Last year I was told about Vice magazine looking for comic artists to do comics for an advertising feature for the beer Colt 45. I was jobless and desperate for any work I could get, so I went ahead and made a submission. Funny enough it was selected and I was asked to even do it in colour. Looking back I feel weird about the comic. I do not think it would of been something i would have done if I was not desperate. I expected to get paid a decent amount but as it turned out the page rate was quite low for an advertising feature. I never did receive the cheque for doing it, and I was unable to follow it up. Good news is I have contacted them again and different person is helping me sort this out. In other news, the New Yorker features an excerpt of Crumb's new book.

This is a literature anthology that came out this year. I features a variety of written pieces with illustration used through out thematically. I submitted a few drawings from my '100 doodles' project last year, from which one was used. The image was a little smaller than I would have liked and yes that is someone else name credited to my drawing in case you were wondering.
I do not post enough about the other places I sometimes put my work. Which means that people never know other places I put my work and it really just disappears then into the void. Over the next couple of days you will see a selection of work that has been included in other publications or projects, starting with a sample of the comic I did for Tango last year. You can read my earlier post about some of the ideas behind this strip and for more information on the Tango comics anthology go here, http://www.cardigancomics.com/
