Imaginary Friends: A Field Guide

ifbookcover640On a crisp November morning in 1889, our world was transformed with the appearance of a dimensional rift behind the sleepy cottage of Conrad Rookwood Corrigan. The mysterious world populated by Imaginary Friends was revealed and humankind would never be the same.

Imaginary Friends: A Cross-Dimensional Field Guide introduces the basics of this monumental event with facts and details of the discovery, character studies, the formation of an exploration team and even pop culture influences.

This 31 page pamphlet book written and illustrated by Chet Phillips focuses on the magical revelations gathered from the “Age of Imagined Enlightenment.”

“A must read for anyone interested in the future of cross-dimensional alliances.”
— Argus Pringlesheet

“The quintessential introductory guide for learning about Imaginary Friends.”
— Primble Quackenwise

Bob’s Burgers Hawk & Chick Variant

HawkChickSigning1A very special variant of my “Hawk and Chick: Monster Slayers” print is now available through Gallery 1988. This limited edition of 25 includes the signatures of Keisuke Hoashi and Suzy Nakamura, the voice actors of Hawk and Chick.

Keisuke and Suzy were so gracious to join in on this fun and I owe a huge debt of thanks to them both. The event couldn’t have happened without the efforts of fellow artist Eugene Kaik, who also created a wonderful Hawk and Chick variant the actors signed. Thanks also to Jensen Karp and Amber of Gallery 1988 and the folks at Bob’s Burgers for making it a reality.
