"Now here’s where I’m going to alienate everyone in the room. Television is bad for creativity. So is music. Not small ‘b’ bad. Capital ‘b’ Bad. A professional golfer does not catch up on the Young and the Restless while he walks up to the fairway to take his second shot. Football players on the sidelines are not listening to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon on their walkmans. A concert pianist does not listen to Terminator 2 while he practises a concerto. If you would even suggest such a thing to any of these individuals they would tell you that you’re two fries short of a happy meal. Divided focus is no focus. All of you disagree with me but that’s okay, because I’m right and you’re wrong. Divided focus is no focus. Focus precludes both companionship and the illusion of companionship. Isolation, silence and the training of all of your faculties so that all that exists for you is the feel of the pencil or the pen, the subtleties of pressure of that pencil point or that pen point, to the exclusion of all other stimuli, is a universally ignored but self-evident route to improvement. It’s not easy at first. Nothing worthwhile is ever easy at first."
One Percent Press is very happy to announce that we’ll be publishing the translated version of Max de Radigues' L’Age Dur, now titled Rough Age in English. This 128 page book will be debuting at SPX in September (and shortly after online.)
We can’t wait for lots of new people to be able to read this awesome book!
remake of a comic from a year ago about a little ghost that comes out of a kid’s body to explore! i really just wanted to make something simple and nice ╲ʕ·ᴥ· ╲ʔ
Catalogs are garbage. We try to make ours only half garbage by throwing free posters from our favorite artist friends on the back.
Two designs this time around from our very favorites right now; “All Cats Are Beautiful” by Ben Passmore and a magical river scene by Lindsay Watson.
These are free with mail-order, in person, or just ask for one.
Don’t tell anyone, the catalog-sides list a few things we haven’t announced yet.
I played around with a Cintiq for the first time the other day. I’m not quite able to get the same strokes as I can with a brush, but I can see coloring and re-draws/editing being a lot easier than on my regular tablet. Anyway, here’s a little poster I made.

I had a bad anxiety bout so I drew that motherfucker into submission. Sometimes I still gotta remind my head who’s boss.
Starting tomorrow! Booth 5250 - Mr Toast! I’ve got Wes Anderson drawings and will draw 1000 crayon portraits! Spread the word! #sdcc2014 #mrtoast #toddbot #wesanderson
