Got asked by @bandainamcous to do some promo art for the awesome-looking new JRPG Ni no Kuni II (which drops here on March 23)!!! Figured that everyone else on this project would do cool battle scenes; So instead, we drew a quiet moment for the characters - dinner at a food stall in Goldpaw. Hit up youtube to find gameplay videos - it’s cool! . . . . #Level5 #JRPG #RPG #gaming #PS4 #Steam #PC #bandainamco #NinoKuni #gameplay

I think it’s really cool that you guys are still celebrating Valentine’s Day in LA when it’s already the 15th here in Tokyo. I think it’s cute. I really do. You guys, like, have your fun. We already did it, and now you’re just copying us, and it’s kinda sad, but it’s okay. Anyway, here’s a pin; It’s called “Tough Love.” It’s a heart.

Another week, another process video (this time with an unplanned kitten interruption): Our "Three Bears" print, with somewhat improved artwork, as printed by the lovely Melissa. 🐱🐻🐻🐻🤷‍♀️#littlefriendsofprocessvideos

Thank you all so much for another amazing year! You have no idea how much it means to us to be able to send out all these pieces of paper with cat drawings on them! (Okay, maybe you have some idea.) We’re not very good at being sentimental so: wishing you a pleasant upcoming business year and prosperous Q1 (or Q2, depending on how you personally define FY 2018) 🤝💋✨

Thanks to @thebirdmachine for curating the #staypositive show at @rotofugi and including us! We made a special black and metallic gold edition of our “Peace Flowers” print that’s only available at @rotofugi! Pick one up while you can!!! ✌️🌿🌸

PROCESS VIDEO TIME: This week, we're printing our "Papa Bear" print-- very appropriate for the season-- and sending you warm, cozy, winter holiday vibrations. ❄️☃️💨 #littlefriendsofprocessvideos

#Superdeluxe hung out with us in our studio while we printed our Sugar Shack print! We talked about stuff like making work for clients vs. making work for yourself and how everyone who’s into print design should take a silkscreen class. Have a sneaky peek and please don’t get too grossed out by actually hearing us talk 🙃 #littlefriendsofprocessvideos

Another week, another process video! This time, the supercharged, super-bright, candy-colored version of "Cat Racer" that we'll be bringing with us to all the winter fairs (check our bio for an updated list). Vrooooooom! 🚘🚘🚘🐱#littlefriendsofprocessvideos

HEY! Here's the process video for the special monoprint variant edition of the "Bookshelf" print we made at Syracuse University. TWO split fountains?! A special monoprint layer?! The help of awesome SU students?! Check, check, and check! We've only got a few of these left-- Jump on it! ❤️❤️❤️#littlefriendsofprocessvideos

Here's the process video for our new, sunset-looking edition of "Arcade Cats," available in our shop or IN PERSON at #Dcon (booth 211) in Pasadena this weekend (if you're so inclined). BEEP BOP BOOP ZAP! 🎮🐱🎮🐱🍎 #littlefriendsofprocessvideos

HEY! Our "Arcade Cats" print is back in a brand new colorway (giving off hell of port wine cheese spread vibes). Process video coming next week! Have a very happy #nationalcatday, which is distinct and different from #internationalcatday, but I don't need to tell you that.

Printing another fun personal commission, this time for @gemmagolland & @hugsparty of Colchester, UK! They visited us at our studio and they're great! Want us to make a print for you? DM me bro 👍👍👍😘🙃 #littlefriendsofprocessvideos

BOOGEDY BOO! Here's a process video of our Frances Glessner Lee exhibition poster for the Smithsonian. We had to print over 400 of these-- It was MURDER on my back. Afterward, we relaxed with a COLD CASE of beer. JOKES! 🎃👻🎃🔨🔪 #littlefriendsofprocessvideos

We designed (and printed) the exhibition poster for the truly fascinating "Murder is Her Hobby: Frances Glessner Lee and the Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death" exhibit at @americanartmuseum's Renwick Gallery! It's always an honor to work with the Smithsonian!

Here we are printing an edition with the students at Syracuse University-- The print is called "Bookshelf," and this is the regular edition. (A video with the crazy variant edition is coming up!) Thanks to Dusty at #lakeeffecteditions and all of the kids-- YOU THE BEST 👍👍👍❤️❤️❤️ #littlefriendsofprocessvideos

MEGA-THANKS to everyone at Syracuse University for making our week as visiting artists so much fun! We printed two editions (one normal stylee and one with TWO split fountains and a monoprint layer) and gave a lecture, but more importantly hung out in the studio with awesome people like @candicemalyn, @tarotakizawart, @art_by_nathan, @landoperkins (and others!) and had a really great time. @dustyherbig is the best, printmaking forever, etc. etc. #lakeeffecteditions (📷 by @candicemalyn)

Printing another fun personal commission, this time a dinosaur-themed wedding gift for a happy couple in Houston, TX. Best wishes to both of you! 🌺🎉 Want is to make something for you? Hit us up in our DMs! #littlefriendsofprocessvideos

HEY CHICAGO! We're at Winchester & Division at #renegadecraftfair all weekend! Roll through and say "Hey." We'll appreciate it!

Just HOW shiny is our "Cat Behind Plants" print (back in stock now, in its original 18x24" format)??? A photo doesn't do it justice! A boomerang is closer, but it's still even shinier than that! Now, I could mail you one so you could see it for yourself, but that would take $30 US, plus postage. WHAT?! You WOULD pay that? OH MY!

ROAR! This is our crying "Shut Up" tiger's more confident cousin. I mean, he's not that confident, just look at his eyes-- but he's not currently crying, and that's a start!
