Art Books Comics Meathaus

Credit where it’s due: Chris McDonnell

Hello internet, Jay Sacher here again. As the day-to-day web-overlord for Meathaus, our particular friend Chris McD is obviously far too polite to blog about his own accomplishments and considerable talents, but since Chris and familia are currently lost somewhere in the Bermuda Triangle, I figured I’d gush a little about the man behind the curtain.

Chris is pure comic gold, both in a drawing-actual-comics way and in a making-you-laugh-way. check out his webspace and blog to see what he’s been up to.

I might be biased, since it’s a project I’m editing for Chronicle Books, but I especially enjoy Chris’ process work for his upcoming doodle/gag project, Sasquatch’s Big, Hairy Drawing Book. Check out the insane amount of cover designs we forced him to whip up…ha! Work harder!

And let’s not forget all the killer animation and character design he’s done for shows like Tim and Eric and Portlandia.

Finally, as the men and women of Meathaus have spread across the globe, Chris has continued the publishing arm of MH, with our sketchbook series, Go For the Gold. Hats off, amigo.

steve, yeah, we (chris and i) liked that first cover a lot as well. hopefully where we ended up still captures the spirit of what we were going for.
