More great work on Scott’s tumblr.

Koyama Press is putting out issue 3 of Ryan Cecil Smith’s S.F. later this year.

Elliot set out to create characters that would fit into an imaginary Ghibli movie. I’d say he nailed it.

I’m going to take the opportunity to toot my horn, and spread the news about my new book from Nobrow. So: hey, check out my new book from Nobrow! It’s called Destination X. It has rocketships and cryo-chambers and aliens and you should buy a copy or two!

It debuts at TCAF in May, and will hit stores in June, but if you’re impatient you can order it directly from Nobrow this very instant.

Beautiful dystopic things for your Friday.

According to the description: This film was made over the last two years in our evenings, weekends and days off. We had no budget but a lot of help from our very talented and generous friends.”

See? Make your own way! It’s the best way, if you can swing it.

(Also, the vertical format looked great on my iPhone, and I assume it would look good on tablets and other vertical things.)
