My Playing Card 3 of Clubs

I can't tell you how happy I am to be part of's 3rd set of playing cards. I knew what I wanted to do once I got selected (3 of clubs was my first choice), but getting that very idea out of my head was very difficult (a surly dude holding 3 bats). Every initial sketch turned out wrong. Then I found this picture of Mickey Mantle at Corbis, and using that as reference, I was able to take off from there.

Clay (the genius behind got back from SXSW a couple of days ago and now has 'em available for purchase! It's a great stocking stuffer – I can vouch for decks 1 and 2 – and all the cash goes toward the site, a place which has been a total boon to my still fledgling illustration and design career.'s the entire set. If you want, you can buy an uncut sheet, but hurry, they tend to go fast!

Yo...the previously mentioned Double Bacon Genius Burger mixtape by John Smith is now available in the Peanuts and Corn online store. If you ain't livin' in Peg City, you no longer have an excuse to not have one. Get busy!

Hey! Here's a clip of RRC's former head of the arts department reading the Newshour Update!
Gee, he seems rather blasé about it, eh?
