New CROSSED WIRES page up on http://crossedwires.ianjay.net! That’s our protagonist up there— he’s a sword-wielding dragon who fights robots on the internet. If you’re not on board with this comic by now, I don’t know what more I can possibly do here.
CROSSED WIRES. NEW COMIC FROM IAN JAY, CREATOR OF EPIPHANY AND MEGAHERTZ.
Updates Mondays and Thursdays on http://crossedwires.ianjay.net.
!!!IMPORTANT!!! The flavor of Contact Caffeine soap I did artwork for, Regal Roses, is on sale now! Buy some if you want to smell like a beautiful, very awake garden. ALSO, they just dropped a bunch of other Spring-exclusive scents into their store too, so take a peek at those as well!
Oh, one more thing: DID I MENTION ALL OF THE SOAPS’ LABELS ARE ALSO STURDY PEEL-OFF STICKERS THAT CAN ADORN YOUR COMPUTER OR SOME OTHER FLAT, BORING SURFACE? Because they can!
IF YOU’VE GOT SEVENTY-FIVE MINUTES TO BLOW: You might remember Nero and I hooting and hollering last September about moving across the country! Well, we took a whole bunch of videos that we took on that trip and edited the best bits together into a super huge road trip documentary. Join us as we travel three thousand miles across America, getting into all sorts of shenanigans along the way! Have a watch, and come join us!
JUST A QUICK REMINDER!! If you still haven’t voted yet, now is the perfect time to vote for either ME or my lovely boyfriend Nero O’Reilly in the Ladykiller I <3 Comic Art benefit contest!
We’re really excited to be participating in this event, and while it’s an honor just to be nominated, leaving with some extra money to do COOL ART THINGS with would be really helpful to either of us! Be sure to vote, and if you’ve already voted, tell your friends, family, internet chums, random strangers, whoever about this contest too! Reblogs are very highly encouraged!!
In the famous words of popular soulster Cee-Lo Green, “If you’re not voting to support more cool Ian Jay and Trumpetshark comics, then… Forget You.” Truer words were never said.
We applied separately, but in the end the grant benefits the both of us (Ian won’t have to spend so many hours away from home / I won’t have to spend so long nose-deep in work ), so vote for whoever your little heart desires! Or whoever is ahead at the moment. Doesn’t matter!
ALSO: if you’re going to ECCC, please think about getting a ticket to the LIVE event and coming to hang out/vote AGAIN/get drunk with us. It’ll be fun, I promise.
Seconding this! Doesn’t matter who you vote for, Nero or me, just please go vote. VOTE VOTE VOTE. We’ve both been working our asses off together trying to make the Artist Lifestyle work for the past year, and a grant would give us some much-needed breathing room. I can guarantee getting MORE AWESOME COMICS out to you folks will be easier if one or the other of us wins.
Also COME ON. Of course we’re the coolest cartoonists in Seattle! I mean there are some other great contenders in this thing, but They’re Not Us.
I FEEL THE COSMOS

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to my favorite video game! And to the Hoshinos, my favorite cubic family in video gaming.
ALSO I SHOULD MENTION: Chapter two of my shooty-animal-robot-revenge comic MEGAHERTZ is out! Twenty-four more pages of ACTION in a post-cyber-war America. Read it FOR FREE on http://rruffurronline.com, and keep an eye peeled for the LIMITED DELUXE PRINT RUN coming soon!
An illustration I did recently for the fine folks at Con*Tact Caffeine, purveyors of quality smells. This is a label for one of their upcoming soap flavors that’ll be rose-scented, though I don’t know what they’re going to call it yet. Something suitably punny, most likely. Go buy some of their stuff!
