Creative Pep Talk Podcast
In October 2014, I created the Creative Pep Talk podcast to help commercial artists thrive financially making creatively fulfilling work. The podcast is still running, you can find it on iTunes or Soundcloud.
The popular illustration site, Illustration Age is the proud syndicate of the podcast.
CPT regularly ranks in the top 10 design podcasts on iTunes.
NOD - Daily Drawing Project
Daily drawing project, April 2011-12.
Every weekday for a year, I drew a new character with a name and description and then posted it to my blog.
The project ended with a successfully backed kickstarter to screen print each character postcard size. p.s. the kickstarter's biggest supporter was actor comedian David Cross!

The Indie Rock Coloring Book
An adult coloring book with each page tributing a different indie band in a creative way.
The Indie Rock Coloring Book came from a college project of mine. The real book was published in 2009 by Chronicle Books, with the help of the Yellow Bird Project.
Over 40k copies sold!
"I knew I'd found the perfect gift idea ... and, of course, I'd need a copy for myself."

"...my personal favourite, colour-in the picture "that proves that the water supply was enchanted in the Wisconsin cabin where the [Bon Iver] album For Emma, Forever Ago, was written." Maximum twee points there..."
"Kids today might have the internet and Pixar, but they're forced to live in a world without "Thundercats" or "Silverhawks" or "Defenders of the Earth". What are kids supposed to color in pictures of these days? Dora the Explorer? Please.
Fortunately, we have Andy J. Miller."
