The 2089 line has hit the stores and is now available anyplace DKNY and DKNY Jeans clothing are sold. Internationally, an alternate 2089 line is available through Club 21 and features additional style and prints not seen in the North American 2089 line, including a pair of black jeans with a silkscreened grasshopper print. I did four window displays for four separate Asian markets (Hong Kong, Shanghai, Seoul, and Macau), as well as a lot of press here in the US.
The official 2089 mini-site can be found here. If you can't get to a retail spot to check out the line, you can always view (and purchase) items here-- plus see some of the sketchbook ramp-ups for the line and take a look at some of the artwork by other artists which inspired the line.
Outside of that, I've been working almost exclusively on my upcoming comics projects Battling Boy for First Second and Psychenaut for Dargaud, both of which have big deadlines this season.

People have asked, and it's been made so. Kid Robot has just made The Masked Karimbah available online. We did a limited run of 300 sets, and most are gone. This is hopefully good news for anybody who asked about it but couldn't get to Comic Con International this summer to grab one for themselves. The set also includes a clear vinyl sticker sheet with a bunch of Karimbah stickers and an exclusive Masked Karimbah comic book written and drawn by Your Lad. It makes a ridiculous coffee table piece which is guarenteed to spark a weird conversation with houseguests. If nothing else, the doggie is the size of a real Boston terrier, and anatomically correct in the same way Barbie's boyfriend Ken is.
