The Algorithm ____Itty Bitty Bastards № 6

Kenneth Kline soared high above the sprawling city, his cape cracking sharply on wind currents.

He hovered over Centre City Hall, and loomed over the throngs of scurrying citizens in the bustling intersection. His heartbeat quickened; his smile grew. Down he dropped, as fast and hard as possible, causing an impact crater that crushed a dozen people with debris. He cut an entire building in half with his laser vision, and laughed as it caved in on itself. Kenneth raged upon the citizens of Center City for reasons not even known to himself. He was death. Simple, and total. And they all had it coming.

The city began to tremble. Even the sure-footed demigod was no match for the quake. A voice boomed from above, shattering glass and eardrums alike.

“Initiating purge— Pod G-11789.” A sudden rush of weightlessness occurred, then the sun began to falter. The city went dark…

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…

Shop Update & A Milestone For Batboy

I’m really excited to share this NEW DESIGN in my Amazon T-shirt store! This abomination was the result of a T-shirt design competition(which I lost) but I couldn’t let this gnarly creature go! So now he’s available in a variety of colors (including GREEN, which makes a perfect Christmas gift, wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more!) Follow the link!

Batboy # 49

In other news, my comic Batboy is nearing its 50th installment and I have no clue what’s in store for this milestone. Hopefully I’m not building it up too much. I’m already underwhelmed.

There’s another Batboy project in the works, can’t share too much at the moment, but I tell you it’s gonna be big!

So stay tuned for some new Batboy shenanigans, you can follow along on Instagram and Twitter.

Until next time!

Happy October!

I am holding out hope that everything will turn around in October. I know that it’s the season of cold and death and decay, but it leaves me feeling quite optimistic.

Maybe everyone will stay at home and watch horror movies all month. Or they will order candy apples in the mail and have cider delivered to their door. Maybe everyone would just wear a mask for once.

Even wild men wear masks

I have two different Halloween costumes planned, even though I doubt there will be a place to wear them outside of my own living room. Maybe this year we’ll have a Zoomoween.

I’ve said it before, at least Halloween won’t be canceled in my cold, dead heart.

Like usual, I have a handful of cool projects on the horizon that I can’t share with you just yet, but believe me, they’re going to be a lot of fun. Stay tuned.

I’m preparing a short story to publish on the blog next week that I’m hoping will get the goosebumps expanding and the blood pumping faster than usual.

In the meantime, did you know that I started a YouTube channel? There are some weird, new T-shirt designs over in my store. I also hang around on Twitter sometimes, stop by and say howdy.

Unusual Gifts

Need an unusual gift for a unique person? Or a unique gift for an unusual person?

I’ve reduced the prices in my Redbubble shop in addition to the crazy Black Friday weekend deals they’re offering.

If you’re in the market for original, weird and fantastical art on a coffee mug or a tee shirt, come on by.

If not, here’s a wiener dog dancing in a 1920s prohibition-era speakeasy.

Monster Kids

I’ve been extremely busy lately with a big project and I just want to share a little piece of it with you.

This one goes out to all you monster kids. Please stay tuned for more creepy, crawly creatures!
