DUN DUN DUNNNNNN
Open Mic Night for Apotheca in Goffstown. Not sure if I ever uploaded this. WHERE’S MY MONEY COREY? HMMM?
I may have already uploaded this one too. NO CARE EVER.
This show was really awesome. AND I really liked most of this flyer.
Definitely one of my favorites
Definitely NOT one of my favorites. Tried something different, failed.
Sticker design that never got made.
Drawing for a Billy Raygun shirt D SOL and I did behind the rest of the bands’ backs. Take that.
Here’s the finished product:
Ask me if you want one. Hand screen printed on whatever you want.
Poster for WUNH’s Hi-Fi (weird star) Fest. Colors are off because its a shitty JPEG. If you want the real version lemme know.
Front and back (it’s a gatefold cover silly) of the upcoming Billy Raygun/Lipstick Homicide split. Photograph of Sephie, my floor, and words all by me. Help by D Sol. Edited digitally with Photoshop. Nothing is digital besides the black and white and halftone effects. Pretty neat.
I also did the layout for the inserts and the labels on the vinyl, with Bill Pinkel providing the other set of art. The release is a ‘reversible’ LP jacket with two entirely different covers on each side. YOU choose which one you want to display! SUCH POWER!! Screen printed by Shout Out Loud and should be available June 14th.
That’s it for today. I have been incredibly lazy/burned out since doing all this stuff. We have some shows coming up, so expect more flyers. I also have a finished first Boy Commander Rex comic I haven’t uploaded since it hasn’t been released. The second one is getting started.

INSERT FUNNY THING HERE
Here is a whole lot of pictures. Mostly doodles and dumb stuff. You have been warned.
A more substantial update with flyers, shirts, and album arts is forthcoming. I PROMISE.
Check out my blog for my radio show, CAT PARTY. It has downloads/streams of old shows and full, generally out of print, albums for download. LOOKEE: http://partyingcats.blogspot.com/
To make good on my promise of daily updates, here is…an…update? I’ve been reading the shit out of Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing lately. It’s ridiculously awesome. It’s about The Swamp Thing, a force of nature, and his exploits struggling to find his identity and purpose while squashing out evil. If you like horror, this book is for you. It’s chock full of vampires/the occult/zombies/monsters and is done in a total old horror comic style. Add to that Alan Moore’s perfect grasp on the comic book media, and art from Stephen Bissette and John Totleben among a couple others and you’ve got yourself quite the substantial comic book. Don’t sell it short by calling it a typical horror book however. It’s also got sci fi and superhero elements as well as deep morals and philosophical questions.
Here are a couple of pages that stuck out for me from the 2nd and 3rd graphic novels.
The story follows Alec Holland, who became the Swamp Thing after a chemical explosion (standard super power getting fare). Alan Moore changes things up here though and turns Swamp Thing into solely a monster/force of nature by killing off the Holland side completely. This scene depicts Swamp Thing burying Holland’s actual bones, proving that the man no longer remains inside the creature.
One thing I really like about the book is that in the story Swamp Thing can deconstruct his body and re-grow it anywhere there is plant life. This allows for some great character re-designs. His body looks different depending of the vegetation indigenous to the certain area.
This particular story was about a city of underwater vampires who adapted to a flood by growing gills and survived because the sun didn’t reach them deep underwater. They ended up breeding somehow and created this crazy fish-vampire monster hybrid.
And finally this other story involved an old Swamp Thing villain, Arcane, who was masquerading as Abby’s (Swamp Things “love” interest) husband. He’s a demon so he can do that sort of shit.
I have yet to read Moore’s entire run yet, and I eagerly await the next 5 or so books I have left. Swamp Thing is a unique, action packed, horrifying look at an old comic book character. Moore has put so much life and substance into this once forgotten character that I can’t possibly represent with my stupid ramblings. Moral of the story: check it out.
