Happy New Year Feens!


So it's not been the most productive Christmas Holiday. I've been working a few bar shifts which has made me quite jaded and lazy.
Here is some stuff what I only did yesterday, and that's all I've done over the break really...

That's it I think.

He will truly be missed!

seriouslah


This is late and I missed last ones saturday and I'm sorry for adding in on Kev's day but I feel awfully bad for not putting anything up last saturday so I'm putting up a thing I did ages ago but still enjoy thinking back on. This is a birdhouse for homeless. It says on the sign. Two junkies walked by when we put it up and got a bit upset but then calmed down and liked it. Then it was stolen the next day . Coincidence? I think not.

Further on: åäö.

Also I might not be able to put up anything next saturday due to Traveling back to the green island while singing drunken songs on the plane. So you might find another middle of the week post from me. Later!

Monday Mindache gets off on being withholding.


i have nothing interesting to say. maybe i should talk anyway. should i talk anyway? i'll talk anyway... so... the sky eh? ... the ionosphere... auroras... did you see the match? yeah, they scored a goal. i don't know, i don't like football. that recent film was good wasn't it? it got good reviews, so i like it. it hurt my eyes and i believe what it told me. i'm afraid of aliens but ghosts are nothing to fear when you have a mobile phone and a good understanding of electromagnetism. the kids are alright. who sees to that? the who sees to that. give them a bit rock 'n' roll and they'll be grand. you shouldn't use the phone after 9pm and plants will turn against us once GM kicks in. machines created man, the moon isn't really there and rain is actually the blood of space whales being hunted for their plutonium.

that's all. sweet dreams!

Max, The Monster Killer and The Monster King.



Two paintings for Mag's project. The second one was actually the first I did, hence why the top one looks better. The shine from the camera kind of spoils them, but They were too big for the a4 scanner.

Drawings 'n' Stuff.




Ok, sorry for the delay.

The top pic is a quick sketch I did with a blue biro. I know how some people hate biro, but there's a certain softness in the mark that I love. That said, they're really not suited for anything but jotting down a quick concept.

The one in the middle is my idea for a doll/puppet thing we have to make for Louise's class. It's supposed to represent different interests you have, so mine is a soldier that loves heavy metal. I can't say I'm thrilled about making a doll, or that I see the sense in doing it for an illustration course, but whatever, it might be fun. Ours is not to reason why.

The bottom image is Max, again, but I wanted to take the idea of himself using remains of the monsters a bit farther, which was kind of a dumb move, because he apparently looks like something from The Village, a film I had never seen because Shmilyman. Or whatever his name is. This image isn't really finished, but I still like the look it.

Christmas Mindache emits jolly frequencies.


i did do these for other christmases. no festive scrawling this year i'm afraid. not bah humbug, i have the cheer. i already got two early prezzies! the chip shop up the road has opened back up! and another wisdom tooth is cutting through! theres something about this pain i enjoy, can't stop poking at it. hey, its like a metaphor for some kind of crap or other!

i'm gonna own this muthafuckin' christmas in the most brutally zen way possible!!!

MERRY TO ALL! AND MAY SPACE-JESUS BLESS YOU WITH SUPER POWERS!

CHRISTMAS IN THE NAME OF!!!

Old school music guy

where the wild things are


I wanted to do little wild things in fabric so here's the madness so far. I will photograph them in their right element when I'm home in sweden over christmas.
Oh and by the way, this is not a sponsorship thing, I do not get paid to write this (which would have been totally sweet if I would actually). I am going to eat pizza from Hell today (www.hell.ie) GET THIS: THEY HAVE VEGAN PIZZA. There, I've been excited about this for a week now so I thought I'd let youse know.

Where The Wild Things Are 2

Again this isnt finished yet but its another Where The Wild Things are potential final piece. I still havent decided what to do with the background yet so dont mind the brown mark above Max's head, I'll be going over it. I used acyrlics on canvas for it :)

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

Toxie


Aloha Crusaders! I loved this show when I was younger, between my brothers and I, we seriously had all the action figures, vechiles the lot! I really loved Nozone, he was a former pilot who flew through a hole in the Ozone layer and crashed into a silo of radioactive pepper...radioactive pepper... known for his powerful sneezes and enormous nose, he rocked my world! Anyway this is the big man himself, Melvin Ferd, worked as a janitor until one day he lands in a drum of toxic waste, which immediately causes severe burns and disfigurement (like real toxic waste would however) Melvin goes home, has bath as ya do and transforms into a hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength, known as the Toxic Avenger!!!...who’s weapon of choice was a superpowered mop, named Mop, which had a mind of its own, and he had a furry pink pet called Blobbie.

Mail Me Art







The Mail Me Art non-entry. I couldn't fit it all into the scanner. Looks a bit like Man-Thing, but I had The Lord Weird Slough Feg in mind when I was working on it.

Monday Mindache won't get out of bed for less than the promise of eternal serenity.



for the "where the wild things are" college project. i decided i'd take the liberty of rewriting the story. in my adaption max is a grown man, regressed to his childhood mind in order to bring balance and order to his corrupted psyche. the wild things represent elements of his psyche, running rampant on his isolated and untamed island subconscious. nothing too heavy, just a bit o' fun.

this christmas i would like:
- a monkey-son
- a teleportation pod (with insect repellent)
- My First Particle Collider from Hasbro
- a larger skull
- the code

old thingy again


First of all: yes I am lazy. Second: I do have new material but my computer isn't loving bluetooth. Third, santa hasn't brought me a scanner yet.
And fourth of all.. I do like rats.

Where The Wild Things Are

This is for a college project based on the children's book "Where The Wild Things Are", its not finished yet but with some more work and the addition of colour I'm hoping to use it as one of my final pieces. It's Max on his throne being carried by the Wild Things. Hope ya likey!!!

Thursday, December 10, 2009



Still pretty tired from last week so nothing new and shiny for today's post. I suppose in the spirit of going to see the film next week I'm posting this.
I doodled it down quickly after seeing 15mins of footage from the film last August. That said, only the blue cat thing is from the film, the rest is just things from my in the brain going stuff.

Grimdark Max


This is my take of Max from Where The Wild Things Are. It's part of a project for Mag's class. She seems to like the design, so I'll go with it.

Meh


Aloha and meh!

Monday Mindache sifts through the rubble of technological failure.


so my computing machine died of a man-made virus, just like the people with swine flu. who makes these things? some bitter nerd with a boner for binary? bill gates? that norton guy? freemasons? PETA? whoever it was, i lost EVERYTHING. nothing was backed up. i refuse to live in fear! i will not back up everything! i will not buy every antivirus! i will not get the vaccine! i will not read the newspaper! i will only live, love and laugh as long as that is possible and when its not, well, i'll catch you on the flippity floop!

this picture is what bambi looks like when you put roddy piper's glasses on.

the one thing we have in common is that we're all the same. PEACE MOTHERFUCKERS!

There And Back Again


Despite the fact that the title of the post is ripped straight from Lord Of The Rings, the actual post has nothing to do with any of the works of Tolkien. This is a page from the brochure I was working on, makes a nice change to Batman. As to my noted absence in the last week:

traumatised lady without hands.


Cause if she had them it would just be weird.


Plus she seems quite content as handless.
Then again, that's without comparison to anything else.

Batman

Apologies for missing last week's post, college work and whatnot got the best of me :(. Since I've spent forever posting Joker related stuff I thought why not give the B-man a shot so here he is. Done with indian ink and water - nice and simple :)

Sexy ladies.




I like Eva Green. Quite a bit actually.
And although I don't think Catwoman should feature in the next installment of Nolan's Batman, I do think you could doworse than cast her forthe part. Hence the sketches, though I think she looks more like Bat-girl in the pic I drew. Weird.

The rest are just a liquorice allsorts of sexy ladies.
