Nakatomi On Matt Fraction on MLB!

Nakatomi On Matt Fraction on MLB!

Hey, I know that shirt!  Matt Fraction is the current writer of Iron Man (among other great books).  Iron Man is my all-time favorite super-hero.  So when eagle-eyed Nakatomi agent at large and Baseball Fan, Alan Reynoso passed this clip on to me, I just about squee-ed. Matt there, (and he is a WRITER- not an artist, as MLB credits him …duh!) is rocking Paul Pope’s invitational T-shirt from a few months back. Being a…

McDonaldland

I remember a better time. A time when life was about having fun, enjoying a sunny day, or just hanging out with friends. That was when it felt good to be alive. But now the only thing I feel about being amongst the living is lucky. Or unlucky, if you really want to be brutally honest. How can one feel good about being one of the only survivors of… McDonaldland! Thunderlips’s Top-Secret Private Journal Date:…

Kevin Tong indahouse

Kevin Tong blew into Austin like an LA smog, and left like a Texas Twister.  And why was he here? That’s right ladies, the man was here on a working vacation.  Between picking up a secret print set from one printer, printing another secret project in Nakatomi Print Labs, and printing the not-so secret Atlas Tron print, he was also here to party- Uh…there are no photos of Kevin actually partying, as he was the…

For $20 you get 5 posters in one tube! Each tube will contain…

The Greatness of Kevin Tong

The Greatness of Kevin Tong

Kevin Tong was nice enough to sit down with me for some hard-hitting Kevin Tong-related questions. Or maybe not sit down with me since it was by email. But he was nice. Biafrah Winfrey: What is your studio setup like? Kevin Tong: I usually work on art at a coffee shop (I go to various ones around LA to keep it fresh, though I like Peet’s.) At home I have a computer, scanner, and Wacom…
