I’ll be at the Emerald City Comic Con all weekend long hocking prints and shirts. Find me during the convention at the Topatoco booth, 1102 on the fourth floor skybridge (and find me outside convention hours LARPing Frasier).

People are always asking me, “Brandon, when are you going to team-up with Dr. Crusher?” Well, the wait is over! This image was created for a fundraiser in support of Gates McFadden’s experimental theater lab on February 11 (read more about the event here). Gates has offered to sign a small number of prints, which you can pre-order in my store.

This is a very belated wedding gift for Jeffrey and Holly, who run Topatoco. Way back at Calgary Expo Holly mentioned, “I kind of want to get Jeffrey a velvet painting of Barry from Storage Wars,” and I was like, “Dude, I’ll do it, that’s totally something I should have already made.” I even had my sometimes-assistant Lacy build and stretch a black velvet surface, but as it turns out, working on velvet is incredibly hard. So I made this delicate oil painting instead. Prints here.

The 2014 T-mas cards are here! The inspiration for this design comes from a set of Western-themed Christmas cards by the painter Jack Sorenson purchased in an Oregon truck stop during Sears Trip 2013. I discuss the origins of T-mas on my pal Tony Thaxton’s year-round Christmas podcast, Feliz Navipod.

Three new shirts in my TopatoCo.com online store! There’s Captain Picard’s Mean Pizza-Launchin’ Machine, a shirt about the terrifying menace that is Bane, and a new version of Metalhawk. Oh yeah, also I met Jeff Goldblum and he liked my book.
