For the last few years, I’ve been submitting posters to the Halifax Pop Explosion’s poster series. This year, I was thrilled to get to do something for Eugene Mirman’s performance at Reflections Cabaret. I’m pretty excited for these shows.
Here’s the poster:
Come check out the show!
I got into the One of a Kind show in Toronto! I applied back in April & had been on the waiting list up until I got the call early this month. For the next two and a half months I’ll be working flat out to prepare for this show, finish fufilling my Indiegogo orders & getting ready for the Xmas rush. It’s a little overwelming, but also very exciting. If you live in Toronto & you are interested in attending the show, click the image below It’ll give you a discount code for tickets to the show. I’d love to see you there!
I totally promise. I was waiting on a bag order & a scoop coater. The scoop coater isn’t here yet, but I borrowed a friends & I’m printing the bags this weekend. It’s going to take me a little while to fufill all the orders, but I will do my best. BTW here’s a preview of the first Subscription T.
I’m going to be vending at Sappyfest in Sackivlle NB all weekend. This is one of my absolute favorite shows to vend at, Sackville is a magical littel town & Sappy is always a blast. If you are in town, come by and say hello. My table at the Seaport Market will be open as usual.
We have killed our Indiegogo goal. but i’d like to get a few more subscribers signed up to the Quarrelsome yeti Conservator (T-shirt of the month club) It’s a great deal, for real!
I’m going to be at this tomorrow. And all weekend. I’m pumped! Come get yer t’s, and yer tunes.
My good buddies Rob and Jill helped me out with a litte video for the Indiegogo campaign. We are fast approaching 50% of our goal check it out to see what you get in return for helping me buy a new press.
You May have noticed a little indiegogo widget on the left side of my page. The Quarrelsome Yeti (me) is moving out of town, and I won’t be able to get out to the studio that I currently use to proint all of my stuff. So I’m trying to raise some funds to put together my own print shop. So far it’s goign great, but we’ve got a ways to go until we’re fully funded.
I’ve set up “perks” for each support level that I think are pretty fair, it’s more like a mass pre-order than anything. I’m pretty excited to have my own print studio, and I think once I get it up and running, you’ll see marked increase in the amount of stuff coming from the Quarrelsome Yeti.

These two out of print tshirts are availabe for order ONLY throught this indiegogo campaign. They Are currently out of print, but I’m bringing them back one last time to help out with my fundraiser.
A couple of months ago I was thrilled to get to work with the Halifamous candy shop Freak Lunchbox. These guys were amazing to work with, and they basically let me do whatever I pleased. I’m really happy with the results.

Horney Brau, The Quarrelsome Yeti beer of choice
I printed two new designs last week. I’m super happy with them. This first one is going to replace my original “Fightin’ Yeti” design in my stock. I think I may updated this character every year or so. Waterbased print, 2 colors on American Apparel 50/50 Heather Black T’s.
Here’s a Detail:
Just got some new stickers in from stickermule.com . I’ve been ordering from these guys quite a bit, I’m pretty happy with the print quality, and I’m extremely happy with their turnaround time. I stuck one on a lampost outside of my house a couple of years ago, and it’s still holding on pretty strong, they are pretty rugged.
Check em out!

This job is pretty lonely, I share a studio with someone, which helps, but when I’m drawing It’s usually in a room by myself. I’ve been listening to posdasts for a few years now, there are so many amazing shows avaialable now totally for free, and on demand, that it is mind blowing. Here’s a few that I use to keep my mind stimulated while I draw:
The Long Shot Podcast - With Eddie Pepitone, Sean Conroy, Jamie Flam, and Amber Kenny
I can’t get enough of Eddie Pepitone, I’m new to this one, but I like it so far.
The Dana Gould Hour - Dana Gould is a terriffic comedian, and he used to be one of the head writers for the Simpsons. It’s very well produced, and funny. There’s a gritty B movie undertone to this show that I really love. Eddie Pepitone is on this a bunch too.
WTF with Marc Maron (of course) This show is pretty popular, I love hearing artists talk about what they do, and Maron is a great interviewer.
Bullseye with Jesse Thorne - This is the show that got me hooked on podcasts. I absoultely love it. It’s fun, and they’ve introduced me to lots of awesome stuff.
The Nerdist - More great interviews, and the “Hostfull” episodes are just as fun
Illustration Underground - I used to listen to these two guys years ago on different podcasts before I started working professionally. This is a new show , and there’s only a few episode. It’s pretty good so far.
Adventures in Design - Speaking of good Illustration / Design podcasts… This is absolutely my new favorite. The two hosts of this show, are super talented illustrators, the show is entertaining, and informative. I just wish there where more episodes.
Radiolab This show is wonderful, it is beautifully produced, and its its inspiring. Also, you’ll learn something, probably.
I listen to a bunch more, and I’ll post more in the future. If you know of any good ones, please let me know.
I decided to finish that pug sketch. I took a screen grab of the process. This is probably around 2 hrs total of drawing.
I usually have one or two random sketches on the go to warm up. It takes me about 20 minutes of drawing, especially with the tablet, before I can get my lines to work the way I’d like them to. This usually leads to a bunch of random, finished illustrations.
I drew this one.
Here’s the stop motion video of last month’s Metal Mouth Wednesday “live painting”. I didn’t put it together myself, but I think it’s really nicely done. Next month my buddy Jono Doiron is going to be painting, along to the live sounds of PITH, SPEW, and CREDGIDENCE. I’m pretty excited to see what jono come’s up with, check out his stuff to see what youa re in for.
