Ask me something   I made Something Terrible, created Butterfly, co-founded Project: Rooftop, co-host The Last Cast podcast, ramble on Twitter, and I have a


    I’ve still got commissions on the list for #Deancon2013, the fundraiser I held last month to replace my Mountain Dew’d MacBook Pro. Thanks so much to everyone who ordered a superhero sketch from me. But as you can see from the above picture, my car, the Bat-Jetta, is in need of more auto repair expertise than I can provide at Trippe HQ. (I do feel unusually handy for deciphering the problem and getting it running well enough to get it to the shop without a tow.) I need to buy two parts for installation, and have a coolant leak fixed.

    So, I’m opening the doors for commissions once again, at the same lower-than-usual rate. Honestly, I’m having a great time working on these. I think they’re the most consistently solid commissions I’ve ever done, and while a lot of it has to do with being in the zone and staying warmed up, I honestly think it’s due in large part to how overwhelmingly grateful I feel to the folks who ordered these and helped me get back up and running on a new machine so quickly.

    If you missed out on #DeanCon2013 (which I’ll be caught up on by the end of the month), and would like a superhero sketch of your own, #DeanCon2 is the same deal:

    $35 - Single Character, Inked (superheroes and supporting cast only), 5.5” x 8.5”

    $50 - Two Characters, Inked (superheroes and supporting cast only), 5.5” x 8.5”

    + $5 for shipping in the U.S. (Email me for international shipping.)

    Once again, I have a number of slots available on a first come, first served basis, so you can PayPal me (, and include the character(s) you want in the notes.

    These will be drawn an shipped during October and November, so they make good Christmas gifts.

    Pretty great having my computer and my car break down within a month of each other, but I can’t complain too much, since I somehow get to solve problems by drawing superheroes. And I’m reminded of this:

    “You never know what worse luck your bad luck has saved you from.” - Cormac McCarthy, No Country for Old Men
