it has been a few months (okay, maybe about nineteen of them) but five new characters are now available! the working class skin, juggalo clown, crunkcore kid, skramz revivalist and indie jesus are now available for you to poke fun at! Please tweet the shit out of this on twitter / facebook!

Please dig the story on digg!

i've also launched a merch store for yourscenesucks, featuring some new and old designs that people have been requesting. all tees printed on american apparel, some hoodies and track jackets are available as well, check it out!

in related news, i launched my new line of tees @ www.fullbleed.org, eight new tees all available on american apparel. i also printed up some silkscreened posters, check em out!

september 18th, 2008

however, i have been approached by a number of people who have wanted an illustration of them done in a style like the format at yourscenesucks.com, so i figure i'll give it a shot.

head over to the portraits page for all the information including how you can be featured here on this site! and check out another new addition, my scene sucks, where you can have your portrait featured, the first member of the roster is joe lifetime, check it out!

aw, what the heck, i decided to put up the other four scenesters! i figure if people are going to buy the book, they are going to buy it regardless if they want to see the other four or not. so with that being said, enjoy the black metal knight, up the punx, rudy boy and brootal kid! i'd rather have thousands of people see em and have a laugh than have a couple hundred pay to see em. and hey, if you like em, check out the book (looks like it is the top seller on blurb at the moment) or fullbleed (which has nine new tees!)

an update?!?

what better day than halloween to preview 8 kids who play dressup everyday of their lives? 8 new scenester should be available later this month along with your scene sucks, the book. stay tuned!

april 23rd, 2007

"everybody hurts" comes out tomorrow!

i did over 100 illustrations for a book being published by harper collins and it comes out tomorrow! the book is written by trevor kelley and leslie simon, both contributors to alternative press as well as several other music relation publications. the book is billed as "an essential guide to emo culture" so who better to illustrate it than me?

i'm pretty happy with how everything came out so be sure to pick it up tomorrow everywhere! (or click here to order it on amazon)

oh yeah, i also have five new scenesters ready to go! hold tight!

ps. i will NOT be creating a "prep" character, some of you kids just don't get it.

april 5th, 2007

holy crap, the site has been getting a ton of traffic lately! thanks to my homeboy adam lazarra of taking back sunday for mentioning the site not only in his blog, but also onstage in front of thousands of kids, crazy!

more scenesters are going to be added soon, with a billion more on the way, nobody is safe! as always, if there is anyone you want to see profiled be sure to email me! (no, i won't make a profile for a mid 20's pretentious illustrator who is burnt out on the scene)

be sure to add yourscenesucks on myspace!

march 28th, 2007

three years or so in the making and the site is finally live!  you'd think after all these years i'd get tired of making fun of the scenesters but the sad truth is they get worse every year! who would have ever thought that the halloweencore goth trend would catch on so fast?

i intend on adding new characters every once in awhile so be sure to check back every so often! if there are any characters or genres you would like to see added feel free to email me! (and yes, black metal dude is in the works)

it would be awesome if you could take two seconds and digg this! get yourscenesucks.com on the front page!

be sure to read the mailbag, there are some absolute gems in there from the past couple years.

last but not least, add yourscenesucks.com to your friends on myspace! head over to myspace.com/yourscenesucksdotcom

ps. i launched my new line of tees at fullbleed.org, go check em out!
