Royal Flush Book Six!

Hey everyone,
It's been a while since my last post, but that doesn't mean I've been slacking.

I recently had the privilege of collaborating with Josh Bernstein (aka Bootsy Rizzak) on an illustration for the "New Blood" page in the latest Royal Flush Book 6. I feel truly honored to have been able to contribute to such an amazing publication who's pages are graced with the hard work of so many great art heros of mine. This book is not only funny, smart and informative, but it's jammed with top-notch art work from cover to cover!

Just in time for the holiday... GET YOUR COPY HERE!!!

Easily the best Royal Flush book to date by a landslide, Book Six boasts an exclusive cover story with Playboy's Hugh Hefner, including first-time-seen comics he drew over 60 years ago.

But that's not all! there's even more!
With killer interviews with and articles on Joan Jett, Ted Nugent, Basil Gogos, Leslie Nielsen, Hispanic Batman, Alice Cooper, Harvey Pekar, Jack Kirby, Frank Zappa, Dethklok, Jim Gaffigan, Brian Posehn, Jeffrey Ross, Danny Trejo, Jenna Jameson and 112 pages of comics, commentary and calamity!

The def-defying Hugh Hefner cover portrait was exquisitely painted by Robin Eley. The eye-gouging Joan Jett cover was illustrated by Bootsy Rizzak.

In honor of Mr. Hefner we have included 2 Bonus fold-out centerfolds. Each featuring sexy ladies, famed underground artists Paul Pope & Brian Ewing went to town on these two posters that will adorn your walls for years.

Speaking of amazing art and talented folk, This book also features the work of so many talents, it's shocking!!
