Kentucky Kaiju Pre-Order & Events

It's official, Kentucky Kaiju is set to release on October 18th!!! 
Pre-orders are now available through Apex Book Company. Just go to where you can snag your very own copy. All pre-orders will be signed by the whole KY Kaiju crew. Here's a little blurb on what you'll be expecting to find:

Kentucky Kaiju is the ultimate field guide to the kaiju of the bluegrass state. From 29 foot #beavers roaming the forests of Black Gold, KY, to thunderous trees walking Thousandsticks, to a gigantic robot that fell from another galaxy to Future City, KY, this book has it all. Though photographic evidence of kaiju is rare, each one presented in this guide has been artistically rendered by Justin Stewart and Tressina Bowling, with descriptions of their creation, location, and proclivity to violence penned by Shawn Pryor.

Kentucky Kaiju lets you travel deep into the hills of Kentucky and uncover all of its monsters without ever leaving the safety of your home. 


Our main book release event will be held at Joseph Beth Booksellers on October 21st at 7:00pm. Be sure to come by for meet and greet and to get a copy of your own! Here's a link to the Facebook event

Kaiju Update and Upcoming Cons

Greetings!!! I've been hammering away at the illustrations for Kentucky Kaiju....

And I'm happy to say I'm nearly finished...

It's been quite a journey and although it's been hard work, I couldn't have asked for better partners in crime than Justin Stewart and Shawn Pryor. It's truly a treat to work with friends. 
Justin and I will be sharing a table at the upcoming Scarefest Convention here in Lexington, KY and we hope to have samples of the Kentucky Kaiju book with us. We'll also of course have all the originals on display for you gandering pleasure. 
As far as other conventions, I've got two others I'll be attending for 2016. Up first is Baltimore Comic Con on September 2-4! Then on to Cincinnati Comic Expo September 23-25. I'm currently taking pre-showing commissions for BOTH. 
 Email me at if you're interested. I say it every time, but it's worth repeating...pre-commissions are the best way to snag that one of a kind piece you're looking to get. Not only can I take my time on the piece but it ensures you get it while at the show. So don't delay!

Kentucky Kaiju

For those of you who follow me on social media you've probably noticed I've been focusing on very specific illustrations lately. I'm currently working on a book coming out in October through Apex Publishing. Along with artist Justin Stewart and author Shawn Pryor, we're working to create Kentucky's first comprehensive field guide to the Kaiju that inhabit it. Here's a few peeks at some of the creatures I've been working on!

OK, so that'll be it for now! I'll post more updates about the book's progress as well as its release. In the meantime please be sure to follow Justin Stewart on Twitter @justin3000 and Shawn Pryor @shawnrpryor for more goodness.
