Here we have another amazing pair of art brothers, Thomas Herpich and Peter Herpich. They both create some wholly original work– drawings, paintings and comics. Pictured here, we have a drawing from Tom on the left and a painting from Peter on the right.
Esao has been a Meathaus contributor since the beginning of time. His personal site is a marvel of flash programming and his work just as tasty. Been there before? Well come back again and visit again “for the first time”. Ah memories.
James Jean recently started attending weekly life drawing sessions and has been posting the results on one of his sites, Process Recess. Additionally, he goes into descriptive details about some of his latest illustrations and the process he used to create them, and posts old work from his student days to provide context for the progress in his work. It is like a James Jean retrospective in the making!
Besides the fact one of the dudes in Cause co-Motion! happens to be an old, old, friend of the Meathaus, a bandmate in Ancient Justice, and a coconspirator of the practically defunct but too funky Beard Records, well….. besides that fact, the Cause co-Motion! just happens to be such an amazing band that it would deserve a post here and much of you giving a listen anyways.
Based in NYC, they have a new 7″ four song EP put out by Kevin over at What’s Your Rupture that has been seeing play even out here in old Los Angeles, on the baddest ass of stations, KXLU, which you can stream to where ever you are in the world.
Let’s start off the Monday with a new awesome link. Tomer and Asaf Hanuka have a recently new site up called Tropical Toxic in which they post their latest illustrations that they produce for their global array of high profile clients. It’s not just a glorified portfolio site, each Hanuka describes his piece in detail and the process he used to arrive at the final result. It is an excellent window into the world of the pro illustrator(s).
From Amid Amidi at Cartoon Brew:
… I received my copy of GO FOR THE GOLD: A MEATHAUS SKETCHBOOK when I got back from Ottawa and I’ve been completely inspired over the past couple days … [Go For The Gold! brings] together an incredible array of names from the illustration and animation worlds … The whole thing totals 218 black-&-white pages, and sells for a quite affordable $12.95. You will not find a better bargain around. It’s printed on-demand by Lulu.com, and the print quality rivals any printed book to be found at the bookstore. Note: I was offered a complimentary copy, but insisted on paying because I want to encourage quality artist-driven projects, and GO FOR THE GOLD is a project most worthy of support.
From “FFWD: Calgary’s News and Entertainment Weekly, Web Watch by Courtney Thompson”:
Meathaus (meathaus.com) is an artists’ collective born out of New York’s School of Visual Arts, including such illustrious members as James Jean, Jim Campbell and Tomer Hanuka. The group has published seven anthology comic books, which are available on its website along with prints, music and T-shirts. The Go for the Gold Meathaus sketchbook is not to be missed – it’s a gift so good you’ll want to keep it for yourself.

Ok, new front page for Meathaus.com. We axed the Meat Log news. Moved the Latest Comics over there —> as well as the Latest Features. And by making their thumbnails smaller, we fit more of them in there.
This is the new thing, the blog. I hear these things are the rage with all the kids out there. We will be posting new art, links and news here whenever we can. You know, kind of like the Meat Log was, but with larger pixel dimensions. And oh yeah, above is a little doodle I was playing with and colored.
