Designie.

Friday, July 11th, 2008

Couple recent thoughts on designie stuff:

You see the new Charles and Ray Eames stamps? They’re wicked cool, and possibly my fave stamps of all time? (Not sure… I’m sure a vintage space stamp is my favorite stamp of all time.)

James Jean covers the new issue of Giant Robot (54) which hits your local comic shops this week. Nice cover, spread, interview, etc. James is designie.

Our pal J Chris Campbell has gone and designed a Colt 45 can. Heck, it’s a contest, so you should go vote for him!

Okeydoke.

And a last minute update: In celebration of 1 year anny of The Ride Home,  Joey Weiser is offering up some free sketches… “To celebrate The Ride Home‘s first birthday, I’m offering a gift to you! If you can send me some sort of proof that you’ve purchased a copy of The Ride Home between the dates of July 10th, 2008 and August 15th, 2008, I will send you an original TRH drawing, and charge you only enough to cover postage! That’s $2 for regular shipping, $5 for priority, and $10 international. If you are familiar with TRH, you may request specifics in the drawing, or I can make it a surprise! You can send copies of dated reciepts, shipping notices, photos of you at comic shops purchasing TRH, etc. to joey [at] tragic-planet [dot] com ! You have until August 15th, but why wait??”

It’s the ZZ2 Review…

… coming right at you!

“A turtle to a bear to a man waiting for a bus. A man waiting for a bus to a butterfly to attic bugs being chased by angry ants. Angry ants in a mechanical octopus to a battle robot to a fireman telling their story. The fireman back to the butterfly to a man dressed for a costume party. A man in a costume to a robot playing hide-n-seek to a germophobe back to the turtle. That’s ZIG ZAG in a nutshell.”

Marc Mason… waiting in his room. (Every time I click on that site, I hear Fugazi’s Waiting Room)

Zig Zag #2
by J Chris Campbell. Published by AdHouse Books

Mini-comic master, J Chris Campbell returns with vigor to the world of funny books with Zig Zag 2. He put his mouse to the pad and clicked out another mad capped masterpiece filled with robots, businessmen and especially bugs. The Attic Bugs story concludes as things have spiraled out of control for hapless friends Snuffy and Crandle. Follow along as they get lost in the woods, battle a monster and find a new friend. But the lovable scamps’ adventure is only part of 48 pages of interwoven kooky cartoon fun. Laugh along at costumed birthday party antics, business bureaucracy, and tons more silliness.
