Multiplex - a comic strip about life at the movies

Han Solo

Just a quick (vector) sketch of Han Solo to de-stress… It’s almost impossible to overstate how awesome Astute Graphics’ DrawScribe plugin for Adobe Illustrator is. It makes drawing in Illustrator so much more intuitive and gestural than anything in the program’s native toolset. I love it.

Sale on original art in the Multiplex Store! (or, a little help from my friends)

If you’ve read Multiplex for long, then you know I hate doing this kind of stuff, but between expenses for Emerald City and the tax man, money is… shall we say… very very tight right now. Beyond tight, actually. Suffocatingly tight.

I am working on a very cool freelance project right now, but I won’t be seeing any money from that for at least a month. (Ah, the life of a freelancer.) And there is a chance I will be doing a Kickstarter project for Book 2 soon, but that money would be entirely for the book (and also well over a month away).

So! In order to hopefully raise some of the several hundred dollars I need ASAP, I’ve dropped the price of hand-drawn sketches in the Multiplex Store to $20 (plus shipping) and vector portraits to $60 for the next two weeks to help raise a little cash.

You can also get pages of original art from the zombie story arc (feel free to inquire about any other pages not listed in the store) or be a Multiplex: The Movie Sponsor and appear as a zombie in the strip when filming gets started back up again.

I am also available for any freelance illustration or print design & production needs you might have — for your blog, website, magazine, book, whatever! You can see my portfolio over at and shoot me an e-mail with details!

And, of course, if you don’t want to clutter your house up, you can just donate to Multiplex via PayPal:

A new trailer for Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard’s long-delayed Cabin in the Woods has hit the interwebs thanks to FearNET.

The R-rated horror flick stars Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford, and it hits theaters on April 13. You know you’re gonna watch it. Joss Whedon, man. Joss Whedon.
