Don't Hold Your Breath

BRIANEWING:
Check it out! My buddy crankbunny the “paperwizard”™ has done it again! She wrote and designed TWO NEW books about her secret paper (witch)craft techniques! You’ve drooled over the collaboration we did and even more so over the #Life Aquatic piece she did for spokeart

These books are full of #art boners! That’s right ladies and gents “art boners for everyone!” Crankbunny is the Oprah of paper crafts.
She also made me into one of her characters
- Sir Bryan Ohdatwang. Even more reason to love it!

:

TWO NEW SECRET SOCIETY OF PAPER CUTS How-To BOOKS!
Each is a storybook paper craft how-to book that your grandmother on LSD would really enjoy.

Preorder from Sept 13 to 25!
Written, illustrated and general ridiculousness by Crankbunny.

The release day for both books on Sept 26th - so enjoy this small bucket of time to get a hold of each or one book of your choosing at a discount.

• Each book focuses laser tight on two different paper craft techniques.

• Learn to how to make all sorts or pop up cards OR create different types of paper dolls (including mechanical ones!).

• Each book includes 4 how-to projects with templates.

• Additional related templates and resources are available online with a secret membership login to the Secret Society of Paper Cuts (SSoPC) official website.

I was excited when I saw you listed as a guest! Just out of curiosity, do you think you'll be able to do portfolio reviews (or something) for people?

Yeah no problem! I kinda nerd out so take notes…

Prepping for @mondocon (aka-freaking out) and had more stuff than what will fit inside my booth. Sadly none of the #testprints will be there. So I’m posting them up to my shop. Each is18x24signedone of a kind #justlikemeMore info here Test prints are basically made from taking leftover or fucked prints and using them to test the color and registration of the next print. Each one is a happy accident #justlikesomeofthekidsigrewupwith I’ve been hoarding test prints for years because they all look really cool! I don’t wanna part with them but at the same time I don’t have space for them either. So treat the deformed children of mine with love and care.  All my prep (freaking out) for mondocon is done. Check out the amazing guest list of artists they have!! I’ll be there early to relax and get my BBQ on. Hit me up if any of you wanna hang. Otherwise I will be at BOOTH B17 the whole weekend giving you that look the “did you bring me booze” look. You know what I’m talking about.  I’ll have some sold out, weird and new prints available as well as original art, patches and vinyl toys from #metacrypt Now I gotta get a haircut and do my laundry and remember to eat today and draw more.  ALL orders are shipping today.

Cropped Finished inks sneak of another print release I’ll be doing with galerief for my solo show #screamwithme November 7th in Chicago. #dabears Happy to be done with this piece because I ran out of ink towards the end. I had a couple of bottles put aside and when I opened them they had evaporated. Oy vey… I had to put pants on #firstworldproblems and walk over to the art supply store but no luck. I checked online and the shit was sold out everywhere or going for $30 and up. Unless I see children crying and their tears drip dropping into the bottle of ink I am not paying that much for black water.  I hit up @thedrowntown for a man date and we found some of my precious ink out in the burbs. We also spent an hour trying to find the most blackest of metal candles and things that looked like reliquaries to house candles and vinyl toys. Stuff was on sale and we couldn’t say no.  Prepping for #mondocon booth B17 today and shipping ALL orders from the past week.  Can’t wait to show you guys the next pieces I started working on.  #illustration #anatomy #nolips #overlookhotel #hachachacha #wasthemoonlandingfaked #whatsupdoc #ineedcoffee #andafrenchmaidladytohelpmeprepformondocon #iwishstarbucksdeliveredtheirbreakfastsandwiches #inking #holdthecheeseplease

Odd question: what do you use in your hair?
Anonymous

The blood of dead children..and a bit of hairspray.

Here’s the final patch design for my #Turbojugend #southcalifas chapter. Really stoked on how this turned out. @the_drunken_sailor asked for something evil with a pentagram and I kinda went nuts. So nuts this is the less-busy version. The original didn’t work cuz i crammed so much info into it. I fell down a rabbit hole while researching symbolism and occult imagery. But it was so much fun!!! These patches aren’t for sale. So don’t ask. They’re just used for trade amongst other #jugend which I think is more rad.
The #Qotsa cosmic prints are sold out. Thanks everyone. If you want me to post other weird one-offs let me know. 
Still no coffee. #effmyel All work and no coffee makes Brian go something something. Angry?! Don’t mind if I do!!!
Back to inking pieces for my solo show at @galerief November 7th in Chicago. I’ll post a progress shot later. #shotlikeashotofespresso #selftorture
Prior to that I’ll be at #mondocon and #NYCC

Here’s another #queensofthestoneage poster printed on the metallic paper. This is part of the original run and not printed later (likesomeposterartistsdocoughcough). I put these aside and found them again last weekend. Ugh. I think that #sexyfrenchmaidlady got delivered to the wrong address because I’m in deadline mode and my studio looks like a tornado hit it. #DeadlinesRuleEverythingAroundMe
So yeah…these were printed in an edition of 5. More info HERE
*Please note the URL change and that I can NOW ACCEPT credit cards. Also one of the prints has 2 minor scratches and is available separately for less. #wepassonthesavingstoyou
Day 2 and no coffee. #grumblegrumble I’m on inking duty so I can’t have caffeine because it makes me all mental and shakey. So I’m in a crappy mood but the piece I’m working on is turning out nice. Back to making my angry donuts…

Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.
In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.
I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.
Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.

P.S. Signal boost this if you’re able.

As I understand this ruling, it means that businesses now have to pay extra to ISPs to have access to their websites through that ISP provided at a reasonable speed. If you don’t pay, users’ access to your website will be slowed to a crawl - so independent people and small businesses can forget about getting onto that high speed access tier. 
This means that the American internet is going to be firmly under the control of those who have the most money. You’ll only get to see the content of those who can pay the ISPs to provide access at a reasonable speed. This means that you can expect to see skewed representation of just about everything, with those bigger businesses who can afford to pay ISPs a premium for access deciding what you can and cannot read, view and consume on the internet.
This is not something that we have in the UK. Our ISPs compete with each other to provide higher speeds, better services and lower prices, but because there’s a monopoly in the US of a few ISPs who provide services, they can afford to do this to you. You can’t go anywhere else, after all.
Everyone in the US needs to sign that petition, call their representatives, write angry letters and do whatever you can to tell your government that this ruling is Not Okay.

Yup.

And you thought your friends were a little “creative” with their gifts… @mochalouder and @shelleyv1666 the bestest friends who spend 83% of their lives on vacation…in Hawaii…sent me 2 dole pineapples. Last time it was an awesome Hawaiian shirt. I’m hoping next time it’s a plane ticket or a #sexyfrenchmaidladytikibartenderwoman
What do I do with these? Put a leash on them? Cover them with t shirts? Plant them in the ground? Can I bronze them? Do I offer them up to the elder gods in a ritual sacrifice so my solo show does really well on November 7th at @galerief ? #shamelessplug #ithoughtthesethingsgrewincans #worldscoolestaccountants #theysmellamazing #thepineapplesnotshelleyandmarcel #doesallofhawaiismellthisgood #isthiswhatjacobliveddonwhiletrappedontheisland #whatdothenumbersmean #havingaminocalifornicationmarathonbeforeipassout #moreinkingtomorrow #pineappleselfportrait #fruitbeard #weirdbeard

Finished inks for a new patch design for me and my buds in the #Turbojugend #southcalifas chapter in San Diego. If you scroll a bit you can see the patch I designed for them last year. El Presidente @the_drunken_sailor asked for something evil with a pentagram and this is what I threw at him. I’ll post the final tomorrow. Can’t wait to get the actual patches. Doing projects like this is fun (and a nice break) because I’m allowed a lot of freedom to do what I think works and because the patches aren’t sold. They’re traded amongst other #Jugend members throughout the world. It’s pretty fucking awesome to see someone rockin a patch I designed-especially in other cities and countries. The #Jugend are kinda like a drunker version of the Shriners and the ladies are sexier too. 
Prepping for #mondocon later this month and cranking away on my solo show at @galerief November 7th in Chicago. #canyousayChiCity we will have some news in a few weeks for y’alls. 
Thanks to the folks who picked up the cosmic #qotsa variants yesterday. I’ll be posting some other stuff tomorrow. The #taxidriver patches sold out…again. I’ll have more in a few weeks.
