Murder Dollhouse vol.1
I am very proud of this comic. I am a big fan of old pulp comics and they served as inspiration for starting my animation work. With this zine/comic I was able to pay tribute an earlier era in all their glory, complete with fake ads and all. This book contains 2 stories, primary between them is ‘The man who lived in their attic’, the true story of a strange fellow who managed to do as the title suggests for 15 years unbeknownst by the home owner. Also featured is a full color story, ‘She made me feel 4 inches tall’, which serves as more a straight tribute to pulp horror.
Very fun read for everybody
This is a fun anthology of horror created in a children’s book format. Both funny and scary it is 44 Pages (27 illustrated) in a nice 7 X 8.5 size.
Illustrated and written by Teppei Ando featuring a special story written by young Issac Arana at age 5.
Black and White with a color cover. Great for ALL AGES!
My best seller, How to Survive 9 to 5 is a darkly comic companion book to those who work at a full time at a monotonous soul sucking job, or a warning to those that don’t. Written and illustrated to put YOU the reader into the stories and topics explored, including THE BREAK ROOM WARS, PERFORMANCE EVALUATION, WATER COOLER JUG and many more! 32 pages in glorious black and white with full color cover. Only $3 dollars!
With the second volume of Murder Dollhouse books I went in a completly new direction, recalling something that terridied me when I was a young kid. I remember going to a HELL museum in Japan and seeing life sized depictions of Hell, each room with it’s own theme.
As an adult I was researching different culture’s ideas of the after life and the one that facinated me the most was the DIYU Hell, in which there are 18 different levels, each with it’s own set of sins and punishment.
This book serves as a guide to each of these 18 levels, a description of the sin and the punishment that will follow. Each level is drawn in detail with a spread-illustration totaling 36 pages of art. Due to the subject matter, I was able to convey for fantastical elements than in my other books and dip into my Asian roots more than I have before.
Romantic pursuit of the every man and woman. This zine is small but packs a punch. Based on real Missed Connection ads, each illustration is a gauche painting that included the original message left by strangers for strangers like poetry, hopeful for something more.
Show your how much you care with these Love-Note cards!
Each set comes with 4 lovely cards, each featuring classy Teppei Ando paintings.
Perfect for a gift for your loved ones or yourself!
Murder Dollhouse #4 comes in a fresh new format and changes things up in content as well. This book is 36 pages and features short stories and silhouettes presented completely in comic strip format. It’s my most personal zine yet with several true stories as well as a Japanese Ghost Story, a full color reimagining of a much overlooked 80s hero and more!
Each zine comes with a playable game-board cover with miniature dice and game pieces! Wowzers!
The very first Zine Comic we self published !
The Marty Chronicles is an epic graphic novel take on modern romance. It follows the true encounters between co author Liz Dunning and a socially awkward but not entirely unremarkable Marty. They meet with one thing in common, volley ball, and that may be as far as they will ever go. But Marty is willing to keep trying. And Liz just can’t seem to say no, as she continuously engages with awkwardness denying what is really keeping their acquaintance.
Written by Liz Dunning and Teppei Ando, drawn by Teppei .
Over 80 pages of hand drawn artwork and fleshed out dialogue, the back stage world of after college volley ball never before (to our knowledge) graced the pages of the comic world.
Directly based on real experiences comes one of the comics dearest to my heart. When I was desperate for affordable housing, I found myself living with a notorious con artist (It’s true, I saw an ABC NEWS sting operation segment on him).
It wasn’t long before 2 additional housemates were thrown onto the list of tenants in that shack of a apartment. 2 Locksmith bros to be more precise. This book contains 3 adventures of these loveable but super obnoxious Israeli knuckleheads.
38 pages of comic book antics with special bonus artwork from IMAGE COMICS/ONI PRESS comicbook artist, Justin Greenwood!
2 color on light gray, this print captures the Zine Fest scene which is always fun to table at and/or attend. Whether slave nights prepping for these events or you scrounge for your favorite handmade goodies, you’ll find a little bit of yourself in this print. Each print is signed and mailed by tube.

Meanwhile on this end I have been super busy animating segments for The Gremlin Hour, an anthology cult/punk animation/shortfilm anthology show. It’s gonna be rad… Don’t want to rush it…. Also released a new cassette with NIGHT AUDITOR, whom I recently animated that video, HIGHER for!. If you want to keep up to date w me I suggest following my personal or @TheGremlinQUarterly feeds on Instagram.
The music video for NIGHT-AUDITOR’s Higher is here! and above!
I love Indie-rock as probably anyone who’s had the privileged to get one of my mix-Cds (or even a Mix Recordddd, huhhhh Angel, huhhhh???)or disprivledged to live in the room next door to my studio (Hey, I asked that guy constantly if he wanted me to turn it down and he kept saying “no, it helps me to go to sleep” so if you heard otherwise, that’s the facts. I also would switch the music to evening allnighter jams when he got home)
I have never done a music-video that was Indie-Funk Rock though.The organic blends of guitar, horn, keys really gave me new life when choosing colors with this one, and I had so much fun with the Brazilian setting.
When I asked Night-Auditor if he had any favorite streets in Brazil I could draw he didn’t even skip a beat naming off like 5 of them. That’s why i had so much fun with this project. This dude gives a shit about what he’s doing, he’s passionate and sincere and I’m sure if he keeps hustling he will find a healthy audience.
