Supanova books!!

Here are the books that I will have on offer this weekend at Supanova!:

House of Squid
by Peter Kozak, James Paterson, Curtis James Richardson Smith, Chris Voigt and Me!:



"Inside you will meet the strange, sometimes terrifying, always arousing denizens of the collective imagination of several devastatingly beautiful geniuses. 

They hail from all different walks of life; vigilante llama rustler (retired), groin thief, outlaw, private detective, macrobiologist, inanimate folding lawn chair, just to name a few. Within lie tales of mighty crustaceans, epic duck-human hybrids, crazed apes, masked men, unmasked men, men with two groins, men with swollen groins, not to mention the mysterious, sensual, terrible and ultimately alluring Pleasure Island... 

When you’re done reading, you may feel an irrepressible urge to go and wash yourself off. Fight it! Embrace the grease. Learn to live with it........ Only then will you truly be free to love."

Pick up this fine 112 page graphic novel for $20! *Not recommended for the kiddies*

The Book of Plump
by Peter Yong


"If you have a craving that can only be sated by looking at round, chubby, some would say “cute” characters; then this is the book for you!
Inside you will find bulging forms that will melt the sternest, most battle hardened heart!

Skillfully crafted by Australian artist Peter Yong, these drawings and renderings are a must have for any plump enthusiast." 

Yes, its the Plump Monday book :), however it has more than just the pictures featured in my Plump Monday Gallery! Pick it up for just 15 bucks!

Its Just Another Violent Friday
by Peter Yong


The book features all the Violent Friday's seen here, plus 15 pages of new violence and sketches from where it all began! The book is only 10 bucks! That's what I call money well spent!!

Sketched!
by Peter Yong

A selection of 46 pictures from my sketchbook both physical and digital from the past year. This little fellow is just $5 :)

Christopher Nolan- Dark Knight Returns



What if Christopher Nolan made the Dark Knight Returns? Maybe the power suit that he uses to beat up superman would look like this........

If you don't know what I'm talking about you gotta read The Dark Night Returns (one of my favs!) or check out this image:

Jim

This has been a long time coming, but I have finally cut this together!!
Its a Storyboard that I did earlier this year using what I learnt from Rad Sechrist class at CDA

Here is a little back story:

Jim is a fish monster who lives the depressing life as a nameless office employee. Things were not always this way, for Jim was once the most feared monster in the world!

After settling down and starting a family, Jim had to get a "real job" and settled into the office routine. As time went by he progressively lost the "fire" that made him once the "Baddest Being On The Planet".

Jims boss Frank, a keen trophy fisherman sees Jim as "The perfect catch" and has reserved a space for him on his secret trophy wall in his office.

After Frank makes Jim work late he confronts him in the carpark....... 


Huge thank you to Rad Sechrist for all the help and guidance!

What Have I Been Doing?

Here are a bunch of sketches that have been keeping me busy.
You can see more here: http://peteyong.tumblr.com/







The aim of these is to not get bogged down and just create! I also want to take this opportunity to draw things that I normally wouldn't.

Speed sketch

Tried a bunch of new things in this drawing.
Realised that drawing fast is good but thinking fast is much better :).
