Shirt Mania!

It's an exciting weekend here at Expiring Sun HQ. The first round of a series of shirts with my drawings arrived! And I've already sold over half of them, crazy!

Two different options are available, "The Gate" and "Perpetual Puke Machine." Printed in light grey on super soft Anvil® ring spun cotton tees! And printed with love by the masterful Sam McCanna at

Skurvy Ink


They are available at my store here:

Backlit 1

Ladies and Gentleman,

Today, I am pleased to announce that we have launched the early 2013 edition of Backlit! The first time around was an exercise in experimentation and development. This time around, it's all about refinement and advancement. I'm thrilled to say that I really feel like we have taken the zine of the future to the next level! Big thanks to all my Backlit homies - and especially to my fellow Overlord Josh Haun

for his positive attitude, ongoing support and patience to allow us to really fine tune the design side of this beast into something we're all proud of!

Here's the info on the new issue.

Thrash Sells... But Who's Buying?

I recently had the opportunity to do the artwork for an underground thrash compilation put together by Tridroid Records. Thrash is one of my all time favorite genres, so this was a blast! I really wanted to honor the legacy of all the greatest thrash bands in history but still create something new in the process. It's a mix of photography and illustration. I really want to do more metal covers!

The comp features 15 raw-as-fuck-ripping tracks from thrash bands all over the globe. It's available now on Tridroid's BandCamp page. And there will be physical copies soon!

Bang your head!!!
