jakeparker Black Bolt I did for @ericcanete in Denver last week. I always thought this character was way cooler than his suit, so I tried to level his suit up a bit. 2d

jakeparker Canti from my favorite anime FLCL!

I did this for the Tokyo Art Drop. Drew it while I was on the bus into Tokyo, so it's a little scratchy. See my next post to find out where its hidden!

jakeparker Tokyo Art Drop!

Hint: Outside the bookstore across from Tokyo Station.

I had a layover in Japan, and when I found out my flight out was delayed a few hours I decided to head into the city to do an art drop. Don't know if anyone who follows me is in Tokyo, but if you know someone who's here tag them. Good luck!!! #jpartdrop

jakeparker The MERLION.

Hey! I'll be in Singapore next week!!! I'm super excited. If you live there come see me speak at @LasalleSingapore on June 3. I'll be talking about my career in art and living a creative life.
I'll also be doing an art drop in the city somewhere, so watch for the hint next week.
So who here is from Singapore? What should I eat/see/experience while I'm in town? Know of any good bookstores?
And lastly, you know your country is cool if it's national symbol is a #MERLION.

Hey! I'm in Denver for the weekend and I decided this town needs an art drop. Tomorrow morning I'll hide THIS drawing somewhere down town then post the hint on Instagram.
Not in Denver but know someone who lives here? Tag them in this post so they know about the art drop. Ok, that's it, good luck tomorrow!

Aaaand! Announcing the winner to this weekend's birthday give-away: @kryzzalia! You win the book and other goodies! Email me your address and I'll ship those out to you this week.

Again thanks everyone for all the birthday wishes, likes, comments, and follows. You guys are the best.
Oh! And head over to snapchat to see this drawing happen before your very eyes: mrjakeparker

jakeparker Just wanted to say thanks for all the comments, love, and birthday wishes yesterday!! I expected a lot of you would say you liked the Star Wars stuff the best, but I was surprised at how much Balderben love there was!

In honor of that here's a sneak peak of things to come with Baldy. I talk more about it over on snapchat, so add me: mrjakeparker if you want to hear about that and get a sneak peak of the book.

Thanks again everyone! Again I'll announce the winner on Monday.

jakeparker My birthday is this weekend and I thought it's time I did another birthday giveaway.
The winner gets a mystery package full of a bunch of stuff from my shop, including one of the last copies of DRAWINGS I! (I found little stash of four of them in the back of my studio !) Here's how to enter. A random winner will be picked who does one or all of these things. (The more you do the better your odds.) 1) Leave a comment telling me your favorite drawing from the last 12 months.
2) Tag a friend in your comment.
3) Repost this picture on your own account and tag me in your post.

I'll announce the winner Monday morning! Good luck and thanks to all of you who've followed, liked, and commented this last year. It's been super encouraging for me. I love you people!

jakeparker In January of 2014 I posted that my goal for that year was to get a children's book made with my Robot and Sparrow story.
I'm here to report that 16 months later I got a book deal! It will be published as Little Bot & Sparrow in a two-book deal with Roaring Brook Press! Publication is in Fall 2016.
I'm so excited! Big thanks to my agent for negotiating the deal and to my editor Connie Hsu who's been so great to work with so far.
Just a little reminder that even if you don't quite accomplish your goals in the timeline you set for yourself, never give up on them.
