The awesome webcomic collective I belong to, SpiderForest, is Kickstarting a 100+ page comic anthology! It includes a 4-page Cooties story by yours truly, and the $40.00 tier comes with a sketch card by me of a character of your choice! Go back this project here.
You can also contribute a small amount to show support even if you don’t want the book. Thanks!
I’ve been keeping up with my sketch card habit; I love being able to take a few minutes one or two nights a week and doodle a fun character. I’ve also been trying to come up with ways to make each drawing become a source of passive income, instead of just selling the drawing at the next comic convention or my Etsy shop and having it vanish.
My latest attempt at this is…stickers! I’ll be tabling at Salt Lake Gaming Con in July (more info on that soon), and I thought that would be a good place to try selling sticker sheets of some video game characters. I got these small batches from stickermule, and I think they turned out pretty good! I really hope this becomes a good way to do something additional with my sketch cards.
You can see all of my doodles over on my Instagram.

The past few months doing freelance work has given me enough material to finally put up a portfolio website. Go check out nickperkinsart.com and have a look!
Just felt like doing a sketch of some of my favorite Jimmy Fallon silliness:
I’ve added a new print to my Nerdy Storybook Covers series:
This is based on one of my favorite books to read to my sons when they were little, No, David! It might be a little too gruesome, but there might be an audience for it. We’ll see. I hope to have some for sale if I get approved for a table at FanX in March (crossing fingers).
I think spring needs to come the day after Christmas, but no, we have to wait for 2-3 more months for the cold and depression to beat us down for a while so we can appreciate springtime or something.
Anyway, last week I fought back by drawing some ice and cold-based characters:
Elsa because Duh
Cute lil Jack Frost
And Killer Frost because The Flash is the best comic book show on TV right now.
Hope you all can stick it out through the rest of winter, unless you live in Hawaii or California because I hate you.

I recently got some semi-steady freelance work illustrating a High School Spanish textbook. Fun stuff!
