And The Winner Is…

Congratulations Justin Weingartner! You are the winner of the First Ever (and possibly last) Batboy Caption Contest! You are now the wittiest wordsmith in all the land! Your caption will live on in the hearts and minds of humanity for generations.

And congrats to your friend Tommy Drew! I hope you guys enjoy the books!

This announcement is a bit delayed here on the blog. If you follow along on Instagram or Twitter you may have witnessed and/or participated in the fun. I might do another contest in the near future, so smash that follow button, yo! I apologize for that.

And for my New Jersey people, I will be vending at the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market on Saturday, May 21st! The first 50 people to enter will get a black swag bag with some possible goodies from yours truly! I’ll have some new art items available which I will post soon. Stay tuned.

BATBOY CAPTION CONTEST!

It’s official: I’ve run out of ideas!

That’s why I’m happy to announce the first ever (and possibly last) BATBOY CAPTION CONTEST!

TO ENTER: Come up with an amazing caption and/or some hilarious dialogue for Batboy or his squirrel-friend Merle, POST IT AS A COMMENT and then TAG A FRIEND who you think might appreciate your bizarre sense of humor.

The winner and their friend will each receive a signed copy of my latest book: BATBOY AND THE ART OF SELF-SABOTAGE

The contest will run for one week (starting…now) on Instagram, Twitter and this blog, after which a panel of funny judges will decide which is the most side-splitting, knee-slappingest entry of them all.

By entering the contest, you agree to have your winning caption published on social media and in a future printed Batboy collection (with credit given to you, of course, as the wittiest wordsmith in all the land.)

Good luck. Now get to writing!

Batboy Gets Real

Experimenting with a little mashup of photography and illustration. It’s a fun way to get out of my cozy little rut. Now I need to keep my eyes peeled for more photo ops!

Cheesy Infomercials & Some New Art

So I needed to make a book trailer for my latest release Batboy & the Art of Self-Sabotage.

I decided on a cheesy approach in the style of all those goofy infomercials I grew up watching in the 80s and 90s.

Long story short, I had way too much fun making this parody infomercial. I hope it makes you guys laugh and you’ll consider checking out my book on Amazon.

“Don’tcha just luv the sunshine?”

In between my video editing and the continuing adventures of Batboy, I’ve tried keeping the creativity flowing with some quick pencil sketches on my Wacom Tablet. Above is some sort of woodland horror and below is some kind of friendly aquatic monstrosity.

Well, that’s all I’ve got for you at the moment, you can follow along with new Batboy comics every week on Instagram and Twitter.

And remember, don’t let those pesky vegetables bring you down!

We’re Number—Wha?

We’re NUMBER ONE…I mean, err, umm, we’re number nine hundred thousand two…five hundred thirty…one!

We’re halfway there!

I usually avoid paying attention to these numbers, but I was just curious how my latest book is faring on the Amazon Best Sellers List. It could be worse, I guess.

And in other news, Batboy and the Art of Self-Sabotage received its first review! Take a look:

Batboy is all of us. Self-sabotage and all. Lovely artwork and color, with a unique voice. There's even callouts to Gorey! And as a bonus there is a sketchbook of Batboy at the end. I loved it.

Wow, FIVE STARS! Thank you, Andrew! I might have to quote you on that! Actually, I think I will right now, in a large bold font:

“Batboy is all of us. Self-sabotage and all. Lovely artwork and color, with a unique voice. There’s even callouts to Gorey! And as a bonus there is a sketchbook of Batboy at the end. I loved it.”

AVAILABLE ON AMAZON – CLICK THAT IMAGE!

I almost forgot to say, HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYBODY! I hope you had a great bunch of holidays. Since it’s a new year, expect to see some new Batboys too.

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you can see some new stuff right now!

Until next time!

Walls!

Potatoes and the Promise of More Potatoes

The Antonine Wall - Scottish CanalsA wall is defined as “a structural element used to divide or enclose”. Like when your brother-in-law tried to put up sheet-rock in your basement and your family was divided between those who wanted to not pay him and those who wanted to put him into rehab…

Only on rare occasions are partition walls load-bearing. How can you tell if it is? Slide the walls back and wait for the floor above to come to you.

The word “wall” originally only referred to defensive walls; i.e. walls built to slow the attack of an enemy… unless your brother-in-law built it. In that case, the enemy might not have even noticed the wall.

A firewall is a wall that burns slower than the other walls of a building so allow the occupants time to get out or to save that baseball you own that was autographed by a…
