I started a tumblr and have been posting dumb shit and photos of dogs on it.

But now I'm posting stuff relating to a project I am working on, and so if you wish to be updated on it, go follow my tumb:


YEAHHHHHHHHHH! WOOO!! Jason wrote this, so it refers to me in the 3rd person:


My good friend Douglas E. Sherwood (Oni Press) proposed a tribute show based around his favorite X-Men character, Kitty Pryde. His own personal experiences with having hemophilia his entire life also inspired him to make the show a fundraiser for the Hemophilia Treatment Center at OHSU. So we’ve asked dozens of comic artists, graphic designers, and illustrators to do their rendition of Kitty Pryde for this May’s First Thursday show. We’ll have original artwork and prints for sale and 100% of the proceeds go the the HTC.

WHO: Over 70 artists including: Bryan Lee O’Malley, Farel Dalrymple, Nathan Fox, Vasilis Lolos, Jeffrey Brown, Tom Neely, Brandon Graham, Corey Lewis, Zack Soto and more!
WHAT: Kitty Pryde tribute show, fundraiser for HTC
WHEN: Thursday, May 7th, 6-10pm
WHERE: Floating World Comics, 20 NW 5th Ave #101


Kitty Pryde is a lot of people’s favorite X-Man. The fact that she was an adorable thirteen year-old girl when she joined the X-Men might have something to do with it. She can “phase” through objects, which means she can walk through walls or have dangerous weapons pass right through her without killing her. Only Joss Whedon can kill her, but don't bring that up with Mr. Sherwood.
Here’s a 99% complete list of all the artists that have contributed their time and talent to this show:

There's also a blog we're doin' to keep up the hype HERE:


I've always sort of hated the Knife, but…

This fucking Fever Ray album is incredible, hot, dark shit. Fever Ray is the solo project from Karen Dreijer, one half of Swedish indie darlings The Knife (who I've never really given a shit about). I can't stop listening to this album today. And fucking Charles Burns did the cover:

You can check out an equally astounding Fuck Buttons remix of her first single, "If I Had A Heart," over at Stereogum.

And here is the creepy & gorgeous video for said first single:

Album is out now via digital download. Look out for it.

What a night

I sincerely thank all of you who showed up tonight. It meant a lot, really. And, perhaps because of your presence, I may have somehow moved up the ladder of artistic respectability.
Because my good friend Jason Levian has asked me to go ahead and curate my own show at Floating World, in May of 2009, titled WALL OF PRYDE. And so now l ask all of my friends who can hold a brush/pen/pencil/crayon/penis/x-acto knife/fire hose/ketchup packet, etc. to illustrate their own rendition of my all-time favorite X-Men character, KITTY PRYDE (AKA Shadowcat).

SO HEY: any of you that hold any interest in contributing to the show dedicated to my favorite X-Men character, please let me know. I would love to have you be a part of it.

In case you don't (FOR SOME UNGODLY REASON) know who Kitty Pryde/Shadowcat is, here is a primer:

And here. We. Go.Collapse )

So if I haven't already contacted you regarding this manner, leave a comment if you are interested.

Anyway, I thank you all, again, from the bottom of my cold, dark, steel heart.

So much love,

Douglas E.

I hope most of you have read this after waking up.

(no subject)

I think I can safely say that I am beyond the period some call "the worst years of my life."

At least it sure feels that way.

Maybe money could start coming in a little quicker, but other than that… shiiiyet.
