Election season already?


The start of a new campaign cycle means new campaign stickers. Get a set of five 7” x 3” McCoy 2016 stickers in my online store.

A story from the 2012 election: my friend since elementary school, Brian Laing (now a doctor and huge ACA proponent), had been trying to gather volunteers for a phone bank in Santa Monica, to call up voters a few days before the election to make sure they knew their correct polling place, etc. I hemmed and hawed, and on the Sunday I said I might come Brian called me up. “So are you heading over?”

“Probably later, still out running errands.”

“Well Sam Waterston is here helping out.” And then Sam happened to walk by so Brian handed off his phone.

“Brandon,” Sam Waterston said to me, “Get your butt down here and help out!”

He is The Doctor



Every year at Comic-con, people ask, “Do you have any Doctor Who stuff?” Well I did it, just for you guys! America’s greatest hero “mashed up” with Britain’s favorite Time Lord! See them all here. You can also get prints, a poster, or own an original (this is a rare chance to own a Brandon Bird painting for a fraction of their usual cost… the only catch is that they’re paintings of Shia LaBeouf).

Special Edition: NYC

This weekend! I’ll be a guest at Special Edition NYC, an offshoot of the New York Comic Con devoted to art and comic creators (basically, a comic con without the giant ads for movies and video games). Find me in artist alley at table K14. Topatoco will also have a separate booth at 914.

Fever Dream (Bald Man in Ecstasy)


People are always asking me, “Brandon, when are you going to team-up with Dr. Crusher?” Well, the wait is over! This image was created for a fundraiser in support of Gates McFadden’s experimental theater lab on February 11 (read more about the event here). Gates has offered to sign a small number of prints, which you can pre-order in my store.

Barry!




This is a very belated wedding gift for Jeffrey and Holly, who run Topatoco. Way back at Calgary Expo Holly mentioned, “I kind of want to get Jeffrey a velvet painting of Barry from Storage Wars,” and I was like, “Dude, I’ll do it, that’s totally something I should have already made.” I even had my sometimes-assistant Lacy build and stretch a black velvet surface, but as it turns out, working on velvet is incredibly hard. So I made this delicate oil painting instead. Prints here.

A Hero Rides Forth



The 2014 T-mas cards are here! The inspiration for this design comes from a set of Western-themed Christmas cards by the painter Jack Sorenson purchased in an Oregon truck stop during Sears Trip 2013. I discuss the origins of T-mas on my pal Tony Thaxton’s year-round Christmas podcast, Feliz Navipod.
