KEYBOARD CATACLYSM

Attentive, unblinking viewers of G4TV's Attack of the Show might have seen this fellow on yesterday's broadcast. I entered their Great American Keyboard Cat Competition because, basically, that's the sort of thing I do. Read more...Collapse )

THE END IS NEAR

7/19/09 | 05:55 am



Another foray into videomancy, this time with The Fiery Furnaces and Mr. Rudolph Valentino.

The song is titled "The End Is Near" and the footage, serendipitously enough, is from the 1921 film "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse". Enjoy.

UPDATE: Dear G4, Have you been reading my blog?

SPONGEBAT SQUAREBOB

Photobucket

I must confess I've never really "gotten" Spongebob Squarepants. I remember seeing it when it first came on Nickelodeon* and just really missing the early days of Ren & Stimpy. Plus, I've never been able to shake the sense that it's somehow an ornately disguised dirty joke.** I'm getting old, I guess.

One thing's for certain though, and that's the fact that my niece and nephews have all been massive Spongebob fans at one time or another. Even if, it turns out, they haven't actually seen the show!

a.k.a. I will probably delete this soon but I thought someone might find it amusing and/or informative.

Recently, after literally years of imagining what they might be like, I was finally able to get my hands on a few volumes of Osamu Tezuka's original Monkey King manga (ぼくの孫悟空)...

NEW YORKER

MR. TILLEY TAKES MANHATTAN?!? WHUT?!?

EUSTACE KAWAII

See that secret hand sign up there? Translated, it means that TWO of my entries in The New Yorker's 2009 Eustace Tilley contest are now being featured in the winners' slideshow over on NewYorker.com! Out of the 300 or so pieces people submitted to the contest, I was doubly thrilled to find my two occupying a cozy spot between entries by both my former art sensei/Electronic Arts Storyboarding & Concept Guru/all-around swell guy Gary Amaro AND The Laugh-Out-Loud Cats Cartoonist/Hobo King of Internetlandia/all-around swell guy himself Adam "ApeLad" Koford.

I really have to hand it to Adam for helping to generate some nice viral buzz for my Watchmen-themed entry over at Drawn! early on (especially since he still had an entry of his own on the way)! Be sure to grab a copy or three of his new LOLCats comic strip collection like, NOW. (I'm certainly warming up my ROFLcopter and soup for whenever mine arrives.) :D

to a heppy land! fur, fur awayyy!!!

GOOD EVENING GOODNESS

12/11/08 | 03:33 pm

John Hodgman, esteemed PC-portrayer and expert in Complete World Knowledge, has this day adorned his interweb portal with one of my Mole-Manic scribbledy-doodlings.



For this I am and shall remain: incredulous, grateful & glowing (also, oddly enough: solitary, pale & ever-fearful of the sun). Thank you, Sir Hodg-man.

CARRY ON.

The good folks over at Modofly have included my antiquated little "Steamonkey" in their latest series of designer Moleskines. I am delighted. Looking over the work of my fellow designers, I must say I am humbled as well. Be sure to check out the Modofly site for a slew of beautimous books (sure to satisfy all your gift-giving needs, ho ho!).

BEOWULF by Lynd Ward

11/1/08 | 03:33 am

Photobucket

Not too long ago some prints from Lynd Ward's Frankenstein were making their way around the blogosphere, much to my delight. In the course of researching different styles for my Kafka adaptation at the Academy, I stumbled upon Ward's art (along with that of his fellow "wordless" storytellers) and slowly but surely started building up my own little collection. The scans below the cut are from an (out-of-print?) edition of his Beowulf I found at a public library book sale.
