BIG PIG INK, LLC was founded in 2014 by John & Heather Mueller. 

We created BIG PIG INK with the belief that people of all walks of life are at their best when they are truly independent. This means we steer the ship of our own little empire (be it ever so humble). Our goals are simple to build a sustainable business making the art and products that we love and want to share with the world.

John Mueller is an illustrator and  game developer he is the creator of OINK and the video game BEDLAM (both shipping in 2015). OINK is John's creator owned series of graphic novels released in the 90's, now once again in early 2015 OINK will be on book shelves with a completely new vision of the story that put him on the map. This new edition  brings all of Mueller's experience to bear on a 120pg TPB and Hardcover. John spent 5 years working on this new edition which he describes as 'The most Epic thing I've ever done." He was a pioneer in the field of digital art, and has worked with some of the biggest studios in game development. He likes making cool stuff and plans to do that until his hands and his brain are no longer responsive.

Heather Mueller keeps the lights running at BPI. She is the heart of the operation and makes sure every package gets to you in a timely fashion. Prior to her role as General Manager at BPI Heather worked for Johnson & Johnson for 14 years where she helped manage studies for the FDA in clinical research. She is one of the most organized and lovely people planet Earth has ever known.




Panel of the Day

Here's the first in a series of posts showing some of my favorite panels from my new book OINK. I get a lot of questions about how the old book differs from the new one available 2/25/15 from Dark Horse Comics. So I wanted to do a series of posts showing some of the digitally remastered panels before and afters.

This was one of those panels that way back in the early 90's I didn't really have time I wanted to get the level of finish I wanted throughout the entire book. I think one of the things I like most about the new edition is that it's really consistent from start to finish. 

This is the original panel from the 1995 edition. 

Here is the digital remastered panel from 2015

You can purchase the new edition signed directly from me or through the Amazon link at the top of my page.

Thank you for supporting independent creator owned comics.
