After a hiccup or two with an extremely unreliable screen printer, I finally settled on another company (Graphic22) to handle the printing of the second run of the ZOMBAMA: BRAINS shirt. Well, two big boxes of shirts arrived on my doorstep today, and now begins the arduous process of packing, labeling and shipping all the preorders I've received thus far. I should be able to knock it out within the next two or three days, work schedule permitting. I've got my 8-hour day job to fit in, as well as trying to wrap up a shirt design for Jinx that I've been fiddling around with for too long now (bless you, Kino, and your patience and understanding), but it shouldn't take me too long to do once I get the shirts separated by size and go through paypal printing shipping labels.
Thanks to all the folks who have ordered shirts so far, and for your patience and understanding with the delays in getting this thing done. There will be some shirts left over, but not many, and I'll be putting the remainder up in a separate online store very soon, so if there's anybody out there who still wants one, drop me a line and we'll see if we can't get you one. There are still men's and women's sizes available in S - XL, but there are very limited quantities of them.
Oh, and there is a slight variation in this design that makes it stand out from the TeeFury run -- just so they're not exactly identical. See if you can spot it.

I've always had trouble keeping a consistently updated sketchbook, and I've lately fallen into only doing sketches for whatever job I had currently on my plate. I've often found myself in the position of not having the time to just sit and sketch and work out my "sketching muscles", having instead to scramble for freelance jobs and concentrate on whatever job needs my focus, but current circumstances have given me a bit more room to concentrate on my sketchbook, so that's what I'm gonna do!
This quick sketch is part of my study for an upcoming piece based on the music of ELECTRIC SIX (It's an "evil boy eating an evil hamburger"). Their lyrics have been the inspiration for the seeds of many illustrations to come, as well as helping to power me through many long nights of working, and I hope to have more to share with you soon.
