Hadpanagus Halloween minicomics.

untitled (2)

Way back in 2011, AZ created Hadpanagus, a bizarre mythical creature who steals people’s butts and uses them for food and clothing. He loves butts so much, he links them together to make a tail of trophy butts, which he proudly wears alongside his actual tail. AZ’s original description was so funny, it led other artists to draw their own versions of the creature. Now our trip round the bend culminates in Hadpanagus’s inclusion in this year’s bundle of assorted Cartozia Halloween mini-comics. The Hadpanagus book features my illustrations with verses written by Isaac Cates and Mike Wenthe. If you want Halloween minis to pass out to trick-or-treaters, you can order them online at the Cartozia storefront.

And as long as you’re clicking links, open a tab for our current Kickstarter campaign to reprint issue 1 with bonus content! A pledge of only $8 gets you a copy of the new, improved issue 1. Higher tier rewards include 10 issue bundles, original art, and more!

Kroyl

kroyl

The Kroyl is a funny sea serpent that’s soooo long it gets tangled up and occasionally needs to be saved from itself. I like to imagine that it gets really excited and swims around spastically, like a puppy-dragon, until it is too knotted to move anymore. It was originally created by Isaac Cates during the early world-building phase of Cartozia Tales, and has since been drawn by a number of amazing artists, as it has appeared in several issues. I won’t be including it in any of my stories, but couldn’t resist blogging my own version.

This is Your Space Taxi Driver

Digital sci-fi drawing done in Manga Studio, July 2014. Thought it’d be funny to draw a cockpit with a dashboard like an old car.

Greedo

Watercolor of Greedo, the alien who is killed by Han Solo in the cantina in Star Wars: a New Hope. I didn’t use any pencil or ink to draw this–I started it and finished it with watercolors.

Alastair the Alliterative Anthropomorphic Animal desperately wants to star in a kiddie book, but nobody takes him seriously. This was printed in an anthology called “Imaginary Friends” in 2011.
