I'll Be Fine Without Voice Chat by jmatchead
I'll Be Fine Without Voice Chat
I've been pretty psyched about Splatoon since the minute it was revealed, so it's a little surprising I haven't drawn anything related. I haven't really been doing much fan art type stuff lately, but I'm trying to do a tiny bit more. This an't much, but I think it conveys my excitement.

Nova Phase Issue 3 Cover by jmatchead
Nova Phase Issue 3 Cover
Don't think I ever posted this before, but here's the cover illustration for the the third issue of Nova Phase. Pixelated sacrificial alien princess goodness.

Nova Phase is a comic I illustrated designed to look like an NES game cutscene, complete with super limited color palette and low resolution pixel art. It was reviewed very positively when it launched, and has not made me (or the creator) any money! Check it out!

You can find the book here: www.comixology.com/Nova-Phase-…

Only 99 cents!

NEW Heckbringers PG 05 by jmatchead
NEW Heckbringers PG 05
So I've been doing this comic for a month or so, thought I'd post a page here, since my posts on DA have become pretty infrequent lately.

This is a reboot of sorts of a comic I started several years ago, but now in full color! And weekly! Kind of. Mostly. It's still pretty early on, but I thought I'd share.

As usual, check out more stuff at my blog!

Cowabunga-No-Jutsu! by jmatchead
Cowabunga-No-Jutsu!
Very recently discovered two things. First of all, I still love the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In fact, I might love them even more now that I can appreciate the grit of the classic comics and sheer insanity of the turtle phenomena that followed. Secondly, I appear to have a deeply ingrained understanding of how to draw these guys, surely gained from a childhood spent CONSTANTLY exposed to them. Seriously, This was the first time I had drawn the turtles in a very long time, and it came weirdly naturally. I've been drawing them a great deal since, with surprisingly good results! Maybe I'll post some of the later pieces at some point.

A few notes. This isn't based on any one incarnation of the characters, and there are elements of various versions present. While the designs themselves are like a mix of the cartoon and film versions, their coloration seems to be based on the new Nickelodeon cartoon. This wasn't intentional or anything, but worth noting.

This was originally done to promote a review I wrote of some TMNT puzzle erasers a while back. Read it here:

Haven't posted anything here in QUITE a while. Literally two days or so after my last post, I got a full time job doing designs for a toy company, where I currently work with pretty major clients, including comic giants and like every major sporting league, so I've been pretty focused on doing my best on that front. It was a major career change for me, and was a lot to get used to , but now I'm finally used to it and have been trying to start building my private work back up again. I'm back to posting on my blog, which I have often linked here, but I thought I would drop by and update anybody still keeping an eye on this page, as I still get a surprising amount of traffic here.

First off, although I'm gonna try to get some stuff up here now and then, the bulk of my work is gonna show up on my blog first. I'm posting pretty regularly lately, including comics, posters, and random art, so if you like my work (which I hope you do!), I encourage you to check out DokiDoki Arcade! I post all sorts of other stuff too, including articles and discussions on games, toys, and cartoons, and am always trying to expand with new kinds of content.

Secondly, the comic series that I have been illustrating for over a year has come a long way since I first posted about it here. Nova Phase, written by my buddy Matt Ritter and published by Slave Labor Graphics, is 4 issues deep into a 6 issue run, and has had two print volumes released! The comics are available digitally through Comixology, and the paperback volumes can be found on Amazon. Both are extremely inexpensive for what you are getting (the paperbacks are full color and over 60 pages for less than ten dollars!), and have gotten very positive reviews from some fairly credible sources! I swear!

I think that's pretty much it!
