This is a massive double issue (180+ pages!) with an insane number of talented artists, including some of my favorites like Zejian Shen, Niv Bavarsky, Renata Gąsiorowska, Inés Estrada, Andy Burkholder and many more.
If you get it, let me know what you think!

Mike Taylor, design for Happiness Comix, 2012, unknown medium
I chose this piece because it is apart of Happiness Comix, which is something that really inspires my own work. This piece is created with the use of ink and a form of color, which is unknown. The colors used help to further abstract this figure, adding to the overall composition. Also, the colors are used to add depth which is very prevalent in the bag.

Got my copy of Happiness 3 in the mail!!!! It’s def the best issue so far.. the printing is pretty nice and it even has a fancy color section with abstract art.
The comics were good too.. my favorites were by Garrett Young, Alabaster, Renata Gąsiorowska and Aaron shunga.
I submitted this 3 page teaser from Lapsos I-I because at the time Leah invited me to contribute it was the only thing I could think about.. wait actually I still think a lot about it.. gotta get started drawing the second issue!!!
this post is from last year but why not reblog it now :)
reminder there’s currently a big sale on all happiness items! get them here
YAY!!! They finally came and I forgot to check the mail all day!! This is the Happiness Comix stuff I found thanks to tumblr. Look! I even got a home made magnet and a sticker! It was hard to wait, but in the end, I have no problem with how long it took to arrive because this is DIY, unique, and just oozes passion about comix and support of underground art and the artists themselves. fux yea ♥ ♥ ♥
Happiness #2 + 3 managed to avoid being eaten by Japanese whales. Thankyou America. Excited to get another cassette player after destroying my last one.
If you are in the market for buying some art or have ever considered purchasing something from my store, now is the time to do so!
The next month is crunch time for me in scraping together $$$ for Happiness #4. I’ve almost saved up enough for printing costs, and my main concern now is saving enough to compensate all artists/writers not-too-shitily.
