My buddy Dan Mills is an AMAZING musician, and one I love collaborating with (see my cover for his single, “Bernadette”). I’m going to be designing some merch for him in the coming months, but here’s a little sample to kick things off: an illustration based on some of his lyrics from The Good Son; "You talk a real good game little girl/You’re not getting nothing from me". 
Dan talks about our collab and more over at his blog! There are also downloadable wallpapers of this image, so check it out!

Friends! I am trying to sell my remaining “Too Much Coffee” screen prints to help cover the cost of a nerve test I need done to my wrists. Cost for the prints is $30, plus shipping and handling. Thanks to a lot of generous people both buying prints and spreading the word, I was able to sell half of them already! There are now 10 prints remaining. 

A little bit more about your new inky friends: these are hand-printed silk screens, 18” x 24” on good quality white paper. All are signed, numbered, and dated by yours truly! They will be packed in sturdy white tubes and sent wherever you please! I can accept Paypal and Venmo. 

tl/dr I just want a print: please e-mail me at carly.monardo[at]gmail.com!

Thank you so much, guys 

Guys, it’s been a frustrating/stressful/blah couple of weeks, I have to tell you. Sometimes you just gotta pick up your beans and keep rolling.
I made this little doodle to promote two shows I’m going to be in tonight! The first is "Butter-Boat" at Triple Crown Ale House (basement stage) from 9:30pm-11:00pm. The second is The Clubhouse at Magnet Theater, 11:30pm! All are welcome :)

I had fun designing this minimalist poster for an upcoming improv show! I also get to be in the show, so this has been pretty much WIN/WIN.

Wind Waker warm-up! Haven’t done fan-art in ages. 
I’m very happy to share the t-shirt I designed for The Truth! I love these guys and the work they do! This shirt is part of a pledge drive and can be yours with a donation of $50 or more! Please consider donating to help them produce a second season of their incredible podcast!

Yeah, hm, not sure what to do about that…
Doing some branding for a new improv showcase I’m putting up. Got to draw some choppy ocean waves, which was really fun!
