How I Spent My Day

Did you know that I like internet memes?  I do.
Did you know that I like art history and painting?  I do.

I decided to paint a mashup of the two.  Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you

"Nyan Gogh"

I hope this piece will brighten the internet for many.

Dino Hunt! - With MNZero

I got together with this group called MNZero —which is something of a minnesota-based rendition of the immersive, real-life art-game called SFZero— to play a game dreamed up by my friend Kate Saturday called "Dino Hunt". 

In this game,
"Tribes of prehistoric vegetarians hunt dinosaur puppets with wiffleball spears, while trying to avoid the predations of ptreacherous pterodactyls. With each meatless kill, they claim a new dish for their vegetarian picnic."
It was a lot of fun.

Each dinosaur had a number of hit points, which represented the number of times it could be hit by the wiffleballs tossed at it by the tribe of vicious vegans.  When the dinosaur is killed, it dies dramatically and offers up its bloody, yet still somehow humane, bounty.

Minneapolis Cartoonist Conspiracy - July 7

I attended a comics jam session with the International Cartoonist Conspiracy in Minneapolis.
This comic is dedicated one of our members, Ted, who is leaving for Omaha.  This guy is a big fan of My Little Pony (aren't we all?) and a great person.  We all collaborated here, but I drew a bunch of these panels.  So what are you waiting for?  Click the link and download the 20 page comics jam!

Perpich Horror Movie (Spring-Summer 2009)

Well it took me 2 years to get around to it but I FINALLY put Secret Places: A School Divided up on the internet for all to see!

Created Spring-Summer 2009

In my senior year of high school at the Perpich Center for Arts education I applied for and was awarded a $100 grant to create a horror movie set at the Arts High School.
