Dragon Con 2017!

Cosplay Video and photos from Beat Down Boogie!

I gotta admit; Every time I see one of these Beat Down Boogie videos – of cosplayers dancing around, and having fun – I get jealous. I mean; I want to go to Dragon Con! Hang around with a hot Oolas and a Ninja turtles, but no! I gotta go to my crap ass job, and then get groceries and the dry cleaning. Y’know, maybe I’ll go get a camera. Then I’ll travel around the country and take pictures of people dancing around in foam costumes, and pair that up with… 1960’s folk music! Yeah, I’ll be that guy! Screw these kids what with their fancy videos and trippy music! I can do this too!

ehh. No, I can’t. So, just enjoy another video from guys who’s job is way better’n mine, and watch all the cool fun I’ll never get to have. Also, I posted a few images below from the Beat Down Boogie Facebook page, but this is just a small sample. Click the link to see way more.

Cheers.


P.S. El Moochadores. If you are currently working on (or have produced) an independent comic, film, game, or music that has a strong nerd/geek vibe: Let us know! I’m always looking for cool “geek-creative stuff to post about” here on the Moo, and learning about your project would really help me out – and save me a lot of time searching the internet!

Carlations

The Illustrations of Carla Wyzgala

Hey El Moochadores, sorry about the lack of post the last few days, but (y’know) my life sucks. Anyways, this morning I’m turning to the “con-pile” (all the cool stuff I brought home from SDCC 17) for a little inspiration before I start my day, and literally (not figuratively) on top of the pile is this great set of mini-prints by artist Carla Wyzgala!

Though I can’t find some online sample of all the mini-prints I bought from Wyzgala (Carlations), I found enough examples here to show off her incredible pin-up work done in water colors. Very cool style, and she did a set of prints based on some of my favorite comics, like Saga! Seriously, her version of Alana is amazing – and as we all know; Alana is one of the hottest flying MILF’s since Elizabeth Montgomery on Bewitched. Y’know, this probably isn’t the place for my “flying women” or “nick at nite” fetishes.

Soooooo anyways… Check out some samples below and also go visit Carlations on the Etsy and the Society Six to get some prints, books, or even some shirts. Seriously, it’s sad, but I would totally buy an Alana body pillow. ‘just an idea. Also an Elizabeth Montgomery body pillow. That’s another idea.

Cheers.

Shiver Bureau and Cubicles

Two Great Comics from Walter Ostlie!

Okay El Moochadores, today is the glorious day of the birth of Brethren Moo Chud and Trog (me), but we celebrated last night and at the ripe old age of 41 (32 to any women reading this…) hangovers pack a bit more of a punch than they use to. Yea, I went an “Irish Car-bomb” too far and I’m paying for it. However, prior to last nights drunk’n debauchery, I had the chance to read two really fantastic comics that we received from last weeks San Diego Comic Con.

Created by Walter Ostlie, Cubicles and Shiver Bureau are two wonderfully illustrated, and very funny, graphic novels. Shiver Bureau is like an English Ghostbusters where a pair of skilled detectives fight to defend London from all sorts of evils spirits and Monsters. In the comic I got, the Inspectors are tracking down a bunch of missing orphans and the creepy monsters that are preying on them. Then in Cubicles… well, think Office Space but with space pirates and giant squids. Yeah, I think that was my favorite of the two, but the main story features two office “slackers” who trip over an evil plot to take over the company and also get to save the boss’s beautiful daughter in an epic battle. Well, I use epic loosely, but it’s still very cool.

I thought both graphic novels were very entertaining and Ostlie has an incredible illustrative style that blends humor and intense action in an amazing way. I’ve posted a couple of sample pages below, but if you get a chance visit Ostlie’s online store to get copies for your self. Also, you can actually read Shiver Bureau vol. 2 here for free. We love free! Also, If you really want to support Ostlie and his work, check out his Patreon, and kick him a few bucks every month. Okay. I gotta go lay down now and get ready for my next big puke. Happy Birf-Day to me mudder fuggers!!!

Cheers.

NYCC 2016 Coverage from Beat Down Boogie!

Spotlight Videos One and Two!

We’re west coast guys and, for the most part, content with our lives here in sunny, beautiful, San Diego. However, we’re also very poor and unable to attend some of the amazing comic book conventions happening around the world. So, we rely on the stunning photo and video work of the fine people at Beat Down Boogie to provide excellent coverage of events like NYCC 2016. Just seeing all the beautiful cosplay and fun events shot in slow motion and paired with good tunes fills me… aww, who am I kidding. These guys are good at something and they get to travel around the world doing it and that feels me with a jealous rage! I’m terrible at everything and it gets me no where! Fuck’n life. So anyways; for what ever reason, check out the videos below to either enjoy them or seethe with the frustrating jealousy.

Enjoy.

SLCC 2016!

Some Photos from an Awesome Event!

Okay El Moochadores, my main computer is bugging out so I’m having to use an old laptop to write this post, but we’re back from Salt Lake Comic Con 2016 and it was frigg’n awesome! Who’d have thunk that those mountain dwelling, snow humpers could’ve put together such a cool comic book convention?IMG_0682 The con offered a huge exhibit hall, an excellent artist alley (made all the better by your favorite brothers moo), a huge celebrity turn out (including The Fonze!), and lots of panels, games, and other fun stuff! Also, cosplay! Tons of cosplay! Seriously! Those mormons can sew! …or tape, staple, and weld. Anyways, we even tried out some new stuff at this con. For the first time Jason and I started to draw mini-sketchesIMG_0665 and commissions from our booth. Check out some of the images below, and I gotta say I’m really looking forward to next year! Well, I’m not looking forward to telling my mom I’m getting a hotel next year. Our mom lives up in SLC and we spent the last week camping out on her living room floor. My back hurts really bad now. So, I need to come up with a really nice way to tell my elderly mother that I don’t want to stay with her next year – Giant breakfast and folded clothes be damned! However, we did save a ton of money, and mom did make Magic Bars… damn.

Enjoy!

Atomic Moo and Murray Brother’s Creative are Heading to SLC!

Okay you mountain love’n Moochadores, the week after next we’re trekking up to Salt Lake City to booth at SLCC 2016! We’ll be in the Artist Alley section of the con and if you’re in the area we would love (well… like) for you to come on by and see our stuff. The art, I mean. Nothing weird. Anyways, I always kind of dug Salt Lake City and it’ll be a good little road trip to what I’m hoping is a great comic book con!

Anyways, I’ll post more information as the con draws near. Also, I should remind you all that this weekend we’ll be at Nerd Con in Escondido, Ca. So… lot of chances to see your favorite brothers moo! Check out a few samples of our vector art below!

Cheers!

More Great Stuff from the Con Pile!

Okay El Moochadores, I got a day off and a little time to relax with my good buddy; the con pile. Yeah, that growing mound of cards, comics, prints, buttons, and whatever else falls into my SWAG bag as I meander the isles of California’s best comic conventions. However, tragedy struck the con pile recently. Well, “tragedy” being my tumbling, 210 lb, body as I tripped over the vacuum cord while trying to clean my room. To be honest, the pile kind of saved me, but at it’s own expense. You see, previous to this the con pile was a form of strata built up from all the various conventions, now it’s a mingled mess of motley promotional muck. Weird thing is, when I was picking it all up, I actually found a bone in the pile! I shit you not, a bone! At first,tumblr_mw6ywsqsYg1qi2w7yo1_1280 I thought it was fossil, but nah… chicken bone. I gotta clean more.

Anyways… Straight from the con pile is a post about an artist who I know I met at SDCC 2016, because I bought one of his prints! Today we’re taking a look at the amazing talent of Erwin Haya (aka: IAMOSi. Haya is a Bay area based artist/illustrator and I think I remember him telling us some of his work was vector based art. I think. I could be wrong, but if so; this is incredible, and done at a level I’d like to see my own vector art achieve some day. You can also see a bunch of his pen and marker work on his website, which is equally impressive. His work has this sort of cool, urban life, vibe that explodes in only a few colors. Yeah, I’m happy with my print.

I’ve posted a few samples of his work below, but Iamosi has an online store where you can go an buy some of his art and show some support.

Enjoy!

Nerd Con 2016!

58d936_d12bf0ace600466da3d8138a18641940

Okay El Moochadores, at the end of this month we’re going to have a table at Nerd Con 2016 in… Escondido. Sorry, I was trying to come up with an agreeable adjective for Escondido, but all that came to mind was a sort of wheezing sound.wolverine_vector_bust_072916_by_jrmurray76-dacmkol Still, they have a comic con happening there from Aug. 26th to the 28th, so there’s a sign of hope! This’ll be our first year tabling at Nerd Con (actually this has been our first year tabling at any con), and we’re trying to get the word out so as to help support local cons, which in turn supports your local, cow inspired, geek blogs. Both Jason and I will be premiering new art work at the con, like this Wolverine bust Jason just finished. As this month passes, I’ll be posting more about the art work we’re taking and hopefully, if you’re anywhere in the Southern California area (especially Riverside and San Diego counties, you’ll swing in and have a good time checking out independent art and creators making stuff they love.

Cheers!

Brooklyn Gladiator #000!

Cover

Excellent Comic pulled from the Con Pile!

Okay El Moochadores, my excavation of the “con pile” continues and today I uncovered something really cool! At this last SDCC 2016 I wandered past the Heavy Metal booth where actor Dan Fogler was signing preview issues of his comic book, Brooklyn Gladiator! Yeah, Dan “Balls of Fury” Fogler made a comic book! keen.

Written by Fogler with Anderw Harrision, also illustrated by Tom Hodges, Brooklyn Gladiator is set in a dystopian future best described as “the lovechild of Orwell, Image_1 Huxley and stoner conspiracy theories.” Set in a world where capitalism, pollution, and government control all conspire to control the American population, a man with strange psychic abilities fights back. Here’s the synopsis from the 2015 Kickstater:

John Miller is public enemy number one.He fights nanite-enhanced maniacs in the underground gladiator circuit and sells bootleg drugs far less contaminated than the government’s brand. Psychic abilities have surfaced in John’s mind, allowing him to bypass the state’s tech and access ancient knowledge. John’s talents will send him on a journey against the machines that govern his city as he deconstructs their regime and the very concept of civilization.

I really dug the art in this book and it’s own special brand of a failed nation. The book starts with some really cool quotes like “mindless consumers buy more crust than pizza. More filter than cigarette” – which kind of sums up my feelings towards this current, Farce Awakens, loving generation of Pokemon chasing nimrods – who’s disinterest in anything unrelated to iPhone apps and skinny jeans allowed for our current sham of an election cycle. Huh. I’m pissed about something, but I’m not sure what anymore.

Anyways, this was a fun read, unfortunately I couldn’t find where a copy of issue #1 can be found (true, I did not look very hard. I have mice to draw!), so I think there is just the preview issue. There is a Tumbler page for the comic and future information might appear there. As for meeting Fogler at the con, and getting a signed issue… meh. Kind of frumpy dude, but then again it was the last day of the con, and San Diego Comic Con can kind of drain your energy. Still, a lesson for any creator at any level, selling their books to fans: liven the fuck up and don’t be a dick when someone’s buying your comic! Smile. Say “hello.” Money is tight right now, so show a little gratitude when some one gives it to you, and don’t act like a miserable old fart! And if you’re not that excited to be there: go the fuck home and don’t create a bad first impression for your other writer and artist who’s work is represented in that book you’re frumpy hands are scribbling on. Fuck’n celebrities.

All the same check out some sample images below. These are just black and white images I pulled from the Kickstarter page and the final, color, pages our much more impressive.

Enjoy.
