Total Ink Magazine is only published per order made, so the price for their issues can be a bit much for all the right reasons (saves trees!); the only way I was able to justify the purchase without guilt is that I am extremely picky about Chester’s photoshoots (I hate it when they pose him with awkward arm positions or screaming) and I was originally going to head to Hawaii to see them- needed something awesome to get signed (; So here are the scans- enjoy!

Giant Robot hosted a “Year of the Snake” art show this year, which included a piece by Mr. Hahn himself. The real perk for me, though, was when I caught sight of Heidi’s name in the list of artists.
