Get Back

In case this blog ever reboots, here's some Letter & Brush work from last year's Holi-Dakes album. Always a chance there's more to come! (Not to mention I failed to post my wedding invite work.) Sounds will be found at: https://jamesdake.bandcamp.com/album/happy-holi-dakes-2016

TIME IS AN ILLUSION

I really meant to get back to this place sooner than today. And I don't know I can guarantee this is the beginning of more regular posts.

But I do have some things to share...

Happy Holi-Dakes Vol. 5 - available here. See if you can figure out the track listing based on the artwork (or cheat and read the track listing).

And here is last season's card we sent around to the family and friends. Maybe someday you'll get one too!

I will post more about my recent adventure in designing a wedding invite of my own (or of our own, soon).

Happy Holi-Dakes!

Here's the newest cover illustration I did for Happy Holi-Dakes 2014, as well as my design for a new EP from my brother James and me. You can find both of them, musically, at jamesdake.bandcamp.com. Thanks!

Process & Progress

Recently, Studio 360 opened up a listener challenge involving drawing or doodling in tandem with cartoonist Alison Bechdel. This was just the kick in the pants I needed to do some drawing. I started more realistic, but eventually floated more to the realm of the ambiguous and abstract.

Infinite Corpsey

I finally got around to producing something for the website, Infinite Corpsey, which is a version of exquisite corpse - the game where you add things to a drawing without seeing the whole until it's finished. Infinite Corpsey follows a three-panel comic format with the skeleton character, Corpsey. Check it out!

If Then, Go To

I was reading on a sunny afternoon at a local coffee shop. Then something happened, so I made a comic about it.
