Hello, tumblr. Click the image above for a peek at one of the new short comics that’ll be in my upcoming book. I colored it for online internet website viewing (The original is painted with gray inkwashes, which is how it will be printed in the book).
Outside of my kickstarter backers, this is the first real glimpse at new comics I’ve offered in about a year.

I love how short and beautiful this comic is, just like Phil McAndrew himself. Very much looking forward to Phil’s new book, which he talks about constantly on Twitter but almost never actually shows anything.

We had a fantastic time at the Cloudy Collection show at Minneapolis’s Pink Hobo Gallery, and the rest of the weekend at MIX was so much fun!

But like the fun weekend, all good things must end. So instead of moping, we’re excited to release our celebration of the endtimes in our 2012 Calendar of the Impending Apocalypse. Each month was made by a different artist - January through December were made by Phil McAndrew, Jaime Zollars, Ana Benaroya, Joe Alterio, Adam Koford, Vincent Stall, Joe Lambert, David Huyck, Kali Ciesemier, Luke Pearson, Emory Allen, and Amy Crehore, repectively. Check them out!

Phil McAndrew offers up solid advice for young cartoonists and illustrators. From my own experience, every word is true, but especially this:
I’ve tried many different methods of self promotion. I’ve sent out postcards in the mail, I’ve tried shmoozing at conventions, I’ve sent cold emails and have considered cold calling art directors (I’m still considering it). The most effective thing I’ve done has actually been the simplest: Draw awesome stuff and put it on the internet. Do this for a while and good things will happen.
