There's now a Flickr pool of art that was submitted to the Open Call page for BEASTS! Book Two (due out later this year). So far about 75 people have added their piece to the page. Above is Daniel Goffin's creature.
While you're at Flickr...
I also just posted sneak peek scans of the printed Dash Shaw book covers (white and black on Kraft always looks good). On my page here.

A pencil rough from a panel of Charles Burns' Black Hole, including a mysterious clue from Charles ("Who's this guy?"):
This illustration is the cover art to Joe Coleman's Man of Sorrows book from Gates of Heck. This is a great book, BTW, which basically is an explication of one of Coleman's most famous paintings, with die cut details from the painting tipped into each page with extensive commentary on each by Coleman.
A spot illustration by Archer Prewitt. I have no idea what this was for, but it's pretty:
Super cool Chris Ware poster art for a Sea & Cake show (featuring the aforementioned Archer Prewitt):
A lovely little Jim Woodring "Pupshaw" painting. This one's going in my soon-to-arrive baby girl's room:
Stay tuned for the newest "Chocolate Cheeks" strip from Steven "Ribs" Weissman... meanwhile, here's his cover illustration for this week's issue of The Stranger. (You can see his illustration for the "I, Anonymous" feature in the paper every week.)
