Okay El Moochadores, one of the Brethren Moo (Numbers!) is in a bad way, and needs money for a new pair of spectacles (or was it testicles… heh), and since I know how much a pair of glasses can cost I thought we would do our part to help him get a new pair. Currently there is a Gofundme to help him out and get him the new specs, which is almost funded. Way to go Numbers! Also, go check out Numbers’s web comic Ages 25 and Up, and make sure you donate before he starts using My Little Pony Figures in the comic. He’s that blind with out glasses.
Hello El Moochadores! While I continue to post our photos from SDCC 2017, I thought I would start working my way through all the biz and promo cards I just acquired at last weeks big event. SDCC is full of brilliant art work and seeing this stuff helps keep us (the Brethren Moo) inspired to keep making cool stuff too.
So first up is the art work of Bryan Fyffe. I remember passing his booth and really liking the colorful/spooky prints he had created. According to his site, Fyffe is “inspired by old ghost stories, the natural world, and decrepit builds…”, and he works in a combination of traditional and digital techniques. I’ve posted a few samples from his website here, and you can also go buy prints of his work at his online store. Though I’m not sure if the print images posted here are available online, he does have some very cool stuff there. Anyways, check it all out, and I’ll have more from The Con Pile (it’s an actual pile of con stuff sitting by my desk) later today.
Hey El Moochadores! The 2017 San Diego Comic Con International ended yesterday, and it was one hell of an experience. Though we mostly spent our time in educational panels (thank you Room 2!), we also wandered about the con and came back with some cool photos of con-happenings. It’s going to take me a while to post all the photos, and I need to get about half of them from Chud’s camera, so keep checking back here to see more. Also, we met a lot of great creatives and makers at this years con, and we’ll be posting about their stuff of the next couple of weeks.
***I have to leave for work. I’ll finish posting photos later tonight! Cheers!***
Okay El Moochadores, I’m trying to get out the door for SDCC 2017, but I just finished Atomic Tails #19! Which is way more important. Check out the strip below, or you can go check it out, with past comics, at the A.T. Archive! Also check out my Atomic Tails Blog (Trog’s Blog) to learn a little about the making of the comic. After all, this is one big learning experience.
Hello again El Moochadores! A few days back I posted a video by artist H.C. Brown about “How to Fill a Sketchbook.” Since then I’ve been watching more of her channel and I came across this great video on getting cheap supplies for artist at any level. I really like her suggestion for making a sketchbook. I have a ton of card stock paper at my place just collecting dust, and as luck has it, I also have a long-arm stapler! I’ve already put together a couple of pocket-sized sketchbooks to carry around with me while at work. Which is great, because I’m always losing my small sketchbooks! So, check out the video below (chuck full of useful information and cussing!) and make sure to hit the link above to see more informative videos.
Hey El Moochadores, I just crawled out of my self-induced coma (seriously, best cure for getting sick: Knock yourself the fuck out then wake up in a pool of sweat and a fug of confusion! Still a little shaky. Also, I am not a doctor. Don’t do anything I suggest. EVER) to find out Game of Thrones started, Dr. Who regenerated a vagina, and Martin Landau and George Romero just died. The first two I could give a shit less about, but it did bum me out to learn about the deaths of Mr. Landau and Mr. Romero. Chud and I have been long time horror movie fans, and I have a lot of good childhood memories staying up late and watching his “dead” movies. I always liked Dawn the best, but probably because I was more of a Tom Savini fan at the time… Anyways, it also sucks that we lost Martin Landau. Ed Wood is one of my all time favorite movies (like really high in my top ten list that I’ve never written down) and I also remember him from Mission Impossible, Cleopatra, and Space 1999. Also, he had a kick ass appearance in Columbo where he played both murdering twins! Oh, yeah; You can’t really spoil a Columbo episode. They kind of do that themselves.
So, while I go drink a lot of juice and change my sheets (Christ I hope that’s just fever sweat…), check out a couple of videos of some of Landau and Romero’s work.
I just found out they have the entire Night of the Living Dead on the Youtube! Uber-enjoy!
Hey El Moochadores, I was trying to keep up with a daily post, but then I got slammed with a pretty bad flu. One week before SDCC 2017 and I get sick. Fuck. Anyways, while I get better here’s some videos of waving bears and a bunch of Chip ‘n’ Dale Cartoons. Yeah, I don’t know why either. They just make me feel a little better in between fever dreams.
Kickstarter for “a collection of one hundred comics about talking back to your self-doubt and anxiety, and a plush demon to go with ’em.”
You know, I was just thinking that today I would like to post about a kickstarter project dealing with self doubt and anxiety, because (you know) we’re Atomic Moo, and self doubt and anxiety are our bread and butter here. Anyways, Talented Portland based illustrator, Lucy Bellwood, has a Kickstarter going to publish a collection of a hundred comics about anxiety (think Steven Pressfield idea of “the resistance” made funny) along with of plushie of the little anxiety monster.
As of this post the project has hit its goal of $25,000, but that’s no reason for you not to still contribute and get in on some cool rewards like limited edition prints and the plush toy. I’ve posted Bellwood’s KS promo video below, but click the link above to learn more about the project and contributing.
Hey El Moochadores! I had a pretty long day at work, but in between pick ups I watched this great tutorial from Proko on the Youtube that covers a method for drawing the human head from any angle. Something I actually struggle with. I did a few sketches too, but seeing as how I’m falling asleep at the computer, I might wait until tomorrow to post them with this video. Until then enjoy the video, while I go to sleep and dream of large women.
What’s the what El Moochadores!? I’ll tell you what. Soon War of the Planet of the Apes will hit theaters (July 13th). So, to get ready for probably the only decent film to hit theaters this summer (suck a dick Disney/Marvel) check out a brief review of the Ape franchise from Distractotron.
