Cover illustration for the FINDING YOUR POWER ANIMAL zine. One day left before it’s let loose on the general public! Things are getting exciting!
ALSO, ARTISTS! To those of you who haven’t mailed me your piece yet and haven’t said anything at all to me about your progress, I don’t mean to pressure you, but I kind of need it by now.

NEW COMMERCIAL FOR FINDING YOUR POWER ANIMAL DROPS NOW. Also, hey, if you’re working on a piece of art and you haven’t sent it in to me yet, please either do so post-haste (or drop me a line or an ask if you can’t finish in time). 

All the art I’ve gotten so far has been INCREDIBLY AWESOME. Girdle your psychic loins for June 12th, because this release will be an e-event you won’t want to miss!

POWER ANIMAL PROJECT UPDATE! We’ve got two weeks until the project deadline (June 4th). To all the people who have sent me finished submissions or works in progress so far, thank you! If you’ve finished your piece but don’t know where to send it, mail it to me here. If you haven’t finished your piece and you don’t think you’re going to make it (it’s cool, it’s a busy time for a lot of artists right now!), drop me a note or an e-mail and I’ll find someone else to fill in for you. 
ALSO: A friend of mine had an awesome idea for how artists participating in this zine can make money off of it: While the publically available digital version of the zine will be web-resolution, I could send print-resolution copies to the participating artists. That way, if you guys want to print and sell copies at any conventions you go to, you can keep whatever you make. Artists, would this work? Feedback is appreciated.
This zine is really coming together! I’ve got a video for it that should be on the way real soon— expect it sometime next week-ish, along with a couple other “announcement” videos and about fifty million “me and Adri goofing off in Savannah/Orlando” videos. Again, to everyone participating, thanks for taking this project from “something goofy” to “something goofy that looks really, really cool”. Keep your third eyes peeled for more updates!

HEY COOL ARTIST PEOPLE, LISTEN UP! I need your help.
I’m planning on printing something a little experimental for this year’s batch of conventions— a goofy mis-informational zine on power animals, loosely rooted in this Tumblr post I made a while back and inspired by my friend Mad, who used to send me weird books on the subject. Each animal included in the book will have a page-length article written on it, as well as an accompanying illustration. Here’s the kicker, though: I want to see if I can get each animal illustrated by a different cool artist. THAT’S WHERE I NEED YOUR HELP!
Here are the basic parameters of the project:
I need one image that involves the power animal of your choice. How you choose to interpret this animal is entirely up to you. If it helps, think of something that would be printed, giant-size, on the front of a tie-dye t-shirt. Or it can be something totally different! Just have fun with it!
Nothing too crazy big or complex. These will be printed at minicomic size, and will be shrunk down to fit a 5.5” x 8.5” page.
Black and white/grayscale art only, please.
The deadline for art is June 2nd, which gives you a solid month from today.
IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE: Note me or e-mail me (or if you know me on AIM or Skype, just TELL me) your top three choices for which animal you’d like to draw for. Here are your choices:
Wolf (Light)
Wolf (Dark)
Fox
Cat - RESERVED
Raccoon
Eagle
Possum - RESERVED
Horse
Turtle
Deer - RESERVED
Ant
Squirrel
Panther - RESERVED
Snake - RESERVED
Raven
Bear
Mouse
Bat - RESERVED
Armadillo
Dolphin
Owl
Coyote
Rabbit
Giraffe
Mothman - RESERVED
Reservations are first-come first-serve, so if you see an animal you REALLY want to draw for, be sure to speak up! 
All participants will receive a copy of the finished zine and a heightened sense of spiritual unity with the cosmos. With your help, we can turn this dumb parody book into a really good-looking dumb parody book!
