Chimney Wine Slurricane #4 re-do

Via Flickr:
yet another one of my old drawings I re-drew for Slurricane #4 (which now looks like it will be ready either mid November or early December). I'm saving up all the new drawings I did for it until after the zine has been released. over 75% of it is going to be unpublished content!

Via Flickr:
Since I'm spending this month working on putting together Slurricane #4, I'm trying to resist uploading any of the 13 brand new never before seen drawings until the zine is actually released. instead, I'll be posting some of the old drawings that I've re-done specifically for being in Slurricane. this is the original drawing if you were curious. the plan is to have it out by mid November at the latest. until then you can email me at willlaren@yahoo.com and I'll send you an email when the zine is finally available.

Plonk Illustration from Monster Children #36

Via Flickr:
This is an additional illustration I did for the current issue of Monster Children for Dave Carnie's column Plonk. If you can't read the text it concerns wine tasting, stealing coke from your friends, and a rich couple with shitty faces. I still haven't gotten a hard copy of the magazine yet so these scans are all thanks to Benn ray at Atomic Books for scanning these for me! if you would like to buy a copy of this magazine please buy it from him here

Monster Children #36 back page comic

Via Flickr:

I still haven't gotten a hard copy of the magazine yet so these scans are all thanks to Benn ray at Atomic Books for scanning these for me! if you would like to buy a copy of this magazine please buy it from him here

slurricane 4 "Home Alone Laws" re-do

Via Flickr:
This drawing for Slurricane #4 is based on one I did a month or two ago. Figured since I already posted it I could upload it without it being too much of a spoiler. However, at least 75% of it will be never before seen drawings! not too sure of when the release date will be but most likely early November

Via Flickr:
Just thought I'd mention that I am currently working on Slurricane #4 with the goal being to have it finished and printed by November. since #3 was so luxuriously printed I'm thinking that this one I want to keep $5 or under. hopefully I can color them with the risograph when I finally figure out how to use the color drums I bought on Ebay.

my profile now up on the space 1026 website!

for those of you that don't know I moved back to Philadelphia and have joined the printmaking collective space 1026. even when I was an intern here two years ago I never believed I would be a part of it! I remember being blown away by so many of the artists that worked and showed here when I was in high school that it's a real privilege to be allowed to be a part of this legacy! seeing my name up on the site has really let it sink in!

My interview in Monster Children magazine

monster children interview

I got to do a quick interview for Monster Children Magazine's 35th issue (for sale now). I was lucky enough to have it conducted by none other than Jason Crombie, which was exciting since I've been a huge fan of Wooooooo Magazine since High School.
