A few months ago, David Huyck asked me if I would design a print for the first edition (Volume 2) of his ongoing Cloudy Collection project. The latest edition went on sale moments ago (Noon ET, 9am PT), and includes a set of 4" x 6" letterpress prints by 7 AMAZING artists: David Huyck, Dustin Harbin, Scott MacDonald, Laura Park, Claire Robertson, Dave Taylor, and myself. Read all about them on our bios over --> here.
A portion of the sales will go to The Nature Conservancy.
You can also subscribe to receive all 4 editions in Volume 2 (to be released this year), and receive a cool t-shirt designed by David Huyck and Chris “Elio” Eliopoulos.
Each edition is a limited run of 100 print sets. Here's an example of the first edition from a year ago which sold out pretty quickly. We all work in the same color palette (light blue and charcoal), with a theme—this one being "Who are the people in your neighborhood?"
I had a blast working on this drawing. These guys are my friends! I inked it with a brush pen on paper, and prepared the color plates in Photoshop. You know, it's odd that the colors ended up being so close to the blue/gray/white palette of my Jinx the Monkey website. It makes the "neighborhood" that more familiar to me.
Here's a photo of the actual print:
Congratulations to everyone involved–I can't wait to receive my copy of the edition. Remember, there are only 100 sets! Maybe one of them has your name on it.
I spent the better part of the weekend penciling my latest comic for Heeby Jeeby Comix. I have all 4 pages pretty much ready to ink—here's the first as a bit of a teaser.
I've been bad about keeping up with the rest of the Heeby Jeeby crew (2 months since my last comic!) So check out what Dan, David, and Chris have contributed if you haven't visited in awhile. With any luck, look for my new comic this week.
My friend Wes Dzioba commissioned me to draw up some cute food illustrations for his newborn son's bedroom (congrats on baby boy, Wes!) I know what you're thinking—what's gotten into this Flynn guy? Believe it or not, I don't have to draw gross things all the time. I enjoy drawing cute characters as well.
Wes and I worked out the scenarios together—the hotdog/corn combo was mine; sushi/wasabi was his clever idea.
They're cute enough to eat, aren't they? ;)
By the way, you should remember Wes for his amazing job coloring the SpongeBob comics I worked on for Nick Mag.
