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.

Musician Jim Guthrie asked a number of animators and filmmakers to create interpretive music videos for his soundtrack to Indie Game: The Movie. Here’s mine, based on my Machine Gum webcomic.

All the videos can be seen at Proof of Something: The IGTM Video Project. They run the gamut from stop motion to found footage. My favourite might be Nicolas Ménard’s video for the track Lobby Music:

One final reminder that I am offering original watercolour drawings as a reward for anyone who donates $25 or more to the Toronto Mini Maker Faire’s funding drive.
Funding has reached 87% with only two days to go.
And if you can’t afford $25, even one or two dollars helps. If you’ve enjoyed reading Drawn over the last six years, I consider even the smallest donation a huge personal favour. It goes a long way to help organize such a big event that promotes artists and creativity.

Trexels - Star Trek Pixel Art by John Martz and Koyama Press
I made this print with Koyama Press, featuring 235 Star Trek characters in pixelated form. Can you name them all? We’re giving away two copies to the Trekkies with the best guesses. The print debuts at MoCCA in New York this weekend, and then officially goes on sale a week from today.

Allow me to point to my own work for a change. My own online comics, loosely published under the name Machine Gum, have been the focus of regular updates for the past few weeks, and maybe you’ll enjoy them. If you’re into robots suffering from anxiety and existential crises, that is.

Nominations for the 2011 Joe Shuster Awards

johnmartz:

I was alerted via Twitter this morning that Heaven All Day was nominated for a Joe Shuster Award / The Gene Day Award for Self-Publishers.

Hey our fearless leader, Mr John Martz, announced he’s up for a nomination for the Joe Shuster Award! Yay! Congrats John! And congratulations to all the nominees! We all know it’s one thing to talk about doing a comic, but it’s a whole other thing to walk the walk and actually do it. Good work!
