This year is the 25th Anniversary of Image Comics and my introduction to Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon. Savage Dragon is the perfect embodiment of the American Superhero comic and I love it to pieces.

I was in the shower the other day and a really fast 3 page comic idea popped into my head and I knew I had to throw it down onto (digital) paper. Hope you enjoy, and go read some Savage Dragon comics!

It’s been a while since I’ve done some fun character drawings of Adventure Time and I thought it was about time that I remedy that atrocity. Yes, atrocity. I decided to tackle these drawing sessions with a theme as well. That theme, I guess, is “relationships”. I thought they turned out pretty fun!

Holy cow, guys! More comics! As you can tell from looking at my tumblr, I looooooove to draw comics!

Well, for the last 11 years I’ve been self publishing them and sharing them online, but for the last few months I’ve been pouring over all comics of the last 11 years and now I’m ready to share them with the world in a way that I’ve never done before! In an awesome book I’m calling, “Skidmarks”!

So today I’ve launched a kickstarter campaign to try and raise awareness, interest and most importantly, the funds necessary to publish these silly (yet very personal and objectively awesome) comics I’ve done over the years.

Check it out!

It’d mean the world to me if you’d spread the word by simply clicking the Facebook and Twitter buttons on the page in that link (beneath the video). Just two clicks makes a HUGE difference!!

Thanks,
DEREK!

The above BG has a little inside story to it, back in high school, I was in a lot of bands, and when touring acts come through they would often stay at my parent’s house. And because Utah is a damned desert, they would often show up in near-broken-down vans and campers. I thought I would memorialize those experiences of taking bands to auto shops early in the morning in hopes that they wouldn’t miss their next tour date by putting a broken down trailer in this BG.

While it may not be obvious to most, the drawing above is a loving tribute to one of America’s greatest film treasures: Tremors. The sunken car, the lighter, the homemade bombs… the big hole on the side of the cliff. How could I draw a desert scene with a cliff face and not include some Tremors references?! I could not, obviously!
