What are you doing for the next four months? Hopefully you'll be spending every day at the Cartoon Art Museum, witnessing the new Small Press Spotlight featuring the work of Jon Adams. You can see artwork in real life, instead of on a computer screen. And if you break the glass, you can touch the artwork. It opens April 12th. See you there!

If you enjoy listening to human voice, man are you going to enjoy this. It's a recording of nothing but human voices. In particular the voices belong to the hosts of Hideous Energy as they interview Ultimate Spider-Man artist Dave Marquez and other artist/designer Jon Adams about our The Joyners in 3D book. It's like an hour of people just talking.

Now in stores and in the hands of strangers leaving said stores is The Joyners in 3D, a big hardcover book we designed and lettered along with R.J. Ryan, Dave Marquez, and Tara Rhymes. As the name implies, it has one more dimension than a boring, old two-dimensional comic. A special pair of glasses that make you look unapproachable reveals a depth to the story otherwise unatainable. Here's a video.

Each year we create a holiday-themed activity page for the San Francisco Chronicle. This past holiday season it included a crowd of literally hundreds of Santas, but hidden amongst them were several deformed impostors. Local children were compelled to search for the impostors and deny them the love they craved. Can you spot the fake?
