jakeparker When I was a kid, LEGO castle, city, and space minifigs didn't quite cut it for my imagination so I would customize them into the characters I wanted to play with. I made all the batman characters with markers, little cut out batman symbols and tape. But the main hero for most adventures was Blue Spaceman who had a robot sidekick and was being chased by a dark alien spaceman who was all black.

Now my adventures play out on the drawn page, but seeing my own boys getting lost in LEGO reminded me of my old adventures as a kid. So for fun I made a custom minifig of my character Skull Chaser. I think he would've fit right in with Blue Spaceman and Robot.

jakeparker "You are who you choose to be." I made a print of my Iron Giant drawing. I'll be selling them at my table at the Salt Lake Comic Con, but if you can't make it to the show they are available in my shop. Link is in my profile.

Also, the design duel between Dave from @statelytype and myself is not over. The voting for which shirt design you want printed is going on over at the Stately Type IG account until midnight on Saturday. Go vote in the comments and tell him which Mars shirt you want to cover YOUR torso

jakeparker Mars Tee Design 3!

500+ years from now when earthlings have a foothold on Mars I hope we're not fighting over it and are instead seeing who can jump the farthest in its low gravity.

If you like it go vote by commenting on it at @statelytype!

I've been looking at 70s and 80s rock band logos and I thought it'd be cool to go that direction.

jakeparker Mars Tee Design 1!

In the future what would a minor league baseball team on Mars call themselves? The Robots of course! (Or maybe the rovers)

I was pretty inspired by Dave's (@statelytype) first shirt design he threw down and wanted to riff on that.

Ok, new design tomorrow!

jakeparker I've been challenged to a design duel with Dave Lesue from @statelytype this week!

The challenge is pretty simple, we both go head to head designing three t-shirts each. Our followers vote on which t-shirt design they like best and then the winner gets printed and sold at statelytype.com

The subject matter? MARS.
I accept your challenge Dave! Bring it on! #STmarsweek #STdesignduel

jakeparker I'm doing a new class for SVSlearn.com in a couple of weeks called Drawing Robots and Machinery. 
If you’ve ever wanted to know my techniques, thought process, and secrets to drawing believable tech you need this class.

At two hours long I’ll go over the 4 principles of designing machinery and how to apply this to robots, vehicles, devices, and buildings.

If you want to participate in the live online class I only have a few slots available, otherwise you can get a streaming or download version of the class. Go here to order it: www.svslearn.com 2w

jakeparker All right artists I'm calling you to action. September 2nd is
WORLD ART DROP DAY!

I had such a good time with my art drops this summer that I'm calling ALL artists EVERYWHERE to drop a piece of art in your city or town.
The world needs this right now. We need to feel a little more connection to each other and there's nothing like the bond two random strangers can make through the act of creating and giving.

Details on how to participate are posted here: mrjakeparker.com/art-drop-day

September 2nd let's connect the whole planet with art!

jakeparker The LAST Art Drop! Number 18

City: Vail, Colorado
Hint: My friend Pazzo told me this place has the best pizza in Vail Villiage.

This has been so much fun! Congrats to everyone who got a piece of art. Every piece has been claimed (except for Wyoming, no word from anyone on that one). Can't wait to do this again on my next trip! (Heads up Minnesota)
