An endless cycle that begins and ends where it began.
#DailyColorBlock, but really more like… seasonal color block. Also, I guess I don’t really dress seasonally. And I wear those shorts, like, a lot. I change the tights, though. Promise.
I AM AN ADULT.

A couple friends of mine are serious home brewers, on the road to making their brewing hobby (which they already take really seriously) into a viable line of amazing beer.
I can’t even tell you guys how good they are. They’ve been brewing for a long time, and— without bias— these are some of my favorite beers I’ve ever had.
I’m doing their graphic design, so here are some of the things they’ll have ready for sampling / tapping at the upcoming WYES New Orleans beer tasting.
George’s is named for their dog, who is pictured on the labels. I was really happy to do this project, and I even got the honor of naming one of them, the molasses ale, Slow Ride. (FOGHAT, BABY.)

Speed drawing video!
Andre Williams makes everything fun.
ETA: Video should be playable now. Thanks a bunch, YouTube.
Krista: Can you do a quick graphic for my wine classes? I was thinking like a chalk board with wine glass + Italy = a happy face or something. …I also feel that maybe the above post could possibly be used in a graphic design mockumentary. And you are Bob Balaban. …And I am Jennifer Coolidge.
Me: Kristapher Guest.
Just a quick scribble to tell you about the wine classes at Otto Enoteca Pizzeria. My witty and wonderful sister, Krista, is their wine director, and she is Very Serious About Wine. So you if you are in the NY area, you should check it out and say hello.
Another one from Cup O’ Doodle.
WEEKEND IS COMING.
Dudebros are hard to draw. Also, animals. Also, everything. :|
I mean, whatever, y’all. I bet Anne Hathaway is super nice and would come over to your house to bake cookies and stuff, if you let her.
Done with Kyle Webster’s Ultimate pastel brush, a Thing I now love a whole lot.
Kate Vee’s drawings delve into video games, Greek mythology, fairy tales and modern moments, and find the lovely ladies within. Whether she’s drawing a woman having a not-so-ladylike moment (like over that oh-too-familiar puddle of post-celebratory puke) or illustrating the goddesses of Greek theater, she creates expressive figures who often show a touch of mischief.
Vee is a Louisiana-based graphic designer with a flair for color and for melding the old and the new. It’s especially refreshing, after seeing so many Art Nouveau portraits flung across the Internet, to see that Vee can take her Art Nouveau influences and use the for her own purposes, whether she uses jewelry-style patterns for objects in the background, or sweeping black lines to outline her subjects.
ComicsAlliance featured some of my drawings this weekend! That’s so cool, and it was a really nice surprise.
They delved way, way back into my archives for some of these, so it was neat for me, at least, to see how far I’ve come in the past couple of years. The 2010 / monster birthing one in particular made me laugh so much, because what the fuck. Bahah. Also, that image was done before I got a Wacom tablet, and many of the rest were done while I was still getting used to working with a tablet.
I can actually feel myself getting better at this stuff with every drawing, and working on a laptop touch pad, pixel by pixel, seems totally inconceivable to me now.
Anyway, thanks for the trip down memory lane! It always makes me giddy and thankful to see stuff like this pop around the internet, and I think this is the nicest write up I’ve ever gotten.
