David James Keaton is a Gorilla

Ever since Mr Keaton’s book, the Last Projector has come out he’s made a number of references to our time together at Thackeray’s Books and how, at times, I would draw him as a gorilla. So to celebrate winning This Is Horror’s 2014 Best Cover of the Year Award it seemed appropriate to dig up those sketches and post them for your… enjoyment? Sure. We’ll go with enjoyment. Here’s two sketches of David as a gorilla, and a multipage Empire Strikes Back homage that captures our relationship.

Happy Birthday, Dave!

A sketch of @davewheeler‘s favorite wrestler. Now if I can only get @Christian4Peeps to send him a personalized (belated) birthday greeting. That would be rad. #peeps

Voting is more than your right, it’s your responsibility

So head over to This is Horror and vote. Specifically, it would be great if you voted for The Last Projector in the category of Book Cover of the Year designed and illustrated by yours truly and written by talking gorilla and pop culture encyclopedia, David James Keaton. Print

It’s already won Dark Corners’ 2014 Golden Goodis Award  for best Book Cover and it would be great to keep that train rolling. Thanks for your support!
