Oh so you have Cartoon Modern! Great book, used it to write a paper on UPA last semester. Yea though, I just figured I'd ask about UPA since I know you've got a really strong stylistic approach and have a background in animation. I've yet to see Wall-E actually (I'm a bad animation student hehe), but I'm gonna try my hardest to get out to it!
Great pieces in these last couple of posts, interesting range of emotions as well hehe. The cover art is amazing, love the expressions and poses on all 3 characters. Really playful, seems like a great way to introduce your work hehe. I must say that I looove the look of the pugcrab; keeping the line work there in a subtle way as you have and still utilizing the texture has a really nice visual effect. You've also gotten quite adept as capturing the funny look pugs seem to keep hehe.
Is this last one all digital? The more I look at it the more certain elements look like real paper to me. Great attention to detail with the shadows and texture, as well as the idea of depth from layering. Honestly, my favorite part of the piece is the tablet hehe. Not sure why, but the way you made it really sticks out to me. If I can offer a crit, for some reason the large arrow arms of the clock are keeping me up in the triangle created by the clock, pig, and calendar. It's nice in a way, as it helps you from getting trapped in the face of the character, but seeing that area first (probably because I was scrolling down when I initially saw it) kinda stuck me up there. Probably just me in the end though Great work as always!

well I saw the DFTO piece, and I laughed and said "OH MY GOD" out loud...
good reaction I think
Oh, monkey piece - make the car red, get rid of the dog, I thought the suitcase was a falling building in the background, so maybe make the surrounding sky darker...hope that helps. I don't know if these will work but that's what I would try if it were mine...

Book preordered! Cephalopods and boobs, two things I love dearly.
You've pumped out a ton of fantastic work lately. My family went on a lot of road trips when I was a kid too, so the car trip one really brings back a lot of memories. The latest self portrait is great too. The broken heart mended with tape is a great bittersweet detail.
I'm such a Steph fanboy.

I really love "Don't Flash the Octopus."
Just finished reading through it right now. I got all choked up when I came across this one, with the broken piggy bank and scotch tape holding your heart together; and then almost lost it when I came to the one with you eating the toast and jam. Its so cute and sad at the same time...
I hope things are feeling a little better now.
The mermaids totally made me swoon though, and the sexy Centaurs too. I think the printed colors on the Gorilla in the rain also turned out really well; and the crab with the doggy biscuit is easily the most adorable thing I've seen all year. Very impressed, just wanted to tell you.
If you're not familiar with I Ching, which I wasn't until I met someone special, the lines won't make sense but it's the hexagram for "Nourishment". It has a lot of meaning to me now and will as time passes.
Have fun this weekend and don't forget to go to the beach while you're down here.

Awesome stuff steph, the paper cut out style is more convincing than ever it gives them a nice tactile feel. Hope all's well.
