Back in the studio
Hey there true believers. Had a few really fun weeks recently. We had a Zine release party at Rock Paper Scissors, where I premiered my New Zine, MURDER DOLLHOUSE #4- SHORT CUTS, a book featuring shorts in a comic strip format. Each Zine comes with a board game cover w/ dice and game pieces.
Then, the following Friday we were lucky enough to have a table at Oakland Museum of California’s ZINE SALON event. On top of that I got to collaborate on designing screen print pamphlet give-a-way at the event. My favorite part was drawing a Zinefest scene. I produced a 11X17 print of the Zine Fest which has been a popular item so far. Both the new zine and print are now available in the gift shop.
Now, I’m back in the studio in full production of the next big animation project. This one will switch things up quite a bit to a series of shorts based on the world of my most popular zine, HOW TO SURVIVE WORKING 9 to 5.This will be an ongoing series that I hope I can get rolling on a pretty regular basis. Like the zine, each episode will standalone centered on a topic but there will be an continuous story which connects each “season”. Some topics from the Zine will be re-explored but told quite differently in this new format.
The new show will feature music by Richard Houghton (BLOOMY PETAL) and feature actors from the True Macabre Trilogy (Kelli Thompson, Derek Wood, Hallie Fryd, Marci Washington Erik Thompson…) as well as several fresh voices. I can promise that it’s going to be a really funny series and hopefully mundanely grand in scope. Stay tuned!
Zine Release/ OAKLAND MUSEUM OF CA
Hi, recently got back from Japan and feeling pretty stoked. I got a lot of ideas for things to work on. and have been getting new scripts ready for animation and finishing up new zines. And now we have…
2 super events for Murder Dollhouse this month.
May 23rd at RPS, I’ll be premiering new zine MURDER DOLLHOUSE #4 Short Cuts a Rock Paper Scissors Collective, for Zine Release Party. Browse zine while listening to live music from DEVON MCCLIVE, BLOOMY PETAL & OOB. Psst. shhh, each band has member who has contributed music or acting to a Murder Dollhouse Cartoon.
It’s going to be a blast and it’s all freeeeee

So hopefully I’ll see you at both! Can’t waaaaaiiiit.
Lastly, though it didn’t win I’m very proud of the entry film I made for They Might Be Giants music video contest. I posted it above. I took the rare opportunity to make a love note to their song writing career. Please check it out!
