Completing a major run with a set of wood panels has become tradition, as has our yearly homage to the legal beauty that is Cannabis!
A very full year. All that remains is to open up our drawers and dish out our love! (eh.. I'll come back and reword that later)
We built our new 400 sq. foot workshop and rebuilt every piece of printing equipment inside of it, plus another connected 100sq. foot "dirty" shop for frame making and other dusty custom woodwork and molding. All by February or so! We built our third and fourth convention set-ups, and believe me we'll have Version 6.0 by whatever the next con. (Rose City? ECCC? Stay tuned!)
But mostly we printed a TON of original artwork. What's left of which we now intend to make available online! Over the next few weeks we will be stocking up our stores on Ebay and here on the website. There will be tons of surprises and artist proofs and secret tubes, and everyone will get a fucking pony! (...in the form of, like, probably, a bonus handbill or mini-poster)
So cheers, get ready, and start 2018 with some blazing hot handmade wall art!
EJR & Lisa
Print print print!

HER HIGHNESS print run is complete and sales have begun with a frenzy! This is our most original and elaborate piece to date, and supplies are limited AF! Get her!
DRUNKEN MASTER is currently on the print table! This is a 12x24" banner piece (or an 18x24" poster for the few we leave the handbills attached to) that is NOTHING BUT KICKASS!
WHAT'S NEXT? A bloody ton! We have some exciting new partnerships forming with local businesses to create custom event posters for bands and films we love (coughSTARWARScough) plus wonderful things like weed! (explains the coughing)
I know most of you are just imaginary figments, but pay attention to this space anyway, because cool shit is happening.
For the next 7 days we will be auctioning off one of every print that Happyface Empire has ever printed on eBay to help pay for unforeseen surgery needed on our puppy. We will also be donating 10% of all proceeds to Greenhill Animal Shelter. Just search on eBay for listings with "Toki Aid!"
Timing is everything.
Our new shop went lights-on today, and we'll be printing by the end of the month. Cheers to you, true believers!
HAPPYFACE EMPIRE slays at NORCAL Tattoo and Music Fest! Great new friends, long hours, driving safely, then drinking Coldcock herbal whiskey and catching bits of The Athiarchists, plus road food! Urp!
NEW PRINTS! We are just catching up, but we have a TON of crazy awesome new limited-run prints for sale! A-Team, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and even a slightly Star Wars mini! Plus a bunch more, so keep an eye on our store! Pics incoming!
FAR REACHES! Just an aside, we shipped our first posters to Denmark this week!
NEW SHOP! The biggerest news might just be that we are now shifting gears for a couple months to focus on building our NEW WORKSHOP from the ground up! That's right, though there will be a lull in new art for a short time, when that is over we will be set up to ROCK!
So keep your eyes peeled, loyal nobodies!
Finishing a really sweet run of our new piece, Firebirds!
Numbering and signing soon, then get ready to grab one!
We've got Goonies and Deadpool prints shipping out to the general public! Get 'em before they go
If you sniff REAL hard, you might just catch a whiff of the exciting things coming in the new year!
But for you future-types out there reading this, here are the most pertinent changes in my life:
My graphic novel EXQUISITE AMERICAN BULL$HIT was cleared by the publisher yesterday, and submitted to digital assisted-read as well. Physical copies for sale within a month.
I'm working professionally as an artist for a notorious local print shop.
Shit, you already know the rest. You are from the future! So that's it.
This page will be used for important updates and occasional ruminations. At the moment of this writing I have a 120 square foot mural going up during an art event in one week, so I'm not going to piffle around with mindless blather!
