarish and Philly Cartoonist Jeffro Kilpatrick.
Steve is best known for his incredible fandom of the Hulk. He is such a big fan, that Marvel writers and artists named a recurring character after him in the comics. Steve also has a bar from one of the Hulk movies named after him. You can get some background on Steve Yarish in this episode of Fanatical:
Jeffro is a Philly cartoonist and art teacher. Steve approached Jeffro with the idea for Teefury's March Collaboration Challenge. Being a huge fan of Hulk, comics, and Calvin and Hobbes, Jeffro whipped up the design in a few short days.
Starting at Midnight EST, Monday, March 24, go to www.teefury.comto get the shirt for just $11. But after that day, it's gone, gone, gone!

Got to work on a great project last week. I was asked by Sidewalk Atlas, a local band here in Philly, to design a new t-shirt for them. They asked me if I was interested in doing a fun, post-apocalyptic theme for the image. I said sure, twist my arm!
The design is three colors printed on a purple t-shirt. It may look like the robots are destroying the city for no reason but I prefer to think that they are looking for a lost kitten.
The band is taking orders for the shirt here. You can also check out their new album which is definitely worth a listen (and a purchase) here. For more info visit sidewalkatlas.com

This is my latest illustration for the upcoming Fangamer X Attract mode event. The theme was "x", which could be interpreted however we wanted. I imagined a sort of gender segregated summer camp for Nintendo characters. Roasting mushrooms over the fire, telling spooky stories, watching the bird life.
Prints of the work will be available in person and online after the opening night. You can find the full information for the event through here.
La Luz Gallery is having a show pairing up with LA beer week. LINK The theme doesn't have to be beer but most everything I do involves booze so it's my kinda show. This is my piece for the show, Lime Ricky, he's a Gluglin. Little creatures that love getting tanked and stirring up trouble.
