    I don’t have time do a proper write up about Mondo Con as I am still playing catch up (as usual) but I wanted to quickly go over what I’ll have and where I will be. 

    I’ll be in the Kirby Hall at table T-2. In between the wonderful Scott C., and Jay Shaw. I’ll have all of these prints above. Plus SUPER Dicks of the 20th Century, and SUPER Dicks of Mondo Con. I’ll have APs of almost the entire Marvel show I did in April, as well as a new shirt, and some fun other things. 

    Also, just as a heads up, I will be in a panel about toys today from 11-12, and will be unavailable. 

    I’m probably forgetting something major, but yeah, I got all kinds of stuff! Swing by, say hello, have an amazing time. It’s gonna be great!

    I don’t think I’ll be selling this but I wanted to share anyhow. These were the first two (test) cels made for my 2012 Just Like Us show. They are unique for a couple reasons, the main one being the black lines, the other is the size (8x10). They were also on a different kind of cel. Super like how it looks. View high resolution

    Dudes!You may or may not have noticed that this past year, I have done a pretty shitty job of updating my tumblr. There are multiple reasons for that, but the bigger part was that I stopped identifying with it. It didn’t feel like “me” despite it being a collection of things I liked. In a desperate attempt to reinvigorate my love and use of tumblr, I have done a mass purge of posts, removing nearly 80-90% of them. The rest have been saved or moved, which brings me to my next point.I now have two tumblrs. 
blog.sirmitchell.com:
a tumblr focused purely on me and my art. 
tacosupremeleader.com: 
a tumblr where I post stuff that inspires me, things that make me laugh, and shit I find interesting. On top of that, my favorite posts from the last 5 years are archived here. 
Some people want to follow me just for the art I do, and some like the funny/interesting stuff I find/reblog. Now you can do one, the other or both. There will be no overlap between the two. 
I spent the last 24 hours curating my favorite tumblr posts from the last 5 YEARS, so if you’re having a night in, have a look through tacosupremeleader.com, as there are some real gems in there. Super high quality stuff here guys!

    Sara Pocock is animating some of my little food dudes in the hopes that we can do something much crazier with them. This is the first of hopefully many tests. SO EXCITED. Thanks Sara! View high resolution

    I recently got to design a vinyl record for Batman: The Animated Series theme song. Mondo was doing villains, I picked Joker. This was the result. 

    As it’s one of the best animated shows of all time, I was VERY stoked I got the chance to do this.

    I did this for Gallery Nucleus to sell at SDCC as a companion piece to last years exclusive.

    SDCC recap!

    I had an EXCELLENT time at Comic Con. It’s hard not to when you get to meet a bunch of new people, see friends, and nerd out for almost a week straight. I wanted to thank all the people who follow me on here who stopped by! You guys are always a treat. 

    Pictures (from left to right): Me, wielding my favorite SDCC exclusive. Late night human pyramid at Jim Lee’s 50th birthday party, featuring Jim Lee, Chris Daughtry (?!?) and my old pal Emi Lennox (among others). Me with old pals Alex Pardee and Dave Correia. Me in 10 years AKA Jay Shaw. Another shot of Lil Mikey, my new TMNT toy that’s being released in the  near future. My booth babe Bryan watching over all my wares. Me doing a quick sketch while wielding the power. My favorite cosplay of the con! Me doing a signing at the Mondo booth for Tree Huggers. The con exclusive Lil Mikey ice cream pin, which was a huge hit!

    See you guys next year I hope!

    Curious about when all my Marvel Show APs, SDCC leftovers, and all other prints from 2014 will be going in my shop? Sign up for my newsletter. It’s brand spankin’ new, and will only be used for good, I promise!

    "Tree Hugger"
I didn’t get a chance to post this while at SDCC, but this was my contribution to Mondo’s set of Gaurdian prints. Sold out super quick! I’ll have some artist proofs at some point. Thanks to everyone who came by the booth! It was a lot of fun meeting everyone!

    Just want to mention that I plan on doing a whole series of these dudes, with hopefully some more surprises in store than just prints. On the off chance that both of these prints (and future breakable dudes) sell out, I will be reprinting a variant of them facing the opposite direction (with a slight change) so that any matchup is possible. I REALLY like making these dudes, and I hope people enjoy them enough to put them in their homes, so that others may imagine the ensuing battle. 

    Both of these dudes will be #SDCC exclusives, available at my table at the Nucleus booth (#2743).
