Benjamin Dewey

I made this Jed Bartlet campaign poster to help me keep my sanity and for my own enjoyment. Most of the time I don’t get to make things for myself. My wife and I are huge fans of the West Wing. I often wish it was real, hence the poster slogan. It’s available on my etsy shop with half the proceeds going to the IRC.

Have you considered the possibility that your best friend, neighbor, room mate, sibling or dear old parents might slip suddenly towards the macabre? Try your hand at the whimsical practice of super-villain phrenology; it’s our best testing method aside from testing their blood for phlogiston…

You will need access to a printing mechanism, shears, some adhesive paste and 5 uninterrupted minutes. I wish you the best of luck.

RED THORN Vol. 2: MAD GODS AND SCOTSMEN

After lying entombed in a subterranean prison for 2,000 years, the Celtic demigod known as Thorn has finally escaped-thanks to the power hidden in a determined young artist named Isla Mackintosh. Now the tremors from his supernatural jailbreak are shaking the British Isles from Glasgow to London-and breaking down the barriers between this world and the Otherworld beyond. But the forces that have invited Thorn’s wrath have plans of their own-subtle designs woven around Isla and her missing sister, whose murder 25 years ago set everything in motion. Will Thorn’s carefully plotted coup succeed against them? Or will Scotland and the rest of the mortal realm sink into a new dark (and bloody) age?

Friends, readers and colleagues,

It is with surpassing pride and gladness that I can, at long last, show you the cover to the upcoming complete collection of this series and announce the first opportunity to pre-order an copy for your very own. The book will include every tragedy, a 22 page story written and drawn by me just for the collection along with additional illustrations and other exclusive content that will not be available online.

If you have enjoyed the series thus far and would like to support it in a tangible way, it would be a great catalyst in the longterm potential success, proliferation and acceptance of this book in this wide, wild world of ours, if you would consider pre-ordering it from one of the following retailers:

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

Itunes/Ibooks

Please tell your friends, professors, pumpkins, pets and sworn enemies about it. I thank you for all the support, kindness and for the shared sense of comedy emerging from tragedy that we apparently share. Good day to you all.

Most sincerely,

BD

Books I’ve Read So Far This Year

Hey, tumblr! It’s halfway through the year now (how???) and I was looking through my book list and thinking that I have read so many good books this year, so I thought I would just throw my book list as it stands under a cut, with brief notes on the books in case anyone is interested! Or wants to talk about how awesome they are. Or even wants to recommend me some based on what I’ve read!

Or just tell me what you’ve been reading, if you do not want to deal with, um. A 90-item annotated list.

It’s possible that I read too much.

Keep reading

When the shouts of the fishmonger, bootblack and hansom cabbies ring too loudly, you need time to finish your symphony celebrating the cetaceans or simply mean to pine for halcyon days as they fade fast into the oblivion of memory… retire to your chambers and post this helpful tag around the entry mechanism; in this way, your fellow hominids will know that you’ve grown grim about the mouth and/or require solitude to improve this maddening orb.

Follow these simple instructions and make your needs plain: 

1. Print out on sturdy stock at a scale of 11 X 8.5 inches
2. Separate the tag (seen on the right) from the inserts be means of common shears, sever the cards from each other.
3. Cut out the central circle and make small incisions on the black corner frame lines by means of a razor.  
4. set in whichever miniature placard best describes your private task.

Books Born on Tumblr

When a Tumblr and a publisher love each other very much, and they want to express that love physically, a book is born.

SO, JUST TO SUMMARIZE SOME AMAZING THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN GOING DOWN:

  • Nero O’Reilly and I have a 20-page kaiju murder mystery story in New World, the talent-packed new colonization-themed sci-fi/fantasy comic anthology coming out from Iron Circus (y’know, the publisher who put out Smut Peddler/Sleep of Reason/Poorcraft/basically every dope Kickstarted comic thing).
  • AS OF TONIGHT, the New World Kickstarter has already zoomed past $35,000! IT IS AN IMMENSELY POPULAR KICKSTARTER, and there are still 18 days to go!
  • This means that the final book is going to look SO DOPE. Picture this: alternate cover by Benjamin Dewey, the Tooth & Claw artist? Hardcover option available? This book is going to be like the Rolls Royce of anthologies. AND THERE ARE MORE STRETCH GOALS TO COME.
  • It also means that we get PAID EVEN BETTER than the already super reasonable amount of not coupons, not ExposureBucks, but real-life spendable meat dollars we were already getting paid! Awesome!

I’m gonna warn you right off the bat: our comic is weird. We collaborated on it for everything– from script to pencils to inks, even inking different parts of the pages! Plus we basically poured our love of monster movies into into this sucker WHILE ATTEMPTING TO ALSO COMMENT ON HOW MESSED UP OF AN EFFECT THAT OVERPOWERED FOREIGN INTERESTS CAN HAVE ON A REBUILDING NATION. Even without reading it on that level, though, it’s cute and fun.

This story WILL NOT be coming out in any other weird little mini, compilation or whatever from us, so IF YOU WANT TO PRE-ORDER IT and get some of this rad action for yourself (as well as 340 pages of awesome comics by other talented creators, naturally), visit the Kickstarter here:

There! Three times so you can’t miss it!

We’re super super psyched to be a part of this incredible comic project! We hope you’ll dig our story and NEW WORLD as a whole!

Emerald City Comicon is still in swing, but today was pretty damned eventful, so here’s a post about it. Well, and I want to gush and brag a little bit.

First up is my amazing sister as Chandra! Arielle made it as a finalist in the cosplay contest, which is just so awesome. First time she molded armor and painted and she did GREAT. Look for her at PAX Prime this year!

Then there’s my husband, who was gracious enough to bend to my fangirl ways and dress as Newt once again, with apocalypticash as Sasha. I love seeing Katie’s cosplays. I see something different EVERY TIME. Then there’s me with my seestor because I couldn’t resist. She was too awesome for words.

Pony commission! I don’t do many convention commissions because I just spend too darn long on them, but I love the ones I do. :3

Wicked cool xenomorph in the cosplay contest! Dude did an AMAZING JOB.

And finally, my acquired items this far! The Pacific Rim print from Benjamin Dewey of tragedyseries fame (it is GORGEOUS in person). It was a pleasure to say hi and introduce myself! Then shoomlah’s new art book because I can’t resist one of my favorite artists. That Quality Time print was something my husband randomly found and had to get because it fits us so perfectly ( I believe it is from jefbot.com ). And what is easily the coolest thing I think I got this weekend was an eths-skin’s booklet from sfemonster who I GOT TO MEET IN PERSON and I may have gotten excited and hugged him without asking first and I was terribly embarrassed. I AM FROM A FAMILY OF HUGGERS I AM SO SORRY I WANT TO HUG EVERYONE.

I’ll probably make a couple posts later about ECCC (I have to blab about Newt cosplayers), but I needed to get some feelings out!

This is the first of three pieces I made that are meant to symbolize the high cost of battle between great nations… or that simply include things I find enjoyable to illustrate. It was very nice to meet those of you who came to offer your greetings at the convention. Prints of this image (and other new items) are now available in the emporium!
