Cartozia Locales

Here are some images of exotic places I've created for the Cartozia series. Here we see denizens of Microbia (a very tiny country) and scavengers in the land of Smithereens, where everything gets blown to.

These appear in the first two issues. Nifty, eh?
Cartozia Tales is an exciting comic anthology by a crack team of plucky, up and coming young talents, celebrity guests, and a token old guy (guess who?).
Cartozia needs you! Pledge to our Kickstarter so more issues can happen. Every person who pledges even a dollar gets a pdf of the first issue right away. Tell all your friends.
Pretty please.

Cartozia Tales-- subscribe today!

By Thursday, we'll be launching a Kickstarter campaign for Cartozia Tales, at which point the subscription price will go up a few dollars to cover Kickstarter's cut. Subscribe before then and you'll give the project a boost and yourself a break. There'll still be crazy cool perks for subscribers to pledge for: original art, additional comics, cameo appearances, and more.

The Two Old Men of Kwantapafayo. What are the consequences of that game they've played for centuries?

Cartozia Tales #1

I just received my contributor copies of the first Cartozia Tales. It's a delightful project featuring outstanding contributions by Dylan Horrocks, Shawn Cheng, and many others. Order it from the website:

This is an illustration I did for one of our promo postcards. It'll run on the back cover of a future issue.
