Murder Doll House


come on in out of the cold, Dear

In 1988, 2 police officers arrive at 1418 F Street in search of a man reported missing by a local Social Worker. Investigation on the home begins to unearth 3 decades of secrets kept hidden just underneath the surface.
Deadly Garden is the final entry in the True Macabre trilogy, and is by far the most ambitious. Both chilling, darkly funny and even heart breaking this story proves that even in the most non-assuming American neighborhood can harbor the darkest threats.
Written and Animated by Teppei Ando with music by Evan Kertman, orginal songs by Postcoitus

SF Zinefest is this weekend! I’ll be tabeling this year with/for RPS Collective so come by and say hi and chat awhile!
I’ll be there both Saturday and Sunday.
Also, Friday 08/28 I’ll be hanging out with my friends Adam Davis & Libros Libres Mobile Library (at their new location) for a pre-Zinefest Kickstart party.
I’ll be showing some of my 9 to 5 cartoons and there’ll be a scavenger hunt and everything.
Oakland Local was nice enough to write it up for us.


What else… Well I just got home after getting lost 10 times in the city trying to find my way to SFSU on my bike. So confusing that city. But was stoked once I got to check out gallery space and hang out more with my curator partner, David De Rozaz (Gallery Manager for SFSU). If you didn’t hear from me or read below, this will be an exhibit about ZINES & DIY culuture presented by SF State University & RPS Collective and will feature myself, Lenae Day, Deth P Sun, Adam Davis & Joakim Dresher as well as much awesome zines we can feature.

One more thing. Shit, no wonder I’ve been leaving the house wearing mismatched shoes. I’ve been returned to work on a brand new video for a very talented old friend. I don’t see any details on the internet yet so I’ll just say it’s for their new album, and it’s going to be sweet.
Looking forward to getting back to 9 to 5 soon, though. I recorded such funny voices with my friends for this next coming episodes. can’t wait!

The Great Starbucks Run


The 2nd episode of 9 to 5 has been added above! I don’t want the rapid release of 9 to 5 shorts to shove out the other films so I’m gonna just creat a single poster for 9 to 5, and have the most recent short linked to it, and the other episodes can be reached through that.
Maybe in long run I’d like to get a 2nd carousel for 9 to 5 shorts only. Each episode is designed to be stand alone, and there’s a movie genre riffing theme I’m going to continue… it’d be fun to get them all lined up.

In other news, I just got started on a new Art Exhibition for SFSU College to open Late SEPT. I’ll be curating the show for RPS-Zines and showing art from my Zines with comrades, Lenae Day, Deth P Sun, Adam Davis & Joakim Drescher.
