Emerald City Comic Con and LEGENDS!

Alright, we are off to Seattle to see the Wizard, or at least expose who the man is behind the curtain that's been emailing us close-up photos of street-vomit for 2 weeks straight is.

Yep, Zerofriends is setting up shop at the EMERALD CITY COMIC CON this weekend where we will be releasing new stuff and signing and sketching on flat pieces of slaughtered trees to people who wait single file in a line at a certain time. Sound good? GOOD! There are a ton of other guests at this con who I can't wait to try to stalk, so if you are in the area, you should go nerd-out here with us.

Zerofriends will be hanging there with me (see signing schedule below), DAVE CORREIA, and artist JON WAYSHAK who will also be releasing a couple new prints. So say whats up. Or DON'T!
It's your funeral...

Here's all of the info and scheduling.

BOOTH #1101 (In the front Right Corner by the Women's bathroom!)

March 30 - April 1
Washington State Convention Center
Seattle, WA

Saturday, March 31 @ 2- 4PM
Sunday, April 1 @ 2-4PM.

Here's a few of our new products that will be for sale along with a TON of stuff from our CURRENT PRODUCTS

Emerald City Comic Con EXCLUSIVE!

We released the brown & yellow version of this as a Wondercon Exclusive last week and sold out, so it was only natural to release his other costume in Seattle.
Super limited edition of 40, signed and numbered, 17" x 22".

Finally have the "Slain Sharkasus" Hoodies back in stock, and in an all new colorway!

Series 1 was such a hit last week at Wondercon we had to follow it up with the brand new SERIES 2 of "My Favorite Classic Universal Monsters" plus a bonus (see below)!


"The Bride"

"The Phantom"

"The Invisible Man"

This Island Earth


This Island Earth was hysterically poked fun at in MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000: THE MOVIE, so it only seemed natural to offer a spoof of our own print with the 3 most famous silhouettes in nerd-ville aside from Darth Vader, Alfred Hitchcock and Air Jordan.
Limited Edition of 55 to commemorate the films original release in 1955

Signed and numbered

So there ya go, and as usual we will have some special deals going on in person at the booth so I hope to see you there!


Oh, and to non-con-goers, I just released two silly new shirts over at UPPER PLAYGROUND , who let me design some shirts for "LEGENDARY RAPPERS"!

No one asked us to make a Public Service Announcement with Mickey Avalon, but that never stopped us before.

Also, as usual, we will be giving away some fun free things with certain purchases and we'll have stickers and (double) stuff so come say hi. Booth #844. All of these items will be put up online after the convention, depending if they sell out at the con or not:)

I will be loosely wandering around the Con and hanging out at the Zerofriends booth high fiving, but I have some official signing times if you want to chat or get (double) stuff signed:

Weird Al HAMB-Bellished print!

Weird Al Yankovic without self-depreciating parody is like Twitter without self-complimenting re-tweets. Like a pigeon without shit in its beak. Like Guns without Roses. And like a Vacation movie without the Griswolds. So therefore, Weird Al-related art without self-depreciating value seems, well, valueless to begin with.

So, in celebration of my "Eat It" piece above, and its involvement with Weird Al & Gallery 1988's new Official Weird Al Retrospective and Comedian Themed Art Show "Is This Thing On?" that opens this Friday in LA, my girlfriend and I decided to make a one-of-a-kind, hand-embellished version of my "Eat It" art piece to hang up in the Gallery for the show. But it wouldn't make sense to hand-embellish it with traditional things like paint or ink, because this is fucking Weird Al, and it's a song about gluttony. And junk food. And love.
So Chloe and I both looked at each other and said "Let's HAMB-Embellish it!"
We then proceeded to hunt and gather a pile of various delicious lard-coated non-hollow point shells, do our best and silliest Kenny Powers impressions and began throwing food as fast and as hard as we could at my art piece.

And the finished product, alongside a handful of these framed photos taken by the healthy Chloe Rice will be on display and for sale at the opening THIS FRIDAY at Gallery 1988 Melrose in Los Angeles. But don't go if you're hungry, because the smell of this thing is insatiable! You can see the rest of the poster series HERE!

The Ammo.

The Sacrificial Lemmings

The finished, framed and resin-ed piece that will be hanging in the gallery for the opening.
Now get yourself an egg and fucking BEAT ITTTTTT!!
