Isn't it grand what a little procrastination can do?

Theme number 97.

Theme number 96.

So much to post, so little time...

So I've got another theme and pictures galore, but no time to post...and a job interview (gulp) tomorrow morning. But I WILL POST AGAIN! SOONISH!

It was a valiant effort...

Our Fistacuffs team revealed:

Team When Nature Calls You Out
Mic Mollusk: Liz Prince
You want S'more?: me
Peter Sock 'em Tail: Evan Larson

We fought the good fight, but came out on the bottom. Good luck to those continuing on, and good game to those in our boat.

Wonder Woman Rodeo

So I entered this Wonder Woman Wardrobe War contest over at Project Rooftop (partly because Joe was doing it...good ol' peer pressure!). Aside from owning Wonder Woman undies when I was younger and watching the Justice League cartoon, I didn't have any attachments to her character. This was probably a good thing, since the focus would be on her costume and not her character. Unable to ignore the weirdness of the lasso (in comparison with the rest of her get-up), I picked a Western-style and ran with it. Since her costume is already über-American (red, white, and blue with stars...), why not go casual with blue jeans? Needless to say, I had a lot of fun with this. Oh yeah, and I couldn't resist once I had the image of the invisible horse in my head. Thanks to everyone over at PR!

Theme number 95.

So I went away for Thanksgiving with my computer and everything, promising myself that I would do work...and I did not. It happens every time. I did, however, eat lots and lots of tasty foods. And, regarding this theme, I was witness to a few snow flakes (though not as many as pictured above).

It's been a long week.

I haven't been posting like crazy; a bunch of stuff that happened this year finally caught up with me. Ick.

On a side note, I went to go see Paul Hornschemeier's band Arks play in Cambridge last week and I drew them (well, their instruments anyways):

Hopefully I'll be back into the swing of things soon.

Super Inappropriate.

I wanted to thank Indie Spinner Rack (which I actually had never heard of until very recently, but now I am really excited about) for mentioning two of the mini comics I had for sale at SPX ("Duddits" by me and Liz Prince, and "Talk Nerdy To Me" by me about Joe and me). Mr. Alec Longstreth was the guest host and was reporting back on all the goodies he got at SPX...I bought a lot of comics back then, but after following some of the artists that they linked, I definitely missed a few gems. To show my gratitude, and to offer poignant commentary on 25% erections and lightsabers, I (with the help of Photoshop-jedi Joe) have concocted a series of "thank-you" images for Mr. Longstreth. If I had known what Charlito and Mr. Phil looked like, I would have also provided them with little chode-y lightsabers. Alec...I hope you don't mind that I did this. I just couldn't get that image of a 1/4 of a lightsaber out of my head.

Theme number 94.

You have a lot of carbon scoring here, looks like you two have seen a lot of action.

Is it so wrong?

Why do I feel dirty for posting this in two places? I just cleaned everything! No more dirtiness! YAHHHHHRG! Anyhow. Laundry day was good. I was told by someone at the laundromat that I was eccentric. Hmmm...

Theme number 93.

The following theme is based on a true story.

Theme number 92.

I had to channel my high school self for this one. I was like, "I'll have it be all emo and stuff...". (That's astually how I was like.) I also used a micron pen (instead of my faithful brush pen); I'm not sure why (maybe because I used them all the time in high school). The cds on the floor are (left to right) goddamnit by Alkaline Trio, either/or by Elliott Smith, and Something to Write Home About by The Get Up for me to cry myself to sleep by!


I started a livejournal. Yup. I duddits. I was going to post doodles exclusively, but I couldn't even figure out how to upload a file on livejournal. SO...I'll be posting the doodle entries in both places. It's just going to be a doodle-a-day; nothing cleaned up or digitally colored (unless I make it that way). I'll still be doing everything else (the 100 Themes, and then something new to replace the themes once they're complete). Oh, and my hair is extra-fluffy today.

A page from the book.

I usually don't do this, but I thought I'd post a page from my sketchbook. Generally, I like to clean things up before I put them on the blog, but I was moved to do otherwise. It's basically a bunch of sketches for a short story (comic) I'm working on starring yours truly, and Death (in his most typical and cliché form). We'll see how that one turns out...

So I drew this last week because I was sick. But now I'm better. I'm posting it anyways. Boogers and snot one of the great marvels of the human body. Growing up, my mom had a color-code of sorts to tell how sick you are:

Yellow = Kinda Sick
Green = You are sick, and there might be an infection.
Brown = Your mucous is drying up; drink some water. Oh, and we might take you to the doctor's.
Red = Stop blowing your nose so hard, and, by the way, you are going to the doctor's.
Clear = Recovering (this is the best one!)

One time I had "Orange", but that was because someone made me laugh while I was chewing a carrot. It was moderately painful to have small chunks of carrot come out of my nose.

Theme number 90.

Oh, Christopher Walken.

Oh yeah.

Happy [belated] Halloween!

I was Link (not Zelda). I might try and post a better photo of this later (to further demonstrate the fruits of my labor).

I tried, and I failed.

I just can't seem to make a rollover of these two images:

I just thought it would be real cute as little faux-animation. If anyone knows how to write a rollover for blogger, holler.

Theme number 88.

...based on an actual experience I had with kielbasa.

Friday, October 26, 2007


That's where I am. And without the equipment to upload things so...NO THEMES! (for a day or two). Recently, an evil on-line drug robot has started to leave inane comments on posts, which I find annoying and offensive. I would actually bash that robots' brains in if it were in my power. I also have been getting an insane amount of junkmail, and I think it's becuase I had posted my e-mail in my profile (which is now gone - sorry). Any suggestions for righting this wrong? Quickly, before more robots die (I just threw my toast robot (a.k.a. a "toaster" out the window).

Theme number 87.

Is there really a "Casa de Kielbasa"? Please let it be so.

Monday, October 22, 2007

Theme number 86.

I was wondering...Does this work? I didn't have a pair of 3-D glasses lying around, but I thought it would look nifty if I tried this out. If it doesn't, I'm sorry.

Here are some sketches I did post-SPX karaoke last Saturday. It was sweaty. I met so many new folks this time around; I wish I could've drawn more of them (a la Mr. Matthew Reidsma). You'll just have to settle for these. Maybe I'll color them. Maybe.
Mr. Alec Longstreth

Miss Liz Prince

Mr. Aaron Renier I can't remember what he sang, only that he sang sweetly to everything.

Mr. Joe

and me.

I'm not really sure who the person in the left corner is...I thought is was me, but when I inked it, I thought, "That kinda looks like Liz Baillie" (who I unfortunately didn't get to meet). So maybe that's her rocking out to Weezer.

Oh yeah, and Jeff Smith rode in the back of my car (OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG.), but Joe already posted about that...

Greetings. I have returned from SPX. My eyes actually did fall out of my head...

but only after I had successfully eaten a pudding cup.

Okay seriously. I had a wonderful time at SPX. I bought lots and lots of comics, I sold stuff, traded stuff, sang karaoke, and so on. Every year I ask myself: Is it worth the drive? and every year the answer is: yes. I had so much fun, in fact, that I vomitted a rainbow:

And Liz was nice enough to help me clean it up!

I know I normally don't post pictures (except when I'm making up for lack of "art"), but here's some shots from the trip (in no particular order).

Bethesda, Maryland: here we come.

In a couple of hours, I (along with Joe, Liz, and Mr. Tim Finn) will be heading south to attend SPX in glorious Bethesda, Maryland (home of the infamous Original House of Pancakes). As promised, I'm previewing some of my wares on ye ol' blog. First up, I printed t-shirts:

These dinos actually GLOW-IN-THE-DARK! I'm excited; this is the first time in years that I've had shirts for sale, and its an all new design.

Next up is a sample from the 32-page mini comic "Talk Nerdy to Me":

The book is all nerd-inspired bedroom chat, along with some pin-ups from Mr. Joe and Miss Liz (I'll be showcasing those later on the blog).

Then, Liz and I collaborated to bring you "Duddits", the 40-page tale of a slighty deranged pillow-monster and his real-world escapades:

We did a series of activity pages to supplement the main story; this one makes me hungry for tacos (but not poop).

If you, or anyone you know, is going to be in the vicinity, send them on down. I'd love to meet any dotsoforeyes blog readers! (As well as see some SPX regulars.)

Theme number 82.

Whew. I'm in Maine right now, finishing up some work from the summer. I'm also busting my butt getting together two mini-comics for SPX. I think my eyes are going to pop out of their sockets. I'd draw a picture of that happening if my hand weren't so cramped up. I would like to add that Chanterelle mushrooms are excellent if sautéed and placed upon a cheese and herb pizza. (I've become somewhat obsessed with food as of late. I'm not sure if it is because of ye ol' Harvest-time, or if I was deprived by eating camp food all summer). Needless to say, I've been appreciating the more tasty things that nature has to offer. O.K. Enough about this, because this really has nothing to do with the actual post. I'm just going on a tangent. And now I'm ending it. For reals.
