A new shirt for sale! I created this design quite a while ago and I always felt like it turned out pretty well so I'm glad it's finally been made available. I also still think it would make a pretty sweet real life happy meal. Well, I guess it's not too kid friendly, so maybe one of those mighty kids meals would make more sense, whatever those are.
Buy the shirt here!

The good people at Gallery 1988 mailed me a copy of this issue of Modo De Vida, which featured my Mario's Closet illustration.
As you can imagine I'm not overly familiar with publications based in Puerto Rico, so I'll quote this from the magazine's Facebook page:
"Modo de Vida is about the good life, good taste and the seeking of a higher standard of Living. Exceptional Homes, featured throughout our pages. Fine dining, Travel, Fashion, Jewelry, Automobiles and the world of art."
Hear that? Buying my art means a higher standard of living! The magazine seems to be written in Portuguese which I'm having trouble translating via translation websites, but I can tell that they gave me credit and spelled my name correctly, which is more than I can say for my US based water company that sends my bill to "Glen Brogen."

A few weeks ago I received some copies of the Exploring Mars coloring book, which was commissioned by NASA and the Mars Society to get kids excited about some day visiting the red planet. Isn't that an amazing cover? As I mentioned some time ago, I was able to contribute to this book via the Autumn Society.
Here's my coloring page!
And one of the books was signed by Dr. Robert Zurbin, the aerospace engineer who's at the forefront of the effort to make a manned mission to Mars a reality.
Out of all the amazing projects I've been able to participate in this year this one really stands out. I couldn't be happier or prouder to have been a part of this.

It occurs to me that this would be pretty funny to post with no explanation or context, but I guess I'll tell you anyway! It's my latest piece for Front Magazine, this one for an article about putting together the perfect stereotypical gang.
We have Peter Venkman as the ladies man, Donatello as the brains, Chewbacca as the muscle, Screech as the wild card, Dobby as the mascot, and the A-Team van as the vehicle.
I really like Chewbacca in the wrestling getup. Sadly I can't claim credit for that as it was in the commission description, though it was my idea to give Screech a child's toy guitar. I'm not too fond of Dobby or anything Harry Potter related, but neither are the people at Front as they told me to make him look "hateable," haha!
