Pinned Down

Minnesotans love them some state fair. This year the Star Tribune asked me to design twelve special pins, one for each day of the Minnesota State Fair. Each one highlights either a special food, monument, location, or person that has been vital to the history of the yearly event. I believe these will be available at your local CUB FOODS grocery store throughout the run of the fair.

DC Comics announced in USA TODAY that were redesigning the General Mills Monster Cereal characters. Top illustrator’s Jim Lee, Dave Johnson, and Terry & Rachel Dodson are redesigning the iconic characters of BOO BERRY, FRANKENBERRY, and COUNT CHOCULA for the front of their cereal boxes.

Each box will have a single page comic story on the back that will be illustrated by myself, written by Sholly Fisch, and colored by Dave McCaig. Big thanks to Cedric Hohnstadt,  for helping me out as he has worked on these designs of the characters in the past as well.

Here’s the box art coming from the other illustrators and then one of back panel comic strips I illustrated. Look for these around the month of October in grocery stores everywhere.

RATED E • DIGITAL FIRST It’s “Egghead Unbound” as Batman’s most egg-centric foe returns to terrorize Gotham City. Frustrated by his repeated defeats at the hands of the Caped Crusader, he invents a device that will egg-celerate his brain development to that of a being from the 40th century. Is this really possible? Does he now possess super-human abilities? Or has his mind simply gotten scrambled?

This project has been a total blast to work on. I hope people give the DIGITAL FIRST edition of the story a shot. We are trying to do a lot of cool transitions and little animation sequences to take advantage of that program. I’ll keep you posted on it’s release. Here’s some sketches I did a while back as samples. Big thanks to writer, Jeff Parker and editor, Jim Chadwick for letting me play in their sandbox.

All Stars of the Twin Cities

This week the annual Vita.Mn Magazine’s List of Lists issue hits. My art director wanted to keep the fun of last year’s comic book superhero theme and merge it with the biggest event of 2014 here in Minnesota, Major League Baseball’s All Star Game at Target Field. So it was fun to create some superhero character’s out of local celebs, chefs, media types, and fashion stylists. Below is the cover as well as some of the thirty plus icons I created for the interior.

Oh Snap!

The Schoonover Family got some less than awesome news recently. A check up in our attic revealed some major cracks on several rafters on the east and west sides of our house.
