The Revolutionary Times - No. 175 x No. 176



We're finally getting around to introducing the cupcake specialists behind the Cakes & Cons food truck. But something more sinister is behind that frosting...

The Revolutionary Times - No. 147


I haven't been posting many of the RT comics on here because we've gotten so many hits on our Tumblr and the main page. It's been incredible finally being able to reach out to a new audience this past month or so and I'm glad people are getting a chance to enjoy the comics. This is a quasi-sequel to our comic that was inspired by the unfortunate Mike Brown shooting, which is regards to the news of another shooting that happened in St. Louis this week.

Inktober





My contributions to Inktober so far. The first two were my first attempts at using actual ink for the longest (I think since college).

James Gardin - "Gold" (Prod. by KuroiOto)


The story behind "Gold" is a rich one. My brother in BLAT! Pack James Gardin has been steadily working towards his album The Living Daylights. One of the stand outs that came from those sessions is "Gold," an KuroiOto produced ode to the inspiration and beauty of women of all kinds. Today marks the day it finally makes it official debut and I helped designed the cover art for the single, a different kind of method than I'm normally used to doing yet keeping the simple aesthetic I love. 

Listen/Download James Gardin's "Gold" below!

Old School Smack/New School Smack



I do this thing where I sometimes browse my old DeviantArt page and be amazed at how far I come. I always wanted to take some of the stuff I did in high school and see just how much my style and technique as progressed but never got a chance to do it. But since I had some time on my hands I finally decided to redo some pieces.

Grantland: "How To Raise Your Zombie Baby"


This just dropped over on Grantland and let's all thank the show Z-Nation (and Walt's Dad for his sacrifice) for this article. I did the illustrations, Shea did the words. Go check it out.

The Revolutionary Times - No. 168


It's hard for a guy to even safely get milks these days. Thanks a lot, racism!

Rest in peace to Michael Brown, Eric Garner, John Crawford, Ezell Ford, and the countless other lives we all know have been taken away from this world because of prejudice.

The Revolutionary Times - Cupcakes X Summertime


Well summer's here and trust us, we're still around as well. Brandon and I are still in the lab cooking up new ideas and comics that will be up very soon. In the mean time we thought we'd drop this new "Spread The Revolution" illustration on you that also gives you a sneak peek at a trio of characters (well, there's two seen right now) that will be popping up in the comics very soon. Get your cupcakes ready and enjoy the summer, Revolutionary Times style. 

This illustration is also up for sale as a print over at our Society6 page as well so if you feel so inclined go ahead and cop one for yourself.

And as a bonus, check out the process behind the scene of the making the art in a new SMACK! SpeedComic.

The Revolutionary Times - No. 167


Words have the power to last forever. And that is definitely the case when it comes to the late great Maya Angelou, a woman who has touched many with her words and insight. We felt only right that the revolutionaries pay tribute to her and her influence on everyone.
